RED LOUNGE RECORDS NUMBER 100!!!!
As you can see this is part of our AMERICAN DEUTSCH PUNK SERIES! After the SPITS, OVERNIGHT LOWS, STRANGE ATTRACTOR now it is time for this!! When we told you we would be releasing some of the BEST DEUTSCH PUNK RECORDS EVER we didn’t lie..or did we?? NR 100 will be a german version of the Nervous Patterns Masterpiece “You Can’t Change” entitled “Du Kannst Dich Niemal Aendern”. Little did we know when we approcached Alicja that she still had the original Mastertrack… we thought all masters where lost in the aweful computercrash Jay had… Good chance this might just be the last new Nervous Patterns release ever… I had been talking to Jay Reatard about an Red Lounge Release of some sorts when the unthinkable happened, and I was propably the only european but definetly the only german at his funeral… I say this with sincere pride that even death couln’t keep Jay from making a record on Red Lounge! I love this song and I couldn’t be happier with the german version Alicja presented me!!! Matt Melton was kind enough to provide us with the only existing alternate shot from the BLOOD VISIONS session, and we used it on our limited editions, only available thru Red Lounge directly.
The B Side is the River City Tanlines doing a Lost Sounds fave of ours… “Energydrink and the long walk home” now entitled “Energydrink Und Der Lange Weg Nachhause”. Same here… a total winner!!!
But why read my blahblah if you can take a listen?
Yes there is pro’s and cons to „special editions“ but hey, this is our time to pop some champagne and we felt like opening the magnum bottle!
