Under The Western Freeway


RELEASED: 20th October 2017
Double Yellow/Blue Vinyl

Friendship Fever worked closely with Jason Lytle of Grandaddy to give this seminal album the deluxe treatment it deserves. It will include the beautifully re-mastered original album intact, as well as an extra LP featuring unreleased demos from 1997 that include sketches of songs that became legendary Grandaddy tracks, like “Bjork ELO Xanadu and the Birth of Chartsengrafs” and the fan-favorite “For The Dishwasher.” Grandaddy was meticulous about documenting their early years and has also provided folders of raw original artwork elements for Under the Western Freeway, candid photographs, original flyer artwork, tour logs, doodles, and much more. New liner notes will be written by Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals. Our hope is that this release serves as an unparalleled time-capsule of this seminal Central-Valley California masterpiece. Ahead of its time, sitting peacefully alone in the universe.
