While actually from Wichita, The Embarrassment is no less influential to many punk bands to come out of this region in the last 25 years. The band announced via their surprisingly up to date Facebook page late last month that their debut 7 inch will be re-issued very soon through Last Laugh Records, an American label that specializes in re-issues of old punk EPs. The label has previously re-issued The Eat’s “Communist Radio” and The Zeros’ “Main Street Brat.”
This alone is great news, but to find out it is being pressed from the original masters makes the deal even sweeter. Now even the cheapest bastard (read: me) can get his hands on a vinyl copy of the original “Sex Drive” (the shorter version from 1990’s God Help Us is great as well) with the original b-side of “Patio Set” to boot. Check out the video below to hear what you are in store for.
