Dead Uncles’ posthumous LP is lurching toward reality like a patient emerging from the haze of a fever dream. The lacquers have just been approved and we should have test presses back soon.
The quixotic quest to press this future classic on vinyl was hatched by drummer Brian Thompson and 86′d Records – eventually implicating 86'd Records, Lost Cat Records, Shitty Present Records, and the mighty Different Kitchen Records from the U.K. The 10 track album was re-mixed in 2012 and mastered for vinyl by Dave Eck at Lucky Lacquers. The album artwork was re-worked for by Brian Thompson. A one-time pressing of 500 units is planned for a summer 2013 release.
“Stock Characters” was originally released on cassette by We Rise Tapes (Krystina from Curmudgeon’s label) and Trashy Tapes (Sadie from Peeple Watchin‘s label) just before the band broke up in 2012.
It's really happening.
In other news, I'll be helping release a new 4 song cassette entitled "Year of the Wolf" by local thrashers Hedlok. Production should begin on those this week and hopefully be available in the first half of June. Keep an eye out for that and a sizeable distro update shortly.
