Memphis Is Dead
LP 
Price: $19.79

Product Notes

The Lost Sounds first record repressed on 180 gram and smoky clear vinyl! Born out of the wreckage of the REATARDS and the rubble of the short-lived CLEARS, Memphis's LOST SOUNDS began in March 1999 in an orange 70's kitchen with an oversized space-aged 50's refrigerator. They were a 3-piece made up of Rich Crook on drums, Jay Reatard on synth, guitar and vocals, and Alicja Trout also on synth, guitar and vocals. With a stockpile of analog keyboard at hand (previously collected for use in the new-wavy Sid barret-esque CLEARS) the three created a sound from a ship-wreckage of influences. The forged something from Killed by Death/Bloodstains compilations, Norwegian black metal (like Emperor, Ashes, and Darkthrone), and the then self-combusting Memphis 90's garage rock sound (Oblivians, 68 Comeback). Rich, Jay and Alicja added an "I don't care if it's what's cool, I'm gonna try it anyways" attitude to make a pile of songs that were strange and curious for a group from Memphis, Tennessee.
