After being out of print for years, early 2007 brings the re-release of AT touring machine AKIMBO with their debut release Harshing Your Mellow. Released in 2001 on start-up label Amalagate Records, this is the original album that got AKIMBO moving like a pissed-off snowball. All original 10 songs are here, plus an additional scorching cover of Vertigo by LA punk legends SCREAMERS, which was recorded in the same session under the mastery of Wes Weresch (C AVERAGE, ENEMYMINE, VALIS). This vicious, frantic, menacing album captures the band’s intense early years before they embraced the more heavy and paced sound that characterized their blistering 2006 Alternative Tentacles debut Forging Steel And Laying Stone. Fans of ’80s style driving punk rock like BLACK FLAG, NOMEANSNO, DEAD KENNEDYS) take note, this is the modern album that should have been released on Alternative Tentacles back in the early years. Featuring the original AKIMBO line-up of Jon Weisnewski, Nat Damm and Jared Burke Eglington, the album will be reissued with all new artwork in digipack format.
