Release Notes
  • New LP Color Edition in Flavor Crystal (Frosted Clear with Pink and Orange Splatter)

Turn your lawn sprinklers to the maximum ‘cause your gonna need cooling down when you hear the SUBURBAN LAWNS are back on Vinyl…and this time CD! Never before reissued and out of print since 1980, FUTURISMO proudly present this eccentric slice of Californian new wave art punk originally released on the integral I.R.S. Records. SUBURBAN LAWNS were the embodiment of everything that new wave was supposed to be: subversive, artistic, humorous and aligned to the timeless sensibilities of pop. Their S/T LP is something of a lost masterpiece with it’s tales of computer dating, religion vs. superficiality and alien spotting excursions, a cocktail of unique subject matter filtered through equally unique musical characteristics. Featuring the off kilter classic ‘Janitor’ – where the enigmatic anti pin-up Su Tissue relay’s those famous words ”i’m a janitor, oh my genitals” – the album is guaranteed to either reignite memories of those late night viewings of New Wave Theatre, or leave newcomers to the band astounded that it took this long to catch up. This summer, you will thank ‘mom and dad and god’ for the SUBURBAN LAWNS!
