Pre-sale of the week is 24-7 Rock Star Shit by The Cribs, out on 11 August.
Recorded live to tape in just 5 days by venerated underground engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Shellac, Pixies), 24-7 Rock Star Shit marks a return to The Cribs’s early roots with its raw, rough-around-the-edges approach and sonic aggression.
First conceived during recording sessions for the band’s fifth album, In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull, these recordings were elevated to quasi-mythical status amongst the band’s famously dedicated fan-base, with excitement building for a ‘punk album’ flipside to 2015’s more pop-leaning For All My Sisters. Originally intended as an EP, once sessions were completed the band found that they had recorded enough material for an album and decided it should be released that way instead. “That approach just really suits us, we were just having too much fun I guess,” they laugh.
Note: the LP is on indies-only splatter vinyl.
