|Constantines Shine a Light Limited Vinyl LP + 7 Inch & MP3
· The first pressing of the Constantines’ self-titled (and Juno Award-nominated) debut (released on Three Gut Records in 2001 and re-released outside of Canada on Sub Pop in 2004) was fittingly packaged so that, upon opening the red cardstock booklet, you’d find a single strike-anywhere match.
· This from Magnet magazine: “They’re young offenders with sharpened teeth who make grinding, literate punk with the elasti-to-explosive guitars heard on Fugazi’s ‘Smallpox Champion’, the stark lyrical economy of a Vonnegut-penned
newspaper obituary…” and “The Constantines are old souls in young bodies - guys in their early 20s who sound like Joe Strummer backed by Fugazi - making music that wakes the sleeping and the dead.”
· ‘Shine A Light’ was the Constantines’ second fulllength
and their first for Sub Pop.
· This 11th anniversary vinyl reissue includes a bonus 7” featuring tracks from the ‘Nighttime’ and ‘Young Lions’ CD singles.
· LP includes MP3 coupon.
