FINALLY we can announce a release date of Friday, July 14, 2017 for The Last Four Digits archival LP/CD!
The LP is a limited first pressing of 500 on Coke bottle clear vinyl with 13 tracks, only five of which have ever been released in any form–four on the Hardly Music “Big Picture” 7″ EP from 1981, and one, “Diddy Wah Diddy” which was featured on the 1981 Gulcher compilation of Indiana punk/new wave, Red Snerts. The rest are archival recordings from 1980-1982 that have never seen the light of day.
The vinyl issue also comes with a CD packaged inside the cover and an insert with lyrics and liner notes. Included on the CD are all 13 vinyl tracks, a bonus studio track, and 11 live tracks comprising the whole of the band’s performance at CBGB, NYC in 1982.
The CD is also available separately in a deluxe 4 panel wallet. In other words, no matter whether you buy the LP or the CD, you’ll get all 25 tracks in one form or another. And even with that, we had to leave off a few tracks for space and other considerations which might turn up one day.
Exclusive distribution via Secretly Distribution. All wholesale/distro inquiries should be made to Secretly. You can purchase retail copies from us here, including a few special packages that include original copies of the Hardly Music Big Picture EP. Pre-orders are now being accepted and will ship to arrive on or around July 14.
The band is currently performing live around central Indiana and features five original members. More about the history and mystery of The Last Four Digits at their website.
CHEMOTHERAPY – 7″ EP
Up next is the long-awaited reissue of the very rare 1983 Chemotherapy 12 track EP released by a wild, short-lived high school hardcore band from Carmel, Indiana. We’re releasing 500 copies on color vinyl and finalizing the release date soon. The vinyl is here, the sleeve is in production and as soon as we can confirm a street date, we’ll update this page. Likely no later than September, 2017.
