VERY STOKED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE’RE NOW TAKING ORDERS FOR THIS!
SFH - Mayor On Crack 45 (UP049)
Toronto “mayor” Rob Ford is an ignorant, corrupt, lying, bigoted, drunk-driving clown of a drug addict, so it’s clearly incumbent upon us to issue a punk rock record attacking him personally.
Luckily, SFH had already written the necessary response to this unfortunate episode in our city’s history, so we at Ugly Pop Vinyl are putting it on the 7” vinyl disc it deserves. In fact, this was recorded in June 2013, but we made no plan to release it because, as each new outrage piled onto that of the preceding day, it seemed clear that any elected official with the slightest shred of dignity or respect for his office would resign before a record could make it to the shelves. When Ford’s consistently breath-taking lack of shame eventually forced us to accept that this was not going to happen, the appropriate communications were made, and this timely rant is now headed for your turntable, where it belongs.
SFH frontman Kinsella is known to aficionados of Canadian punk for his part in 1980’s HOT NASTIES EP (one of the greatest Canadian records of all time, already reissued on Ugly Pop and now in its fourth pressing), and to most of the country as a persistent thorn in the side of the national Right. His present band continue to churn out the sort of tuneful, topical but angry punk that the tasteless goons of Ford Nation would find decidedly unappealing.
Titled “Mayor On Crack” and backed with an especially sweet b-side surprise, this will be a limited pressed of 500 copies, 100 on China White vinyl and 400 on Conrad Black, with a small handful on Transparency Clear. Pressing now to ship in a month!
