Terminal Sunglasses - Wrap Around Cool (LP)


$ 19.99


Garage rock greats Terminal Sunglasses' only album gets a vinyl reissue through Artoffact Records.

The psychedelic garage band Terminal Sunglasses were part of the Montreal punk and new wave scene from 1983 to 1985. Labelled an 'avant-garage' band, they updated 60s influences with the Velvet Underground's sound, and filtered it all through 1980s punk sensibilities and a wonderful sense of humour. In 1985, they released their only LP, Wrap Around Cool, on the amazing OG Music label. The record immediately shot to the top of the college and community radio charts, remaining at the #1 position for many weeks.

The band also produced two videos, one for the catchy 'Antenna Dilemna' which was immediately banned from MuchMusic, and a second for 'Psycho Rail,' which features a cameo by Leonard Cohen, one of the band's biggest fans.

Never satisfied with the sound quality on the original pressing, the band worked with Artoffact Records on a monumental restoration project that included combining several different source tapes and no less than three different mastering studios in Canada. The results are spectacular!

The newly remastered Wrap Around Cool is now reissued on both vinyl and CD with a beautifully written liner-note essay by Bobby Beaton of The Gruesomes, whose first performance was as opening act to the Terminal Sunglasses. Both formats offer previously unreleased photos and gig poster scans. A limited collector's edition on pink vinyl is available in a pressing of 200 copies.
