MVD, who for years now have been putting out some excellent music related DVDs is getting in on the vinyl craze with four upcoming releases:
DEVO – Watch Us Work It
This will contain four versions of the song “Watch Us Work It”: Teddy Bears Version, Original Devo Demo Version, Karaoke Version, and “Still Workin'” Version. It was recorded at Mutato Muzika in Los Angeles and produced by Sweden’s famous Teddy Bears. The DELL company heard it when Paul Malmstrom and Linus Karlsson at the Mother agency in NYC pitched it as a possibility for a TV campaign for the newly developed, high-end laptop computer. DELL loved it, so they used it for nationwide TV ad campaign. The vinyl will also include “Devo Was Right About Everything” by Attery Squash (re-mix by Robert and Gerald Casale).
Info: Not available until 2009
GG ALLIN – Freaks, Faggots, Drunks and Junkies
Vinyl edition of what is probably GG Allin’s greatest studio album. This was GG’s fourth album when it was originally released on Homestead Records in 1988. Recorded with a backing band featuring members of New England punk/thrash heavies Psycho, this one contains some of GG’s best songs. “Die When You Die” is arguably the most famous GG Allin song and this album features the original, best version of the live warhorse. It also includes GG’s rewrite of David Allen Coe’s “Longhair Redneck” titled “Outlaw Scumfuc.” The punkest man alive (at the time) at his peak.
PLASMATICS – WENDY O WILLIAMS – Beyond the Valley of 1984
This is their second album and features some of the best songwriting of their career, as well as a lean and tight sound combing metal, punk and hard rock. A truly ground breaking release that sums up everything the band stood for and still sounds completely fresh over 25 years after its release.
DWARVES – Dwarves Limited 10 Inch
Way limited 10″ picture disc vinyl split, one side Dwarves, live KSZU FM Stanford, recorded in 2004. The other side is Dwarves singer Blag Dahlia covering AC/DC (Big Balls) and the Ramones (The KKK Took My Baby Away) as well as some originals. This record is limited to 1030 copies and these are the last of them. Full color picture disc of a delightful young woman in a Mexican wrestling mask and not much else.
Since nearly all of these bands have DVDs out on MVD, it makes sense that they were chosen to be the first of what hopefully will be a long line of quality vinyl releases.
