SUBSONICS "Subsonics" LP
After grumbling for 30 years waiting for the first two albums from Atlanta’s SUBSONICS to appear on our preferred long playing format, we delinquents at Slovenly Recordings have taken the matter into our own leathery clutches and proudly present the first ever vinyl versions of “Subsonics” (1992) and “Good Violence” (1993). Criminally overlooked due to being CD only releases at the time - anyone who was anyone in those days was still stuck on *records* during the world’s biggest boom of slick digital coasters - these feculent works of pure derelict attitude are a sorely needed reminder of just how fucking COOL the rock still rolled at the dawn of its death, and prove that SUBSONICS - if you’ve been paying attention - remain consistent in their execution.
A Subsonics mention in the same breath as the era’s most revered luminaries is crucial to the garage-rock conversation due to their unique take and attack on the teenbeat tongue, whether they consider themselves to be a component of the scene, or as outsiders making catchy and clever bang-shang-a-lang for their own inside kicks. Either way, our ATL heroes are playing the same stage, and they aren't particularly concerned if you missed the set… that’s our job. Here they are in 2023, exhumed at their most frantic, and they’ve never been more exalted.
