Since their first moment it seems like they’ve been as electric as their name suggests. ‘Lightning Bolt’, their first album, captures that energy in a raw form. Famously lo-fi, this is the album that’s been described as most feeling like being at one of their shows. It’s difficult to listen and not want to jump with the crowd it feels like must be huddled around the amp producing an incredible wave of noise, astonishingly coming from just two musicians. You can hear the threads of their later work; use of repetition, a sense of grinding and building, noise melting to guitar solos. This album is loud and the riffs repeated become mesmerizing as they warp slowly thru the songs.

‘Lightning Bolt’ has not been available on vinyl since its original pressing of 740 in 1999.

First time ever released as a double LP. LP1 is the original release, LP2 was recorded at the same time and has never been issued on vinyl.

Packaged in a two-sided silkscreen wrap using original designs by Brian Chippendale and printed by Crosshair.
