Release Date:06/03/2016;Notes:Limited double 160 gram vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket with original artwork as well as new gatefold layout by Tom Ellard with extensive liner notes detailing the back story and creation of each individual track. Medical Records presents its 60th release with the much needed reissue of Australia's Severed Heads and their 1985 release Stretcher. After personnel changes in 1985 (Garry Bradbury and Paul Deering left the band), Sev was now down to a two piece (Tom Ellard and Stephen Jones). Stretcher was originally released to be a compilation to introduce the band to an American audience, but it was ultimately sold in three versions due to other countries desiring their own version (an EP in Canada and England and an LP in Australia). The name was taken from the sign on the emergency stretcher at the front of every Sydney ferry during that era. This version is based on the Volition release (Australian version) but with all the tracks from the other versions for a full collection of 17 tracks over two LPs. A bit more "accessible" than the previous City Slab Horror with a number of dance floor stompers filling out the collection such as the 12" versions of ‘Halo’ and ‘Petrol’. The collection mostly consists of new tracks written for the multiple releases for each country release but also contains a few older tracks remixed and even a demo version of ‘Harold and Cindy’ which would be later fleshed out on The Big Bigot. Two other interesting facts in regard to this collection is that it was the first time Sev used MIDI and a DX7 and every track has some radio signal mixed in there somewhere, always by accident. The original version(s) are all long out of print and becoming rare on the collector's market. Get lost in it.;Track List:1. Halo 12";2. Petrol 12";3. Oscar's Grind;4. Mambo Fist Miasma;5.
