I hope everyone had a nice holiday, and I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year! I apologise for not being around lately, responding to your comments, or filling your requests. Honestly I'm not sure if my hearts in this anymore. I thought some time away might help me get a little fire back. Anyway, please accept this little gem as a token of my appreciation for you continued support.
The Earwigs were a four piece from Orange County California formed by Michael Ubaldini in 1978. Unfortunately this single was their only release. It was mastered, and pressed at Gold Star Studios; home of Phil Spectors wall of sound. I read there was an album recorded that never saw the light of day (man I would love to hear it!!). The Earwigs called it quits in 1984 for many of the usual reasons. If you would like to read more about the band, you check out theirMyspace.

Shotgun Solution's main purpose is to share my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, called Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records linkto see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days.. If you think you might be able to help me out on any of these... Please Email Me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
