SHIPS WEEK OF OCT 21
Sizzling exercises from deep in the Hiss sub-basement. For twisted ears only.
A slight return to the red-hot, fried and twisted garage/psych/punk blasts we’ve come to expect from MIKE POLIZZE’s PURLING HISS. He’s way off the leash on this one, up Hiss creek with nobody to paddle home. Recorded in various Philadelphia-area basements and men’s rooms over the course of 2007-11, the sessions were stunted and aborted as each successive borrowed practice amp blew smoke and crapped out under the strain of Polizze’s fiery fret work. Originally a cassette-only release, but just about every tape was quickly scattered and smashed along the Schuykill Expressway after being left on the roof of the tour van. Edition of 500 copies.
available on green vinyl while supplies last.

Impossible to Say b/w Sitting on Her Whiskers
Back in the rough n’ tumble days (& nights) of the 1990′s, you’d be hard pressed to find a single slobbering indie-rock drunkard who wasn’t a Fieldhands fan. From the tremendous early Siltbreeze singles to the magnificent Omphalos full-lengths, the galaxy and beyond were charmed by their wayward off-kilter pre/post-skiffle, pre/post-psychedelic, and pre/post-punk avant pop. Bob Malloy crafted swaying bizarre stories & fables in a fake British accent as convincing as a perfectly fitting Toupée. But aside from 2002′s unsung and virtually unheard Third Kingdom, all has been seemingly quiet in Fieldhands land. But aha! They’ve only been slumbering, laying in wait writing and recording.
Which brings us here. Two brand new songs. One is a lively and scrappy, yet wistful anthem, perfect for hoisting a pint with the lads. The other is a tender Ray Davies-ian ballad about a bearded lady. Hey, you’re the one who asked! We are pleased to present them in an edition of 350 copies, an unknown quantity in the hand-painted Hesske edition available only from the band or from Richie Records // TestosterTunes.
