"The Klitz were Memphis punk ground zero." -Ross Johnson
Recorded by ALEX CHILTON and SAM THE SHAM in one three-hour blast in the summer of '78, Sounds of Memphis is the first archival Klitz release. Widely regarded as Memphis' first punk band and championed by JIM DICKINSON, The Klitz featured GAIL ELISE CLIFTON on vocals and LESA ALDRIDGE (of Big Star's Third fame) on guitar. Sounds of Memphis is a Midtown lo-fi gem. Includes a version of Chilton's "Hook or Crook."

Meet Your Meat September 29 2014
In The Red is proud to announce the debut album from the Meatbodies. Unabashed, unrestrained, beautiful and strange. Meatbodies, birthed from the mind of Los Angeles-bred Chad Ubovich, are going to dominate your eyes and ears and give you a bang over like you've never had before.
But first, a little history on how Meatbodies came to be. Chad Ubovich began ripping through the rock scene in 2011 as guitarist (previously bassist) for Mikal Cronin and, eventually, bassist in FUZZ. In between tours, he spent his time recording and playing shows around Los Angeles under the name Chad and the Meatbodies. In 2012, Ty Segall released some of Chad's bedroom recordings via cassette tape on his GOD? Records imprint. The tape was well received and people began to see Chad was more than just a sideman to his heavy hitting comrades. In 2013, In The Red took notice of Chad's crunching, grinding sound and added his band, now simply called Meatbodies to their roster.
For the first Meatbodies LP, titled Meatbodies, Chad chose to record in San Francisco, utilizing the foggy, psychedelic atmosphere provided by it's surroundings, as well as the powers of master studio magician Eric "King Riff" Bauer (known for his work with Mikal Cronin, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence, FUZZ and more). Chad busted out an album's worth of songs, barely leaving the Technicolor underground quarters of Bauer's trippy sanctuary. Though Chad and Bauer worked mostly alone, a dream team of friends, including Cory Hanson (Wand), Ty Segall, Erik Jimenez (Together Pangea) and Riley Youngdahl, made contributions taking the album to the next level before Chris Woodhouse took on the mixing, giving the songs final touches of controlled chaos. The end result is a sonic experience that is truly evocative of its auteur.
You can pre-order the album now. The first 200 are on color vinyl and will go quickly.
Also available are these suave Meatbodies t-shirts. Available in chocolate brown on light grey tee or yellow on blue tee.
Bored? August 20 2014In The Red is proud to announce the new double vinyl reissue of The Intelligence's debut album, Boredom And Terror. Originally released on Narnack records in 2004, Boredom And Terror is the first time Lars Finberg stepped out from behind the A-Frames' drum kit to showcase his own music. Later releases by the Intelligence were fleshed out with additional musicians but on this debut album Lars was an army of one armed with an 8 track recorder and a notebook full of songs. The results are as original as they are incredible. This is lo-fi post punk electro garage-core that is equal parts Devo, The Fall and something altogether it's own.
