In somewhat related news, Merge is reissuing a remastered version of Superchunk's 1994 album Foolish (which was produced by Brian Paulson at Steve Albini's home studio in Chicago), "some different album art, special bonus material, and extensive liner notes by drummer Jon Wurster" included. Preorder it now at Merge Records. The band previously reissued/remastered No Pocky For Kitty, On The Mouth, and most recently, Here's Where The Strings Come In. All are available at the Merge store.

Foolish is *not* Superchunk's debut. It is probably their 4th or 5th record, depending on whether or not you count Tossing Seeds.

guys... foolish is not superchunk's 1st album nor was it recorded by albini.

Also Steve Albini never gets credited as a "producer." He is pretty against that. He recorded that album.

Also Foolish was produced by Brian Paulson.

Maybe if you could spend 10 minutes not turning this website into a haven of sponsored awfulness you would could get really rudimentary facts straight about a really popular band.

It's pretty obvious to anyone who's heard even one song from "Foolish" that Albini had nothing to do with it. It's also pretty obvious to anyone who's heard even one song from "No Pocky for Kitty" that Albini DID, in fact, record it, but isn't credited on the album. Neither of these records were Superchunk's debut. "No Pocky for Kitty" was their second LP. Who could screw that up?

Let's all pretend to care about Shellac to up our hipster cred.

Superchunk factual errors fixed. sorry and thanks. :(

P.S. It was supposed to say "Merge debut", not debut. (or Merge full length debut).

Donna I'd love it if you would clean my carpets. Is it OK that I'm not in the UK?

No thanks, I'll pass.

Shellac attracts music geeks & aging gen x'rs - not hipsters but both groups that (also) show up in bv comments.

Snark attempt FAIL - now fuck off back to wherever you're from.
