May 15th Vancouver Show

Posted on Saturday, April 25th, 2009 by Gerry | 4 comments

Dearest Subhumans fans, please note the following venue change: Our May 15th show in Vancouver, Canada has been moved from the Anza Club to the Ukrainian Hall (near Hawkes and Pender in Strathcona).  All gigs being put on by Low Down Dirty Productions that were scheduled for the Anza Club are being likewise moved.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this venue change may cause.  

Actually, it’s a bit of a “return to the scene of the crime” for the Subhumans; we played a benefit concert titled “Rock Against Prisons” with the Zellots, Rabid, AKA and others at the Ukrainian Hall way back in 1979.  Yes, and another interesting bit of Subhumans trivia: Mike tells me that we had none other than the ledgendary Chuck Biscuits on drums for that gig, as Dimwit had just defected to the Pointed Sticks.  Perhaps Chuck will grace us by sitting in on a song at this gig as well.  One never knows….  Suzanne, could you make it happen?  Anyways, be there or be triangular!

Death Was Definitely, Too Kind

Posted on Wednesday, April 1st, 2009 by Gerry | Comments Off on Death Was Definitely, Too Kind

This news is way overdue, but we figured we should mention it anyways: our album, “Death Was Too Kind” is out and on sale now.  Actually, it has been for a few months, but we’ve all been too busy to update this site for a while.  Sorry about that.  If you can’t find it at your favourite record store you can always ask them to order it in for you, or you can order it yourself directly from Alternative Tentacles Records.  For a more in depth overview of the record, see Mike’s earlier posting titled, “Death Still Too Kind”.

Also, we’re doing a show May 15th at the Anza Club in Vancouver.  It should be a lot of fun.  We haven’t done a show for almost a year now, so hopefully peoples’ ears have stopped ringing from the last one and they’ll get their asses out to this extravaganza.  Maybe we’ll see you there.

Death Takes a Holiday

We held off announcing the release of our new CD for quite a long time for no really good reason, except maybe a general feeling that there’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip, and the best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley.  We waited until we had a definite release date, all the music and grpahics in the hands of the label, the manufacturing schedule all set, all that.  Everything was set in stone, or maybe welded up in high-grade steel, great, time to let le chat out of le sac.  September 28 for sure. 

Oops.  Seems Alternative Tentacles got caught out when their usual CD pressing outfit closed down.  They had to take their schedule apart and reassemble it, and the new release date for “Death Was Too Kind” is November 11.  For sure.  Really.  No kidding.  You can take that to the bank, which will probably be out of business by the time you get there.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Death Still Too Kind

Posted on Saturday, September 13th, 2008 by Mike | 11 comments

We are pleased to announce that, after only three years of people coming up to us at every gig and asking how come we didn’t have any of our old music available, that we will soon have a batch of our old music available. “Death Was Too Kind” will be released September 30, in both CD and LP formats, on Alternative Tentacles (VIRUS 391) world wide.

Included are our first single from 1978, our self-titled EP from 1979, our second single from 1979, and two bonus tracks that were retrieved from a 1981 demo session to round out the history of the original band’s first era and first lineups.

Here’s the track list:
1. Death to the Sickoids
2. Oh Canaduh
3. Death Was Too Kind
4. Fuck You
5. Inquisition Day
6. Slave to My Dick
7. Firing Squad
8. No Productivity
9. Look At The Dawn
10. Pissed Off … With Good Reason

All the tracks were lovingly retrieved from the best sources we had, and painstakingly remastered for your listening pleasure. The last two tracks were previously released on our 1996 CD collection “Pissed Off … With Good Reason” (which has long been unavailable), but these versions were remixed from the original multi-track tapes, and might almost qualify as “previously unreleased” if you’re generous. Which we assume you are.

We should also point out that unlike the various unauthorized bootleg releases that have surfaced over the years, the CD version is guaranteed not to contain any hidden viruses that might transmit your credit card numbers to a website in Belarus, and the vinyl version is guaranteed not to harbour any rogue transients that might cause your speaker cones to shoot out and embed themselves in the opposite wall. Just sayin’.
