An Endless Boogie, Onward Into Oblivion

Through a wonderful stroke of luck, I have come upon two beautifully rare discs from a fantastic band.

Endless Boogie is a band out of NYC who Pitchfork took notice of when they released their first major disc in 2008.

They accurately summed up the band’s formula in a few words:

The concept that guides Endless Boogie is a relatively simple one: Take the moment at which any good blues-rock jam crests– the four bars of transcendent face-scrunching and pull-off-laden glory– then extend that moment onward into oblivion.

The discs I’ve come upon are legendary in collector’s circles.  The band quietly released two albums in 2005 – Volume 1 and Volume 2.  The first was limited to 500 copies, and word is that 50 of them have been rendered “less-desirable.”  Volume 2 was limited to 299 copies, though my copy is mysteriously hand-numbered 90/’150.

Both of the albums and their jackets are NM with their respective inserts.  They sound absolutely amazing.  The opening track of Volume 1 is a 24 minute epic anthem.  The closest I could come to a sample for your enjoyment is the first track of Volume 2, courtesy of youtube.

And here’s a slow, bluesy cut from one of their CDs – “Slow Creep.”

Pitchfork went on to describe them as a cross between Captain Beefheart and Dr. Teeth… which couldn’t have made me happier!

As much as I’d love to keep them for my own collection, I’ve decided to offer them as a set and have just posted them as the lowest-priced copies available on Discogs.com.
