Blonde Redhead shares early demo ahead of Numero Group box set release

Blonde Redhead

Blonde Redhead’s long out-of-print early recordings have finally crawled their way out of the ’90s basement thanks to Numero Group who will issue a 4LP / 2CD set on Sept. 30. Containing 37 tracks, ‘Masculin Féminin’ compiles the band’s first two albums for Steve Shelley’s Smells Like Records (self-titled and La Mia Via Violenta), their period singles, extant demos, and radio performances across four LPs or two CDs. Dozens of previously unpublished photographs illustrate two lengthy essays on this essential New York band’s formative years.  Stream the early demo, This Is The Number Of Times I Said I Will But Didn’t (4 Track Demo), via Soundcloud below.


This is the latest installment in Numero Group’s 200 Line series which has also included releases from Unwound, Bedhead, Codeine, White Zombie and The Scientists.
