Fantastic collection of outtakes and alternate versions of Lost Sounds tracks, from the surprisingly poppy and garage rock ("Frankenstein Twist," "No Count") to heavier, darker metallic sounds ("Look At Me," "Total Destruction")
With random noises strewn between!
Really, a great look at the dynamic and the songwriting of Jay Reatard and Alicja Trout, with elements of each's previous musical outings and where they were headed as well.
The more I listen to this the more I realize just how great this band was. Fighting, not fighting, whatever... they were INTENSE and really constantly working on their sound and songs.

Featuring early and alternate versions from Jay Reatard
and Alicja Trout’s epic garage / electro-punk band Lost
Sounds, Lost Lost collects songs off the Black Wave and
Rats Brains and Microchips albums and their final selftitled
EP, as well as ones that never saw proper release.
The rare and unheard material ranges from captivating
kitchen recordings and acoustic takes to fully realized studio
Covers of garage obscurities like “I Cannot Lie” and
originals like “No Count” betray the garage rock sensibilities
that Reatard was still shedding during the earlier years
of the band, while later recordings show the electropunk
and black metal influences that crept into their sound.
A great collection from a great band and a couple of great
songwriters—maestros of tension without release—Lost
Lost will appeal to everyone from garage and punk fanatics
to Numanoids and metalheads.
