I'm now taking preorders for the upcoming KOWLOON WALLED CITY full length LP+CD, entitled Gambling on the Richter Scale, which is due out September 29 on The Perpetual Motion Machine.
On Gambling on the Richter Scale, their first full-length, San Francisco's KOWLOON WALLED CITY add a touch of finesse to the grinding pummel introduced on last year’s Turk Street EP, which drew comparisons to Neurosis, The Melvins and other low-end explorers, from the ‘90s AmRep roster to the current crop of sludgecore contenders. Their eight song full length was recorded in April-May 2009 by guitarist Scott Evans and mastered by Greg Thompson.
Limited to 500 copies, the LP is available in two color variations, clear (limited to 300) and black/silver mix (limited to 200). All copies come packaged in heavy, full color jackets and include a CD version, packaged in a separate silkscreened sleeve.
As with the last couple PMM preorders, I'm doing a run of limited edition shirts to accompany preorders. The shirt design, which features an image of earthquake thrust planes will come with white ink printed on charcoal grey, ultra-comfy cotton Next Level shirts (comparable to American Apparel shirts). I've also got a few copies of their Turk Street 10" EP in the store, so make sure to grab one if you don't have it (you can download it for free here). Preorders will begin shipping in late September.
