ИO​/​/​/​sé - S/T LP - Orange Vinyl (/100)


Rotten To The Core/Challenge The Throne (2012)

While it's happened very few times, a big time perk of running this website is when someone gets in touch with me about a record I'm looking for that I can't find.  Have a gander at my wants list some time.  It's not completely up to date, but maybe you've got something on there that I'm looking for.

When I originally wrote about the first ИO​/​/​/​sé record I wasn't able to track down the colored vinyl version.  I did manage to find the much more difficult to obtain test pressing of it however.  I had mentioned that I don't collect test pressings and would happily trade it away for the normal colored vinyl version.

Enter my friend in records Norm (who incidentally has the ONE Rocket From The Crypt 7" that I still need, so you should post in the comments section below about how he should sell or trade that to me).  Norm got in touch, asked for a swap and had this record headed my way awfully quick.  A gentleman and a scholar.  Now, about that red vinyl 7"...

Anyway, this record is still every bit as great as it was the moment I first heard it.  ИO​/​/​/​sé manages to come off as a weird concoction of The Marked Men, Leatherface and Hot Snakes.  Those are some pretty top tier comparison points, but ИO​/​/​/​sé really does manage to incorporate elements of each to create some amazing music.   If you missed this album the first time around, I cannot recommend it highly enough.  They have a newer album that recently came out and it is also great, but their debut is in rarified territory.  It's just that good.
