Vinyl LP repressing. Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 album from the No Wave/Post Punk band including two bonus tracks. Social Climbers made sounds that were of their environs yet remarkably unique, leaving an indelible stamp on the scene while somehow managing to slither undetected out of all the history books. A downtown New York art band as much as any other, Social Climbers also claimed Midwestern roots and actual musicianship that many of their contemporaries lacked, and in trade dismissed and essentially protested the snotty pretensions that drove many others within the scene. Social Climbers are an absolute post-punk blueprint: fat bass (often two), guitar, drum machine, feverish vocals, and organ. Their lone, self-titled album is agitated and impossibly wild, yet danceable and composed.
