“Very few bands make even one great album. Silkworm made several, and this is the first.” – Steve Albini
Comedy Minus One announces a long-overdue deluxe reissue of Silkworm’s out-of-print 1994 album “Libertine” (cmo019), the third and final full-length record by the band as a quartet.
This is a double 12″ pressing with a supplementary CD including “The Marco Collins Sessions” as well as two additional recordings from the band’s time at Pachyderm Studio.
Includes all-new artwork throughout (the revised cover is pictured at the top of this post) plus a full color insert with liner notes by Silkworm’s Tim Midyett.
Mastered from the original 1/2″ tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service.
Photographs by Mike Hoffman, Jr.
Layout and design by David Babbitt.
Pressed on 150 gram 45 rpm vinyl at Gotta Groove Records.
Preorders are available NOW and will be available until June 11.
In addition to the 2×12″ + CD + t-shirt you will receive a “bootleg” .zip containing nearly two hours of previously unheard high quality live renditions of “Libertine”-era songs from the quartet, a frame-able print of an image (seen below) from the same Mike Hoffman, Jr. photo session that yielded the new album art and a bonus white label 12″ of tracks 12-17 listed above.
There will also be a sticker.
