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."
