Polyvinyl to Release Pele Rarities Compilation
From Polyvinyl's press release:
Polyvinyl Record Co. is pleased to announce the release of Pele A Scuttled Bender in a Watery Closet on April 7, 2009.
For over a decade, Pele has been an influential staple in the indie/experimental world and has released material that has sculpted multiple genres. A Scuttled Bender in a Watery Closet is a collection of 7 years, 13 releases, and the insanity that Pele came to be known for. Since Pele's demise in 2004, the core members have gone on to play in Collections of Colonies of Bees and have left behind a significant amount of unheard material. A Scuttled Bender in a Watery Closet collects that work and presents it in a way all Pele fans will enjoy.
This collection was a year in the making and includes over 2 hours of previously hard-to-find music from 9 different labels in the U.S. and Japan. It also contains a 24-page full color booklet with a complete comprehensive band chronology. This release is limited to 2000 copies.
In addition to A Scuttled Bender in a Watery Closet, Polyvinyl has released two of Pele's classic albums in Teaching the History of Teaching Geography and People Living with Animals. Animals Kill People which now are available digitally for the first time ever.
