LIMITED EDITION 300 ONLY NEON PINK VINYL LP HOUSED IN A PVC SLEEVE SEALED WITH STICKER. COMES WITH DOWNLOAD CODE

Long overdue vinyl release of Shit And Shine's second album 'Jealous Of Shit And Shine' originally released by Riot Season on CD only back in 2006.

Back when Shit And Shine were just a mere two piece with a wicked sense of humour and a lawnmower, 'Jealous Of Shit And Shine' came out and knocked folks bandy. The original CD didn't last long and was never repressed, and for the last 9 years CC (Craig Clouse) has been badgering Riot Season to give it a vinyl release. So here it is, in (almost) all of it's original fucked up glory. The audio has been tweaked a little to make it more vinyl friendly by the man himself in his Texas bunker, but it's still a completely messed up brain fuck of an album. The kind only two men and a lawnmower can make.

Split into two parts, side A is the live favourite 'Practicing To Be A Doctor', almost 24 minutes of pounding tribal drums and a ridiculously addictive bass line that just rolls on and on ... if you never saw them do this live with anything up to 30 drummers you missed out big time. Maybe they'll bust it out again one day. Side B features the more wacky/noise/avant-garde side of Shit And Shine. Chaotic distorted blasts, mesmeric chuntering, tortured guitars and drums disguised as seven tracks. Absolutely fucking delightful, and absolutely like nobody else out there. 100% Shit And Shine and it's no wonder folks are jealous.

The NME included 'Jealous Of Shit And Shine' at #88 in their '100 LOST ALBUMS YOU NEED TO KNOW' feature saying “I love ‘Jealous Of Shit And Shine’ the same way I love everything they do; the utter wretchedness coupled with humour; the surprising depth of what could seem initially like a one-dimensional sound; the cast iron but utterly uncontrived 'absolutely-don't-give-a-fuck-about-what-you-think-ness' that it exudes. Although it sounds really abrasive, some song titles and the artwork spell out their playful streak pretty clearly"

Summed up well.
