The Mark, Don & Mel E.P.+ 4 LP (2018-RERUN #034)
Born In A Barn LP (2018-RERUN #035)
Rerun Records is proud to present new issues of the first two records by Columbus, OH's Great Plains. Smartass garage pop, firmly rooted in a beer-soaked Midwestern basement. Catchy tunes with too smart for their own good lyrics from the off-kilter mind of Ron House.
The first release is a reissue of their 1983 debut, The Mark, Don & Mel E.P. 12". We've added four bonus live tracks to make it a full LP, all performed by the same line up as the EP. The second is a reissue of their first full length Born In A Barn, originally released on the legendary Homestead Records in 1984. Both have been out of print for 30+ years.
Both LPs are a limited pressing of 500 copies and have remastered audio and printed inner sleeves with discography, testimonials, reviews of the original releases, photos, etc. These vinyl-only releases also includes a free digital download code with bonus live tracks.
Skank Or Die 7"EP (2018-RERUN #033)
Four high school friends from a small town in NJ, just across the river from NYC discover punk. Instead of playing lunkheaded polka beat hardcore, they mix at least 50% satire on the hardcore punk movement of the era with some truly great D.I.Y. Punk/HC. Nine blasts of spastic speed punk/hardcore clocking in at just under 11 minutes, pressed at the always kinda lo-fi 33.3rpm speed. The EP was originally released by the band in 1984. It got frequent airplay on WFMU and positive 'zine reviews, but it had little distribution and with the band not playing live any longer, it was soon lost to record collector obscurity.
Rerun presents an authorized reissue in a limited edition of 350 copies. Newly remastered audio and housed in a heavyweight sleeve featuring liner notes and song commentary by drummer and songwriter Kazumi Umeda, also including a replica of the original lyric insert.
