The Traditional Fools
In The Red is proud to announce the re-release of the self-titled album by Ty Segall's Traditional Fools. The Traditional Fools were a garage-punk-thrash-surf trio consisting of Ty, Andrew Luttrell and David Fox. They recorded and released their lone album back in 2008 - it sold out quickly and has never been re-pressed until now. Recorded live in the studio, Traditional Fools is low on fidelity and high in energy. The band's sound is a perfect combination of 60s garage, vintage surf reverb and early LA punk performed with trashy reckless abandon. Covers by Redd Kross and Thee Headcoats give you an idea where these guys were coming from and songs about bikini babes and shredsticks tell you where these guys were at. Grab a bike, a tank top, sunglasses and every beer you can find and enjoy surf-punk done right.

Reverse Shark Attack
Originally released in 2009 as a vinyl-only title on the Kill Shaman label, Reverse Shark Attack is a collaboration by two long time chums who grew up together in Laguna Beach. Both turned out to be hyper prolific singer/song-writer/musicians who recorded as solo artists as well as performing in bands such as the Sic Alps, Moonhearts, Epsilons and Okie Dokie. The result of this collaboration is an incredible shambolic 10-track delight of psychedelic garage jams that is sure to please the most scrutinizing rocker. Equal parts danceable garage rock and effects-ridden psychedelia, Reverse Shark Attack is a mind-blowing explosion of loud guitars, pounding rhythms and signature vocal harmonies. Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin balance perfectly between soprano and baritone vocals, making for outstanding results. The centerpiece of the album is the title track, a side-long epic that goes from Beatles-esque melody to psych/ folk weirdness then explodes into a Ventures-induced headache of smashed drums and wildly vibrant surf guitars. This is a must-have release for fans of these two artists, and nothing like either of their projects have done before.
