about

The opus to the inner-child and seemingly unconnected (yet connected) themes! To quote: “There’s something slightly schizophrenic about Countach, The Cassettes’ new album. The songs aren’t so much composed as hammered together from utterly random cultural detritus: The Patrick Swayze film Black Dog, Navajo warriors, reptile people, Italian horror movie scores. Guitarist/vocalist Shelby Cinca—former member of spazz-core pioneers Frodus—describes Countach as “Choose Your Own Adventure” rock ‘n’ roll: a type of music where one page turn (or in this case, song break) can bring a disorienting shift in subject matter.” — A. Leitko

Originally released on cassette with download card, toy horse and race-car. Limited edition of 250 (2008). New edition of 100 cassettes pressed in 2011.

Make a courageous choice!
