September 24 street date. Beggars Arkive release a limited edition red splattered vinyl reissue of Silverfish's first full-length album, "Fat Axl", originally released in 1990 by Beggars label Wiiija. Recorded in Sheffield by Steve Albini in just two days, the album's nine songs are unrestrained and uncommercial. It's been remastered yet still retains the raw "lurch" appeal of the mighty Silverfish. Led by powerhouse vocalist Lesley Rankine (a pioneering, outspoken feminist who popularized the slogan "Hips, Tits, Lips, Power"), Silverfish formed in 1988 and were key to the Camden "lurch" scene; grunge before it was "grunge". Not long after their formation, Silverfish gathered a huge following due to their unique sound, which had nods to AC/DC, Dolly Parton, Russ Meyer, and the Birthday Party. Their uncompromising sound was in stark contrast to the gentler more commercial sound of other UK bands. Silverfish's sound owed more to metal, hardcore punk and the industrial sounds of Ministry.
