Please Please Me (Awaiting Repress)
Ranked 39/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Sourced From the Original Master Tapes!
Cut at Abbey Road Studios
Pressed on 180 gram vinyl
Once Please Please Me rocketed to number one, The Beatles rushed to deliver a debut album, bashing out Please Please Me in a day. Decades after its release, the album still sounds fresh, precisely because of its intense origins.
Please Please Me hit the top of the UK album charts in May 1963 and remained there for thirty weeks before being replaced by With The Beatles. This was surprising because the UK album charts at the time tended to be dominated by film soundtracks and easy listening vocalists.
In 2012, Please Please Me was voted 39th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was ranked first among The Beatles' early albums, and sixth of all of The Beatles' albums, with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Revolver, Rubber Soul, The Beatles (The White Album) and Abbey Road ranked higher.
Rolling Stone also placed two songs from the album on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time: No. 139, I Saw Her Standing There, and No. 184, Please Please Me. According to Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic, Decades after its release, the album still sounds fresh, the covers are impressive and the originals astonishing.
A team consisting of some of the best producers and engineers in the recording industry were brought together and would spend 4 long years mixing and mastering with some of the most state of the art recording equipment. Treating these records much like a science experiment, engineers ran extensive tests before copying the analog master tapes over into a digital format using 24-bit/192 kHz resolution, and carefully removing clicks, vocal pops and poor edits. Never altering the original songs themselves, just polishing them up a bit.1. I Saw Her Standing There

Begging PleaseBody High is set to release Begging Please, the debut solo album from label head Samo Sound Boy. In an unprecedented approach for an album rooted in club culture, Begging Please, is an honest and unguarded story, relatable to many, but a singular achievement in its unique delivery and detail. Citing Marvin Gaye's Here, My Dear as a key influence, Samo uses his own distinct language to tell a vivid and personal narrative. Lush synth work, jagged percussion, and hauntingly soulful samples, bring us into his autobiographical account of love slowly breaking down and falling apart. The idea that dance music could be considered one-noted or lacking in depth has never made sense to me. I think the very simple way it builds up and down is so fundamentally reflective of living in the world, Samo said recently. What's dark and brooding can give way to the most ecstatic moments, all because one small thing is added or subtracted. Begging Please is a story about the last couple years of my life, told the best way I know how. Following his collaborative DJ Dodger Stadium LP with Jerome Potter, Samo wrote and recorded Begging Please during the second half of 2014 in Los Angeles, California.$19.99Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Tell MeTheir Secretly Canadian debut is one hell of a break-up record. Love is a confusing thing and it always leaves the mind with more questions than answers. Tell Me captures the confusion, denial, sleepless nights, and the desperate pleas for love that can only be felt when the mind gives up control to the heart.

Shape Shift With MeFour years is a measurement of time that America has used for centuries to indicate change. Presidential terms last four years; high school diplomas and college degrees typically take four years apiece, too. It's not an arbitrary thing, either: It typically takes that much time from the declaration of something changing for it to actually change.
Meet Laura Jane Grace. Four years ago, the Against Me! frontwoman came out as transgender; 18 months later, she released the band's sixth album, the fiery Transgender Dysphoria Blues, one which she began working on before her transition and helped document the struggles she was facing. It was an intensely personal record that took on a life of its own, connecting with thousands of new listeners drawn to Grace's honesty and complexity while still pleasing Against Me!'s dedicated fanbase.
Now, four years after Grace's public reintroduction, Against Me! is ready to release their new album, Shape Shift With Me, on Total Treble. While much has changed in the lives of Grace and her bandmates-guitarist James Bowman, bassist Inge Johansson and drummer Atom Willard-in that time period, it's clear that those intervening years have done wonders for creativity.
"Everything with Shape Shift With Me has been really about keeping momentum going," she says. "In between every tour we did for Transgender Dysphoria Blues, I would have a couple songs I had written and we would demo them. At the end of two years of touring, we had an album ready to record. Usually, you come off of touring for a record and you're back at square one. But this was so fully formed it felt like there was no choice but to go ahead and record the songs."
Shape Shift With Me has the distinction of the first album Grace has written truly from the heart, with no metaphorical cloaks cast over the lyrics. It's an album about love, that deceptively complex emotion we all struggle with yet has somehow eluded most of Grace's songwriting for the past 20 years.
"Tons of people have written about love. But while love is clichÉ, it's infinitely relevant. For me, having always been in a punk band that was expected to be political, I never felt like I had that option to write about feelings in that way. That's what I ended up being drawn to this time. It's writing in a way I thought I could never write before, and not giving a shit about expectations."
As such, Shape Shift With Me is a loose concept album about traveling the world and falling in and out of love, with Grace serving as the narrator. But even though she was opening herself up to new songwriting topics, she knew what her mission was from the start.
"Is there a record that is about relationships from a trans perspective?" she asks rhetorically. "There needs to be more records about trans rights and everything like that, but feeling like I already did that, I wanted to move on to write commentary on living from a trans perspective. I wanted to write the transgender response to the Rolling Stones' Exile On Main St., Liz Phair's Exile In Guyville and the Streets' A Grand Don't Come For Free. All those records are relationship records. There's been an infinite amount of records talking about what love means from a cisgender perspective. I wanted to present the trans perspective on sex, love and heartbreak."
With Grace's new motivation came a new outlook on the band, as well. Previous albums found the songwriting process to be a largely solitary experience, but she embraced the spirit of collaboration for Shape Shift With Me-so much so that when Cody Votolato of the Blood Brothers sent her some demos of songs he was working on for another project, she became inspired and ended up co-writing "Boyfriend" and "Norse Truth," two of the album's most memorable tracks, with him.
"It was just about opening up to whatever comes my way karmically," Grace says. "Whatever everyone in the band is willing to offer, I just wanted to be open to it. I didn't want it to be like what it was in the past where it may have felt closed. I want it to be different."
In a career already full of classic punk records, Shape Shift With Me feels like the definitive Against Me! album-it's poppy and catchy ("Rebecca," "Suicide Bomber"), aggressive and in-your-face ("ProVision L-3," "Dead Rats"), sentimental and longing ("Crash," "All This And More"). Moreover, it's the culmination of four years of existence as Laura Jane Grace-there's no going back now, so she might as well embrace it.
"While I've always wanted the moon and the stars, I have a certain amount of humbleness," she admits. "I just want to play shows and make records and write songs. That's what I've always wanted to do. Of course I always want the biggest and best things for those shows and records and songs, but when it comes down to it, I just love doing it. I have no other ambitions or career goals.
"David Bowie put out 27 full-lengths. Prince put out 39 full-lengths," Grace remarks. "That is so inspiring to me-working, creating art, creating records and let everyone else sort it out. That's what I've always wanted to do and that's what I will keep on doing."1. ProVision L-3

Get On Up - The James Brown Story - Soundtrack"The Godfather of Soul." "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business." "Mr. Dynamite." "Soul Brother Number One." For more than 50 years, these and
other honorifics have described American music icon James Brown.
GET ON UP: The James Brown Story - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features studio and standout live versions of many of Brown's top soul/funk
hits-from his first, 1956's "Please Please Please" to "Out Of Sight," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Try Me," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," "It's A Man's
Man's Man's World," and "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine." Also included are two previously unreleased concert recordings heard in the new
film that is in theaters nationwide on August 1. These live, spine-tingling performances of "Please Please Please" and "It's A Man's Man's Man's World"
were recorded at the historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory in Tampa, Florida on April 23, 1966.
In 1986, James Brown was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a charter member. A multiple GRAMMY® Award winner, Brown was honored
with the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1992, and in 2003 he received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Brown died on

Sing In JapaneseIn keeping with the theme of their last release, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes decided to tackle the proud musical tradition of another country, rather than a specific genre. This time they set their sights on the land of the rising sun, Japan, the birthplace of Karaoke. The fact that the Gimme Gimmes are one of the most renowned cover bands around makes this a match made in heaven.
Spike's sweet crooning is universally pleasing, as he proves by deftly belting out the 6 tracks on Sing In Japanese in the dialect in which they were originally written. The boys ply their fun-loving, punk rock style to these Japanese classics, resulting in 6 up-tempo sing-alongs peppered with guitar riffs hotter than wasabi.1. Hero

My Jug And IThis 1966 record is the first of two albums Percy Mayfield recorded for Ray Charles' Tangerine label. A masterful songwriter whose touching blues ballad Please Send Me Someone To Love was a #1 R&B hit in 1950, Mayfield was Ray Charles' favorite author during the '60s handing him such gems as Hit The Road Jack and At The Club and so was signed to the Genius' label.
A true master at expressing the innermost feelings, tangled with vulnerability and sensibility: Life Is Suicide and River's Invitation are two perfect examples of this, along with the wonderful title track, and both are included on this timeless classic. Here on 180 gram vinyl.1. My Jug And I

On TourPressed at R.T.I.
In the original liner notes for Chuck Jackson on Tour (1964), Bob King describes Jackson "a man with pent up talent." Consequently, this LP is the sound of that talent erupting all over the stage of the famed Apollo Theater, the same venue where Jackson had been discovered a few years earlier. Jackson leads the airtight band through raw, sweat-soaked versions of his hits "I Wake Up Crying" and "Any Day Now," giving the audience their money's worth and more. He also includes well-chosen covers, like Marvin Gaye's "Stubborn Kind of Fellow," Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" and the King of the Apollo himself, James Brown's "Please Please Please." In a true testament to his ability, he makes each of these songs his own, infusing every line with deep emotion. If you only know him from his smoothly-orchestrated studio recordings, Chuck Jackson on Tour will give you an entirely new take on this legendary performer. Working from the original Wand analog reels, Sundazed has mastered this explosive album in the rare true stereo mix for an immersive listening experience.

Restoring ForceAfter massive amounts of hype and anticipation, Of Mice & Men blew all expectations out of the water with their
early 2010 self-titled debut, selling over 75,000 copies to date. They didn't skip a beat with their follow up album
- The Flood, selling over 15,000 units in its rst week and another 9k in the rst week of the deluxe reissue
version. The Flood has currently scanned over 130,000 units. They've spent the majority of the last few years
supporting large artists such as A Day To Remember, August Burns Red, Bring Me The Horizon, As I Lay
Dying and more. They've also headlined Warped Tour as well as sold out tours in the US, UK & Australia.
Mice & Men went in the studio with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Bring Me The
Horizon) to record their 3rd full length, RESTORING FORCE. The album does exactly that, it restores the band
as a massive force in the scene that they've thrived in for the past years, but beyond that it showcases the band's
growth as both songwriters and performers. Frontman Austin Carlile returns and gives his most brutal and
honest performance to date while clean singer, Aaron Pauley, who is making his Of Mice & Men debut, truly
shines and will become a star in his own right. The band will hit the road immediately after the release, spending
the entire spring on the road with Bring Me The Horizon and Issues as well as performing as a headliner on
Warped Tour, etc. In making "Restoring Force" the band has created an album that will please the large
hard-rock, mosh-happy fan base that they've accrued over the years, while also allowing them to continue

Leonard Cohen: Live SongsMeticulously Remastered
Sourced From The Original Columbia Records Stereo Masters In Order To Preserve The Sound Of The Original Albums
Leonard Cohen's intimate, emotion-charged live performances yielded the 1973 release Live Songs, which mixes a handful of previously recorded favorites with several new songs, including Passing Thru, Tonight Will Be Fine and the harrowing, rarely-performed 13-minute epic Please Don't Pass Me By (A Disgrace).
By the time Cohen began his recording career in 1967, the iconoclastic Canadian troubadour was already well established as a poet and author. He quickly emerged as one of the eras most original and influential singer-songwriters, building a large and legendary body of work that continues to inspire artists and listeners alike.
Much of Cohen's reputation and mystique was established by his early work for Columbia Records, particularly the five albums he recorded between 1967 and 1974. Now, these five classic albums, unavailable on vinyl for two decades, have been lovingly restored to their original LP format.
For their new Sundazed editions, all five albums have been meticulously remastered and have been sourced from the original Columbia Records stereo masters in order to preserve the sound of the original albums. In keeping with the exacting standards for which Sundazed has become known, each album will be pressed on high-definition vinyl, with complete original cover art.1. Minute Prologue

Kill Bill Vol. 1 SoundtrackFashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility been more apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this oft tongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film in six years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantino evokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energize martial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus the hip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein, concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow finds itself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TV and film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet, Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twisted Nerve, the spaghetti western melodrama of Luis Bacalov's The Grand Duel, Isaac Hayes in full blaxploitation mode on Run Fay Run), Charlie Feathers' vintage rockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, Nancy Sinatra's angst-in-the-pants take Bang, Bang and Santa Esmeralda's disco-era workout of Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. Tarantino's contemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from Meiko Kaji's sultry Flower of Carnage to The 220.127.116.11's loopy Woo Hoo. It's everything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialog excerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the pop music world thrown in for good measure. -- Jerry McCulley1.

The Best Of SadeBy the time this was released in 1994, something unexpected happened. Sade's early work became classic and the later additions boasted even better vocals and songs that nicely improved on the theme. The timeless sound and class always exhibited makes Sade Adu and her band a no-brainer for an appealing compilation.
Like Al Green's Greatest Hits, The Best of Sade doesn't detract from the original albums and is a marker of time, not the end of the act. The ice-princess demeanor and detached vocals worked perfectly for the mid-'80s singles and radio samples Smooth Operator and Your Love Is King. The tracks from the make-or-break second album, Promise, seem less dolorous propped up and sequenced for a compilation. The sensual-to-a-fault The Sweetest Taboo and Never As Good As the First Time both retain their strength here. This set also includes tracks from Sade's comeback CD, Love Deluxe, including Kiss of Life and No Ordinary Love.
As a bonus, The Best of Sade also includes a rare cover of Please Send Me Someone to Love from the Philadelphia soundtrack.LP 1

The Trigger Complex
Ultra Clear Vinyl
Influential Southern California punk rock pioneers T.S.O.L. will make their awaited return in 2017 with a new record label and their 11th studio album, The Trigger Complex.
T.S.O.L., short for True Sounds of Liberty, struck a nerve in the early 80's with their defiant, politically charged self-titled debut EP. At the intersection of punk and gothic new wave, the band's evolution of sound continued resulting in their critically heralded, full-length record Dance With Me (1981) as well as many other fan coveted albums, with various lineup changes and reunions along the way, that cemented their legacy in the punk scene as one of the most influential bands to come out of California.
Now, nearly four decades later, original members Ron Emory, Mike Roche and Jack Grisham have returned to creative heights with one of their most inspired albums in decades with The Trigger Complex. Comprising of thirteen songs, the band's new record runs the gamut of charging punk anthems to brooding rock songs that will no doubt please listeners. Given the country's turbulent, divisive political climate it could not be better timing for the return of one of punk's most important and vocal bands.
"It's a great time to be making music; to have a voice that can be heard," says Grisham. "I'm glad that things look bleak. Political turmoil breeds strength as well as strife. This record allows us to remind people that they aren't alone. We're here."

SONM-EPI-0016xAC / DC
'74 JailbreakDespite longtime AC/DC fans' immediate acceptance of replacement singer Brian Johnson (resulting in one of rock's all-time best sellers, 1980's Back in Black), there was still demand for Bon Scott-era unreleased tracks. Several of their early albums in Australia and Europe (such as T.N.T.) were later combined together for their first U.S. release, 1976's High Voltage, while several tracks were cut from the original versions and never issued stateside. 1984's five-song EP, '74 Jailbreak, features these forgotten tracks from the band's early days. 'Jailbreak' automatically became a concert standard when the EP came out, and it remains a mystery why it wasn't released earlier. Also included is the largely instrumental 'Soul Stripper,' a cover of 'Baby Please Don't Go,' plus a pair of Angus Young-Malcolm Young-Scott originals: 'You Ain't Got a Hold on Me' and the autobiographical 'Show Business.' Although '74 Jailbreak is by no means a definitive collection of early rarities (such compositions as 'Fling Thing,' 'Love Song,' 'Stick Around,' 'R.I.P.- Rock in Peace,' and 'School Days' remain unreleased in the States), it is a worthwhile, brief snapshot of early AC/DC.

Over the course of travelling and touring for the last two years I inhabited many cities and landscapes. While I wrote this EP and the album that will follow, everything changed. As I wrote the songs I began to reflect more and more the world that I saw around me, incredibly bright, technologically breathtaking. I am curious about being a person in this world, and I tried to write that into the music." Emmy explains.
An impressive cohort of talent signed up to assist Emmy's latest creation. Wild Beasts' Tom Fleming joins Emmy for lead single 'Swimming Pool', a haunting siren-song that submerges us in an affluent montage, replete with rippling keys and dream laden bass.
The sweet musings of 'Social Halo' question our role in an increasingly self-aware world, the resulting social anxiety and the fleeting moments of reality that revive us from its ever quickening pace.'Solar Panels' builds to a crescendo of synthesisers as Emmy reflects on what it is that keeps us going before 'Somerset (I Can't Get Over)' seeks a lover's attention - "Come outside," she sings. "Let's talk about something that's real, like, please don't get over me."
Recording was split between LA, with Ludwig Goransson (Haim, Childish Gambino), and London, with Dave McCracken (Oh Land, Beyonce). MIA's MD Neil Comber mixed the final results.
A singer-songwriter gifted with a rare idiosyncratic charm, Emmy The Great released debut album First Love to critical acclaim in 2009 with follow up Virtue (2011) winning equally impressive plaudits. Songs that walk the line between heartbreaking fragility and bold, wit-laden observations on the human condition continue to enthrall all who hear them. Her keen observational eye has no doubt contributed to her recent success as a writer, with regular contributions to Vice and The Guardian.
The accompanying visuals were devised by Emmy herself, beginning with 'Swimming Pool's enigmatic clip, shot poolside in a decaying LA home, where the final interaction between a hologram and its owner betrays a flaw in our technological Utopia.1. Swimming Pool feat. Tom Fleming (Wild Beasts)

Less Bling, More Zing
We chose a powder-coated aluminum housing for these headphones because the added mass means smoother transitions from the lowest frequency range to the highest. You might also enjoy the authentic 60's style, which goes perfectly with skinny ties and sullen glances. The genuine top-grain leather padded head-strap is Brylcreem resistant.
The Top of the Range Prestige Series Headphone. The new SR325e has a new driver and cable design. The added mass from the metal housing minimizes transient distortions. With the new 8 conductor cable design you will notice superb control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, with both supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR325e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.
... I close my eyes, and suddenly the bells, the bows and drum sticks are in front of me, conveying more than sound, but ultimately their very existence through an aural archive of this sonic bliss.

Twist UptownThe Crystals' first LP Twist Uptown, originally released in the summer of 1962, occupies an important position in Phil Spector's remarkable body of work. As the first full album produced by Spector and the first LP to be released on his legendary Philles label, it's a crucial cornerstone in the building of the fabled Wall of Sound. Beyond its historic significance, though, Twist Uptown retains a timeless resonance, thanks to Spector's seminal studio wizardry and the Crystals' sweet-but-streetwise vocal magic.
The New York-based Crystals, all of whom were still in their teens at the time, were handpicked by Spector as the first act signed to Philles, and the first performers to receive the full-on Wall of Sound studio treatment. The quintet quickly scored major successes with their Spector-produced singles There's No Other (Like My Baby) and Uptown. The latter, penned by Brill building stalwarts Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, also made history for introducing a new level of gritty social realism to pop.
Indeed, Twist Uptown perfectly embodies the combination of yearning innocence and worldlier emotions that would come to define Spector's greatest work. In addition to the aforementioned classics and the minor hit Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby, the album features such lesser-known girl-group gems as I Love You Eddie, Please Hurt Me, What A Nice Way to Turn Seventeen and the one-of-a-kind oddity Frankenstein Twist, along with an early version On Broadway, actually recorded before the Drifters' reworked hit version, and an upbeat take on the Carla Thomas chestnut Gee Whiz.1.

Hair Of The DogHair of the Dog is the sixth studio album by the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, released in 1975. The album was recorded at Escape Studios, Kent, United Kingdom with additional recording and mixing at AIR Studios, London, and is the band's biggest selling album, having sold two million copies worldwide.
After three albums with Deep Purple's Roger Glover producing, Manny Charlton stepped into that position, one he filled for several subsequent albums.
It was Nazareth's first big hit album (aside from the minor success of Razamanaz), including classics such as the title track, Love Hurts (on the US version, but not the Canadian/European, it replaced the original Guilty), Beggars Day and Please Don't Judas Me.
The album title is often considered to be a shortened form of the phrase describing a folk hangover cure, the hair of the dog that bit you. However, according to Dan McCafferty, the title is a play on heir of the dog, i.e. a son of a bitch. This was the title the band had intended for the album, but the label did not approve and had the name changed, although nearly a thousand album covers were printed. The original Heir of the Dog album covers are very rare and worth a small fortune to collectors. The title track is sometimes mistakenly called Son Of A Bitch because of its hook (now you're messin' with a son of a bitch).Side A

Blood // Sugar // Secs // TrafficHey, what's this? Well that, my friend, is the newest album from The
Gotobeds, entitled Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. It's their second
full-length LP and their first for Sub Pop. Whoa, whoa, please slow down.
I'm already completely lost. What you just said sounded like a stream of
complete gibberish. Okay, I'll lay it out for you and if you have any
questions could you yell them at me? SOUNDS GOOD. The Gotobeds
formed vaguely around 2009 in Pittsburgh and play a mutant strain of rock
music that is often filed under punk, indie rock, or 99-cent discount bin.
WAIT, THE GOTOBEDS? I HEARD THEY WERE KNUCKLEHEADS! Only if
the knuckle is the part of the human body that contains the brains. Much
like their previous releases on underground stalwart labels like Mind Cure
and 12XU, this new album artfully slips intelligence and experimentation
into a dying art form. It's a harder feat than you'd think.
And sure, their live shows have often been compared to an all night party
where I feared for my life and the lives of everybody in the five block
radius, and their recorded output is akin to the sonic manifestos of four
men deprived of human love and raised on beer and Swell Maps, Mission
of Burma, and old Fall records. But what you get with The Gotobeds,
delivered in spades on this album, is smart, noisy rock with just the right
amount of stupid.
FAIR ENOUGH. SO HOW'D THIS GET MADE? It was recorded in bursts
over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in
Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in
blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin
stroking curate's egg. You like loud, double guitar leads? OF COURSE I DO.
WHO DOESN'T? You're in luck, because this album is carpeted with em,
thanks to Eli Kasan and TFP. On a song like 'Bodies,' it sounds as if
you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible.
Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback
and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song
like Red Alphabet to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of
Crisis Time to punch through.
THIS ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED
TO CARE ABOUT? Eh, probably not. Except that Tim Midyett (Silkworm,
Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and some bum (Protomartyr) are featured as
guest vocalists on Rope and Why'd You, respectively. Also, I'd be remiss
to not mention the fact that the band's live show is a testament to the
cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights. If
you don't believe me, ask the bands they have played with, like Total
Control, Tyvek, or The Replacements. Also, they rep Pittsburgh harder than
anyone possibly could and come off better for it...which is saying
I THINK I UNDERSTAND. BLOOD // SUGAR // SECS // TRAFFIC IS THE
GREATEST ALBUM SINCE THE LAST GOTOBEDS RECORD? Yes. Now
