The Aislers Set occupy an enviable place in the pop pantheon. Brimming with drunken romanticism, sharp pop sensibilities, and timeless melodies, The Aislers Set reveled in the history of great pop, spiking their classicist 60s-tinged tunes with pure post-punk energy and originality of bands like the Fire Engines and The June Brides.

Every song is a meticulously constructed sound world, where the arrangement and instrumentation sublimely and uncannily bring each tune to completeness.

Edgy and baroque, the band's final release "How I Learned To Write Backwards" expertly wound together countless strands of pop history with personality and atmosphere.

Using the past as inspiration rather than blueprint, the echoes you might hear of Phil Spector's Wall of Sound or Laura Nyro's soulful lyricism are so well-integrated into The Aislers' sound that they're more akin to the spice in the stew rather than the stock of the soup.

Although they stopped playing and recording together by 2004 due to life commitments, their reputation has only grown; sporadic reunion shows and mini-tours have been met with rapturous response.

Alas, Suicide Squeeze is proud to present the 2014 reissue of the seminal album "How I Learned To Write Backwards" remastered and resequenced by John Greenham at Infrasonic Sound in Los Angeles, and on vinyl LP again for the first time in over a decade.

The band will play a select set of shows this fall, and Suicide Squeeze and Slumberland Records will be teaming up to co-release a new album of singles and rarities to be released in early 2015.
