11:11 Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition
- CD £15.00
Way back in 1993, when things like newsstands and magazines still existed, Entertainment Weekly’s David Browne called ‘Eleven : Eleven’, the first album from Boston’s Come, “enthralling, like watching someone howl into a rainstorm.” The album in question was the result of a collision between Boston/New York guitarist/vocalist Thalia Zedek (formerly of Dangerous Birds, Uzi and Live Skull), Oberlin product / guitar wizard Chris Brokaw, and one of the more powerful rhythm sections of the last half century, drummer Arthur Johnson and bassist Sean O’Brien. Despite being one of the best albums in this label’s long history and one of the more memorable debut albums in an era full of ‘em, ‘Eleven : Eleven’ has been out of print for far too long. In May 2013, however, that situation was rectified with a deluxe, remastered double disc reissue (2XLP, 2XCD) comprising the original album plus a bonus disc featuring Come’s October 10, 1992 performance at the Vermonstress Festival. The 2XLP edition will also include a bonus 7″, a reissue of the “Fast Piss Blues” b/w “I Got The Blues” single.
