Industrial Coast

Regular price

An eclectic tribute to the wonderous Swell Maps, commissioned & released by Industrial Coast - 

"Of all the bands to have emerged in the wake of punk, Swell Maps were always the odd ones out. As excited by Gong and Faust as Buzzcocks and Desperate Bicycles, they were as likely to break into eight-minute experimental jams complete with vacuum cleaner, balloons and xylophone as they were to hurtle through ninety seconds of adrenalised rock & roll"...The Quietus

"The first Swell Maps single I bought ("Let's Build A Car") still to this day gives me a soul scorched buzz'n'rush. As soon as Nikki Sudden's guitar comes slicing slabbing and all out fuzzifying off that crackling vinyl groove you know yr gonna rock. The Swell Maps had a lot to do with my upbringing... I wish I saw them"...Thurston Moore
