Carmelita Sings-Visions of a Rock Apocalypse was released originally in 2000 now many years later silver sprocket bicycle club has this super sweet deluxe re-issue of the album. You vinyl snobs can cry now because this is a CD only release, but personally that doesn’t really matter to me because it’s a great package, so great I now own the original one and the re-issue. The extra stuff on here includes b-sides, unreleased radio performances from ’99. You also get a sweet forty page art book, buttons and stickers and as a super bonus there’s a download code for another full length. And that’s so good it could have just been another release on its own. If you’re not familiar with Bobby Joe Ebola & the Children Macnuggits they have a very unique style of punk that is truly one of a kind. I haven’t heard any other band that sounds anything close to this, it’s goofy, dark, funny, fun, and it’s got a great mix of acoustic and dual vocals when needed. This album is especially great because it’s got some of the band’s best songs (like ‘I Love Drugs’). As far as re-issues go this gets an A++ it’s one of the best re-issues you’ll come across, if you don’t already own this album, get all over this. And if you do already own it, fuckin re-buy it because it’s very well worth it.
