Joan of Arc on Cassette
Word on the street is that Joyful Noise Recordings will be releasing the last 3 Joan of Arc full-lengths on cassette! (Joan of Arc, Dick Cheney, Mark Twain – Boo Human – Flowers) So if your car is super old like mine and is without a cd player, you’ll soon be able to rock some JOA while you embark on your various car related journeys! Just think! You could brew a cup of JOA coffee, break out the walkman and rock your JOA cassettes while you jog down to the record shop to check out Don’t Mind Control on orange or green vinyl!
