L'oeuf D'or

Release Notes
  • Remastered from the original tapes, and reissued in close participation with The Fire Dept, Billy Childish, Bruce Brand, and Damaged Goods Records.
  • First ever vinyl reissue, and limited to 500 copies worldwide. Limited one-time pressing.
  • Third of seven titles in the limited F.W.O.A.H. (Friends of Worshipfull Order of Ancient Headcoats) reissue series, bringing highly sought after titles of Thee Headcoats, Kyra, The Fire Dept, Jack Ketch & the Crowmen, and Billy Childish back into print.

A true underrated and ready to be re-discovered gem; Fire Dept (out of Cambridge) burn it down on both sides of this (their debut) album, lost in time and packed with ace songwriting, molten guitar playing, and covers of bands that are still unknown to squares in this so-called sophisticated age which we now find ourselves. Recorded at Toerag, produced by Billy Childish (who also did the sleeve art), and issued on his Hangman’s Daughter label in 1995. Makes every other group that tried this sort of sound seem meek and lazy.
