Yep! Summer´s gone and it´s time to go back to school. Here´s what we´ve got in the lunchbox for you, kids!:
WOVENHAND – 1st album, LP:
WOVENHAND´s first album, dated 2002 finally will be released on vinyl. This is the very first effort bt David Eugene Edwards after 16 Horsepower and this meant the start of a new era in his musical career, diving into foggy and shady passages of folk and blues. Take a walk on the darkest side of Amercian music.
GALLON DRUNK – The rotten mile, LP:
GALLON DRUNK album “The rotten mile”, at last released on vinyl! Originally released in U.K. in 2007 on cd, this awesome record finally sees itself reissued now on vinyl with previously unseen photography as well as liner notes by James Johnston. GALLON DRUNK is actively touring these days and delivering incendiary live acts that prove them to be one of the best bands to ever come out of England. Vaporing from London smoggy sounds and melodies of distortion, swamp, jungle, rock and pure intensity, they fulfill this terrific record which meant back in 2007 the return of GALLON DRUNK taking themselves into the evolution and orientation that their latest records “The road gets darker from here” and “The soul of the hour”. During these years James Johnston as well has been actively taking part in other projects such as member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Lydia Lunch´s Big Sexy Noise. Bang! Records is proud to take part in GALLON DRUNK´s history by releasing this master piece.
KIM SALMON AND THE SURREALISTS – Ya gotta let me do my thing, 2LP:
Finally on vinyl (double LP, gatefold deluxe extended edition) this master piece released back in 1997 only in Australia.
Kim Salmon and Jim Dickinson worked together and created this magnificent record which deserved strongly a vinyl plastic treatment.
All the way from Melbourne, Australia to Memphis, USA. Kim Salmon, once again, exposed his versatility, creativity and imagination in this extense and variated album which takes us from the blaxplaitation pimp soundtrack as understood by Mr. Salmon, up to his genious focus on minimalist sounds.
Kim Salmon, once again…. in this occasion with Jim Dickinson by his side. There is no need to mention anything else.
THE CELIBATE RIFLES – Sideroxylon, LP:
Originally released in 1983, this is The Celibate Rifles´ first album, finally reissued and remastered in order to make it sound as it was originally expected to!
This record meant The Celibate Rifles entering directly into their place as one of Australian most influential bands ever in the high energy sounds alongside Radio Birdman and New Christs.
With Kent Steedman on guitar and a rock solid rythm base, Damien Lovelock guided the band with his personal voice and vocals.
A more than needed reissue in order to understand high energy rock all the way from Detroit to Sydney.
