That’s right… VINYL RELEASE!!

Texas Tea are back in 2010 with a new release… and it’s VINYL! The limited (and hand numbered) double cover long player is a collection of rarities from the alt-country duo.

The first, “Fire Sides” is taken from an all-night campfire session recorded from midnight to 8am at Junkship Studios during Texas Tea’s original studio time for ‘The Junkship Recordings’. This is an intimate and raw field recording featuring renowned local producer Jamie Trevaskis on the saw. Amongst the music, you can hear the fire crackling, the night birds and the passing cars. This is a special experience in audio, listen as if you were there.

The flipside, “Last Drinks”, encompasses B-Sides and rarities from Take A Sip and other, more recent additions, including a duet recorded in Bretagne with The French Cowboy, Orville Brody, and a cover of the John & June sock hopper ‘I got a woman’. This version of ‘I Got A Woman’, a would-be 7” single, was intended for release in France last year but never made it to the pressing plant.

Texas Tea will be launching the LP at the Troubadour on Friday March 12th where they will deliver a selection of the songs. Accompanied by the astoundingly good, Fergus McAlpin and Adam Afiff (of Melbourne’s Silver City Highway) and other special guests.

The limited numbered vinyl will ONLY be available to buy at Texas Tea’s live shows. THESE WILL SELL OUT! ONLY 150 IN AUSTRALIA. Be there to get your copy.
