“What Another Man Spills” MERGE
Out now. First time pressed to vinyl in North America!! Originally released in 1998, What Another Man Spills celebrates 20 years in 2018. The album represents a milestone in Lambchop’s career, but not in the modern sense of a ‘landmark’ release. Building on foundations that had once sounded almost literally creaky, it expands upon the tentative manoeuvres they’d undertaken with the previous year’s Thriller
(1997) and gestures confidently towards its brassy successor, Nixon,
which would arrive in 2000 to wild acclaim and previously unimaginable commercial success. Indeed, it sits at a crossroads between the band that Lambchop first emerged as, and the band that they would later become. In terms of production, What Another Man Spills represented a huge leap forward, taking bold stylistic strides towards uncharted territory.
