Remastered Reissue of 1988 Album with Accompanying Second 45RPM Disc featuring 3 Bonus Tracks from the Same Era!
Undertow, the re-issued second LP from Blind Idiot God (BIG) and the first produced by Bill Laswell, is a sonic realization of the unique, genre defying instrumental music of the band. Working with such diverse artists as Motörhead and Sly and Robbie, Laswell was uniquely positioned to bring the force and clarity necessary to deliver BIG's sound to the uninitiated. The reissue of this album recorded in 1988, newly remastered and including bonus tracks from the same era, is further evidence of just how far ahead of their time Blind Idiot God was. The bonus 45 RPM disc of the vinyl reissue includes their hard driving collaboration with Henry Rollins for the title track of the movie Freaked, remixed and including the original longer, never released version, as well as their collaboration with John Zorn, "Purged Specimen." Tracks that expand further the tremendous width and breadth of their musical achievements, running straight through boundaries that hold others back.
