I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve listened to NOBUNNY‘S debut LOVE VISIONS, an album bursting with bubblegummy good-bad-touch scummy rock songs that could only be performed by a half naked guy in a filthy bunny mask. It’s the auditory version of an R. Crumb drawing, fucked up and oddly adorable at the same time. I love everything this man-beast has released, especially last year’s record store day 7″, the MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL ep, which is the best middle finger in the form of vinyl record that I’ve seen to date.


Today ALMOST READY RECORDS gives LOVE VISIONS the record store day collectable treatment, transforming this already iconic LP into a boxed set of six 7″s. All tracks have been remastered from the original sources, but they still maintain NOBUNNY’s loveably disgusting sound. Harry, almighty czar of ALMOST READY/LAST LAUGH/MIGHTY MOUTH informed me this was “an idea I came up with while hovering drunk over his merch table.” If only all drunken ideas were as good as this, in addition to the records, there is a poster and a NOBUNNY-curated insert of liner notes, lyrics, and history. Oh but wait, there’s more, 5 boxes contain a bonus 7″ single of “JOB” by NUBS, which has to be one of my favorite KBD songs of all time. It doesn’t get any better than this, kids. Look for a NOBUNNY/NUBS/CHARLIE TWEEDLE show in San Francisco sometime this summer, and also keep your eyes peeled for a new release from SNEAKY PINKS (which I hope has more genius lyrics along the lines of “I want a blow job, I want a hot dog”) from ALMOST READY soon!

(In case you were wondering, these are some (of many) photos that Harry sent me from a trip to McDonald’s where he just happened to have some NOBUNNY box sets in his bag. So, if you buy one that smells like french fries, this is why. Photos: Harry Howes)
