Artist: ALBRIGHT, CHARLES
Title: Im Happy, Im A Genius
Format: 7"
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Charles Albright self-released a 7" last year (2009) that knocked us out. It obviously had the same effect on Scott Soriano at S-S Records, cuz he reissued it on his own label. Its long since sold out and highly sought after. Anyhow, heres Mr. Albrights (not the serial killer, unfortunately) follow-up, a killer 7-song EP. Its a blown-out, lo-fi, catchy punk jammer with loads of hooks and sweet riffs. A couple of the tracks are experimental guitar instrumentals that give you a chance to catch your breath before picking yourself up off the ground to begin pogoing again. Charles is a big fan of Black Flag and if you are too (especially the early stuff), youll probably dig this slab." -Permanent.

Artist: ALBRIGHT, CHARLES
Title: Weight/I Am The Counter Culture (Drop Out)
Format: 7"
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Were obviously not the only ones whove been anxiously awaiting a third record from Albright. And here it is?yet another blown‐out, lo-fi, catchy punk jammer with loads of hooks and sweet riffs to complete the trifecta. Albrights still a fine young man and hes doing so well. Hes still on drugs and hes still happy hes a genius (and so are we), but hes not singing about any of that on this record. This Sacto punk has brutalized us twice before, but never quite like this. The third times definitely a charm and even though Charles is no longer a loner he is still absolutely in charge on this one. Weight finds Mr. A drumless for the first time ever, but the repetitive riff-tensity hides the lack of percussion pretty damn well on this wham‐bam-thank-you-maam punker. For the B-side, Charles mustve taken a ride on the Silver Machine, but hes obviously still feeling mean, cuz the riff behind I Am The Counter Culture (Drop Out) sounds quite a bit like a certain Hawkwind jam we all know and love. But this aint no cover song, (Drop Out) stands on its own as a killer psychedelic punk number for the ages. This incredible single is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies and precedes the sure to be mind melting debut full-length due out this Fall. Turn on, Tune In, and (Drop Out) while supplies last." -Permanent

Artist: ALBRIGHT, CHARLES
Title: Im On Drugs
Format: 7"
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"This is the official S.S. repressing of the Charles Albright 7" that came and went earlier this year. We flipped over it and sold most of the 100 copies Charles pressed up for himself and when it was gone, asked the man if we could repress it. He said yes and here ya go. In case you dont know: Charles Albright has been a fixture in Sacramentos underground punk scene for over a decade. Chances are the only band of Charles that youve heard is the Pizzas, but he has been in a ton of them. This here is the first solo record hes ever done and it is a killer. No bullshit psych punk that still lurks in the garage and has great over-blown guitar that sounds like young Charles has soaked up plenty Leigh Stephens and Greg Ginn, which he has. Three songs long, one sided. This repress is only 400 and with a different sleeve than the first." -S-S
