UPDATE (7/25/14): This record is now SOLD OUT via Insound. The Buy Now link below has been updated to send you guys over to Amazon’s pre-order page. On Amazon it mentions the color to be Pink/Black Color-in-Color. Along with the Buy Now link, I’ll be updating this article to reflect this color as I believe both Insound and Amazon will be receiving this variant. Stay tuned for further updates.
NOTE (1): This particular vinyl version of¬†Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? has been¬†remastered and features slightly altered¬†artwork. Also, the D-Side tracks are exclusive to the vinyl format.
NOTE (2): This article will be updated to reflect new information, as it becomes available,¬†such as color(s), new pre-order locations, etc.
This one takes me back to the first experience I ever had “digging” for music.¬†In the early 2000’s all I wanted to do when I wasn’t finishing homework, was skate. Skateboarding was my life back then¬†and the music I found¬†through skate¬†videos, mostly VHS at the time, was definitely impacting. Not only did the music further impact the power of the video part itself… but vice versa as the two intertwined in such a way that they became synonymous for me; they mutually empowered each other.
Now, although The Unicorns in particular were not actually a find for me through these videos, it was the discovery of Modest Mouse and the subsequent question: “What else is on their label that might be like this?” that steered me in a new direction of discovery with music that I’d never experienced prior. In answering that question, I discovered Suicide Squeeze Records. With that, I discovered The Unicorns as well as such bands as 764-Hero, Minus The Bear, and Red Stars Theory… to name a few.
Suicide Squeeze had released The Unicorns final EP before they chose to call it quits as a band. I listened, grew interested, and before long, was listening to¬†Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?.
Now, when it comes to the vinyl information for this record, it’s actually been pressed¬†a few times — all via Canadian label Alien8 Recordings.¬†There have been multiple pressings on ‘Pink’ vinyl as well as a single pressing on Black and also on Brown.
The coming vinyl repress found here will be via the band’s imprint Caterpillar Records. It’s unknown, as of now, if this will see an availability direct from the label or if these will all be going out to distributors. At this point, the album is available for pre-order via Insound (in the Buy Now link below) as well as Amazon.

WWCOHWWG? was the third and final fulllength album by the Canadian indie rock act The Unicorns, and was originally released in 2003. The album gained wide and immediate praise, with broad critical and commercial acclaim from outlets as diverse at NME, Pitchfork and The Village Voice. This cult affection is probably best summarized in the album's involvement as the premise for the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother? i.e., the basis for the lead character falling in love with said ''mother'' being their mutual love of the obscure Who Will Cut Our Hair...?.
