For Famous Class’ tenth release in their Less Artists More Condos series, the Brooklyn label has rolled something special out with the release of a 7″ from Ty Segall’s new project Fuzz. Completing the split 7″, they have chosen San Francisco sludge punkers CCR Headcleaner. The split 7″ sees Fuzz cover the Kinks’ Till The End Of The Day while CCR Headcleaner release Free The Freaks. The limited edition mustard/milky white splatter 7″ is already sold out but you can buy copies of the black vinyl directly from Famous Class here.
In loving memory of their dear friend and label partner, the late Ariel Panero, the Brooklyn-based label Famous Class started the Less Artist More Condos series of 7″s. The series gets its name from the epic Less Artists More Condos concerts that Ariel threw, showcasing amazing bands in some strange and unique venues. Ariel’s driving force was a desire to get the bands he believed in, the recognition he felt they deserved. This series simply tries to honour that idea.
For each Less Artists More Condos split 7” Famous Class asked one of their favourite bands to provide them with an unreleased track for the A-side. They were then asked to pick their favourite emerging artist to provide a track for the B-side. So far we’ve seen releases from Cass McCombs, White Magic, A Place To Bury Strangers, Ceremony, Future Islands, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Thee Oh Sees, The Mallard, Deerhoof, Half Waif, Ty Segall, Lower Dens, Xiu Xiu, Hunx and many more.
Today Famous Class welcomes three new exciting additions to their series. Like how Ariel’s Less Artists More Condos shows introduced New Yorkers to bands they might not have otherwise discovered – Famous Class hope that this series will do the same.
The digital versions of Less Artists More Condos one to ten are currently available for purchase on the FAMOUS CLASS bandcamp page with 100% of the proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music.
