Just found out the brand new label, Personal Injury Records is rereleasing a bunch of R. Stevie full lengths, Delicate Tension, Glad Music and Clack!...they're also carrying the Hearing Aid and Phonography rereleases...it's a one stop shop for all things R. Stevie. They're pressing up colored vinyl and have a package deal with a bonus zine with RSM art based on some of the tracks! It's so incredible to see this kind of care and interest in his entire catalog which has been insanely out of print for years and years.
They also contacted me about carrying my single from R. Stevie so if you want to get it all out of the way in one giant order, go for it.

In Fall 1979, R. Stevie Moore squeezed into a midtown Manhattan building at 56 West 45th Street, entered a tiny 8th floor jingle studio run by Englishman Tom Clack, and proceeded to bond bigtime with ambitious engineer Jon Child (who Uncle Harry Palmer had earlier sought out to assist in assembling the original PHONOGRAPHY album) to create one of his greatest collections of music. Still awestruck by his recent move north, R. Stevie first met Jon & Tom when the studio was utilized for compiling the DELICATE TENSION LP. With a cache of great new songs & experiments, he now was set, aimed to break down all barriers and collect audio styles galore in a “professional” 8 track environment, a major jump from mere tapedeck home demos. The project extended well into the next year (decade). Those many sessions are gathered on this 60 minute masterpiece, simply titled “CLACK!” from which many of Moore’s greatest all-time hits emerged.
