TRUE BELIEVERS- Accept It 7"
MIKE REP and TOMMY JAY are two of the Midwest's most unheralded 70s songwriters who are only just beginning to get their due in the underground circles thanks to reissues from Siltbreeze and Columbus Discount Records, and we here at Hozac have been huge fans from the sidelines for years, so after booking Mike & Tommy to play our Blackout Fest this year, we decided to hit them up for a reissue of this often overlooked gem in their quiver. TRUE BELIEVERS was the first actual "band" that "played live" of all of Mike & Tommy's projects and along with Tommy's brother, THE GENERAL, these three songs are just as pivotal, perfect and proto-punk'd as possible for these Ohio outsider icons. Originally recorded in 1979 and released on the New Age label in 1980, it's been one of the hardest releases of their canon to pin down, so we're beyond excited to make this missing link of Ohio new wave history available once again, at a reasonable price, because we all know you need more of Mike & Tommy Jay in your life. All three of these incredible tracks were only added as CD-bonus material previously so now is your chance to grip these in their original state, GUSTO HUNGRY! First pressing of 600 copies Black vinyl.
