King Tuff - Connection
For the past few weeks I have been constantly listening to King Tuff. Non stop, multiple spins a day. This was all brought on when my fellow DJ’s introduced me to the new album and suggested I check it out. After a quick preview from What I immediately snatched a copy for myself, and good thing cause it is super sold out/out of stock from Sub Pop. Not even just the fancy Loser Vinyl, vinyl period. I’m sure they’ll get more back in or you can always check the usual distributors.
Much as I like the new album, the real gem is in his first album from 2008, Was Dead. It is a pop rock masterpiece and I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about it with it with the advent of his sophomore LP. Seriously I haven’t played this record for on person yet that hasn’t fucking up and bought it. This is my windows down, speeding to the swimming hole/secret beach blasting tunes jam. I picked up a copy of the second repress on discogs and was psyched to see my sealed copy happened to be on coke bottle, orange splashed heavy vinyl. Fucking Brilliant. The first two runs had Ltd colored vinyl thrown in randomly, score. Lucky for yall, its currently still in repress, and can be had for $13 bones directly from the label.
Grab both his LPs, but especially the first one. Wish I’d heard this in 2008, can’t believe I missed out on this for the past four years.
King Tuff - Was Dead LP (2008) is available from The Colonel Records here. For now.
King Tuff - King Tuff LP (2012) was out on Ltd splattered Red, White and Blue vinyl with rad patches to the first 300 orders. All very long gone, and even the normal vinyl is out of stock. Insound may have copies still here but they’re pretty notoriously bad for not updating their site with stocked items so don’t get yur hopes up.Source: subpop.com
