||Looking for Incredible Casuals
|The Incredible Casuals are sort of proud to announce the unlikely re-appearance of the Inedible Casseroleseries, out of print for more than 25 years, and now available online only at ChandlerTravis.com.
Inedible Casseroles were originally a subscription series of cassettes,
issued every other month from April, 1983, to February, 1984, mostly
featuring the band's original line-up of Rikki Bates (aka Vince
Valium), Steve Shook, Johnny Spampinato, and Chandler Travis. (A seventh casserole came out much later, around 1990, with then-new Casual Aaron Spade.)
|Rip Your Mother
CD (Iddy Biddy, 2010,
19 tracks, limited edition, $14.00)
Order "Rip Your Mother"
The Casuals' first new release in six years features 6 unreleased
originals, 8 new covers (including Andy Partridge's "Sonic Boom",
Lonnie Mack's "Wham", and the dbs' "Neverland"), a handful of old
faves, an oddity or two, and some words of wisdom from the bassist, all
recorded live at the Wellfleet Beachcomber between 2005 and 2009, plus
a bonus track from the original line-up, recorded way back in 1983.
Loud, sloppy, almost entirely reason-free, and we're only printing 200,
so get 'em while you can!
|World Championship Songs (1980 -
(Iddy Biddy, August 2007, 24 tracks, $14.00)
"World Championship Songs"

favorites, plus a few things (singles, EP cuts, RadioBall excerpts, and
stuff heretofore only available in Japan) that you can't get anywhere
else nowadays, plus liner notes by John Swenson.
15 tracks, $14.00)
"The best rock 'n' roll band you've probably never heard is back with
its first national release in 10 years -one that blows the lid right
off the jewel case." (-Kevin Convey, Boston Herald.) It's also the
closest they've ever come to doing a full-on studio album, and it
sounds strong, articulate, and punchy. "It's a
masterpiece!" (-Francis DiMenno, the Noise.)
like it sez, 15
songs (9 never before
released), all recorded gorgeously at the Wellfleet Beachcomber in the
2004 (well, two were recorded there in past years) -it's the next best
thing to being there!
(Caraway, 2005, 16 tracks, $16.00)
1991 release provided "a stark reminder of
rock's basic power
and simple pleasures." (-David Hiltbrand, People) "The Casuals make a
raucous, guitar-driven sound not unlike
NRBQ but with a hint of Replacements-style corrosion."
(-David Fricke, Rolling Stone) Now re-mastered, with two extra cuts.
(Caraway, 2005, 15 tracks, $16.00)
released in 1987, the Casuals' debut album still
stands as one of their finest moments, and the new version is entirely
re-mixed and features two extra-ordinary outtakes. "Catchy
riffs, twisted lyrics, and enough sloppy enthusiasm to restore
one's faith in power pop." (-Rob Tannenbaum,
|The Future Will Be
"The Future Will Be Bettter Tomorrow"
A whole bunch of marvelousness from
Incredible Casuals, comprised
of outtakes from previous albums, plus a
handful of things that have appeared previously on compilations.
|It Is Balloon
Fidelity, 1995, 14 tracks, $14.00)
"It Is Balloon"
follow-up to "Your Sounds" will change your hairdo forever with
scorchers from their live set like "Same Thing" and "Burn Me
Up"! "One of the truly great obscure rock bands in America, the
Incredible Casuals somehow
manage to temper garage-band bluntness with an accomplished artfulness.
They're brown-bag virtuosos." (-David Hiltbrand,
perennial joy to have around!" (-James Lien, CMJ)
