EP #2
1. Reservoir
2. Breakfast at Taxi Driver's
3. Action
4. Atomic Fireball
5. Hubcap City

Recorded by Neil Fried at Railroad Earth Studios. As with the previous 5 song EP, Hubcap City uses different covers for almost every copy distributed. This studio record is wildly different from not only the previous studio record, but also the live versions of those songs available on the 2001-2002 live album. For example, "Action" uses a cornet on top of the guitar and drums. And, "Reservoir" is the most well-produced Hubcap City recording ever.
Released independently by Hubcap City.
