RIYL: The Replacements, The Germs
Label: Fat Possum Records
That’s right. X has been out of the limelight for 35 years, and now they return with Alphabetland. I’ll make it brief because this is flying off the shelves, and the yellow version, numbered to 200 is sold out. Grab this while you can! The white is available, limited to 400 as well as the indie exclusive.
While everyone is social distancing, closing ranks and donning masks while they shop, life can seem somewhat surreal to the senses. Yet, through all of the chaos, one thing is constant, music brings us together.
Now, on the 40th Anniversary of the landmark, Los Angeles, and 35 years since the original band have released an album â€“ X, one of the greatest Punk Rock bands in music history, releases ALPHABETLAND today via Bandcamp.
The original foursome – Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake have now made the album available for fans to purchase and by adapting to this moment, X continues to embody the same spirit they did when they began in 1977.
â€śWhen your heart is broken you think every song is about that. These songs were written in the last 18 months & it blows my mind how timely they are,â€ť explained John Doe. â€śWe all want our family, friends & fans to hear our records as soon as it’s finished. This time we could do that. Thanks to Fat Possum & our audience.â€ť
