File Under: Noisy Pop/Anti Folk First time on vinyl! "The best New York record you've never heard"! Had it not been for bad timing, mental illness, rampant drug abuse, and a penchant for burning bridges, Charles Douglas might be thought of today as a songwriter on par with Stephen Malkmus, Beck, Daniel Johnston, Robert Pollard, and other members of the indie-rock aristocracy! Playing all the instruments himself, recording in the basement of his parents' house in Allentown, Pennsylvania, his songs range from gleeful stoner anthems to deranged anti-folk to noisy pop to lo fi bubblegum.

Five years after the reissue of « The lives of Charles Douglas » (featuring Maureen Tucker on drums!) and along with this summer release of an expanded 2 CD version of his « Statecraft » album, this first time on vinyl reissue should mark the world rediscovery of Charles Douglas' genius!
