Self titled debut album set for reissue on red vinyl and CD .This is the first vinyl pressing of the album in 15 years, and the vinyl release also includes a bonus 7" single of 'County Fair/Rainbows'
The Moldy Peaches were established in the mid-90s by Adam Green and Kimya Dawson, after meeting in upstate New York. The duo helped spawn the 'anti-folk' music genre movement, bringing a more quirky, lo-fi punk element into the indie music scene. After releasing their own music for a few years, they collected their best material for a proper album, and in 2001 shared The Moldy Peaches via Rough Trade Records.
Known for their sense of humour, whimsy and self-deprecation, the album featured gems like 'Downloading Porn With Dave' and 'Who’s Got The Crack'. In 2007, 'Anyone Else But You' (another song from the aforementioned album), was used in the Academy Award winning movie Juno, and reignited the album’s cult popularity. Since then, the two founders have had continued success in their respective solo careers. Kimya Dawson has also made children’s albums, and collaborated with many artists including Aesop Rock, They Might Be Giants, and The Mountain Goats. Adam Green has several albums on Rough Trade, as well as showing exhibitions of his visual art and making films.
We asked Adam Green what he thought about reissuing the album at this time....he said "It's been 17 years since this was last released and we are putting it out again just in time to capitalise on the popularity of Juno. JK LOL 😂 we are slow at re-releasing stuff. We decided to ignore Barbara Walter's advice when she told us to strike when the iron was hot, and decided to wait until the iron had become safely tepid. Once a Moldy Peach, always a Moldy Peach. Bon appétit!"
