Andrew Jackson Jihad- Holey Man, Holy War + Issue Problems

Holey Man, Holy War is AJJ's first demo and all of its four songs were rerecorded for the band's next two demos, as well as their first full length Candy Cigarettes and Cap Guns. For a demo, the recordings sound pretty good, just more raw. It should also be noted that "Lady Killer" is one of my favorite AJJ songs. Issue Problems has several songs that were rerecorded for the amazing People That Can Eat People Are The Luckiest... as well as one or two from AJJ's split with Ghost Mice. These songs are great folk-punk with interesting/weird/witty lyrics and if you haven't gotten into this band yet, you're missing out. Their new album Can't Maintain just came out and it's awesome. Seriously, I know I say that about a lot of bands/artists but AJJ's new album is their best yet.
