Geniuses of Crack b/w Answerman

Homestead HMS179-7 7", released 1991 (U.S.)

Following closely on the heels of the Headringer EP was the Geniuses of Crack single on Homestead Records. The b-side on this one, "Answerman", might be my favorite Tsunami was depressing to learn that the band didn't think much of it. This one was on both light blue marble vinyl and black vinyl. The blue version is actually much easier to find. Neither is too difficult, though. Both tracks were later included on the World Tour and Other Destinations CD.
