Suburban Lawns - Baby 12"
Label: Rubellan Remasters
Release Date: March 29th, 2024
Limited to 500 copies.
After making a splash with their 1979 debut single "Gidget Goes To Hell", Suburban Lawns released their 1981 self-titled debut LP, which featured another cult single "Janitor". The final Suburban Lawns offering was the 1983 5-track EP titled Baby.
With the band now paired down to a four-piece, the three tracks on side 1 continued in the zany style the band had become known for. The best-known track "Flavor Crystals" remains a popular underground favorite today. Su Tissue provides a quirky vocal delivery over the catchy drum and bass backdrop.
"Enjoy" and "Hug You" are both upbeat and catchy, each sung by other members of the band with Tissue providing backing vocals.
Side 2 shows the band moving into a more artsy and experimental direction with the "Baby" title track receiving a music video.
Remastered from original master tapes, Baby is presented here on it's first ever standalone vinyl reissue on sour apple colored vinyl.
