40th Anniversary Limited Edition 180g 3LP Box Set!
Remastered & Expanded with Unreleased Demos, Live Tracks & More!
Includes Bonus 7" Single of "Ugly" b/w "Gimme the Car"!

Expanded 40th anniversary Deluxe Edition of Violent Femmes' self-titled debut featuring the remastered album, plus B-sides, live sessions, and rare demos. Housed in a lift-top box with die-cut darkened window detail revealing the box contents, the set includes three 180-gram LPs plus a replica 7" single, along with a book featuring new liner notes by journalist David Fricke and interviews with the band. Includes the classic anthems "Blister in the Sun," "Please Do Not Go," "Gone Daddy Gone," and "Add It Up."

One of the most distinctive records of the early alternative movement and an enduring cult classic, Violent Femmes weds the geeky, child-man persona of Jonathan Richman and the tense, jittery, hyperactive feel of new wave in an unlikely context: raw, amateurish acoustic folk-rock... powered by Brian Ritchie's busy acoustic bass riffing and the urgency and wild abandon of punk rock, the Femmes forged a sound all their own.
-Steve Huey, AllMusic, 5/5
