BRATMOBILE'S DEBUT ALBUM 'POTTYMOUTH' BACK IN PRINT ON VINYL ON 11/18
October 28, 2014Bratmobile's 1993 debut Pottymouth is BACK ON VINYL for the first time in over 10 years on 11/18/2014.
Critical praise for Pottymouth :
"Has any band ever done unalloyed, sneering contempt quite as witheringly as Pottymouth -era Bratmobile? " - Stereogum
"We need more bands like Bratmobile, especially in this sexually regressive, overly commercialized MySpace-rock environment. Pottymouth is a definitive riot grrrl record and essential listening for fans of indie rock and punk." - James Elliott, Amoeba Records
"The album is like a slap in the face: it's over before you realize what you're feeling but its sting lasts a good long while." - Trouser Press Record Guide
"...Pottymouth was an album full of jittery agitations, quickly solidifying the group as one of the Pacific Northwest’s garage greats." - The AV Club
The 2014 pressing of Pottymouth is on pink marble vinyl and includes a digital download code. Pre-order your copy at goo.gl/Heu3hl
