CRUMBSUCKERS “Turn back time: the early years 1983-1985” double LP+CD and double CD out now!!

The wait is over! CRUMBSUCKERSTurn back time: the early years 1983-1985” 2xLP+CD and double CD  are finally out. We’re a bit late in announcing this (release date was set for July 9th) because we have been away for 1 week at the Obscene Extreme Festival busy with our records/merch tent. A part of preorders have been shipped already and the rest will be sent before the end of the week. There are only 15 copies left of the ultra-ltd diehard version on black n’ blue splatter vinyl so better blast at the speed of light on the shopping cart if you want to catch one!

So more in detail about the contents:

if you’re looking for crucial, full on energy 80’s New York Hardcore, then look no further!! This is the most exhaustive, high quality retrospective of the pre-”Life of dreams” recordings, 69 songs including all their Demos (the legendary “Crumbsucker cave” demo 1983, “Charge of the light brigade” Demo 1985 and two unreleased tapes 1983-1984) + a bonus CD with 3 great sounding live sets 1984-85 at CBGB‘s… one opening for the Cro-Mags!  This collection shows the band’s natural evolution from basic, no frills early ’80s Hardcore to the mad thrashing assault that made “Life of dreams” and “B.O.M.B.” two unforgettable lessons of true NYHC crossovered with technical and well delivered Metal.

All the stuff included here features their former singer David Brady, and displays embryonic versions of all those anthems that were later re-recorded on their debut masterpiece + a bunch of unreleased tracks!  As usual all the stuff here has been mastered from 1st generation tapes with extreme care and passion by the Hand of Doom @ Toxic Basement Studio, a real guarantee of quality and passion!

VINYL: Three sided double LP (one side silk-screened featuring the original Taggart’s crumb sucker art) housed in a thick gatefold jacket including rare photos, flyers and liner notes + exclusive artwork by Lucas Kalina… bonus Live at CBGB CD sealed inside of the gatefold in a 5″ cardboard sleeve!

CD:  double CD in a 6-panel digipack including a 16 page booklet (same contents as the vinyl version)

For those who are still not familiar with this mandatory band (shame!) make sure to read this great writeup about their classic debut album “Life of dreams“, it’s the best way to get introduced to their awesome power… quote: “this was like the best of Bad Brains and Exodus rolled into one”!!! And IT’S SO TRUE!
