OOP Corner: The Deadly Snakes - Porcella [12" Version]

Posted: Tuesday, September 28, 2010 by Fashion Munx in Labels: ,

Toronto's Deadly Snakes evolved from a fairly standard garage rock/punk band to a diverse well rounded unit, demonstrating a love of tradition folk, country, 60's pop and soul music in their lo-fi tunes. They called it a day in 2006 after the release of Porcella -or- A Bird in the Hand Is Worthless, an album who's medium very much plays into how much one will enjoy it. You see the band released a standard 13 track album on the CD/iTunes release but the vinyl was a whopping 20 track double LP. The vinyl is a much different and arguably much better beast but for some reason it is out of print. So I've gone ahead and ripped my copy of the 12", I warn you now this is an inherently lo-fi production and my ripping is not without it's flaws and skips but I cleaned it up as best I could and it is still amazing to hear like this. Re-recording 4 LP sides until it came out just perfect was not an option. So here it is in all it's glory, do yourself a favour though if you find a copy at your local record shop or on ebay for a good price scoop it up and hear one of the best album of the last decade as it was meant to be heard!
