My attachment to the album ties directly to another much beloved band around here: Name Taken.
I went to high school with the guitarist and one day we got to talking between classes about our mutual love (, admiration and basically borderline obsession) over Further Seems Forever's The Moon Is Down. While we were talking I noticed his t-shirt (seen below) and asked him about the band (fyi, at this point, the tardy bell had already rung but we didn't care). He began professing his equal amount of love for Tell All Your Friends so naturally, I asked my mom to drive me to Tower Records to purchase it that day. Fell in love almost immediately... and there you have it!
I have that shirt. I wore it on my first day of high school and made friends with a kid because of it.
I can't wait to see this record played next weekend.
