    Shit's cool. Few little corrections though.
    Paddy played bass on the Art of the Underground single, which was released in 2006, not 2008.
    The Tiltwheel split 7" was also 2006.
    The split 7" with Dear Landlord was '07, not '08.

    And I don't know if this is supposed to be a complete discography or not, but...
    In 2007, they contributed "Goddamn Job" to the "We'll Inherit the Earth" compilation on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records.
    In 2009, they contributed "Headlights Ditch" to the "Let Them Know" compilation on BYO Records.
    In 2010, they contributed "Next in Line" to the "Untitled 21" compilation on Red Scare.

    And, in 2003, they had a CD-R, which may or may not be called "The 'Choose Your Own Title' Album." That could just be a dumb internet name that got stuck to it. I don't remember how many songs, but (I think) that everything on it got released/re-recorded later, with the exception of one song called "Gargoyles on the Skyline."

  2. I generally don't include albums where the band is one of many and has only contributed one song to the release. For instance, if an OWTH song were to ever end up on a Punk-O-Rama compilation, it would not be included on this list. Most of the time, I rarely even include split releases with other bands but from time to time I will. I chose to include them with this particular band.

  3. Anyone know if there's a zip file out there with all the "Split" songs on it? I've been looking for a lot of these songs for the past week. I found some on Itunes but some I can't find anywhere.

    anyone know where can I find a rar or zip file of the split with the measure (sa)?

  5. I love their track on the split with Discharge
