Here's some bang for your buck in the holiday season. Hydra Head is dropping a bomb with this reissue. Originally on the late Lance Hahn's label Honey Bear, Nervous Circuits was a kick to the head when it dropped in '97. We'd seen the Black Flag energy before, but the addition of keys and a light show upped the ante like few had at that point. Six Finger Satellite had done stuff in that vein (and a lot of others, apparently) but The VSS and Lifter Puller blew minds and speakers alike with their angular attack and jagged rhythms.
I'm not sure how many copies Lance moved of Nervous Circuits the first time around, but Hydra Head is making it worth checking out with this reissue. The record is remastered and repackaged in a sweet gatefold digipak with a DVD of three entire live shows plus a handful of miscellaneous live videos. The first thousand come with an additional cd with five unreleased tracks and another live show. All for $13. You could do a whole lot worse, my friends, and I can tell you that I bought a copy for the holidays and got one with the bonus disc, so you'd do well go act quick-like. Here's a link. Break out the black hair dye and the high-water pants and get your spazz on all over the home or office.
