THE SCISSOR GIRLS LP by The Scissor Girls
LP - black vinyl record, heavy cardstock with full colour tip-on artwork, spot varnish detail on front and back, full colour printed record sleeve, hand stamped centres, comes with sticker, edition of 500, 2021
A vinyl pressing of their handmade, self-released demo tape from 1992. From 1991 – 1996, the Scissor Girls reigned as the most jarring, intense, and unpredictable band, the centerpiece of the “Chicago no wave” scene. Their recorded legacy (two LPs, a 10”, and a handful of 7”s) is all highlights, but nothing else sounds quite as friendless and focused as these very first recordings. Seven pin-sharp, searing, precise songs.
