UNWOUND

RAT CONSPIRACY

THE NUMERO GROUP



3lp

Released: 12th Mar 2014

out of stock


the band’s advancing threat is captured in 32 tracks, a trove of house-show b&w period photographs & a vivid 10,000-word narrative by latter-day unwound diarist david wilcox.

this chapter intros the olympia, washington, noise-punk trio anew, kicking off with hi-hat thwaks on ‘dragnalus’ from drummer sara lund, whose lockstep partnership with justin trosper & vern rumsey marked the forging of a 1990s indie-rock legend. 'rat conspiracy', its name a one-time working title for unwound’s 1993 debut—the earliest 'kill rock stars' lp—brings the roiling, watershed fake train into natural integration with its sibling record, 1994’s 'new plastic ideas'. both get exacting remasters & replica sleeve treatment, while the set’s third lp tracks unwound’s restless work toward synthesis with the mkultra & negated 7’ material, previously unissued radio sessions, indie comp rarities, & the spidery minutemen cover ‘plight’.
