The Distillers "s/t" LP (Purple / Pink Swirl Vinyl)
To call The Distillers simply a punk band doesn't do justice to either the band or the word "punk". Guitarist, lyricist, and vocalist Brody Dalle uses her medium as a platform for a higher plane of visceral lyricism and independence. Few modern day punk icons have not only embodied the genre so truthfully but also transformed the depth of what it can mean so thoroughly.
Recorded in 2000, their self-titled album is a throwback to the raw, in-your-face aggression reminiscent of late 1970s/early 1980s punk. Fast and forceful cuts like "L.A. Girl," "Oh, Serena," and "Girlfixer" are still exhilarating and inspired. In celebration of the 20th Anniversary, the album has been remastered and made available on color vinyl for the first time!
