SPOOKEY RUBEN

Canadian avant-pop legend Spookey Ruben personally may or may not fully realize the cultural significance of his debut LP, 1995’s Modes Of Transportation, Vol. 1. But if you go ahead and ask artists ranging from Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) to fellow-Canadian songstress/Kanye collaborator, Esthero (a fan since her childhood), or even listen deeply to contemporary artists like Ariel PinkDirty Beaches and Toro Y Moi his influence is undeniable on the music world.
The fact that it’s been twenty years since this record was released on the ill-fated TVT label (Nine Inch Nails, Brian Jonestown Massacre) is mind-blowing since Ruben’s debut could have been released in 2015 or 1985 for that matter. This re-issue serves as a landmark holiday which includes the full remastered album, plus a slew of bonus tracks, remixes and unreleased material dating from 1995 and 1996 will see the light of day on December 15th, 2015. This classic album is a morning bell and shining foreshadow to a brand new LP by Spookey slated for Spring 2016 which is rumored to feature collaborations with EstheroGeneva Jacuzzi and more to be announced.
