about

Pretty much the only Weisstronauts album you REALLY need. These are the best songs from 1999 - 2012.

Included are two previously-unreleased tracks: a cover of Bubble Puppy's "Hot Smoke & Sassafras" (mixed by the legendary Roger Bechirian and featuring Mitch Easter playing three guitar solos), and "Handball!" (a live favorite, it is the band's ode to a somewhat obscure Olympic sport.)

'Nauts scholars should note that all the songs in this collection have been completely remastered from the ground up. And in certain cases, the songs appear in a slightly different form/mix than was originally released. "Perky," in fact, has been completely remixed by Roger Bechirian, giving the rhythm section more punch and the guitars a bit more atmosphere than the original mix. Other songs, such as "Psychedelic Whiplash," "Hot Dog City" and "Sunsetty," have slightly longer playing times than their original versions.

about

The Weisstronauts Boston, Massachusetts

The Boston-based Weisstronauts are a difficult-to-pigeonhole instrumental rock band employing three electric guitars.

"Then there’s the Weisstronauts, who toss major surf rock influences into a blender with everything else they’ve ever even sort of liked and pull out songs built on combinations that look insane on paper but absolutely kill once you hear them."
- Richard Bouchard
Boston Band Crush
