NEGATIVLAND: These Guys are From England and Who Gives a Shit



Seelard Records 021 (not a Seeland release)
CD and lawsuit only

Negativmailorderland has discovered what can only be described as the ultimate "reissue" of some music that made Negativland rather (in)famous: the two track EP originally released by SST Records featuring cover versions of a Very Famous Irish Rock Band’s hit song. If you’ve gotten this far you undoubtedly know what we’re talking about, so we won’t bore you with the details.

Several "bootleg" versions of our banned single have appeared over the years since it was sued out of existence, including some forgeries for sale on Ebay that are so well-designed that it’s hard to tell them apart from the original, but none of them have come close to encapsulating the bloody history of that old release as this CD, released on the suspicious sounding "Seelard Records" label. We don’t know where this so-called "label" is actually located, but we were so impressed with the extreme high-fidelity and professional presentation of this material that we decided to distribute a bunch of copies of it ourselves.

“These Guys Are From England And Who Gives A Shit” arrived at our warehouses on the tenth anniversary of the original lawsuit, and it’s an album-length collection of just about every darn musical gasp, sonic squelch, and audio twitter made by Negativland which relates to the notorious and banned “U2” single. From early run-throughs of the material (taped from our weekly radio show, Over The Edge), to live versions both pre-lawsuit and post, and to the actual single itself, we are convinced that this overly attentive-to-detail release will exhaust your interest in this subject forever and provide the Negativ-fan with some top-notch legally impossible entertainment, all at the same time. Also includes the only top-notch stereo recordings available from our "Music For Lawyers" tour of 1993 (several lawsuit-related compositions which never saw the light of day on any other legitimate Negativland album.)
