Original Off Records release info:

In early 2002, indie rock legend Robert Pollard (the genius behind Guided By Voices) joined forces with Richard Meltzer (author of "A Whore Like All The Rest"; former music critic for Creem, Crawdaddy and the lyricist for Blue Oyster Cult) to create The Tropic of Nipples. This frightening meeting of minds, along with musical backing tracks from legendary 70's noise outfits Smegma and Antler created psychedelic, post-beat sonic freakouts and wonders. Due to the amazing response to the vinyl version of this release (THANK YOU ALL!!!) the pressing sold out before the release date and many are a weepin' still. Even more should still buy turntables….

Robert Pollard, Richard Meltzer and Off Records are pleased to announce a limited edition cd-reissue of THE COMPLETED SOUNDTRACK FOR THE TROPIC OF NIPPLES-NOW WITH OVER 23 MINUTES OF NEW AND UNRELEASED MUSIC!!

Included on this re-issue are exclusive tracks from Pollard (including a song written and recorded with Jim Shepard), the first cd appearance of Meltzer's earlier 70's punk incarnation Vom (featuring members of The Angry Samoans), a live recording from 1977 performed at Rhino Records and gee-ads more (new collage work from Pollard, a song written for and rejected by Blue Oyster Cult and so on). Indeed this stuff rocks quite hard (just ask Peter Buck-Vom's #1 fan-truly).

And the icing on the cake: All orders made through Off Records mailorder will be autographed by Richard Meltzer himself! The man/The beast!!!! We are taking pre-orders now for a June 4th release.
