Melbourne’s Black Cab have announced the long awaited limited edition vinyl reissue of debut album, Altamont Diary will be released Friday 6 December via Interstate40. The release will celebrate 15 years since its original Australian release in 2004 and the 50th anniversary of the disastrous Rolling Stones concert at the Altamont Speedway, California on December 6th 1969.
Black Cab won critical acclaim worldwide for their weird rock-meets-electronica take on the death of the Summer of Love and the chao and violence that was Altamont. Long out of print, the limited edition vinyl reissue has been fully remastered with new artwork.
Black Cab will play a one-off live performance of Altamont Diary at Howler on Thurs 5th Dec with an all star live band featuring Matt Walker (Lost Ragas), Mat Watson (Taipan Tiger Girls), Ev Tweedy (Dub FX), and Steve Law (Zen Paradox), with support from Hugo Race’s Gemini 4. Tickets selling fast.
