The story of Grex Valium began several years ago – in 2010, when a Los Angeles based micro-label, 5 Records, agreed to release the album. However, due to various problems (both administrative and ontological), its progress was sadistically stymied. But now Owl Plates have stepped up to the, erm, plate – and Grex Valium can be held back no longer!
Neither as wayward as 2013's Viva Les Untermensch, nor as aha ahem “commercial” as Genuine Borneo Sphinx, Grex Valium compiles various ditties and rackets recorded between 2003 - 2004. True to form there is a range of fidelity levels – spanning none to some. Suffice to say this is an album worthy of the listener's warm embrace, an album to hold dear to the heart on long, lonely nights. Plus each copy comes with a free gift – more specifically, a partially hand-rendered objet d'art fashioned entirely from natural materials.
It would not be too much of an exaggeration to suggest that this gesture of kindness shames other bands, revealing them for the careerist bourgeois stench-lords they so evidently are. We thus ask you – when was the last time you made a music-related purchase that included a such wonderful present? Be honest – it was a long time ago wasn't it? That is a rhetorical question. We know fine well it was, and we won't hear another word on the matter. So please – do not embarrass yourself by prevaricating. Don't attempt to ensnare us in yet another one of your interminable and no less deceitful yarns. Let the light of truth flood through the raggedy holes in your parchment-thin soul, for your lies no longer hold sway over us. The power of Full Crumb compels you!!
