1 - NILS, THE - THE NILS (180 GR) - (LP) 
LABEL OBSCURA


The Nils' story has been described as a "Greek rock'n'rolltragedy." Forging a following in the mid '80s with theirmelancholy punk-driven power-pop sound, the Montreal groupbecame casualties of a record label deal gone bad, beforespiralling into black holes of drug addiction and death. Despite languishing in legal limbo and quickly going out of print, The Nils' 1987 debut album has become a Canadian cult classic, influencing members of Green Day,Hüsker Dü, Sloan, and Superchunk.Now, to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary, Label Obscura is proud to reissue a deluxe remastered LP, available on vinyl for the first time in decades, on October 20th. This edition of The Nils' classic debut features new artwork from Yorodeo (the visual art collective of Dog Day's Seth Smith), a gatefold jacket with archival photos, and liner notes by Jack Rabid, editor of New York's influential music zine The Big Takeover. A series of live performances from the reformed Nils will follow throughout October. Limited to 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl.
