Originally released in 1994 on the lunamoth label through EMI the 2nd album by Guelph, ON agit-dub provocateurs King Cobb Steelie is re-packaged, re-mastered and re-issued by Pheromone Recordings.
And not a moment too soon as recordings this stellar, this monumentally great, should never be out of print. Released at the peak of the early/mid 90’s wave of left-leaning independent Can-rock, Project Twinkle stood out for its mindwarp melding of 80s hardcore with jazz/dub/ambient/electronic motifs.
Some key facts:
• 10 songs and 60 minutes of music produced and mixed by legendary sonic alchemist Bill Laswell, with a huge fat bottom end.
• Re-mastering by Joao Carvalho using the finest contemporary gear has taken the album to a new sonic level of excellence.
• Juno – nominated artwork by bassist Kevin Lynn has been converted to digipak from the original jewel case.
• A dub-wise Mad Professor remix of “Italian Ufology Today” is added as a bonus track.
