The Coathangers Reissue Debut LP

Suicide Squeeze have announced plans to re-release The Coathangers’ raw and rowdy long out-of-print 2007 self-titled debut album. This latest, remastered version of the album will be released on December 4 and includes the bonus tracks, ‘Wife Eyes’ from the 2010 ‘Hard Candy EP’ and the title track from 2007’s ‘Never Wanted You EP’. ‘The Coathangers’ will be available on vinyl featuring expanded artwork with an initial pressing of 1000 copies (500 on Confetti Crush Splatter Vinyl, 500 on Neon Strawberry Banana Pinwheel Vinyl). The album will also be available on digital formats.

 

Along with the announcement, they have shared the remastered version of ‘Wife Eyes’. "We have always encouraged each-other to explore other instruments. For us, switching instruments was a way to explore our creativity and expand our sonic landscape” comments Julia Kugel. “I think some of our most creative songs came out of the practice of switching instruments and 'Wife Eyes' is one of our earliest recorded songs where we switched instruments: Candice plays drums and Steph the keys. The title is an obvious play on words-inspired by a joke on 30 Rock that lent itself well to speaking on the roles of technology and patriarchy in our culture. It’s amazing to see that we are still dealing with these issues today."

The eponymous debut album by The Coathangers is a whirlwind ride of a band at the most frenzied, celebratory, and free moment of their existence. As a standalone record, it’s a brash and bawdy rocker sure to please anyone who likes their rock n’ roll sweaty and messy. As a piece in the band’s legacy, it’s an exhilarating reminder of the band’s youthful carefree beginnings.

Pixie Dot And Dash Halloween Special

Continuing my shameless self-promotion on Musos’ Guide, the band I formed with my teenage daughter has a new release out on Friday. Pixie and I have recorded a light heart number about flatulence while we drafted in Reverend JM of Lugosi to spin a nightmarish tale of an anxiety dream filled with existential dread. Yes, this is the true meaning of Halloween. We may not get to celebrate it this year but at least we can provide a soundtrack.

‘Handy Aday’ was recorded with Darren Flynn (Mongrel State). ‘Handy Aday’ is one of Pixie’s common catchphrases. It’s a warning that she has just farted. But you don’t need to worry about nasty odours because this track doesn’t stink. Our synthesizer, Dot, was put to work on ululating sounds like Daft Punk directing a SETI programme. Why choose between creating something original and making a pop song when you can do both simultaneously?

‘Random Chains’ was written and recorded with Reverend JM Burr of Lugosi and Reverend JM’s Panic Worship. It’s the perfect Halloween tune with raw. Gritty instruments, relentless beats, and a fever dream vignette of paranoia, anxiety, and horror from Dublin’s resident master of scary tales.

Be brave and bold and delve into the darkened depths of Pixie Dot & Dash’s Halloween Special. Download the double A-side from Bandcamp from Friday October 23, 2020.
