The Coathangers "s/t (Deluxe Edition)" LP (Splatter Vinyl)
Reissue of the long out of print debut album by the Coathangers. Remastered with two bonus tracks. Expanded artwork by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound).
Fourteen years ago, four young Atlanta women picked up instruments without any prior musical experience or lofty aspirations and decided that they were going to start a band so that they could play a friend’s party. The house-show begat more shows around town, and the feisty and fiery live sets begat an album. Recorded during a single graveyard shift at a local studio and mixed the following night, the self-titled debut album by The Coathangers was a raw, rowdy, and revelrous affair. What it lacked in polish it made up for in its undeniable energy and charisma.
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 care-free beginnings. Suicide Squeeze Records is proud to offer up the deluxe remastered version of The Coathangers. This latest version of the album includes the bonus tracks Wife Eyes from the Hard Candy EP and the title track from the Never Wanted You EP.
