This is a re-post from July the 28th 2006. Added more scans.
This time around I let Guy Robert Archambue aka lewdsnot aka zoloft_anaconda aka biggest thief in punk history write the post: “CONNECTICUT holy grail uberrare punk killer THE REDUCES with OUT OF STEP and NO AMBITION vintage original, sleeve light wear ex- for that after 25-26 years and vinyl light age wear, paper scuffs to a minimum, call it ex- for some light stuff after a two and a half decades on this ultrarare killed by death vintage first gen punk original nanxiety, do not miss it, it is a true killer, only a couple hundred made. cash or postal money order or what vinyl you would be willing to see what you can mail me for this, thanks a ton, email me anytime.”.
This means I have a spare copy of this for sale/trade with a repro of the sleeve. Check out The Reducers official site:www.thereducers.com. Still going strong since 1978!
Label: Rave On
Out Of Step.mp3
i have the s/t lp for trade if anyone is intrested, both these songs are on it…
Grew up a couple towns over in Connecticut from these guys. Too bad I wasn’t hip to them when they started in ’78 (I was 5 it wasn’t my fault). They still play out ten times a year or so. Same four guys since ’78. Saw them twice this year when I was home visiting the folks and they still sound great. On the documentary that came out a couple years ago I think Peter Detmold said there were a couple thousand copies of this 7″, but with how often these show up, it does seem more rare than that. They have a new record coming out soon.
Do you know where I can get hold of that documentary?
You can order a DVD of the documentary from the Reducer’s own record label, Rave On Records:
I am interested in either the 1st LP or the single if either one is still available. Please write email@example.com.
You can get all the lps (sealed old stock) from the Reducers’ website:
The 1st is rough but great.
The 2nd is better recorded but equally great (especially the incomparable title track “Let’s Go”).
The 3d isn’t so great but has its charms (especially “Fistfight at the Beach”).
