Special Thrill Jockey Releases in Celebration of 15 Years

This year marks fifteen years of Thrill Jockey Records and to celebrate they are throwing two days of shows at Koko in London with a massive lineup of Thrill Jockey’s stable of artists including Tortoise, The Sea and Cake, Trans Am, Califone and others. These shows are November 11th and 12th. Tortoise headlines the second night.

For those fortunate enough to see this amazing set of shows, they will also get an exclusive CD to mark the occasion. This CD consists of remixes made from the Thrill Jockey catalog by Girl Talk and Trey Told ‘Em! Unfortunately at this time the only way to get this CD will be if you purchase tickets for the show. I guess I’ll have to watch eBay for my copy…

In addition to the show and the remix CD, Thrill Jockey will be releasing catalog number Thrill 200– a box set of eight 180g 7″ records with Thrill Jockey artists covering songs by other Thrill Jockey artists! This will be a limited edition so don’t sleep on this! Some covers include Tortoise covering Nobukazu Takemura, The Sea and Cake covering Califone, and the Fiery Furnaces covered by David Byrne.
