The Coathangers - The Coathangers [Deluxe Edition]
Reissue of the long out of print debut album by The Coathangers.
Remastered With Two Bonus Tracks. Expanded Artwork By Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound). Fourteen years ago, four young Atlanta women picked up instruments without any prior musical experience or lofty aspirations and decided that they were going to start a band so that they could play a friend’s party. The house-show begat more shows around town, and the feisty and eery live sets resulted in an album.
Recorded during a single graveyard shift at a local studio and mixed the following night, the self-titled debut album by The Coathangers was a raw, rowdy, and revelrous affair. What it lacked in polish it made up for in its undeniable energy and charisma. “We didn’t think anyone was going to listen to it,” says vocalist/guitarist Julia Kugel. “We knew our friends in Atlanta would get it, but we didn’t think it was going to go anywhere. We were just excited to make a record.” Little did Kugel or her bandmates—vocalist/drummer Stephanie Luke, bassist/vocalist Meredith Franco, and keyboardist Candice Jones—know that their scrappy house show-anthems would catch on, prompting years of international tours, a slew of excellent LPs and singles, and, eventually, a deluxe version of their boisterous debut, The Coathangers. The eponymous debut album is a whirlwind ride of a band at the most frenzied, celebratory, and free moment of their existence. As a standalone record, it’s a brash and bawdy rocker sure to please anyone who likes their rock n’ roll sweaty and messy.
+ Neon Strawberry Banana Pinwheel vinyl.
As a piece in the band’s legacy, it’s an exhilarating reminder of the band’s youthful care-free beginnings. Suicide Squeeze Records is proud to offer up the deluxe remastered version of The Coathangers. This latest version of the album includes the bonus tracks “Wife Eyes” from the Hard Candy EP and the title track from the Never Wanted You EP. The Coathangers will be available on vinyl, which features expanded artwork by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound) in a gatefold jacket.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
