Kelley Stoltz - Crokodials
Record Store Day 2020 release
Nine X Nine - "Kelley Stoltz’s track for track covers album of Echo and the Bunnymen’s Crocodiles available for the first time on vinyl courtesey of Nine X Nine Records. Originally recorded in late 2001, the album was not released until 2006 and was only available on CD (originally as a tour only CD via Beautiful Happiness). Stoltz took up the mantle of rhythm guitar in the Bunnymen’s live set up in 2016, after a few high profile state-side support slots won largely because of this album. Remastered by Mikey Young and pressed on 180-gram red vinyl, with original artwork and new sleeve notes from Bunnymen guitarist Will Sergeant and Scott Kannberg (Pavement), there’s never been a better time to discover this gem from Stoltz’s back catalogue. Includes a bonus 7-inch with three early demos of 14 year old Kelley’s band. These are the earliest known recordings of Stoltz’s Bunnymen covers. This EP is exclusive to the RSD release and will not be available with any subsequent reissue."
