Two Magazines Have the Nuts to Review The Early Stages

Wire magazine said this . . .

“Early Stages are an Austin, Texas quartet who’s single reminds me of some of the oddball groups who were putting stuff out just before the punk thing came along. While this has a real churn to it, its proggy underlayer and vocals are somewhere between Armand Schaubroeck and Donnie Jupiter. Curiously appealing.”

That’s a goodish review. He’s one from the great Maximum Rock N Roll (maga)zine . . .

“Sublime art punk from Austin, Texas. A mish mash of the Dunedin sound, Chairs Missing era WIRE or even Colin Newman solo material, and early REM. Great stuff. This is their first vinyl release. I look forward to hearing more.”

That was about as sweet as a review can be, and from a magazine that can be pretty vicious when they don’t like something. So, thanks to Allan McNaughton who wrote that.

Despite printing the least amount possible of a single, there are still copies available.
