This is probably the best news we’ve gotten all day [and we got some pretty good news earlier, so that’s saying a lot] For Us Records is reissuing the debut 7″ from the legendary Kleenex. Not only that, but they’re offering special limited colored vinyl and hand colored sleeves for those who pre-order. You probably want to jump on that. The single originally came out in 1978 on Sunrise Records in Switzerland and was shortly thereafter picked up by Rough Trade [RT-009] Alongside the Slits and the Raincoats, these girls were probably one of the most seminal bands in the feminist art-school punk scene. Check out a track from the record below and go ahead and place your order here. Not only are they reissuing that, but they’ve reissued the classic Dolly Mixture singles collection. Dolly Mixture were like rock and roll garage girls with class. In the vein of the Shangri-Las, but a little harder to grasp. The limited pre-order is up for those, so you’ll have to be satisfied with just the record. Which is fucking awesome. Order it here.
