THE INSOMNIACS: (1995) Wake Up! (@) vbr

Forming in 1989 after the breakup of their previous band The Tea Club, The Insomniacs rehearsed and played several local showcases before releasing their debut 7","My Favorite Story" on Umbrella Records in 1991. Based on the favorable reviews worldwide and the overall reception that the 7" received, the Insomniacs headed back in the studio and released a follow-up 7","Time Ticks By" (also on Umbrella) in the Fall of 1992.
On the strength of their first 2 singles, Outer Limits Records in Berlin approached the band about recording a single as the label's premier release. Soon thereafter, Estrus Records (who were distributing the Umbrella and Outer Limits records), released a 6 song self-titled 10" EP (commonly known as 'the ghoul record'). In early 1994, the band traveled to Europe to commence a mini-tour of Germany and Amsterdam to promote the singles and 10". 1994 came to a close with Outer Limits rush-releasing the "Sylvia Gray" EP and an appearance in Athens, GA at the Beefstock extravaganza.
It's time to scrape the crap outta yer lobes and "Wake-Up!" to the buzz-pop bliss of The Insomniacs! Armed with the knowledge that most folks missed out on these cat's ultra-cool but near impossible to find singles the first time around, the big cheeses at Estrus have decided to round-up The Insomniacs Umbrella 7"s, Outer Limits EP and the Estrus 10" onto one tiny space-age disk for your audio edification. A twelve-song garage-pop treat guaranteed to have you up offa the couch and doin' the Back Break Shake pronto Tonto! So, Wake-Up!" and smell the real sounds of the Garden State courtesy of The Insomniacs!
