Strange Attractors is pleased to announce two new reissues in its irregular Resurrection Series of lost gems – the first two albums by Seattle's premier instrumental rockers Kinski!Originally self-released by the band in 1999 in a limited edition pressing, Kinski's debut album SpaceLaunch for Frenchie captures the group in their infancy. Exploring multiple sonic terrains, the album clearly illustrates Kinski's skillful melding of their love of pop with their love of the drone. Initially a three-piece, the band recorded their debut in their rehearsal space on an Otari 8-track. SpaceLaunch for Frenchie contains some of the bands' favorite early tracks, namely "Staring" and "Jetstream," as well as a cover of the Spacemen 3 tune "Losing Touch with My Mind." Remastered and repackaged, this reissue includes Kinski's ultra-rare four song demo unearthed from the period, featuring two never-before heard songs as well as an early version of a number re-recorded for Be Gentle with the Warm Turtle and the outtake "She Always Made Us Work Like Dogs." Unavailable for years, SpaceLaunch for Frenchie is an auspicious starting point and a complete departure from their later flights of fancy. Said Magnet upon it's release, "SpaceLaunch for Frenchie serves up one of the coolest Krautrockin' dronefests this side of the second Spacemen 3 album."Kinski's long-lost debut SpaceLaunch for Frenchie was a private pressing sold at early shows via limited distribution – finally reissued and available for wider consumption!
