Toe Rag Sessions
Released: 20th September 2019
|LP||£19.99||Pre-Order||Dispatched on or before Friday 20th September 2019|
14 cuts from their first recording studio sessions of Sept 2-4 1994. Originally the band recorded 23 songs but in October 1994 Ben fired the drummer and decided to re-mix everything.
Dec 1994: Ben erases the drum track and re-drums it himself. Ben decides to jettison most of the songs and suggests 10 cuts for the debut so we decide on a 10” (See: Crypt-060 10” - Country Teasers “Pastoral / S/T”, also reissued.)
And here they are at last: the 13 tracks cut at Toe Rag that didn’t make it onto the Pastoral 10”, PLUS the original version of “Black Cloud Wandering”.
In a sumptuous gatefold containing ancient pre-interWeb communication forms (letters, faxes, etc).
It would have made a damned great debut album in 1994.
It IS a damned great album in 2019 (and forever!)
