Mr. T Experience Discuss 15 Songs They Wanted to Cover in the ’90s, Reissuing Classic EP
Berkeley punk vets The Mr. T Experience are reissuing their classic 1994 EP ...And the Women Who Love Them on August 14 via Sounds Radical (pre-order). It's coming out on 12" vinyl and CD, and it's been fully remastered.
"It's a miracle that this master survived," frontman Dr. Frank tells us. "When I first started gathering and inventorying what was left of the old tapes, it was was nowhere to be found and I gave it up for lost. Eventually, while looking for something else, I found a safety copy on DAT amid a jumble of press and promo materials in an old bag of stuff. I guess it had fallen in there at some point from somewhere else. (Like the master for my solo album, which turned out to have been inadvertently stored for many years in an old boot.) The next question was, would it play and could the 'information' be extracted from it? The answer was yes, obviously, but it was mostly just luck."

MTX "And the Women Who Love Them" Reissue
MTX "And the Women Who Love Them" reissue out August 14th, 2020 on 12" EP and CD. We've work tirelessly over the past two-years readying the MTX archive for reissue and now all of that work has paid off. This EP was lovingly remastered by Justin Perkins specifically for vinyl--this is the first time the EP has been released on vinyl and the results are incredible. This has to be the best sounding MTX reissue that we've done.
The first pressing is limited to 600 copies (on Metallic Silver). There are 300 on 180-gram sold directly through Sounds Rad and 300 on 150-gram via stores. Not surprisingly the dibs list for the 180-gram vinyl exceeded capacity within a few hours offering the record. But there still is an opportunity to grab one of the 150-gram by joining our cadre, club, cabal of MTX fans through the Sounds Rad Dibs List. Join us. Pre-orders begin July 8th, 2020.

So come on--get happy! (Wait, that's the theme to another shirt we are working on) and check out the Mr. T Experience, "Love American Style" shirt. Share your pain and heart break with a smile.
