Well, here it is....the final, absolute last ever Squirrel Records release!
We're going out as we started off - with the band Pop Threat. We've taken the Scum album, which was originally released on Mook Records in 2003, after the band had split up, and completely remixed/remastered it. All 12 tracks, now sounding quite different from how they were originally presented. It's a fine album - and you can definitely hear embryonic elements of later bands The Manhattan Love Suicides and The Blanche Hudson Weekend here...although, Pop Threat were actually a quite different sounding beast, mostly taking their influences from early Sonic Youth and the more stripped back tracks of The Cure, as well as the usual suspects - Jesus And Mary Chain, Velvet Underground - and combining it all with the rough n' tumble production of such bands as Swell Maps and Television Personalities.
The first 100 copies only will include a roughly recorded live CD of 2 Pop Threat performances....the most notable of which is their shambolic, barely held together gig at The Moles Club in Bath (and they split up straight after that one).
