Modern Action is a new label that record collectors will want to watch. Complex packaging and pressing info is listed on their site for all of their releases, with the new Sharp Objects being no exception. They’re working on their first album right now, but have put out a few short releases so far, all of which kick ass. Kind of a punchier, even more vital version of The Briefs, Sharp Objects capture the best of ‘77 punk while not coming off as too corny or fabricated. It’s probably too late to get some versions of this release, so get your collector nerd glasses on and figure out what options you have left.
