Next month we'll be reissuing the debut LP from Melbourne's TYRANNAMEN! Originally released on Cool Death Records in Australia at the start of the year, this has been one of my favourite LP's of 2016 and I'm stoked that we'll be able to help keep it in print.
I'm pretty bad at writing descriptions, so I handed the task over to my friend Sean, and this is his take on the record:
"After five years of playing gigs Melbourne's Tyrannamen (who also feature members of Twerps and Whipper in their ranks) finally released their debut album on Cool Death Records but that pressing sold out instantly so Static Shock decided to do the honourable thing and keep this instant classic in print. The album is just 23 minutes long but every minute is worth the admission price alone. The album starts with calling card 'I Can't Read Your Mind' which is full of ramshackle yet instantly catchy punk rock but with a soulful and rock 'n' roll underbelly. It sits somewhere between Alex Chilton, Royal Headache and Irish power pop kings The Moondogs. Your jaw will drop and your feet start moving. Other highlights include the anthemic 'You Should Leave Him' which starts like The Undertones 'Get Over You' before heading into a straight up pounder with Nic Imfeld's raw but tuneful voice taking the song to pop heaven. This album tugs at your heart, twists at every turn and deserves to be loved for years and years to come."
Clash magazine debuted 'I Can't Read Your Mind' earlier today, and you can check that out right here or listen below:
