By 1991, after a few short years and a devastating setback (their 1989 debut 12" on the soon to shutter Circuit Records wouldnít be released until 2020) Unsane had quickly became a mainstay in New York noise and heavy music scenes. Their growing intensity, combined with a strong DIY touring approach, influenced this greatly iconic album. Guitarist / vocalist Chris Spencer: "It seemed important to capture that aspect in recording. I was using a cassette recorder to record the live shows and actually put between song live noise on the album." "We got offered a show playing CBGBís with Sonic Youth, although we were playing the graveyard slot which meant that we were to play after them. Sonic Youth played a crazy, super-long set and then we were to play. Almost everyone had left as it was 2:30 in the morning, but of the 10 or 12 people that were there, Gerard from Matador Records had stayed. He saw us play and offered us a deal that night." Decades after the initial release of the self-titled, itís impossible to deny or underestimate the musical evolution of the 90ís without including Unsane. Combining the abrasive noise-rock with corrosive and powerful distorted vocals, furious pulsations of bass and drums, Unsane had broken down the doors of noise-rock of the 90's. The first ever vinyl reissue of Unsane's 1991 self-titled album.
