"Couple Tracks" is a compilation of Fucked Up's many, many hard-to-find uncollected 7" and 12" tracks. It contains 24 songs and will be accompanied by a 7" single of the same name. Designed as a sequel to their earlier compilation, Epics In Minutes (Deranged, 2004), the cover photographs riff on the Beatles red and blue albums thang. Comes with complete illustrated discography of the contents, with extensive liner notes about each song. A digital download is included with purchase.
"Couple Tracks" spans an extraordinarily varied (and extraordinarily collectible) musical career that has mainly been documented on 7-inch vinyl singles released around the world on many labels in many countries. Chronologically, it ranges from the A-side of their first single, No Pasarán, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War released on Deranged in 2002, to the fast alternate take of No Epiphany, their latest 7" on Matador from earlier this year.
