Catalog no.: NUMLP2023000

Item ID: 397109

The 2nd installment in Numero's exhaustive 4-part Unwound reissue undertaking. This chapter intros the Olympia, Washington, noise-punk trio anew, kicking off with hi-hat thwaks on 'Dragnalus' from drummer Sara Lund, whose lockstep partnership with Justin Trosper and Vern Rumsey marked the forging of a 1990s indie-rock legend. The band's advancing threat is captured in 32 tracks, a trove of house-show b&w period photographs, and a vivid 10,000-word narrative by latter-day Unwound diarist David Wilcox. 'Rat Conspiracy', its name a one-time working title for Unwound's 1993 debut -the earliest Kill Rock Stars LP- brings the roiling, watershed 'Fake Train' into natural integration with its sibling record, 1994's 'New Plastic Ideas', on which the band "branch[ed] out into propulsive odd meters...and traumatic contrasts between loud and soft, pulling the arty riffage into much tighter focus." [Trouser Press]. Both get exacting remasters and replica sleeve treatment, while the set's third LP tracks Unwound's restless work toward synthesis with the 'Mkultra' and 'Negated' 7" material, previously unissued radio sessions, indie comp rarities, and the spidery Minutemen cover 'Plight.'
