The Bangles Ladies And Gentlemen...The Bangles! LP (Translucent Yellow Vinyl)
The Origins Of The Fabulous Bangles On Vinyl LP!
Limited Pressing On Yellow Vinyl!
Includes Long Out-Of-Print Rare Debut Single & EP Plus Live & Demo Tracks!
Hand-selected by the band members from their personal music archives, Ladies
And Gentlemen . . . The Bangles! is a 16-track collection of remastered '80s-era
rarities, demos, live recordings and more, including The Bangles' debut single
and all of the tracks from their self-titled EP—produced by legendary
Ramones/Blondie producer Craig Leon—unavailable since its initial release on
vinyl in 1982.
Encompassing the very first years of the band's development, from their earliest
days as The Bangs to their incarnation as The Bangles, the tracks include
performances by The Bangles' founding and current members—Susanna Hoffs, Debbi
Peterson, and Vicki Peterson—as well as now-retired bassist Michael Steele, and
the band's original bass player Annette Zilinskas.
"We're so pleased to give our fans and music lovers alike the chance to enjoy
the early fruits of our labor. Some of these tracks have never seen the light of
day," states Bangles drummer/singer Debbi Peterson. "We've wanted to make
these songs available to a new audience for a long time," adds
singer/guitarist Vicki Peterson. "We've thrown in a couple of live tracks,
and even some of the first demos, all lovingly collected and re-mastered, so you
no longer have to dig out a cassette player to hear them." Singer/guitarist
Susanna Hoffs continues, "I feel a very special connection to our early
recordings. The garage of my parents' house was our musical laboratory, and we
took all the flavors of our favorite bands and mixed up a concoction of jangly
guitars, McCartney-inspired bass parts, grooves powered by punk energy, and
harmonies galore! These songs and recordings were our musical manifesto—all that
mattered and inspired us, fueled by youthful energy, hope and blind ambition."
Previously available as a download-only, Omnivore Recordings is proud to offer
