Supreme Dicks Reissue Complete Recordings on Jagjaguwar

Jagjaguwar is thrilled to announce the reissue of the complete Supreme Dicks catalog on October 18 (October 17 UK). Rising out of the Amherst, MA scene that produced Dinosaur Jr, Supreme Dicks were vital contributors to the lo-fi and avant garde genres. The band’s constantly revolving lineup (Lou Barlow was a Dick now and again) centered around Daniel Oxenberg, Jon Shere, Steve Shavel, Mark Hanson, and Jim Spring, whose psychedelic-yet-twangy brand of rock’n’roll came out of the band’s roots at Hampshire College in the Reagan era.

To celebrate the release there are two free MP3s available today! You can find “Jack-O-Lantern” at Altered Zones and “In a Sweet Song” at RCRD LBL.

The complete recordings will be reissued as a 4 CD box set called “Breathing and Not Breathing.” This will include both of the band’s studio albums, The Unexamined Life and The Emotional PlagueWorkingman’s Dick, a collection of early archival recordings; and the EPThis Is Not A Dick, which has been fleshed out with rare and unreleased tracks. Also available are 2xLP editions of The Unexamined Life and The Emotional Plague. Cover art & track listings after the jump.
