Spare Snare - Sounds
Spare Snare, from Dundee, Scotland, celebrate 25 years of releasing records by asking Albini if he would be up for co-hosting a Scottish Engineers' Workshop with the band, and recording Spare Snare for the rest of that week. A resounding 'YES' was returned and funding was secured from Creative Scotland to host the workshop and record the album. The band chose to record 10 classic Snare tracks from the catalogue that have evolved with playing live, or would suit Albini's sound. These Albini recordings have become one of the highlights for the band, sitting nicely next to their 4 John Peel sessions. Gideon Coe at BBC 6 Music and Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland have been supporting the release and playing exclusives from the album. You can see their new film for the track 'Grow' on www.wearethesnare.com. You can find us on Facebook and Twitter @Spare_Snare The album will only be available on 180 grm vinyl, with a download code and has been specifically mastered and cut with the word 'audiophile' in mind. Recorded on 2 inch tape, and mixed on to half inch tape by Albini, the album was then mastered and cut by mastering legend Pete Norman. It has been pressed at the mighty Optimal plant in Germany. The vinyl shall come, polylined, in a brown reverse card spined sleeve, with a one colour print.
Available on indies-only clear vinyl
