“Love Is Like Lightning” (by Benji Cossa)
This long lost 1999 single-sided 3-song 7" gets the reissue treatment from SBR. Well, actually Benji just stumbled upon a box of them and now we're selling them here. Get the vinyl now. We're also putting it out as a free digital release for a limited time only.
Benji made these recordings in his junior and senior years of college, many moons ago, in thenineties, '97-'98 to be exact. He used his Yamaha 4 track to capture the magic, his house at 144 1/2 Prospect St as his studio. He recorded some of the music in his bedroom and some in the basement.
Three songs are squeezed on to one side of 7" vinyl. Below you'll find Benji's commentary on each number.
Love Is Like Lightning: a rather scary #, I think, about impending doom.
If U Know What's Good 4 U: Another scary # about scorn and the threat of childish retaliation and self-abuse after considering the option of rejection.
Hearts and Cigarettes: About a hot girl.
