It's hard out there for a five piece rock band but all you can do is tour and release new records. Ain't a damn thing you can change about anything else: We are all grimly trudging forward in a path pre-determined by the Fates.
I think the Souterrain/Frenchkiss label pairing is a good one. By actually releasing a follow-up record to an under-appreciated second LP, you give a larger audience another chance to discover the over-looked record relatively close in time to when it originally came out.
To me, the Crocodiles are like an undervalued stock with solid fundamentals and under-performing earnings. Those under-performing earnings are more attributable to market conditions then any flaws in the company. My sense is that as market conditions improve, Crocodiles will benefit.
