Amphetamine Reptile and Treehouse Records team up to present Record Store Day bombshell!


For Record Store Day 2017, Amphetamine Reptile presents two Treehouse Records exclusive 30th anniversary vinyl reissues of Minneapolis noise legends Cows’ first LP, “Taint Pluribus,Taint Unum.”  Both are individually hand-printed and screened by Thomas Hazelmyer (aka Haze XXL).  One LP is released in an edition of 25 numbered copies.  The other, a special artist edition, is limited to a mere 5 copies.  Haze XXL himself will be on hand to sign these special records on RSD beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 22nd, until they’re gone.  The recent less limited mail order editions sold out in four minutes, so we expect these to go quick!

The occasion marks the first time in 30 years that this amazing album will be legally available since the original 1987 Treehouse Records release (for those too young to remember, Treehouse Records was a label that existed from 1987-1990 before it became a record shop 10 years later).  It is also the first time that Amphetamine Reptile has manufactured an exclusive “record shop only” edition of a release.  As if that weren’t enough, there will be a CD version available for a mere $5 (or absolutely free with the purchase of the LP).

Mr. Hazelmyer and Mr. Trehus are available for interviews, and welcome the opportunity to be interviewed together.  There is quite the back story to be told.
