Naked Raygun - Understand? LP and Jettison LP re-issues

Naked Raygun were a post-punk band from Chicago, emerging somewhere in the early 80's and had more in common with Hüsker Du or Gang Of Four than with let's say The Ramones. I found about this band from the "File 03" EP by The Hope Conspiracy when they covered "Treason", and the Big Black fans out there, know that 2 of these guys also played in that band.
Quarterstick re-issued their entire catalog a few years ago on CD, and now Haunted Town Records took the time to re-release 2 of their albums. "Jettison" is commonly considered their masterpiece, I've honestly never listened to "Understand?", but the cover also doesn't really invite me to do so. Either way, Naked Raygun definitely deserve the re-issue attention.
