Publisher's Statement :
Ugly American #13 copyright 1999 Ugly American. All rights you fuck reserved. Don't bother sending promos, because if we want to get our hands on a record, we will. Don't bother removing us from your promo list, because Ugly American has already been removed from every mailing list extant. You may send advertisements, but you won't get a good review in exchange, and furthermore your ad will be immediately set on fire and then returned to you in little ashy pieces via Federal Express using whatever paltry funds you've sent. This issue dedicated to HMV Records, whose quaintly generous 100% money-back guarantee enabled us to purchase and then subsequently return approximately 9,000 records released within the past year. Finally, there are no subscriptions, trades, samples or McDonald's tie-ins, and the only reader survey you'll ever see asks the following question: "Who do you think you're kidding?" There is no prize.
