Please note: the grooves are close together and start at the very edge of the record, so it is hard to get the needle on! Forgive any fumbling! :)
Unpacking and first play of "THE WORLD'S SHORTEST ALBUM" RECORD STORE DAY VINYL
EARACHE RECORDS will be marking this year's Record Store Day with a number of special limited edition releases. Among the rarities being unveiled on April 20th will be "The World's Shortest Album" - available on vinyl for the first time and clocking in at just 83 seconds.
Crammed into less than two minutes is an assortment of the best grindcore acts from the past two decades: NAPALM DEATH, WORMROT, A.C., INSECT WARFARE, BRUTAL TRUTH and more. The album will be on a 5" vinyl, presented in a 12" sleeve. You can view the artwork here: http://earacherecords.com/myspace/wor...
INSECT WARFARE founder Beau Beasley commented on the power of short songs:
"The first time I heard 'You Suffer' was an experience like this: it was like the sound of two pieces of large, rusted metal colliding. Quick, scathing, and confusing. A car crash. Not literally, but might as well have been.
"I like the primal aspect of these songs. Anything that really needs to be said can really be expressed very simply. Think of the power of the word 'NO'. When you hear it yelled you immediately know its intent. Imagine that power with the sound of a blast beat behind it."
The tracklisting for "The World's Shortest Album" is as follows (with timings in seconds):
01. Napalm Death - You Suffer (1.9s)
02. Napalm Death - Dead (2.7s)
03. Napalm Death - Your Achievement (4.2s)
04. Wormrot - False Grind Sodomy (2.5s)
05. Wormrot - You Suffer But Why Is It My Problem (4.0s)
06. Brutal Truth - Collateral Damage (4.0s)

04. Morbid Angel - Bil Ur-Sag #2 Lava (6.9s)
05. A.C. - Windchimes Are Gay (9.5s)

BRUTAL TRUTH's featured track, "Collateral Damage", is already in the Guiness Book of Records as the "World's Shortest Video", whilst NAPALM DEATH's "You Suffer" also attained status as the "World's Shortest Song".
