fluf, who I dedicated an entry to (and their prime mover, "O") way back in '07. fluf drummer "Miles" comprises one third of 4's lineup, and although "O" (Otis Barthoulameu) didn't play on this snappy looking single, he did tweak the knobs when it was committed to tape. I don't have any vital stats on the other players, Matt and A.J. (I suppose last names would help). The Past and the Present's three numbers fall safely under the grunge-punk realm, particularly the b-sides (can you say Sub Pop era Tad?). The relatively melodic a-side "Adjustable," wins my vote for the most satisfying track here, but then again what do I know? I'm just a music blogger. Folks, please feel free to shed any more light on these guys.
