Until just a few weeks ago, there were two recent brilliant albums that were so unjustly out of print it almost caused me physical pain. (Ah, who am I kidding with that "almost"?) One was King Tuff's 2008 debut, thankfully and perfectly now back out on Burger. The other was the first White Fence LP, the lo-fi hi-fuzz debut by Tim Presley, which cracked 2010 in half with a home-taped take on '60s freakbeat and '70s DIY punk. Ever wish The Pretty Things were more like The Homosexuals? And more importantly, does that sentence make total sense to you? If so, this reissue (on Drag City's new sublabel, God?) is already whispering your name along with names like Syd Barrett, Mark E. Smith, T.V. Smith and Roky Erickson. Buy it and dissolve. -
