It seems like yesterday that I got the Hammer Bros LP (see HERE) although, admittedly, that was after months of waiting. So when I found out a new LP had just come out I was surpised. It felt like a new LP three months after the last one. In reality though, it's probably been easily more than a year since the last one was recorded. I always liked this band, even though most people seem to think they're shite.
This new album is out on a label I had never heard of before - Welfare Records. Their online store didn't work for me and tried to charge me $87 for shipping, so I emailed the dude and he helped me out. I paid for two LPs and they came in 5 days, which is amazing service. Thanks Mike!
I was lucky enough to get the release show version, numbered out of 50. The sleeve is a regular sleeve with a different print stuck over the front. It subtley changes the name of the album fro "The Kids Are Dead" to "The Pigs Are Dead" and shows a picture of some dude punching the crap out of a pig with a police hat on. Nice work.
I also picked up the regular version on limited green vinyl with regular sleeve. I'm not really into the art on the front of the sleeve, although I do like the back of the sleeve:
After one listen I can safely report that this is a good record... although you probably won't believe me.
