Following in the snow tracks of When I See The Sun, Numero Group’s massive, near-complete Codeine overview, comes What About The Lonely, an eight song LP recorded at the group’s live zenith. Captured direct from the mixing board at a stop on Codeine’s November 1993 swing through the Midwest opening for Mazzy Star, the album finds the trio of Stephen Immerwahr, John Engle, and Doug Scharin running through their hits
at Chicago’s notorious Lounge Ax for a crowd of chatty 120 Minutes fans. Gastr Del Sol’s David Grubbs joins for two songs on guitar, slinking on and off the two foot stage with little fanfare, but leaving an indelible mark on the performance.
Constructed for Record Store Day 2013, What About The Lonely will be issued as a one-time pressing of 2000 150 gram LPs. There will be no CD or digital component.
