Thrill Jockey will be reissuing the seminal post-rock band’s first two releases as part of the celebrations on April 21.
The two singles were initially released in 1993 – ‘Lonesome Sound’ [artwork pictured] on Thrill Jockey, ‘Mosquito’ on David Sims’ (of The Jesus Lizard) Torsion Music label – and haven’t been available for some time. They feature the band’s original line-up of Douglas McCombs, John Herndon, Bundy K. Brown, John McEntire and Brad Wood.
The singles have been recut to 7” by Bob Weston of Shellac. They feature the original fold-over artwork and, in a nifty twist, the two sleeves can be put together to form a four-panel poster.
The full tracklisting for the two singles is as follows:
