The best record label in St Louis is proud to unleash two new fine pieces of the puzzle that is the early St Louis Punk/Wave scene... (ordering info at www.RerunRecordsSTL.com)
1.The Retros-"Inner City Rockers-The Retros 1979" LP/CD
12 studio tracks recorded at Webster College in 1979 & never released until now. Fiery but melodic Punk tunes in the vein of the Buzzcocks, Generation X and the Boys. LP will include a CD with all the studio tracks plus bonus live tracks. The CD will also be available by itself in a very limited run...
2.Dear John-Frustrated Conversation 7" 30th Anniversary Re-release!
Criminally unknown Power-Pop gem recorded in 1981, this record existed only in the memories of a few St Louisans & the grubby mitts of a few Power Pop collectors the world over. Head John Bob Kuhlmann recently unearthed a batch of singles that had been in storage for thirty years & BDR has whipped up new covers with never-before seen photos & new liner notes. Limited to the 350 copies on hand....and the first 100 will even come with a download code to get more songs from their only recording session. Wow!
....and we're having a release party/show as well....bring the whole family!!
