Panzram REFORM and Single
Long overdue, here we have two brand new Panzram releases in time for tour. The first is the "Reform" 10" released by IFB Records. Seven songs that were recorded at Heinrich's and Unit 19 in Tampa by Carson Cox & Pat Brady.
The cover image(above) is all we have available as we are still screen printing these. The jacket is a pretty neat-o design courtesy of the True Daddy Of Rock and Roll, Joe Lachut - kind of a gatefold-envelope sleeve? When the packaging is all done I'll upload some photos. In the meantime, enjoy the sounds, these are the final digital masters, courtesy of Lucky Lacquers. The vinyl does sound much better, however(based on the test presses). These should be all set in time for tour- which will be discussed in a super soon-to-come post here - but the OTHER record will be a different story...
Here is the newest material yet(until we record with Will at Dead Air on May 12th during the tour) from Carl Panzram & the Bungalow Beach-outs. It must be noted somewhere(here) that Carson did a fine job on this recording(same session as the 10") and patiently assisted through several mixes. Two originals and a cover, the A side being a longer jimmy-jam.
A Side: A New Mental Disorder For Youth In Disapproval
B Side 1: Aborted Man
B Side 2: Fall(Psychedelic Furs)
Again, these are the masters by Lucky. Chris Donaldson(Drugged Conscience) is helping us with this one, to the point that he's enlisting 50 test presses to ship in time for tour. The packaging will be a screenprinted envelope sleeve with the Snazzy-by-Lachut design above. Again, once all is assembled, I'll provide photo documentation. We're racing against time with this one, tour kicks off April 29th and we're hoping to have the 50 test presses in time. Packaging for the tests will be the same, just no label design on the records as is custom with the test-press. We'll be scribbling and stamping on them instead. Thanks be to Chris for rushing this and Lucky for mastering the tracks in a hurry. So, this will be with us in time for tour in the form of test presses. The reg'lur record will come some time later.
A small run of tapes with the above material will be pressed by Sacred Tapes in time for the tour also. Thanks to Chris Sommer for that! Next update will be a tour rundown/plea for mercy and assistance.
