The Initial Friend E.P.

The Initial Friend E.P. was the first release put out by Los Angeles based rock band Rilo Kiley. It was initially a self titled release that was put out by the band independently in 1999. They re-pressed it with altered artwork and track-listing in 2000, and then did the same thing again for a third pressing in 2001. All three releases commonly sell on eBay for between $250–400 and are fairly rare. Unlike their later releases which would be thematic lyrically, "Initial Friend" had songs all over the board both in topic and in style. "Frug" and "85" were included in the soundtrack to the Christina Ricci film Desert Blue, which led to the band's heightened popularity and eventual signing to a record label.

Famous quotes containing the words initial and/or friend:

    For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    “You the one, I the few”
    said John Adams
    speaking of fears in the abstract
    to his volatile friend Mr. Jefferson,
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
