Alternative super group gets its first international release!
Jason Falkner, Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. and Brian Reitzell have quite a musical history. Manning and Falkner—once bandmates in Jellyfish—have gone on to success as solo acts, or as members of groups including The Three O’Clock, The Grays, Imperial Drag, and The Moog Cookbook. Brian Reitzell, once the drummer for Redd Kross and Air, turned his talents to film and television, supervising and composing music for several films directed by Sofia Coppola, including The Virgin Suicides and the Academy Award nominated Lost In Translation (for which he, along with Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine, was nominated for a BAFTA award.) Currently, Reitzell composes music for the NBC-TV drama Hannibal.
But, together, they were TV Eyes.
Their 2006 self-titled debut was only released in Japan, now out of print, and commanding top dollar on the collector market. Omnivore Recordings is going to rectify that situation with a CD and 2-LP expanded edition. The release features nine tracks from TV Eyes, plus 3 bonus tracks from the Japanese only EP Softcore—each of which is a song from TV Eyes, remixed by a member of the band. If that wasn’t enough, the reissue also includes the first CD appearance of “She’s A Study,” which was featured in the aforementioned Lost In Translation, and previously only available on a white label, promo 12” single a decade ago.
For its first ever issue on vinyl, the double LP will be pressed on translucent yellow vinyl. The packaging for both formats will include photos and liner notes from the band’s Jason Falkner.
It’s time to turn on your ears by turning on TV Eyes!
