In partnership with seminal punk label Touch & Go Records, Third Man are re-issuing for the first time in more than twenty-five years the full discography of punishing Michigan hardcore punk blues band Laughing Hyenas, remastered from the original analog tapes by Bob Weston.
Taking the name from a Mark Twain line, the Laughing Hyenas went back into Smart Studios with Butch Vig to record their debut full-length You Can’t Pray A Lie. The Hyenas further elaborated on the template that Merry Go Round set. Kevin, Jim and Larissa lay down deceptively simple hillbilly voodoo blues that at the same time is so rhythmically complex you’re never quite sure what’s going on. Brannon’s vocals are as frenzied and intense as ever. With the balance and everything just right on You Can’t Pray A Lie, our dear Hyenas recorded and released one of the milestone/ cornerstone albums of the 1980s American underground music scene.
