Born Ruffians – “First Date Kid” (Feat. David Monks)

Born Ruffians PR 2010

This track, from Born Ruffians’ new tour and digital EP, features Tokyo Police Club’s Dave Monks, for what must have been the most polite and self-effacing recording session of all time.

Plinky Plonk EP is out now on Born Ruffians’s tour, and out digitally 11/15 via Warp.
