Oh yep. I’ve since forgotten who introduced me to Amphetamine Reptile Records way back in the day, but it was a fine and more than a little insane musical journey that was great while it lasted. MVD Entertainment Group is getting me (and some of you) to relive those glory days of noise rock with what’s going to be one of the best documentaries on the subject, Eric Robel’s The Color of Noise in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack. This trailer gives you a little taste of what to expect when the doc appears on home video November 24 and even better, MVD and AmRep will also re-issue some of the best releases from the label’s catalog on vinyl and CD starting in December 2015 and continuing into 2016 and beyond.

Ah, the follies of youth… Anyway, if you need to find a record store near you, just clicky-click on this link and get on down to get yours. I bet that’s a damn good track Rob’s done… Hmmm, I wonder what happens when you play it FORWARDS? Oh, someone will find out. Hopefully it’s just a couple of tickets to The Lords of Salem that pops up at that person’s doorstep, heh…
