Couple Tracks Singles 2002-2009 (Matador)
Stoner / Punk / Post Metal / Industrial Rock
‘Couple Tracks: 2002-2009’ contains 25 songs and is designed as a sequel to their earlier compilation, ‘Epics In Minutes’ (Deranged, 2004). The cover photographs for both are identical in set-up, taking in to account additions in personnel, and this new compilation comes with complete illustrated discography of the contents, with extensive liner notes about each song.
‘Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009’ spans an extraordinarily varied (and extraordinarily collectible) musical career that has mainly been documented on 7” vinyl singles released around the world on many labels in many countries. Chronologically, it ranges from the A-side of their first single, ‘No Pasarán’, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War released on Deranged in 2002, to the fast alternate take of ‘No Epiphany’, their latest 7″ on Matador from early 2009. Aside some their rarest moments, the compilation also contains five unreleased tracks; all having been lovingly remastered.
