SOLGER: Codex 1980: CD

Jul 29, 2009

The only document you’re likely to hear of Seattle’s first true hardcore band, who existed for a mere six months in 1980, played six shows, recorded an ultra-rare, ultra-lo-fi 7-inch masterpiece, summarily threw in the towel, and guitarist Paul went on to join the Fartz. Thanks to record collector interest in the aforementioned 7-inch, Empty has released this retrospective. Collected here are remixes of the tracks from the EP, six live cuts, and original mixes – straight from the vinyl – in all their miserable sounding glory to appease purists. A must-have for any northwest music historians, not to mention those who like their music loud, raw and totally fucked up.
