Coming off the success of their widely enjoyed 2012 record No, there's really no better time for Old Man Gloom to make their back catalogue sound even better for their new fans!
I'm a big fan of reissues; it's a great way to make older material sound fresh (if it's done right), and give the fans extra jams along the already known stuff. It's especially awesome for the new fans of any given band, because they can start off their experience with as much as they want. Just want to listen to the record the way it was written? Go for it. In the mood for some bonus tracks? Well here they are! The remixes were handled by James Plotkin, who has handled remixing material by bands like KK Null, Nadja, Sunn O))), Isis, Pelican and Earth before, so you know it's going to be good. Old Man Gloom vocalist and guitarist Aaron Turner has this to say about the remixes-
For anybody new to the work of Old Man Gloom (or those simply looking to update their collections), the ultimate versions herein described and pictured can be obtained directly from Daymare by visiting the Inoxia webstore here. Big thanks to Tadashi Hamada for making this project possible. Though available only in the CD format currently, OMG is hoping to reissue these updated versions of the albums on vinyl in the course of the coming year. Stayed tuned for more info on that endeavor.
Speaking of Daymare, they have also recently issued the CD version of the JK Flesh/Prurient split album. The compact disc edition features the original content plus remix tracks by House of Low Culture and JK Flesh not available on the LP version. That item is also for sale direct from Daymare here. As of today there are also 3 remaining copies of the LP test press + cassette version of this release at the HHR store here.
