Rare Scud Mountain Boys' Albums Due Soon

Great early work from the Scud Mountain Boys.

The first two Scud Mountain Boys records, the ultra rare 1995 Pine Box

LP as well as that same year's Dance the Night Away CD will both be

re-released by Sub Pop on April 22.

Both of the post-punk country-rock

band's albums originally appeared on the small Massachusetts indie label Chunk

Records and have been remastered for this specially-priced collection. The

double-CD, entitled The Early Year will collect such live Scud staples

as their aching cover of Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves," the elegiac

"Peter Graves' Anatomy" (which appears on both), "Silo," "Reservoir" and one of

the rockingest songs in their repertoire, "(She Took His) Picture."
