2013 repress. "This is the second release on Light In The Attic Records' new imprint Modern Classics Recordings. 'Low-rock' and 'fuck-rock' are two descriptors enigmatic Morphine front man Mark Sandman used to describe his band's beat-inspired blues-jazz-rock holy racket. Along with Sandman's baritone vocal delivery and oddball two-string bass styling, co-founder Dana Colley played a saxophone as his lead instrument of choice instead of the expected guitar, creating a quirky and burning sensibility. Original drummer Jerome Deupree, who was replaced by percussionist Billy Conway during the recording of 1993's Cure For Pain, flushed out the unorthodox trio. Hailed by the alternative college-rock community in the mid-1990s after motion picture soundtrack placements in Spanking the Monkey and the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-head, such commercial endorsements did little to distract from Cure For Pain's deep soul. Released on vinyl as the second title in Light In The Attic's Modern Classics series, following a reissue of Mercury Rev's seminal Deserter's Songs (MCR 900LP), we're happy to make this album accessible to music lovers the world over." First-ever US vinyl issue. Audio lovingly remastered for 180-gram wax. 180-gram LP housed in expanded gatefold jacket with four page insert featuring interviews with surviving band members.
