|Suburban Lawns Self Titled Limited Frosted Clear With Pink/Orange Splattered Vinyl LP
FUTNO12C is pressed on a brand-new colour titled “Flavor Crystal”, which translates as frosted clear vinyl with a splatter of pink and orange.
The sold-out reissue of SUBURBAN LAWNS is back due to popular demand! Never before reissued and out of print since 1980, FUTURISMO proudly present another very limited pressing of this eccentric slice of Californian new wave art punk originally released on the integral I.R.S. Records.
SUBURBAN LAWNS were the embodiment of everything that new wave was supposed to be: subversive, artistic, humorous and aligned to the timeless sensibilities of pop.
Their S/T LP is something of a lost masterpiece with it’s tales of computer dating, religion vs. superficiality and alien spotting excursions, a cocktail of unique subject matter filtered through equally unique musical characteristics. Featuring the off kilter classic ‘Janitor’ - where the enigmatic anti pin-up Su Tissue relay’s those famous words ”i’m a janitor, oh my genitals” - the album is guaranteed to either reignite memories of those late night viewings of New Wave Theatre, or leave newcomers to the band astounded that it took this long to catch up.
This much deserved re-release is delivered in fine redux fashion, on both 180g vinyl LP in exciting limited-edition colour with free download, as well as a never before released CD version. Both include new artwork and unseen photos, huge foldout poster, all the tracks present on the original S/T LP plus five bonus tracks as featured on their fabulous Baby EP.
This year, you will thank ‘mom and dad and god’ for the SUBURBAN LAWNS, so grab this cult gem before it sells out again!
