Artist: REBEL, THE
Title: Incredible Hulk
Format: LP
Label: Junior Aspirin
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"A new full length LP by COUNTRY TEASERS frontman BEN "THE REBEL" WALLERS is always something to be savored. The Incredible Hulk is a brooding and brilliant work. Its darkness is punctured by skewed, experimental pop songs. The epic, pitch-black opener "Ambient Pasteman" details childrens TV character Postman Pats relationship problems ("Postman Pat booted out his wife because Postman Pat didnt like his wife") and is followed by the poppier "Cherish" ("we must cherish the drugs we have, for as long as we have the drugs") and the anthemic "Aiming Low, Getting High" (released on 7-inch by Lexi-Disques last year). "Christmas Every Day" is a snapshot of a nightmare-a man talks in earnest about how he celebrates Christmas every day, watching the Queens speech on endless video loops. The voice emerges from monstrous guitar noise and machine gun fire. Wallers satirical brilliance is to the fore with "On My Own"-it has a rather catchy chorus but the lyrics are an interpolation of a popular pedophile joke which then works as an intro for "The Forest"-a psychotic recontextualization of "A Forest" by The Cure. A crackling copy of that record is put on and gets stuck on Smiths familiar vocal "again and again and again"-looping over and over. Is this an acid blast at 60s-80s recycling in the moribund British pop scene, a twisted tribute, or a sick joke? Or all of the above? The Rebel is fucking with us again-thank God. Limited edition of 500 copies. UK import, no exports outside of North America." -Junior Aspirin

Title: Race Against Time Hots Up
Format: LP
Label: Junior Aspirin
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The Race Against Time Hots Up is a big time return to songwriting from COUNTRY TEASERS frontman BEN "THE REBEL" WALLERS. Wallers albums are always something to be savored-but skewed, experimental, sardonic pop music is his metier and The Race Against Time Hots Up is up there with his best albums (such as cult favorites Prawns and Satan Is Real Again). Check out the songs "Tyme," "Colaboration," "Adam, Eve, Mary and Fumeha" or "Keen Air for Chasseur John"-in fact check all tracks, this album is pop-chock-stock full o goodies from the renegade master. Vinyl only, limited to 500 copies only." - Junior Aspirin.

Title: Five Year Plan
Format: LP
Label: Monofonus Press
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"We couldnt be happier to present to the world a new release from one of our favorite recording artists OF ALL FUCKING TIME! BEN WALLERS aka THE REBEL is the main man behind COUNTRY TEASERS, and continues to amaze with the near constant flow of material out on a variety of labels including a 2007 release from Austin label Emperor Jones. Since playing in our garage in March of 2006 weve kept in contact (aka drunk g-chatting), and a couple months ago he was generous enough to send us 13 songs to choose from. Weve selected our three favorites, and pressed them up proper on a 12_ EP titled The Five Year Plan. Full color everything.... label, jacket, and screen printed B Side. Looks/Sounds amazing. Fans of Ronnie OSullivan will be extra stoked. Limited to only 300 copies." -Monofonus Press

Title: Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Sacred Bones Records presents Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable⿿the next full-length from London, Englands The Rebel. The alter ego of Country Teasers Ben Wallers, The Rebel dates back to the tail-end of the 80s⿿having existed side-by-side throughout the Teasers prolific career⿿often releasing records at a steadier clip than Wallers main project with songs too madcap to fit into even their William- Burroughs-by-way-of-The-Residents take on country music. Wallers characteristic self-aware irony and surreal gender/race ruminations are still present but sitting backseat in this more fleshed out concept album about decaying conditions on the planet 3ar7h. Although Burroughs comparisons are inevitable, Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable could only have been scripted by The Rebel. The albums narrator is in a band, has a valet named Mulholland, but inhabits an otherwise unrecognizable dystopian landscape where evil science laboratories combat college radio personalities, and nuclear war with Iran is well underway. Important issues of today and tomorrow are touched on. In ⿿Why Must I Pay?⿝ Mr. Thatcher, a future Prime Minister, is excoriated for the rising costs of tea, rent, drugs and sex. In ⿿Scarlett Johansen Conceiving the Design⿝ we are shown a horrific world in which starlets replace scientists as consumerdoms inventors. In ⿿Youre Just Like Tammy Wynette⿝ the Radical Islam Problem is diagnosed by looking at the politics of ladies headgear, while in ⿿Turtle v. Octopus⿝ a battle between Lovecraftian ancient adversaries plays out, potentially affecting the future of Music itself. This is the first Rebel album to be recorded in the studio with a live backing band...that band being Country Teasers. In terms of sound, Northern Rocks Bears Weird Vegetable exchanges The Rebels clautrophobic home studio layers and d.i.y. effects for the improvisational band chemistry and controlled looseness of Country Teasers infamous live act." - Sacred Bones.
