SIMPLY SAUCER / SHARK TOYS / THREE NEW SHIRTS & MORE! February 21 2018
New stuff available now from In The Red!!
Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited double LP
In 1989 a record label called Mole Sound released an album of previously unreleased recordings done in 1974-75 by Canadian proto-punk band Simply Saucer. The album gained an immediate cult following and, sadly, went right out of print. Byron Coley called it “the best Canadian album ever made”. The NME said the album was, “a divine mix of Pink Floyd (with Syd Barrett still mercifully intact) and the Velvet Underground (when Andy Warhol was at the helm)”. The record has received praise from the likes of Thurston Moore, Jon Spencer, John Dwyer and Ty Segall (who has covered the band’s Bullet Proof Nothing). In The Red is over the moon to announce the first vinyl reissue of this album in 15 years. We have remastered the original LP and added a bonus LP which contains the live show from which the live material on the original album was drawn. Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve and limited edition on splatter vinyl. We don’t get much more geeked about a release than this! You will be a better person with this in your record collection.
Shark Toys - Labyrinths LP/CD
Los Angeles’ Shark Toys have been bashing out their unique brand of frantic, weirdo post-punk for years now and it’s a wonder why ITR hasn’t worked with them before now. Thankfully we are correcting this with the release of Labyrinths - 14 fast paced rippers that have been described by at least one person as sounding like “early No Age meets Tyvek on uppers”. With a constantly evolving line up it is easy to say this is the most aggro version of the band to date. There’s an occasional sax skronk (courtesy of Mikal Cronin), piano plink-plunk, and the spare synth squiggle here and there, but more often than not it’s a batch of four-on-the-floor pogo-friendly numbers that will have even the most jaded message board lurkers rethinking what the Los Angeles underground has to offer. Limited edition on splatter vinyl.
