More info:

From Lance's original J Church website: "Mike made this as a Broken Rekids sampler featuring most of the bands on his label. Yes, that's the actual name of it. He had the title translated into Japanese characters and as you can see there were a few mistakes. Our songs were November and Back To Hawaii. Ooh, rare song. From our third gig with Aaron on drums. The ending bridge of the song is taken from Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell. I would like to comment right now that we covered that song before Pinhead Gunpowder was even a reality."

The cover has the transliterated Japanese words rather than the characters. Says Mike: "I took a class in Japanese. 'Gomenasai, Bakka-No Gaijin-Desu' is good Japanese. Gomenasai = 'sorry', Bakka-No = 'smart no', ie. stupid, Gaijin = rude slang for 'outsider/foreigner', Desu = 'is/this/just'."

The track list above is as per the tape, hence the strange title for Back To Hawaii.
