More Info:

'First released on by James Iha and D'arcy Wretsky's Smashing Pumpkins offshoot label Scratchie Records in 1996, the Chainsaw Kittens' self-titled album was never officially released on vinyl. For the album, the Oklahoma four-piece enlisted the help of The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd along with the help of a number of violinists and orchestra members, successfully making the album their most commercially successful. The Chainsaw Kittens toured with the album for over three years, selling out stadiums and theaters with bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, who often cite the Kittens as an early influence, along with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Of the album, AllMusic says "the overall feeling of the album is more melancholy and thoughtful than any previous one, capturing the sense of sadness and desperation...". For this first ever official release of the album on vinyl, a wealth of archival material has been drudged up, including never before seen live photos and art which will be included in an inner booklet. The album cover will be a full-color gatefold with newly created artwork by award winning Flaming Lips designer George Salisbury. Vinyl will be pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit, MI with 1000 LPs pressed on red vinyl and 1000 LPs pressed on black vinyl. 100 randomly inserted copies will contain an original press photo, newly autographed by the band.
