The Raincoats

Odyshape - Blue Marble Vinyl Edition

    "Odyshape" the second album by The Raincoats originally released on Rough Trade Records in 1981.Re-mastered from original masters. It was The Raincoats I related to most. They seemed like ordinary people playing extraordinary music. Music that was natural that made room for cohesion of personalities. They had enough confidence to be vulnerable and to be themselves without having to take on the mantle of male rock/punk rock aggression…or the typical female as sex symbol avec irony or sensationalism. (Kim Gordon, Sonic Youth,1993). // We just really loved what The Raincoats were doing - they were a really exciting band. I think the thing that was good about The Raincoats simply was that the tradition that they were playing in was their own and so they had an original voice. You couldn’t ignore them - they were undeniably fascinating - the interplay between the two voices and the sound of the group was something original and that was what was exciting about them.

    The Raincoats

    The Raincoats - 40th Anniversary Edition

      Re-mastered from original masters. November 2019 marks the 40th Anniversary of the release of The Raincoats’ self-titled debut album and the band plan to celebrate with a series of live performances in the UK and at Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht. In 1979, The Raincoats helped shape the timeless notion that punk is what you make it to be - an act of raw expression, not any one sound. Their anarchy was poetic. The group’s debut album ‘The Raincoats’, which Kurt Cobain called “wonderfully classic scripture”, was released 40 years ago by Rough Trade Records at its radical beginnings, setting a crucial precedent for feminist work within a DIY context. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this album, We ThRee announce a special limited edition of 1000 copies. Includes a Limited edition print by Ana da Silva, founder member and songwriter and a Limited edition print by Gina Birch, founder member and songwriter. Additional song "Fairytale in the Supermarket" included. Press campaign by Stone Immaculate Press.

      The Raincoats have offered creative and spiritual inspiration for several generations of artists such as John Lydon, Kim Gordon, Kurt Cobain, Carrie Brownstein, Bikini Kill, Angel Olsen... “I really don’t know much about The Raincoats except that they recorded some music that has affected me so much that whenever I hear it I’m reminded of a particular time in my life when I was (shall we say) extremely unhappy, lonely and bored. If it weren’t for the luxury of putting on that scratchy copy of The Raincoats’ first record, I would have had very few moments of peace” Kurt Cobain // “It was The Raincoats I related to most.
