Olivelawn single back in January, but at the time I didn't realize this highly limited split single (with the altogether unknown Jack of Hearts) even existed - that was until I stumbled upon it while browsing an Ebay seller's list this past winter. Yes, I lead quite the exciting life. Anyway, as far as Olivelawn recordings go, this isn't particularly seminal - a slightly muddy audience recording of the Sab's "Symptom of the Universe," given the O grunge-ola treatment of course. The results are exactly what you might expect. The Jack of Hearts, as already stated, are the unknown quantity on this wax, doling out the uninhibited fuzz-pedal freakout "Box of Love," and a less than memorable run-through of "Jumpin' Jack Flack," driven straight into the ground via a patently pitible vocal performance.
