ISS - (Endless Pussyfooting) LP

Hey everyone. It has been a long time since I've been on here. Life kept me pretty busy over the past month. Anyways, I came across an interesting release a few weeks ago on Bandcamp from Erste Theke Tontraeger, a German label that puts out some really interesting and unique punk. There's an extensive overview of the release on the link, but to summarize, this is the second release from ISS, a punk duo that makes music entirely out of samples from older punk records. Considering that this is a primarily a Hip-Hop forum, this might be an interesting record for some users here.

Never though I'd see an album that references both Eno and GISM, but hey, stranger things have happened. Recognize the drum samples in the first song immediately as Joy Division. Possibly not my cup of tea but I could see people getting into this one.

Re: ETT, they've done some interesting releases. They did a Vanna Inget 7'' EP which is one of my favorite contemporary bands.

Born Without a Face - Sound Recordings 1984-1986 2xLP




BWAF were a somewhat obscure hardcore punk band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. While they were around, they only released two self-released 7'' EPs and two cassettes. Those are pretty tough to find these days and because the band wasn't on a "big" punk label, nothing got reissued until about five years ago. The original version of this reissue was an limited box set that had everything on 2xLP and 2xCD and included posters and some other stuff. I remember seeing it in a store at the time thinking I'd really like to have but I just couldn't justify buying it. Recently I was in a store and was shocked to see this pared down 2xLP set for a price I could live with.

BWAF's sound is very reminiscent of the early 80s Touch and Go sound, but a bit heavier and tougher. Basically if you like like the Fix, Negative Approach, Necros, Die Kruezen, etc. you'll like this band. They also remind me of Poison Idea a little bit at times.

Note: this is limited to 200 copies and I'm not sure how well distributed it is. The usual suspects for punk distros don't appear to be carrying it. If you want it and need a source PM me. The store I got it from had two more copies and if you call them they might be able to ship it for you. I'm also linking to the label but their site hasn't been updated in years, so I'm not sure if they are still in business. Only the boxset from 2012 is listed on their site, not the 2xLP.

"Born Without A Face Sound Recordings 1984-1986" consists of 23 tracks spread out over two 12-inch LPs on 210-gram vinyl, each in its own hand-silkscreened sleeve enclosed in a handmade 19" x 13" magnetic closure box.

The first LP collects all the tracks from the magnificent Freakshow self-released cassette and puts them on one record, restored and re-mastered from the original studio tapes. Until now, Freakshow has never been available on vinyl or CD. Original copies of the cassette are by now over 26 years old.

The second LP collects songs that were originally released on the two 7" EPs, plus one additional track ("Hostages"winking smiley that was originally released on the There's a Method to Our Madness compilation. The tracks on this LP are also from the original studio master tapes. Please note that there were two tracks on the Unbecoming 7" EP that were taken from the Freakshow sessions. These two tracks are only on the Freakshow vinyl, not on the second LP.

Also included in this set is a 22-track CD (vinyl includes one bonus track) of the music, three original 11" X 17" screen-printed release posters, and a sticker.

The magnetic-closure portfolio itself is handmade with archival materials, with a screen-printed black-on-black bookcloth cover and white-on-black inner graphics and information. Designed and manufactured by the band, the Born Without A Face Sound Recordings package is being issued in a limited edition of just 300 copies.

80.00 USD

Wow, that's putting all their eggs into one big heavy basket!
