California alt-rockers Thin White Rope formed in 1982ish and released Exploring The Axis in 1985. Associated with the Paisley Underground and Desert Rock movements, they honestly sound more like American New Wave bands such as Wall Of Voodoo, The Weathermen, and Television. You’ll hear dueling dual guitars, expertly manipulated feedback, and obscure lyrics across these ten tracks of bleak southern twang. Highlights include "Dead Grammas", a jaunty ramble with gated drums, while "Eleven" is dominated by angular post-punk guitars. This reissue features newly remastered audio.
