Toe Rag Sessions, September 1994 by Country Teasers

Country Teasers

Toe Rag Sessions, September 1994
Crypt

***14 cuts from their first recording studio sessions of Sept 2-4 1994. Originally the band recorded 23 songs but in October 1994 BEN fired the drummer and decided to re-mix everything. Dec 1994: Ben erases the drum track and re-drums it himself. Ben decides to jettison most of the songs and suggests 10 cuts for the debut so we decide on a 10” (See: Crypt-060 10”—COUNTRY TEASERS Pastoral / s/t, also reissued.) And here they are at last: the 13 tracks cut at Toe Rag that didn’t make it onto the Pastoral 10”, PLUS the original version of “Black Cloud Wandering." In a sumptuous gatefold containing ancient pre-interWeb communication forms (letters, faxes, etc). It would have made a damned great debut album in 1994. It IS a damned great album in 2019 (and forever!).

Satan Is Real Again by Country Teasers

Country Teasers

Satan Is Real Again
Crypt

***A rather deluxe reissue of this classic (as considered now) second LP by Edinburgh/London combo COUNTRY TEASERS, featuring tons of info on just how this LP came to be, plus the rather fucked-up story of a wee label flailing against the corrupt/inept accounting by Atlantic Records. Gatefold sleeve plus printed inner sleeve. And, most importantly: a READABLE sized BAND NAME upon a sticker attached to the shrink-wrap!   Yes, my friends; A new 14-cut album from London´s finest, no doubt to cost Crypt more "garage/punk cred" within the ranks of those "hip". Well, believe me, I just spent 24 hours going thru a stack of over 200 demos from half-assed newly "hep" "garage" and "punk" bands and the Teasers cut a bold swath through alla these nouveau Caesars or D Dogs attempters, never mind alla these pissant surf/lo-fi/"trash" punkers with absolutely no fucking SUBSTANCE or originality. I will admit that the Teasers AIN´T yer "typical" Crypt "sound"; Hell, they almost fit in and could even appeal to "garage" hating "indie rock" types. SOME NOTES ON THE TUNES YE SHALL BE TREATED TO: Anyway, the alb kicks off with a noisey instrumental "intro", "THE WIDE-OPEN BEAVER OF NASHVILLE". Next up: the ALMOST "radio-friendly" "BLACK CHANGE" kicks in. Track 3 is an ode to the subtleties & innocent pleasures of "PANTY SHOTS". "IT IS MY DUTY": a charming, skipping treatise on the overly facistic feminism of now. Rather than apologize for any whining from the PC do-gooders, the next tune, a poignant...

The Empire Strikes Back by Country Teasers

Country Teasers

The Empire Strikes Back
In The Red

***AVAILABLE AGAIN ON VINYL!!!  “In the industry, I am the only complete man...” sang Country Teaser’s B.R. Wallers, quoting Naked Lunch, back in 1995. If modesty didn’t forbid, he might’ve been speaking of his own band. Is there another current group operating at such a high level musically or lyrically? Evolving out of a prolific home recording project in the late ’80s influenced by The Cure and Butthole Surfers, The ’Teasers debuted as a beguiling mixture of deconstructed country and dissonant post-punk. “Boycott the Studio” was their manifesto: “You will not find music where it is shown, only where it is hidden...”  The Empire Strikes Back, the group’s eighth full-length, was recorded in Oregon — 90,000 kilometers from the band’s home in London — when In the Red made good on a promise to find the band a live-in studio with an amenable engineer (Rich Wells of Portland’s Supreme Reality Studios). Far from a sanitized “studio recording,” the album is as damaged and unpredictable as any Teasers album (only with better microphones). The band’s humor remains as strangely contradictory as ever, with Wallers juggling a cast of personae as far-flung as P.G. Wodehouse, Ice Cube, Winston Churchill, and Bill Hicks.  Is The Empire Strikes Back a concept album about race, England, and Star Wars, or did the band just find something unwholesomely amusing about the juxtaposition of fascism and Industrial Light and Magic? Via fax, all five members answer “Definitely.”

*** London, England’s Country Teasers’ long overdue live album documents the sheer splendor of what is the Country Teasers live experience. Recorded in various locations across the UK and the USA, the imaginatively titled Country Teasers Live Album captures the band at its rawest, most powerful, most spontaneous and most drunken. Painstakingly assembled from the vast archives of Country Teasers live recordings by frontman Ben Wallers, Country Teasers Live Album collects some of the finest gems from the combo’s various live broadcasts, board tapes, handheld audience bootleg recordings, and a couple of surprises. Off the cuff cover versions from the likes of the Butthole Surfers, Randy Newman, New Order and The Brainbombs can all be found here as well as curse words, false starts, song fragments, abrupt edits and audible tape hiss.   • Long overdue live album by London’s premier trashmakers • Covers of songs by Butthole Surfers, Randy Newman, New Order, Brainbombs

Secret Weapon Revealed At Last (aka Full Moon Empty Sports Bag) by Country Teasers

Country Teasers

Secret Weapon Revealed At Last (aka Full Moon Empty Sports Bag)
In The Red

***Secret Weapon Revealed At Last aka Full Moon Empty Sports Bag is the The Country Teasers’ first proper full length album in four years (not counting Science Hat Artistic Cube Moral Nosebleed Empire, a collection of odds and sods released by In The Red last year). On Secret Weapon Revealed At Last we find the band at their rawest and most uncompromising — an unlikely marriage of post-punk, industrial clatter, country, and roots music that is damaged to such a degree that Johnny Cash don’t know but Gibby Haynes understands. Oh, we should also mention that the Country Teasers records are designed to offend those with PC values … mainly due to the fact that those with PC values certainly deserve to be offended deeply. Demented and always unpredictable, the Country Teasers are a true original and one of the last bands that matters.

Science Hat Artist Cube Moral Nosebleed Empire by Country Teasers

Country Teasers

Science Hat Artist Cube Moral Nosebleed Empire
In The Red

***The COUNTRY TEASERS are best known for their stunning output on the Crypt and Fat Possum labels. How a band of Scots and Londoners crazily influenced by the likes of The Fall, Joy Division, Devo, Bauhaus, hip hop and country & western music wound up recording for labels best known for American rootsy-down-home-style output is anyone's guess. But here they are again with their most expansive and eclectic endeavor to date.  Science Hat Artistic Cube Moral Nosebleed Empire collects obscure singles, demos, outtakes and home recordings spanning the band's seven-year existence. 'Teasers front man Ben Wallers painstakingly pored through nearly twenty hours of material to find the best forty selections for the vinyl, and twenty for the CD, the concept being that each set of ten tracks represents a complete album. All together: "huh?" Wallers insists the double-vinyl set is actually four albums—pressed in an edition of one-thousand in a beautiful color gatefold jacket, by the way—and the compact disc, with twenty tracks extracted from that collection, is actually two albums.  Science Hat Artistic Cube Moral Nosebleed Empire offers the broadest range of the Country Teasers' styles, from the most savagely raw post-punk stomps to experimental electronic blow-outs. This collection is absolute proof that the Country Teasers are one of the most original bands around today.  * Popular group with previous releases on Crypt and Fat Possum  * Brilliant (and until now) underappreciated band
