Fuzz Club announce deluxe reissue of Dead Rabbits debut album ‘The Ticket that Exploded’, out February 26th



Independent record label Fuzz Club have announced the repress of Dead Rabbits’ stunning debut album ‘The Ticket That Exploded’, originally released in 2013.

Through phaser-heavy production, storming drums and warped keys, ‘The Ticket That Exploded’ captures the bleak reality of growing up in modern Britain. It’s a record that captures a time and a place, portraying brute honesty and melancholy through a talent for songwriting that many artists chase. Fuzzed-up chords ring out seemingly at their own leisure and organs drone on beneath them as frontman Tom Hayes’ frustration and despair pierces through.


Dead Rabbits were one of the earlier Fuzz Club signings and took the closing spot of the first Reverb Conspiracy compilation, where the mantra-like lyric “It’s only just begun” seemed the perfect summary of both Fuzz Club and Dead Rabbits at the time.

The Dead Rabbits sound takes the Brian Jonestown Massacre-inspired psychedelic rock sonic aesthetic and crashes it head on withLou Reed’s simplistic guitar work and Jason Peirce’s absurd yet painfully human poetry.

The album’s centrepiece, ‘It’s All in Her Head’, has never lost its place in the band’s live set, and with good reason. It stretches its way across uncontained six minutes with a hypnotically repetitious organ melody crafted by keyboardist Paul Seymour, and Link Wray-influenced raw guitars, which create a surreal backdrop to Hayes’ despairing vocals.




‘The Ticket that Exploded’ is available for pre-order on vinyl in standard and deluxe edition. Standard edition (500 copies) is 180g heavy black vinyl, and deluxe edition (100 copies) is 180g transparent red vinyl with gatefold cover, embossed logo on the back cover, hand numbering and a printed inner sleeve featuring an illustration of the band by The Underground Youth’s Olya Dyer. Deluxe editions are available exclusively in the Fuzz Club online store. Also available on CD and cassette.


Based in East London, Fuzz Club has gained a reputation for surfacing the best emerging talent from Europe and beyond, and releasing them on high quality, limited edition vinyl pressings, alongside a roster of the best known names in the underground scene including The Black Angels, Alan Vega, Dead Skeletons, A Place to Bury Strangers, The Telescopes, Singapore Sling, The Underground Youth and Sonic Jesus.
