Zipper Zipper on Limited Edition LP
40th Anniversary Reissue!
For their 50th label release, Permanent Records could not be more excited to announce the 40th Anniversary reissue of Zipper's self-titled LP from 1975! You all know Fred Cole and Dead Moon. And yes, Pierced Arrows too! But preceding both of his more 'famous' bands (and others like The Rats) was Zipper!
Formed when Fred and Toody Cole returned to Portland, OR after homesteading in Alaska, Zipper was the beginning of both Whizeagle Records, their in-house label, and Fred's long illustrious DIY RnR career. Equal parts acid fried psych, raw blistering guitar fireworks, proto-punk pummel and bone crunchin' heavy rock machismo, Zipper was Fred's headfirst dive back into the rock world after his disillusionment with the 'garage scene' post Weeds / Lollipop Shoppe.
No managers to tell him what songs to play or what 'sound' was in. No label to fight with. Just Fred Cole and a close knit group of fellow disenchanted rock 'n' rollers (Lorry Erk, Jim Roos and Greg Shadoan), playing their in-the-red whiskey and cigarette fueled music as loud and furious as can be!" Limited edition of 350 black vinyl copies!
