Notes

All songs recorded live at Death By Audio during the last month of programming, November 2014.

For nearly a decade, Death by Audio was a recording studio, an effect pedal workshop, a music venue, and a home to musicians and artists. Oliver Ackermann (A Place to Bury Strangers) found the warehouse in 2005 and along with fellow artists in Dirty on Purpose, he started hosting concerts to help pay to build out bedrooms and studios. By 2007 DBA was hosting bands almost every night. Over 1,800 shows later, DBA announced its impending eviction with an epic final month of programming. Start Your Own Fucking Show Space tracks the last days of DBA in November 2014, a sweaty, bittersweet homecoming for many artists who began their career there.

Presented in chronological running order, Start Your Own Fucking Show Space features live recordings from 26 bands over the venue’s final month. The LP set is housed in a double gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves listing every one of the 1,800+ shows in the venue’s history. There is a limited pressing of the compilation on clear with opaque blue & red vinyl, available while supplies last.

Limited to 1000.

This is a beautiful package and a lot of these recordings benefit from the "vinyl experience". The liner notes are a list of every DBA concert from day 1 until its death by Vice. The LPs are nearly clear with wispy opaque color fibers here and there. The vinyl had minimal surface noise and just wasn't noticeably full of ticks and pops. I saw the film, "Death by Audio" and thought it was great. It told the story and made me appreciate how important this musical/DIY/Artist venue was for so long in Brooklyn. You can feel that vibe in a lot of the tracks on this collection. A close connection between the bands and the audience in that space. If you like any of these bands already, this is really worth having.
