Finally available on an amazing double vinyl format (including copies on 180G virgin vinyl, and with a special bonus insert), the 1998 album The Medicine Is All Gone by Caustic Resin (Produced by Phil Ek).
Originally released by Alias Records on CD , (actually available from Morphius Records in CD format below), the album's official reissue on vinyl is due September 9 on Scavenger Cult Records. In case you weren't aware, that's Caustic Resin frontman Brett Netson's own imprint.
Prior to the official release, we have a very limited amount of copies available for direct purchase only. These are the superlimited 180GRAM version, with the photo insert.
Netson is an original member of Built to Spill, having played on their debut album and other releases About this release, Mark Lanegan says “I was obsessed with this record when it was first released and it still blows my mind – a forgotten classic of American underground rock.”
The album was remastered from the 1/2″ tape, and the artwork was painstakingly reconstructed (including a re-creation of the original metallic color used on the jacket)
In addition to fronting his own band Brett Netson & Snakes who released an album last year, Brett still works with Built To Spill (when he feels like it). Plus he's a member of Earth (touring with Boris this summer).
