Keeping in the JVA tradition we had going around this time, we decided to release an itunes-only EP of old, redone tracks and b-sides, just for fun. Just like the cassette and the vinyl, lots of the songs that made the cut are really old, or never were released. Somehow Mikey convinced Nick it would be a good idea to rerecord "Pyro" for this album. Hige Driver, a friend of ours from Japan who specialized in making 8-bit pop punk tunes, did a treatment of the already-electronified "Good Time Island" and "Bad Checks and Car Wrecks," and our friends in Floating Opera got a shout out with a cover of their "Ice Storm" tune. Benefit of a Doubt, our good buddies from Springfield, Missouri, got a nod in "Ice Storm" as well. If you're gonna be stranded on a desert island, you'd better have some music you'll never get sick of.

The JV Allstars were a pop-punk band from Lincoln, Nebraska from 2000-2012. They started like any band does, by sucking. In time, they got a little better and had lots of fun and toured a lot and released a bunch of music. Thanks!
