X-Ray Charles are pleased to announce the release of the first decent thing they’ve released, really – a self-titled EP named Selph Titled. It is six tracks long, which includes four originals, a cover of Spare Snare’s As A Matter Of Fact, and another track that is really just the solo of the first song slowed down a bit.
Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand, X-Ray Charles are a two-piece who like shitty puns, Flying Nun records, recording things on Tascam Portastudios, and not really sounding that good. Brian Feary (who also plays in Shacklock Meth Party and The Dance Asthmatics) plays guitar and sings, and “Stoned” Jay Sullivan (Bang Bang Eche/Salad Boys) plays drums.
Selph Titled took three goes to record on a 4-track before it sounded right and eight months later it is now available for pay-as-you-like download on Bandcamp. Melted Ice Cream, a record label run by our buddy Joe, are putting the record out in some shape or form, probably.
Having recently completed a NZ-wide tour in support of Melted Ice Cream’s Sickest Smashes From Arson City compilation, X-Ray Charles will be embarking on another tour pretty soon, with details to be announced via their facebook page, as below.
