The Promise Ring / Texas Is The Reason 7" (1996)

Originally recorded to accompany a U.S. tour in 1996, Milwaukee's The Promise Ring team up with the New York City-based Texas Is The Reason for a split 7" that still goes up for serious loot on internet auction sites everywhere despite the fact that it never went out of print and is available right here. Fairly outlandish, for sure, but we can understand why. The Promise Ring offer a slightly out-of-character track called "E. Texas Ave" that packs more punch than pop, while Texas Is The Reason contribute a mournful number called "Blue Boy" — the final track they recorded before breaking up, still exclusive to this EP only.
