Lambchop Rarities Released as Grapefruit Record Club LP

[ 0 ] December 13, 2010 |

Grapefruit Records, a subscription-only record club founded by Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg, released a limited, vinyl-only LP of rare early Lambchop recordings. The early recordings, entitled “Turd Goes Back: Essential Tracks from Secret Secret Sourpuss & Big Tussy,” will join Richard Youngs, L. Eugene Methe, and 200 Years, as part of their 2011 series subscription-only Grapefruit Record Club.

Annual subscriptions include four quarterly released full-length LPs and a deluxe, hard-shell box to house the series of records that make up that year’s roster of artists. USA, Canada, and International subscriptions are available.

Lambchop is fortunate to be included in the list of 2011 releases because, as stated on the website, “the only qualification required for artist participation is that both Ben and Simon love the music.”

From the Grapefruit Records website:

Over the past twenty or so years, Lambchop has proven again and again that they are one of the best American bands to ever assemble. They never repeat themselves, yet always maintain a utterly distinct and singular style to songwriting and performance. I remember it was late at night the first time I listened to their album How I Quit Smoking, and as I fell asleep, the song, “Theone” drifted into my dreams. Once I awoke, I searched the record for the song and stood dumbfounded in a semi-conscious state as its beauty washed over me. Surrealistic qualities weren’t an isolated experience, I soon realized, and I came to understand that it’s the unique perspective and particular quirks of Lambchop which define the band most succinctly. This LP is an assemblage of Kurt Wagner’s early recordings, taken from two rare cassettes, and I swear you can hear his emerging talent bleeding out of the speakers.
