Legendary cult LP gets a second lease on life: King Tuff’s ‘Was Dead’

Myles Herod June 5, 2013

Weilding tasty guitar solos and irresistible hooks, Kyle Thomas (a.k.a King Tuff) sounds like the ultimate garage rocker. And that’s before he signed to Sub Pop Records. 
Initially released in 2008, ‘Was Dead’ is the once out-of-print debut from Thomas; at one time a highly collectable item (fetching double digits on-line). Now resurrected for our listening pleasure, you can dig the lo-fi, sexually charged tunes that brought this obscurity back-to-life.    
Recommended for fans of Glam rock, The Clash, Wavves, and Dinosaur Jr.
