SIDEONEDUMMY RECORDS TO RELEASE SUPERDRAG’S SEMINAL ALBUM REGRETFULLY YOURS ON VINYL DECEMBER 11, 2012
October 11, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – SideOneDummy Records is pleased to announce the vinyl re-issue of Superdrag’s 1996 debut Regretfully Yours on December 11, 2012, marking the first time the album has been made available on vinyl. Superdrag’s first for Elektra Records, Regretfully Yours, included the hit single “Sucked Out”, which peaked at #17 on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. The larynx-shredding chorus (along with a Buzz Bin video) helped plant the band’s flag on a national level. “Some of the dudes went and watched Iggy Pop play a secret show at Coney Island High that night,” recalls guitarist and vocalist John Davis, “but I stayed behind and coughed up blood until we got that vocal right.”
On Regretfully Yours, Superdrag combine noisy guitar rock with Power Pop tunefulness, arriving at a place somewhere between Hüsker Dü and Teenage Fanclub. Although Regretfully Yours never attained the sales figures of some of the band’s 90′s peers, the album has long been lauded by critics and fans alike as a lost classic. “The whole thing was done really quickly, especially by today’s standards,” Davis remembers.”The bulk of the album was made in 7 days.” The band played more than 250 shows in support of the record, touring alongside the likes of Nada Surf, Weezer and Green Day.
In 1996, Jon Wiederhorn of Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone wrote, “Regretfully Yours is an emotional excursion fueled with sugary vocals, dynamic arrangements, and psychedelic guitar flourishes. Refreshing and irresistible.” 16 years later, those words still ring true.
SideOneDummy Records is initially pressing 1,000 copies of Regretfully Yours. The LP will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl. A pre-order of the LP is available from the SideOneDummy web store here.
