As you may or may not know, for the past four years In The Red has partnered with Henry Rollins’ 2.13.61 label
to release some limited edition archival 7” records. Up until now we’ve sold them as RSD releases and they sold exclusively to stores where they sold out immediately. Going forward we will be releasing our co-releases online at www.intheredrecords.com.
Henry did a commercial for us, check it out here!
We are proud to announce our latest co-release - a reissue of the Four Plugs - Wrong Treatment / Biking Girl 7” !
Originally released in 1979 on their own Disposable Records, this record was the brainchild of John Irvine in the UK. The record was pressed in a tiny edition, was played on John Peel several times and vanished without a trace. An excellent example of the UK DIY scene of the time later popularized on the Messthetics compilation series. It ranks number 12 in the top 100 DIY singles list that ran in Ugly Things issue #78. We’ve repressed it in an edition of 400 on red, purple, double mint green and olive green vinyl.
Also, to celebrate this new release we have done limited (200 of each) re-presses of our four previous co-releases on new color variants. Once these are gone there will be no more pressings of these titles. We have…
Alan Vega - Murder One Pts. 1 & 2
This one was originally done in an edition of 200 and went FAST. It comes in two different picture sleeves which we’ve done on two different color vinyl variants different from the first pressing.
Gun Club - Eternally Is Here / Psycho
Two exclusive live Gun Club tracks including the band’s only known performance of the Sonics’ Psycho. Light blue with dark blue splatter vinyl.
Ruts DC - War On Crime / War On Crime (version)
The legendary UK band Ruts DC were kind enough to let us issue these fantastic dub versions of War On Crime mixed by Prince Fatty. The original pressing was 200 copies. This pressing is on yellow, black and green (Jamaican flag colors) vinyl.
Pure Hell - Wild One / Courageous Cat
These are the earliest known recordings of this legendary Philadelphia punk band. These songs were cut on the New York Dolls’ tape machine in 1975 and put onto an acetate which Henry Rollins located a few years back. The songs were sonically restored by our pal Time Warren. This new limited edition is yellow vinyl with black splatter.
Also, we have very limited quantities on these:
Warm Drag - Your Thunder And Your Lightening / Butch Things (Six Tonnes De Chair Records, France)
Our very own Warm Drag released this new single in france earlier this year. We have a very small amount available. It’s incredible!
Christopher Alan Durham - Peacetime Consumer 7” - Gratiot Crawl / 50’s House Blues
Our pals have done it again at Spacecase. Peacetime Consumer is the new 45 from Detroit’s Chris Alan Durham (Roachclip, The Bibs, Church Shuttle and co-founder of All Gone Records). This one’s lo-fi and captures the Midwest sound. For fans of The Mirrors and Jim Shepard. Pressed in an edition of 300 copies on black vinyl.
