The Glands album is already an immortal classic... I saw them when it came out and there were 7 people in the audience. Sad.

same. they followed one of Jay Reatard's early side projects and there just wasn't anyone there at all.

Got my copy of Double Coda. It is a great day to be a fan of The Glands.

OK, anybody else have Double Coda? It's the album of the year.

Oh man I'm so jealous. I don't have a turntable. What are the liner notes like?

the booklet is very nicely done; lots of good photos and remembrances of the band from fans both nearby and distant. there are detailed credits for double coda with recording dates and who played what; the liner notes for the first two lps seem to keep with how they were originally released.

I bought the CDs for Double Coda and reissue, they didn’t have much of anything. But the music is so spectacular. Double Coda is like a Glands version of Wowee Zowee, with tons of songs in all sorts of styles. It’s so much fun.
