This EP is dedicated in memory of the Great Scott, which announced it would be closing its doors the day this was set to be released. Dave first met Keith at a show there, where doing this recording was discussed. The title "Scumming Attractions" is an allusion to all the places in Boston that are being torn down to make way for big businesses and luxury condos, and the cover photo is of the building the Wreck Center was in, the day it was destroyed so that another condo could be built.
One of the tracks on this ("Rat Race") appears on a benefit comp to help local venues cover their costs during the coronavirus shutdown. You can check it out here- https://quarantineagewasteland.bandcamp.com/.
