This 7″ features Lou playing with Bob Fay and Eric Matthews of Cardinal. It comes in a number of different version. What I believe is the standard edition comes on black vinyl and with a black and grey sleeve. There is also a clear vinyl version with this sleeve. It also comes with a Sonic Bubblegum insert. There is also a version with a black and red sleeve.

Losercore – 7″ – Smells Like Records – 1992
From the title to Lou’s patented downstroke guitar style its classic solo Lou. There is a second pressing of this record which comes with a coverless sleeve. It generally seems to come in a beige sleeve although my copy has a white sleeve. The label on the record itself is brown rather than white as it is on the standard version
