Stick Men With Ray Guns: 1000 Lives to Die LP
On the heels of End of an Ear's well received "Grave City" compilation of studio recordings, here's the 2nd of two live albums from Dallas' incredibly influential and fucked-before-their-time Stick Men With Ray Guns, "1000 Lives to Die", recorded in 1987 at Dallas' Theatre Gallery during the band's final show. The recordings have been restored / beefed up by Jack Control of Enormous Door Mastering, and lacquers cut by Matt Barnhart at Chicago Mastering Service, befitting this crucial documents of one of US punk's most iconoclastic kamikaze missions. This is the first time these performances from the foursome of Bobby Soxx, Clarke Blacker, Scott Elam and Bob Beeman have been issued on vinyl and short of a goddamn time machine, it's as close as you'll come to being in the thick of a unique moment in band vs. audience history that's unlikely to be matched by anyone in 2016, try as they might. Black vinyl in full colour sleeve with printed inner sleeve and digital download coupon.
