The second in a series of Dead C reissue collaborations between Jagjaguwar and Ba Da Bing, Eusa Kills has been pressed on vinyl for the first time in years, along with the Helen Said This 12-inch as a bonus record. Eusa Kills is The Dead C's second album from 1989, released by Flying Nun, the arbiter of the time for all that mattered in New Zealand rock. Considered by many to be their songs record, Eusa Kills adds ominous aggression to the abstract sounds of their time-- those being created by such luminaries as Dustdevils, This Kind of Punishment, and Dadamah. Sneering vocals drift over improvised melodies and unstructured rock songs. One can hear the direct influence The Dead C had on Sonic Youth at the time-- mining deep into the underbelly of music to yield a truly intense and unparalleled sound. This reissue also contains as a bonus record the rare Helen Said This 12-inch from the same recording period. Originally released by Siltbreeze at 33 rpm, this is the first vinyl reprint, and will display improved sound quality at 45 rpm.
