Hacksaw - s/t 7"

So the story goes like this: Great American Steak Religion pressed 400 copies of this for Hacksaw's tour in 1998. They were mailed to the band in the States because Hacksaw were from Toronto and they wouldn't have to deal with taking them across the border that way. At the end of tour they took whatever was left (some 200 copies as I hear it) and tossed them in a dumpster because Yannick told them he was going to a repress and they didn't want to deal with the border on the way back up. The repress never materialized though. so who knows how many copies of this are out there?
Oh yeah, the music: it's solid rockin' punk/hardcore. Exceptionally well produced, in my opinion. I'm thinking... like... Swiz with a touch of Torches to Rome.
