This was the first Larvae song ever written way back in 1997. It was originally called Near and was later remixed in 1999 to be Near Miss. In the two years between the first draft of this song and the final, tempos had been creeping up and up and the original 160 of Near didn't seem so fast anymore, so we bumped it up closer to 180. The B-Side was remixed by Jeremy of underwater, but kept with the original song's tempo. This record was pressed very badly, and consequently we have never tried very hard to promote or sell copies of it. The track lengths were just too long to fit comfortably on a 7" so in the end, the record plays about 6db lower than it should. Near Miss was also featured on the first sub:marine CD compilation in 2001, and the 7" was later given a sub:marine catalog number once the label had been established.
