Crunch – てんきあめ

With my supply of terrible Crunch puns exhausted I can only suggest listening to the album which is available for foreigners living abroad on the Camp of Bands.

Now On The Camp Of Bands

It includes the original graveyard drunks version which couldn’t be used on the radio as they inconsiderately didn’t bear in mind OFCOM language guidelines during their slanging match.

And tacked on the end is the unrepresentative last part of the Opus for those who can’t spare the eighteen minutes required to listen to the whole thing. Also being stripped of sound effects it does give the ear a clearer view.

As the album is still a long way off I’ve chucked up the track from earlier in the year.
