Een 10” vinyl vol met aanstekelijke, overstuurde, korte garage rock songs die hij zelf opnam en mixte. Geschreven in een vakantiehuisje in Zeeland en met een laptop en wat microfoons opgenomen in een antikraakpand in Woerden. Begin 2014 bracht hij de plaat uit via zijn eigen label Bank Records en hij zou wel zien wat er ging gebeuren, want opgetreden had hij nog niet… Veel zo bleek al snel.
