To commemorate the proper official release of their first 3 tapes on Fat Possum, the HOOPS boys share the previously unreleased VHS visuals for one of the tracks that got us into the band in the first place, Tape #2 highlight "4U", filmed at Drew Auscherman's house during the recording of the tape:
