Album Minus Band is the debut full-length album from DIY collective Bomb the Music Industry! It was recorded by ex-Arrogant Sons of Bitches frontman, Jeff Rosenstock, in a bedroom as an unexpected creative outburst during a month-long sobriety spree. The album contains “Unlicensed cover songs. Unlicensed audio samples. Great times.” It is available for free download on the band’s website, as well as on Quote Unquote Records’ website. The title of this record would go on to inspire the name of a fan-sourced tribute album entitled "Album Minus Jeff".
