Lambchop - Turd Goes Back

Lambchop’s Turd Goes Back: Essential Tracks from Secret Secret Sourpuss & Big Tussy is a collection compiling prolific band-leader Kurt Wagner’s “early recordings” from two hard-to-find cassettes. It’s out in an edition of 200 LPs by Grapefruit Music Club, the subscription/vinyl-only imprint run by Ba Da Bing’s Ben Goldberg and Simon Joyner, a man who’s also committed a bunch of pretty, off-kilter tracks to tape. Speaking of the lo-fi ’90s, “Came Home Late”’s intimate warping atmosphere reminds me of Shrimper kingpin Dennis Callaci’s Paste project. Listen:

15 “How Many Times Did They Play Iko Iko?”

Turd Goes Back: Essential Tracks from Secret Secret Sourpuss & Big Tussy is out now (to subscribers) via Grapefruit. They note: “A Full-Subscription includes 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.” There’s also a “Half-Subscription” available. (Looking forward to Richard Youngs’s Long White Cloud.)
