HE IMPROBABLES “OBJECT TO BE DESTROYED”
FRI / APR 14 / 12 NOON EST at hiddenvolume.com
Philadelphia’s legendary garage trio, The Improbables and Hidden Volume Records are proud to bring you “Object To Be Destroyed” —12 songs of highly toxic fuzz and thunder that recall everything from early MC5 and The Yardbirds to The Mickey Finn and maybe even The Photon Band. The sound is Beck-ian waves of blistering guitar meets early 60s ballads meets late 60s heavy rock—yep, this one has it all. This is our very first long-player (one of many coming your way this year) and we couldn’t be happier to premier with this platter.
The details: A limited edition of 500 copies with 200 available in Oxblood Red and Bone White SWIRL and 300 in traditional BLACK vinyl. Both records come with full color insert and digital download card. PRE-ORDERS will get a download of two tracks “Crawl With Me” and “Save Yourself” immediately.
• Oxblood Red & Bone White SWIRL Vinyl: $15 + shipping
• BLACK Vinyl: $12 + shipping

WHO ARE THE IMPROBABLES?
The Improbables initially formed in mid-1990s South Jersey out of a mutually and subsequently expanding love for Link Wray, Bo Diddley, the Cramps, Billy Childish, the Damned, Estrus Records, and the English Freakbeat comps. Spurred at the time by an oddly thriving Atlantic City independent music scene, the band honed their frenetic live set on the stage of the now defunct McGuire’s Erin Bar and at a variety of Philadelphia venues. The Imps saw numerous lineup shifts over the ensuing years, disbanded for a while, and since reforming have established themselves as one of Philly’s premier rock’n’roll trios. They have played with the likes of the Lyres, Lilys, and the Detroit Cobras, as well as with Hidden Volume labelmates The Stents and Louie Louie. In 2014, Hi-Vo released their “Bad Vibrations” (HV007) single and a follow up split single (HV0015) in 2015 (with The Stents)—both quickly sold out.
Equal parts 60-70’s garage, soul, psychedelia and punk, the band’s songs recall and preserve those moments in the life of rock ‘n’ roll when it was able to be self-aware without being self-conscious, and when a good time was inevitable.
