OKAY, YOU AXED FOR IT!!!
Out for the first time on vinyl in nearly 25 years, the Mentors' "You Axed For It!" is ready to "shock and gross" the world all over again. Stool Sample Records has created an exact replica of the 1985 classic and have pressed a very limited edition of 500 on vivid pink "beef curtain" vinyl. Included in the package is a bonus 7" with two never-before-heard tracks from the infamous trio, including "Animal", a song written about a particular roadie who was notorious for showing up late to gigs.
With the likes of the late, great Frank Zappa, the Mentors are largely responsible for the "Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics" label we've all become so accustomed to. With such classic rockers as "Herpes 2," "Free Fix," and "Clap Queen", who can blame Tipper Gore for her outrage. If you are not Tipper — you're going to love it!
Stool Sample Records was launched by Stuart Leonard Sample in 2008. Stu is an avid record collector who grew up during the punk explosion of the late 70's and early 80's. His influences are the Ramones, the Stooges, the Mentors, the White Stripes, and Ween, to name a few.
Stu considers music to be a work of art that should be appreciated both auditorially as well as visually. In other words, the music recorded is a work of art.
