Spiral Stairs and Preston School of Industry 2018 reissues

Posted Feb. 3, 2018, 7:33 p.m. in Records by Loren

Spiral Stairs and Preston School of Industry will be reissuing records in 2018. Both bands feature Scott Kannberg (Pavement).

Throughout the year, Nine Mile Records will reussie Preston School of Industry's All This Sounds Gas (2001), Preston School Of Industy's Monsoon (2004), and Spiral Stairs' The Real Feel (2009). Each reissues also includes extra songs, b-sides and other previously unreleased material.

I love when bands have extra songs. B-sides is not really the correct term. Extra songs are just songs that didn’t really fit the concept of a 9-12 track album. Maybe because of theme or quality, but mostly because of time issues. So, what to do with the extras. They get sidelined to the b-side of singles, comps, or sometimes never released...For me, beside the extra songs that didn’t make the records, it was a chance to have fun with experiments in sound. I was doing or covering some of my favorite songs like The Clean’s “Anything Could Happen” or “10 Grains” by De Artsen. 

Spiral Stairs is booked for two upcoming shows in California later this month (details below, along with track listings). The band also just shared a new remix from 2017's Doris and the Daggers, remixed by Kelley Stoltz and Allyson Baker:
