Pre-Cooked / Converted: The Bad Rice Demos
Release date: January 27, 2015
Previously unissued demos of the cult classic 1970 Ron Nagle album Bad Rice!
Between being a member of San Francisco rock group the Mystery Trend in the mid-’60s, and his later work with musical partner Scott Mathews (together known as Durocs), artist and maverick songsmith Ron Nagle made one solo album. Released in 1970, Bad Rice remains a classic showcase for Nagle’s trademark blend of Stones-y raunch, Beach Boys lilt and Newman-esque black humor.
Omnivore Recordings is proud to present Pre Cooked / Converted: The Bad Rice Demos as a digital album with detailed liner notes by longtime Nagle observer Gene Sculatti. These tracks can also be found on Disc 2 of the expanded CD release of Bad Rice.
