2 - GIANT SAND - BLACK OUT - (LP) 
FIRE FIDELITY


LP + free MP3 download. Fire Fidelity re-issues the rare and regarded Black Out recording from 1993. Forged from the embers of the recording session which was Purge & Slouch, and wholly acoustic, this collection of takes was originally released only in Germany. Black Out sits proudly amidst the Giant Sand re-issue project. "When we gathered for the grand experiment of Purge & Slouch, Howe Gelb recalls, "the idea of which was to record without having written anything prior for it. Some actual songs did pop out, perhaps for the sake of warm-up or while mics were being wired...maybe just for the sake of vigorous deployment. Re-living some old songs there and then, we bundled em up after the fact for what would become Stromausfall instead. This was a limited batch release on a small German label that took my original title Black Out and translated it. The idea being that this is the sound that would happen during one... songs without electricity attached". Since then, most of that original pressing made in Germany has mysteriously self destructed so it is with pleasure we have the opportunity to release the album again.

2LP + free MP3 download. Realised through tragic circumstances, the passing of Rainer Ptacek and the birth of Calexico, it all came together at the end for Giant Sand.

5 - GIANT SAND - COVER MAGAZINE - (LP) 
FIRE FIDELITY


LP + Free digital download of the album. 2002's Cover Magazine is a much less cryptic, typically literal title for one of Giant Sand's lighter alternative offerings. A collection of covers which says as much about Howe Gelb's personal musical taste as it does the friends he has made on his musical journey. Being in the fortunate position of looking back on Giant Sand's output with the 25th Anniversary reissue series, we are able to see the influences which have shaped the existence of the band at each turn and chapter. Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and of course Rainer Ptacek have all made an impression and the tables are turned as Giant Sand give thanks with renditions of Young's "Out On The Weekend", Cash's "I'm Leaving Now" and Rainer's touching "The Inner Flame". More contemporary takes on PJ Harvey and Goldfrapp show Giant Sand are forever keen and willing to listen. With Giant Sand's clattering percussion and Howe's meandering vocals, nothing should be assumed before listening. Each track is taken from a new (alternative, strange, weird, interesting, unexpected, intriguing) angle, so surprises are aplenty. A Black Sabbath lounge ballad anyone???

TRACKLISTING: 01. El Paso / Out On The Weekend 02. Johnny Hit And Run Pauline 03. Iron Man 04. Human / Lovely Head 05. The Beat Goes On 06. Plants And Rags 07. Wayfaring Stranger / Fly Me To The Moon 08. Red Right Hand 09. King Of The Road 10. I'm Leaving Now

6 - GIANT SAND - GLUM - (LP) 
FIRE FIDELITY


LP + free MP3 download. 1994's Glum was to be Giant Sand's largest record and in order to make it so, Howe Gelb invited everyone along to the party. This carnival help create Giant Sand's best record to date and Glum is now proudly re-issued by Fire Fidelity. Howe Gelb explains Glum's story, "This was our best record for a long time. It had Malcolm Burn producing it with me and it was done up at Daniel Lanois' studio in New Orleans. Since it was our _first big budget session, I tried to get everyone who ever took part on a Giant Sand record to come to Dan's mansion and stay and be on the record somewhere. This made the atmosphere in the house more entangled then it had to be, but seemed like the way it should be. For some reason I began singing like an old man on this record, or maybe was inspired too much from my new talking distortion pedal on my guitar."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Glum 02. Yer Ropes 03. Happenstance 04. Frontage Road 05. Painted Bird 06. Helvakowboy Song 07. Spun 08. Left 09. Faithful 10. Bird Song 11. I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

7 - GIANT SAND - IS ALL OVER THE MAP - (LP) 
FIRE FIDELITY


LP + Free digital download of the album. In 2004 Giant Sand had changed beyond recognition. The revolving door of band members that so invaluably contributed to a prolific and gifted past was now, literally, all over the map, and so were Giant Sand. Bassist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino had now moved to pastures new with Calexico, in their place were a new Scandinavian backline which would enable Howe and Giant Sand to release the first original material since 2000's Chore of Enchantment. The reaction produced a record which at points harked back to the more rowdy and aggressive tones of Giant Sand of old, seemingly in search for the familiarity of earlier times, stretching in to new surroundings, distortion being the tool. The songs of course are great, Gelb's often whispered and crackly in-ear vocals, pretty piano, acoustic guitar (and with peppering of that distortion) all play their part to continue the Giant Sand train moving, ...um, all over the map.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Classico 02. Nyc Of Time 03. Remote 04. Flying Around The Sun With Remarkable Speed 05. Cracklin Water 06. Rag 07. Muss 08. Drab 09. Fool 10. Les Forcats Innocents 11. Napoli 12. Hood (view From A Heidelberg Hotel) 13. A Classico Reprise 14. Anarchistic Bolshevistic Cowboy Bundle 15. Ploy

9 - GIANT SAND - THE LOVE SONGS - (LP) 
FIRE FIDELITY


For the past 25 years the Tucson-based Giant Sand (originally Giant Sandworms as a nod to the "Dune" books) has been one of the most consistently innovative in the American music scene. A recipe that could perhaps be best described as 1 cup well-executed grunge aesthetic, 1 cup downtown NY, 1 cup troubadour, and a dash of country outlaw. Although its membership has shifted greatly over the years, singer / songwriter (as well as guitarist and pianist) Howe Gelb has remained at the helm to help fill the coffers of what could be called the new American folk song. Often called Giant Sands best album of their early period, 1988s "Love Songs" features an expressiveness and songwriting maturity that rivals Bob Dylan.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Wearing The Robes Of Bible Black 02. One Man's Woman / No Man's Land 03. Mad Dog A Man 04. Fingernail Moon, Barracuda And Me 05. Mountain Of Love 06. Almost The Politician's Wife 07. The Doors 08. Love Like A Train 09. Is That All There Is? 10. Clump 11. Get Ready 12. Murky Red Dew 13. Major Glorious Ending Theme
