We just got a hold of a case of these custom CDs. Produced in Japan, in 2008, in a limited run of 1000. These were thought long gone – but no! In addition to the CD and booklet, this one-inch thick clamshell package contains a 15" x 19" "Freak Flag", screen printed in flourescent inks on fabric! This comes neatly folded in a glassine envelope inside the case (thus it's need to be an inch thick). Suitable for framing? Ironed and mounted – YES!
Here's Gary's blogpost when it was released:
Overheat Communications in Tokyo originally issued Gary’s LP in 1983. Now Overheat has just rereleased Pray For Smurph on CD with booklet and special collector’s FREAK FLAG! The music is irreverent, psychedelic, swampy and a little country. Gary plays guitar and yelps and is accompanied by Ian McLagan, the Residents, Phil Culp, KK, Joe Berardi and many other fine musicians and audio technicians.
We put up a gallery of this item on Instagram, HERE.
