LILLINGTONS, THE: The Backchannel Broadcast: CD

New reissue of this punk classic hits the street, plus a 2011 remaster by Mass Giorgini. Crisp and clear sound from top to bottom. There’s an obsession with the Russians here, as titles like “The Russians Are Coming” give the game away. “Dynomite” and “Blue Steal” are my favorites on this slab. If you don’t know Kody Templeman (no relation to Ted) history pre-Teenage Bottlerocket, this is a great place to start.
