After 8 years, 4 small records, 1 big record, and a couple of tapes, Kim Phuc is calling it quits. Surely you, the 3 people reading this(Hi Mom), are wondering in a flabbergasted self narrative "why would they walk away from such wealth and accolades?" Well Mom, the answer is; this shit stopped being fun.

Playing in this band was a great experience on all fronts, and from making friends to crafting our musicianship we all grew in this opportunity. Nothing in the real world is going to replicate the feeling of blowing away whatever limp wristed flavor of the month band would decide to tour through Pittsburgh in a hatchback with combo amps. I hope the drive to the next city was fun, stuck for hours with the realization you were embarrassed by some yokels in a band no one talks about, from a city no one goes to.

To look at us, one can easily see that it is a miracle we get dressed in the morning. Obviously we owe some thanks to everyone that helped us accomplish all this bad ass shit we've done. Enormous thanks go out to: Jensen and John from Iron Lung records, Timmy Hefner, Greg Daly, Mikey from Dear Skull/Mindcure records, Darius at Criminal IQ, Fat Rich and Jay at Parts Unknown, WALLS, SLICES, Bomba, Jeff Gentle and all of our gf's/wives who put up with with us being in this band.

We are going to do one final show, which will be announced somewhat soon. There will be no reunions, represses or post humus releases after that. Thanks everyone and sorry for the tinnitus.

Up until now, you've bought all the bullshit we've passed off as music, or maybe you just downloaded it. Ok, let's face it, you never listened to this retarded band, but thanks to the 5 of you that feel sorry for us pretend you are paying attention when we play but you are really just thinking about that time you got to fingerbang two girls in one night back in high school. It's cool, we understand. Now you can put your money where every suicide girl's hands have been, right in our fucking pockets. We have new shirts for sale. Designed by fellow mutant Bill Wehmann

this is what they look like:

These are $12 bucks ppd. They come in black as pictured, and beige with black ink. Both look sick as fuck and will let any and all mutants know that you are down to get shitty. We also have unearthed copies of the Weird Skies 7" that we are selling for $6 ppd. We'll sell both for some awesome deal like $15 dollars together. How's that grab ya fuck face? You can send paypal monies to burnedtotheground at Any questions about this stuff, please email us goldenhappiness at gmail. See what I did there? If you do not live in the US, do not try to buy our shit.
