Published Jan 17, 2013Twenty years after Boston-bred indie rock group Come delivered their debut LP Eleven : Eleven through Matador, the iconic imprint has revealed that it will be giving the set the deluxe treatment in 2013. The newly tweaked-up edition comes out as an expanded, double-disc set on May 7.
Matador announced the reissue on its blog, noting that the original LP has been out of print for far too long. This latest version, which comes out on double-LP and double-CD, packages the original 1992 album with a bonus disc featuring both the band's "Fast Piss Blues"/"I Got the Blues" 7-inch single and a full performance captured at the Vermonstress Festival on October 20, 1992.
Come came together in the early '90s when former Dangerous Birds/Uzi/Live Skull member Thalia Zedek teamed up with Codeine's Chris Brokaw, as well as drummer Arthur Johnson and bassist Sean O'Brien. Matador describes the latter pair as "one of the more powerful rhythm sections of the last half century." The band issued a number of singles and four full-length albums, the last of which being 1998's Gently, Down the Stream, before calling it quits in 2001.
Come did, however, play reunion shows in 2010 and 2011, and are apparently getting back together for some yet-to-be-determined performances this year, presumably in support of the reissue.
In other news, Zedek delivers her fifth solo LP, Via, on March 19 through Thrill Jockey.
