WIMPY GOES TO WASHINGTON (7")

The new 7-inch (limited to 300 copies) features the "Wimpy Goes To Washington" single, and the RARE B-Side "I Fucked Her At Tim Horton's". Both songs were recorded and produced by Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana Studios during the "Canadian Graffiti" sessions. "I Fucked Her At Tim Horton's" is EXCLUSIVE to this 7-inch and will NEVER be officially made available in any digital format. You'll only hear it on wax, on these 300 copies. Artwork by Jake Sauer featuring the Queers' legendary front-man WIMPY RUTHERFORD coming to save AMERICA from itself. Both songs also feature lead guitar by Mr. Precision (88 Fingers Louie/Rise Against).
