The Stalin

Fish Inn

Label: P-Vine Records

Format: LP

Genre: Noise

Preorder: Due on late March, 2024


The album called "Fish Inn" was originally released in 1984. The leader of the band Michiro Endo anticipated departing from punk rock and created this work, exploring a sound inclined towards psychedelic music, a challenging move that seemed to self-denounce The Stalin's previous style. Higo Hiroshi from Friction was also involved in the band as bassist during this recording. Endo reminisced later about the album as: "More specifically, the main theme was how to kill The Stalin." Following this release, The Stalin disbanded and marked it as their final album.

Although the remix version produced by Bill Laswell released in 1986 is generally more highly regarded, P-VINE focuses on the original version and reissues it on vinyl with the original artwork for the first time.
