GRAF ORLOCK "LOS ANGELES" 7" VIT025 Second Press w/Poster
This is the most mind-numbing incarnation of Gorlock, true to form, and a rigid adherence to the annoying doctrine of cinemagrind, this 7" rages through four tracks in 10 minutes (curiously the same running time as the 6 Doombox tracks). Complete with requisite "source information", these songs are faster, more complete, and believe it or not, more pissed. This EP ventures further into the "character study" of Los Angeles, focusing on themes as diverse as stilted relationships, getting robbed, and shooting the shit out of downtown for 11 unimpeded minutes, while simultaneously encapsulating the disgusting culture of the mid-90s.
This comes with an insert featuring lyrics and some great artwork courtesy Alan Hunter.
There are 600 copies of this bastard, broken down into three different covers. The covers will have actual me-shot bullets holes in them, so technically, each is a 1/1 because even though i have ridiculously accurate and tight firing patterns, no two are the same. For you wieners trolling discogs, they are all black vinyl.
Preorders go on March 10, let's say 9pm pacific. Tunes up soon. Karl has been heavily immersed in hip-hop lately, which i believe definitively informs his call-and-response vocal delivery. If you have a problem with this, you should consider the idea of having your friends in a band no matter how braindead they sound. This will be shipped in the coming weeks, proper release date is April 10, but it will be before that.Adieu The Poster is 14"x21" with all of your favorite characters from Heat. The image is also on the "Los Angeles" shirt
