Climax Golden Twins - 5 Cents a Piece

Climax Golden Twins are back in action and perhaps better than ever here with this gorgeous limited edition 180 gram slab of wax. This is their debut release on the Abduction label and we’re wondering why it took so long? These grooves are sewn together like a patchwork quilt of audio curiosities from a boarded-up backroads museum—the kind that’s haunted by vaudevillian ghosts of days gone by. There’s the heavy electrified trio improv attack mode they’ve been utilizing at live shows lately to maximum effect along with some twisted front-porch twang and twilight melodic folk stitched together with odd field recordings and occasional sinister pathways not unlike their “Session Nine” soundtrack work. And where did that drummer come from? The finale “For the Exited” ascends and swirls into a deep coma of electro-cosmic rock. Turn it all the way up! If you always wanted to explore CGT only to find that most of their back catalogue is long out of print, this LP is a great way to start but you better hurry because it’s a one-time pressing limited to 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl with vintage pulchritudes printed on the labels so wedge yourself between two hooters, farm boy because there’s fifty ways the cleavage smothers!
