Hunx and His Punx is the homoerotic vision of San Francisco-

creepy or something and couldn’t find any girls.” Seth
moved on, adding his own songs and lyrics to the collection.

is the star. His voice is awesome- a nasally seductive
combination of a whine and a croon that colors the Gay

between 2008 and 2009 with a bonus track. The
initial singles were released, and quickly disappeared to
the vacuum chamber of eBay speculation. The first pressing
of the LP is also now gone into a similar collector’s
wormhole. We’re now proud to share a full and widely
available release of “Gay Singles” with the world. It’s about
