Complete Jawbreaker Page: Odds 'n' Ends

"It's never going to be like it could have been..." trivia:
� The original cover art for Unfun was a photo of a guy getting his face bashed in.
� Before Jawbreaker's temporary breakup at the end of the summer of 1990, the band had temporary plans to record a tour EP with "covers and stuff" (Blake's words) for Skene! Records. This EP probably would have been similar to the Chesterfield King 12", as the band was already playing a version of "Pack it Up" at the time of the tour; "Big," "You're Right," "Tour Song," the unknown song from June 22, 1990, and possibly "Freebird" would have been other potential candidates for inclusion on the record, although the band might have been saving of these tunes for an LP on New Red Archives - another project that was scrapped with the breakup of the band.
� Adam remastered 23 songs for Etc., but decided that there would only be room for twenty. The Etc. "outtakes" were a mono demo version of I Love You So Much It's Killing Us Both, and the Albini versions of Boxcar and The Boat Dreams From the Hill.
� Blake noted in a 1996 interview that he wanted to call the next Jawbreaker album "Tenth Listen."

Blake auctioned off his Les Paul guitar on eBay in 1999.

Between Jawbreaker and Jets to Brazil, Blake sat around and played video games like Independence Day.
