Drop Nineteens Delaware Vinyl Album

Coloured Vinyl LP



Pre Order 21st June


 On the eve of Drop Nineteens’ first live performances in 30 years, Wharf Cat Records are excited to present the reissue of the band’s shoegaze masterpiece, ‘Delaware’.

 ‘Delaware’ is the debut studio album by American band Drop Nineteens, originally released on June 19, 1992. Despite the album’s release over 30 years ago, and the band remaining inactive from 1993 onwards, this album has remained a favourite of shoegaze fans for decades and was listed as one of The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums Of All Time by Pitchfork in 2016. This lasting love of the record has cemented Drop Nineteens as one of the most influential bands of the genre from their time.

 Over the last several years the album has found a new audience that has championed ‘Delaware’ alongside the band’s mostly UK 1990s contemporaries. A new legion of Drop Nineteens fans have likely discovered their music through streaming services, rather than on 120 Minutes.  Tracks like the towering ‘Kick The Tragedy’ and pop songs ‘Winona’ and ‘Delaware’ sit next to more experimental moments like ‘Reberrymemberer’. And while the album is certainly a wild ride, it all flows together as easily as singers Greg Ackell and Paula Kelley’s vocals.

 Now, for the first time, this record will be available on yellow coloured vinyl, remastered by Carl Saff.

 “Their debut album, ‘Delaware’, is one of the great American shoegaze records of the scene’s original era” - Brooklyn Vegan

 “It’s magnificent, a welcome return from a band that could so easily have been lost to the sands of time.” - Stereogum
