About
 

Often cited as a major influence on the key bands of the grunge era (Nirvana, Melvins, Mudhoney etc.) Tales Of Terror's one and only LP is an overlooked classic of 80s NorCal punk rock. Available for the first time in more than 30 years, Kurt Cobain's 32nd-favourite-album-of-all-time is chaotic and charismatic in equal parts; the band's story is tinged with tragedy, but the music they played was life-affirming. Wild, heads down proto thrash metal meets punk excess; think early Guns n’ Roses meets Iggy at the bar from a band whose trajectory was cut short after the death of guitarist Lyon Wong in 1986. A cobweb dispersing buried treasure that stands alongside the debut of The Damned and draws a shaky line through grunge to At The Drive In and way beyond. A super rare release, unavailable for over 30 years; remastered and ready to be cranked up to full volume.
