|Laddio Bolocko Live & Unreleased 1997-2000 Limited Vinyl 3LP + DVD Deluxe Box Set
· “Laddio Bolocko were f***ing awesome” - Pitchfork
· “Seeing them live was akin to walking in on the Aurora Borealis captured within the walls of a dive bar - beautiful, captivating and wonderfully overwhelming” - CMJ Music Monthly
· “The sound of what post-rock should’ve become.” - San Francisco Weekly
· Laddio Bolocko existed in a different New York. Formed in 1996, shortly after relocating from St. Louis to Brooklyn, the members immersed themselves in their music, living together in a dingy, windowless basement constantly rehearsing and recording. Those recordings - which combined the aggression of punk, the rhythm and texture of Kraut rock and the ambience of early 80s experimental noise (This Heat, Throbbing Gristle) - sound as fresh and relevant today.
· The band’s two official albums were collected on the 2002 release ‘The Life And Times Of Laddio Bolocko’ but everything on this collection is previously unheard. Culled from a suitcase full of tapes and edited by guitarist Drew St. Ivany it showcases the intense, productive lifespan of this short-lived band.
· Members of Laddio Bolocko went on to form The Psychic Paramount and The Mars Volta.
· Additionally, a DVD is included which features over two hours of live performances.
· Comes with liner notes by Kid Millions.
· The 3LP set is housed in a heavy deluxe box.
