Rodriguez gets reissued on cassette

Posted By on Mon, May 12, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Rodriguez, Detroit's blast from the past musical success story, is getting re-released on a format that's also a blast from the past: the cassette. Burger Records (who have made a name for themselves for revitalizing the novelty format in the garage-punk world) are teaming up with Light In The Attic records (credited for reviving Rodriguez's career by reissuing Cold Fact in 2008) to release both Rodriguez albums on cassette tomorrow, May 13. It's the first in a weekly release schedule which also features both news and old-school artists like the Black Angels, Roky Erickson, Built to Spill and more.
