As we really hope you are already aware, we will be re-issuing Red Red Meat’s incredibly great 1995 album Bunny Gets Paid in a fancy, deluxed-up edition on March 24th. The original album has been re-mastered, there’s a 7-song 2nd disc of alternate, demo and single versions of album tracks, plus b-sides, covers and a previously unreleased song from the same era (“St. Anthony’s Jawbone”), all wrapped up in expanded and enhanced album art.
It’s pretty nice (and available for pre-order right now).
What you may not already be aware of, the thing that is providing me with an excuse to talk up the reissue here in a “news piece,” is that Red Red Meat is getting back together to play a handful of shows next month as well! They will be playing two shows at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, one on March 17th, the other on March 18th, AND they will be playing at the Sub Pop showcase at SxSW this year on March 19th! All of the confirmed Red Red Meat shows are, not at all coincidentally, up in our tour section right GD now.
If you’re able, you should really avail yourself of one of these rare opportunities to see Red Red Meat play. We convinced them to perform at our 20th anniversary festival last summer and can say with the somewhat smug confidence of recent, first-hand experience that it is highly likely you will have a very good time.
