Big Stick

Drag Racing (rsd19)

Drag Racing Underground



record store day 2019 - 4 track 7" EP

Released: 13th Apr 2019

£9.99


One of the 142 singles contained in John Peels famed 45 Record Box.

Amazing! Reissue of the very first Big Stick 7" to announce the launch of their own label Drag Racing underground, Big Stick are reissuing their first single, as the 4 track 7" it came out as in 1985, remastered and recut..with repro sleeve.. Big Stick slithered up from the NYC art rock underground in the mid-80’s, worlds apart both stylistically and sonically from the noise-damage darlings of the junkie punk scene they emerged from - Pussy Galore, White Zombie or their high profile big mean daddies in Sonic Youth, Swans, or Foetus. John Gill and Yanna Trance were a live-work-kill together couple who brewed up their crazed sonic schemes in their very own secret headquarters, explaining little and revealing even less. They performed wearing elaborate masks, and all known press photos were similarly mysterious affairs, shrouding their true identities in a veil of feathers and wigs and antlers
