Originally released by Guest Room Records in 2010, we are proud to have pressed this newly-cut re-pressing of the record Believers In Medicine by Rainbows Are Free.
A dark mix of seventies British metal and the modern occult, Rainbows Are Free have summoned forces that instantly bring to mind the heaviest music from contemporaries with whom they’ve shared the stage (The Black Angels, Dead Meadow, Black Mountain, Lions, The Sword, The Strange Boys) and recall their dark roots from being lifetime fans of classic stoner metal and glam rock (Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Queen).
We are really pumped that Guest Room Records picked us to press the very first Shitty/Awesome full-length album! This self-titled debut was recorded live in middle of last winter with Chris Harris at Hook Echo Sound. It features artwork from nationally renowned artist, Derek Erdman, as well as 13 tracks of the same outrageous, raucous post-punk this quartet spews out at their live shows. Catch their video for ‘Hang Up’ , and if you are anywhere near Oklahoma this weekend, be sure to hit up the joint Broncho & Shitty Awesome release party August 20 at Guest Room Records in Norman!

Harkening back to punk rock’s glory days of the 70s, Oklahoma outfit BRONCHO captures the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drags it by the hair into the Here and Now, creating a fresh sound that’s unlike anything being played today. With echoes of The Replacements, Iggy and the Stooges and The Ramones, BRONCHO’s exuberant ten song debut Can’t Get Past the Lips is a blisteringly cathartic 20 minute flash of gritty, crunching guitar work supported by an assaultive rhythm section and made whole by songwriter Ryan Lindsey’s aggressive, yelping vocal work.
Released in conjunction with Oklahoma-based record label (and killer record stores) Guest Room Records, Broncho’s latest LP, Can’t Get Past The Lips, will be available on wax on August 20 at the exclusive Guest Room Records Broncho/Shitty Awesome Release Party (and available everywhere after that)!
A limited number of records were pressed on pink wax
