Notes

Black Vinyl, second pressing Second pressing is 500 copies 400 black vinyl (this) and 100 white vinyl Pressed from the same metal parts as the first pressing The only difference with the black vinyl is that the second pressing is shrink wrapped, where the first press was in a stickered poly sleeve Hearing this artifact of the original Midwest firstwave punk era is akin to finding a treasure buried amongst shards of glass in the sands of time Meticulously restored from the original, neverbeforemixed master tapes, The Haskels lost studio album, recorded on one cold October day in 1979 at Milwaukees soontoclose Solar Studios, should set the record straight on perhaps the most important lost gem of the era birthed from the Midwest, US, or otherwise worldwide Milwaukees Haskels were kings of the late 70s punk scene, centered at Zaks North Avenue nightclub, sharing the stage with bands like the Lubricants, Blackholes, Orbits, Plasticland and others that have found their way onto bootlegs and posthumous releases of their own Their sound was a combination melded from the rootsglamDetroitinspired, naive retro pop sound of godfatherscenester Presley Haskel and Richard LaVallieres surreal dreambased narrative genius compositions, fleshed out by Gerard LaVallieres precise guitar attack and Guy Hoffmans unorthodox but danceinducing beats The bands chops as well as their charisma carried the day, as they filled clubs and held court at the Haskel Hotel, their headquarters in the rundown Brady Street area of Milwaukees lower East side wwwsplungecommcomReviewsShepherd Express httpsshepherdexpresscommusiclocalmusicthehaskelslostalbumfinallyseethelightofdayOnMilwaukeecom httpsonmilwaukeecommusicarticleshaskelsalbumhtml
