Published Sep 04, 2014Sure to make fans of 12-inch records, Star Wars arguments and Kevin Smith's breakthrough film Clerks to go "ticking clock berserker," it's been revealed that the soundtrack to the iconic indie film is about to receive its first-ever vinyl pressing this fall. The alt-rock armed release makes its way onto turntables November 11 through SRC.
Originally issued on CD and cassette in 1994, the record is due to appear as a double LP in a couple of vinyl variants; 500 are being pressed with the first LP appearing on white vinyl and the second platter popping up on black. The standard version, meanwhile, has it all arriving on "clear with black smoke." There are three sides of music preserved here, with the D side showcasing an etching. All of this is housed in a gatefold sleeve.
In addition to a handful of dialogue snippets from the film, the soundtrack featured era-appropriate tunes from alternative nation vets like of Alice in Chains, the Jesus Lizard, Girls Against Boys and Seaweed. There are also punk and metal contributions from Corrosion of Conformity and Bad Religion, and an appearance from alt-country supergroup Golden Smog. According to a press release, "the cost of licensing the songs on the soundtrack cost more than the film cost to make."
