Load Records is proud to present a U.S. domestic vinyl pressing of 2006’s Asia-only release “Close Calls with Brick Walls” record. Be prepared for ultra-bombast, as this record holds a flame to the gas can of music as you know it.
2007 has been a tremendous year for Andrew W.K.: he is readying three new records, embarked on several solo performance tours, is opening a club in New York, played bass in Current 93 on their European tour, and is readying a book and a television show.
Close Calls With Brick Walls” is Andrew W.K.’s third full-length record and unifies the experimental forays of his earlier career with the over-the-top rockulism he tackled on his “I Get Wet” and “The Wolf” albums.
Packaging on this release is over-the-top as well, featuring a 10-inch full color booklet paired with a deluxe 2-LP gatefold. The artwork features many new photos and designs. Too Much! Additionally, this release features five all new bonus tracks.
