|Craw 1993-1997 Limited Deluxe 6LP Vinyl Box Set
Northern Spy reissues the first three records by Cleveland, Ohio, post-hardcore band Craw in a limited-edition 3xCD, 6 panel digipak set, 1993-1997 or as a limited edition vinyl box set . All out of print for two decades or more, these full-lengths - 1993's self-titled debut, 1994's Lost Nation Road and 1997's Map, Monitor, Surge - complete a story that concluded on Bodies for Strontium 90, released in 2002 by Hydra Head Records.
Thanks to the passion of writer and musician Hank Shteamer, who served as project organizer for the set and funded it through Kickstarter, Craw's music finally receives the reissue it deserves.
The new vinyl box set lovingly reintroduces these records in a deluxe package including three remastered double LPs and an exhaustive 200-page book. The book, designed by the team behind one-of-a-kind visually driven label Aqualamb - who have also overseen visuals for the entire release - includes a wealth of unpublished photos and ephemera, an exhaustive oral history of Craw drawn from newly conducted interviews, and a detailed timeline of band activities, shows and releases, stretching from Craw's 1988 formation to their 2002 break-up.
