Posted by TheMayor

The Fist Fam are back at you with a new double single, here is what Al Lover has to say : “Two new tracks from my pal Gus Cutty and I, “All Mine” and “Part of the Game” using some samples I stole from a couple of our favorite SF bands, Ty Segall, and Thee Oh Sees. Ty Segall, and John Dwyer were kind enough to give us permission to uses both samples, thanks dudes, y’all are awesome for that. If you don’t know now you know, these band are producing some of the best Rock ‘n Roll out right now, so do your homework. Gus is killin’ the lyrics on both these tracks, and also did the creepy cover art. I made the beats. If you’re not aware this is the 2nd installment of 3 leaks leading up to the release of the new Fist Fam record “Posted” Coming out Winter 2010, so stay tuned.”
