Neurot Recordings has issued additional commentary on the incoming remastered reissue of Christ On Parade’s A Mind Is A Terrible Thing, with words from Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, and Jesse Michaels of Operation Ivy, Crimpshrine, Common Rider.
Christ On Parade’s A Mind Is A Terrible Thing full-length is set to be re-released alongside Neurosis’ debut album, Pain Of Mind. Both initially released in 1987, these two albums will see a simultaneous worldwide reissue on LP, CD, and digital formats on May 25th. The artwork for A Mind Is A Terrible Thing has been updated by Ross Sewage (Impale, Exhume) and remastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering.
Pollution. It’s what we’re born into. The sight of it. The smell of it. The sound of it. The weight of it. It’s the heaviest burden to bare because it’s thrown on us and we never asked for it. It’s sensory overload. Famine, sex, television, cell phone screens, stop lights, school, church, politics, pop culture. You don’t realise it’s there until a light shines on it. That’s what you get out of music. Especially THIS music. Truth be told. When you grow up life gets serious and it sucks. You just try not to let pollution suck the life out of you. Christ On Parade are the gnarly truth to all this pollution. A bunch of kids just calling it as they see it. Or smell it? It’s sounds like the old Oakland Bay Bridge. Ugly and beautiful. Disturbing and familiar. It’s almost weird to call it punk because it bares so much soul. Thank god for Christ On Parade — Billie Joe Armstrong
