URU     2       CORDS : STARGAZER (BEST OF 1990-1999)                   LP      07.2019

Cords was a Dutch alt.rock/grunge/noiserock-band that operated from 1990 till 1999.
It all started with John Peel playing their first 7", after which he invited the band
for 2 infamous Peel Sessions. A page-wide article in the Melody Maker triggered NYC
-based TVT Records to sign them instantly. The band lived in New York for 2 months
whilst recording the album 'Taurus, No Bull', produced by Nick Sansano. The second
full-length 'Hear! See! Feel! Taste!' was taped in 3 different studios, as the band
was traveling the globe constantly, Zippah in Boston, Sony Studio's in NYC and
Metropool, Hengelo. After that followed their third at Zippah and finally the album
'Lunchbox' with Steve Albini in Chicago. You might have come across this super-high
energy-group at places like Roskilde, Sziget, Lowlands, Dynamo Open Air, or on tour
with bands like The Gun Club. This compilation contains the band's favorite picks and
all tracks have been restored and remastered by Trushkadelic to be released on vinyl
for the first time. Limited edition of 250 hand-numbered copies, designed by Iggy
Pieters, and includes an insert.
