Matthew good band raygun

Raygun was a five-song EP released by the Matthew Good Band in 1997 as a followup to their enormously popular indie release, Last of the Ghetto Astronauts. Distributed by A&M Records on Matthew Good's own imprint, Darktown, it was the first MGB album to include guitarist Dave Genn as a member of the band proper. The EP includes a newly recorded version of Haven't Slept In Years; it is not the original version found on Last of the Ghetto Astronauts.
