We love going all out to offer packages that surpass our customer’s imagination and we’ve done it again by taking “Creatures for Awhile” from Personality Crisis to a whole new level. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their 1983 seminal recording, we have created an extremely limited pressing of only 200 copies on gorgeous ruby red clear vinyl embedded with smokey black striations. We will NEVER press this variant again and it WILL substantially increase in value over time, as an extremely rare collector’s item.
We knew this wasn’t enough to put this package over the top, so we dug deeper and added an 11” x 11” reproduction of the original retail promotional poster for the L.P. in full color on sturdy 100 pound glossy stock. This poster is suitable for framing and it’s as sharp and clear as the original. The 40th anniversary edition also contains the original two sided black and white lyric sheet on 11” x 11” 100 pound gloss stock.
The LP is now available for immediate purchase and shipping so jump over to our webstore here and order your copy now, because these ruby gems will sell out quickly!
Modernettes “View From The Bottom” arrived in 1982 and we’re celebrating that fact on Limited Edition red vinyl! The band’s sophomore E.P. saw anchors Buck Cherry and Mary Jo Kopechne, joined by guitarist Randy Valentino and drummer Ian Noble. Dryer in production than their Bob Rock helmed debut “Teen City,” “View From The Bottom” has all the power-pop songwriting smarts that Modernettes fans expect.
From the gratifying burst of “I Can Only Give You Everything” to Mary Jo’s haunting rendition of the Velvet’s “Femme Fatale” View From The Bottom is a 5 song outing that’s nothing but quality. We’re freshening up the audio like we do around here and an anniversary insert will be included in the package. Words from John (Buck Cherry) Armstrong himself will be juxtaposed with a take on the 18” x 23” black and white poster that was included in the original release. Find out more on the band’s Artist and Store pages… Pre-Orders are now on for this expected late spring release here.
But WAIT!!!! We’re not done yet! Hardcore skate-punk milestone “Born Too Soon” from the legendary S C.U.M. has just been re-issued. Minted a classic upon release in1985, “Born Too Soon” captured the local Montreal legends in a huge production that foreshadowed the Bad Brains “I, Against I.”
Fans of Black Flag, D.O.A. and yes… Bad Brains will salivate at the opening salvo of the imperialist take down “Home Away From Home” and the brutal truth of “American Mould.” Skaters will want to shred their neighbor’s coping once the opening chords of “Pool Hunt” hit, and the spiritually oppressed will find peace in “Double Cross and “No Hope Religion.” It’s mid-‘80s hardcore at it’s very best. Out of print for decades the L.P. package contains a revised insert and opaque pink vinyl as well as a download code that includes never before released demos from the band’s very first recording sessions!
The band and producer have worked feverishly to create completely revamped and remastered audio for this production and we are loving the extra edge and dirt they ground out of it. This is a completely re-imagined release that exceeds the original. The LP is shipping! Order here now!
