One of the awesome parts about working with somewhat contemporary artists is the fastidious self-archiving. Unwound’s Justin Trosper and Sara Lund saved thousands of photos, flyers, clippings, and ‘zines over their ten year run, but nothing is more impressive then the VHS collection that Lund had stored in a Trader Joes-brand brown bag. We recently had the entire caboodle transferred and are slowly going through the footage in an attempt to catalog for a possible Blu-Ray in 2015.
To hold you over until then, we cut together the scant amount of footage featuring original Unwound drummer Brandt Sandeno into this mini video—which does double duty as a reminder to pre-order Kid Is Gone, the first of four box sets we’re issuing by these unsung heroes from Olympia, Washington, over the next two years. Check it out:
The 3LP box is running in a limited edition of 4000 copies worldwide, but we’re also selling a deluxe edition on our website only, that includes an extremely limited bonus 4th LP, a live Sandeno-drummed set recorded in July of 2001. We’re more than halfway sold out, so if you want a copy, don’t just sit on your hands and hope one magically appears in your mail slot.
