RELEASE // Loftus ‘Loftus’ Gets Reissued With Vinyl Pressing On Jealous Butcher Records

On July 9th a mostly unheard gem in the early experimental 1990’s indie-rock world will be reissued with a first time pressing on vinyl. Before Califone, band members Tim Rutili and Ben Massarela, were in a group called Red Red Meat which joined members of Rex and Bundy K. Brown to form Loftus. The group recorded the self-titled album at Ben’s truck stop, a still functioning truck weight stop. About the rather odd recording process, Tim said, “Bundy put all our names into a hat; he’d pick three names and we’d improvise.” Eventually Bundy would turn the lights back on and they would stop, later building those sessions into full songs.

This very special reissue of the original CD is a vinyl release (pictured above) which is limited to 521 number copies on either red or clear vinyl and can be pre-order HERE prior to the July 9th release date.
