Cold Showers – ‘Still Life’ 7″
The beautiful, enigmatic shoegaze bliss of L.A.â€™s own Cold Showers returns to Dais with a new single. Two virgin cuts which bring their lush heartbeat back to life. The Fire, a fluid post punk anthem drenched in romantic heartbreak, crying to the masses for love. On the heels is Crowds, an acoustic, crooning diamond which shines through the daybreak. Limited to 500 copies.
Missing Foundation s/t LP
In the 1980s, New York City was a dismal wasteland filled with urban decay and creative miracles. It was only a matter of time before the suits saw an investment opportunity, with cash in hand they bought off NYC and started the criminal gentrification of downtown New York, sterilizing any sense of culture and fumigating all residents deemed financially worthless. This kind of invasion brought the perfect storm in the form of Missing Foundation. Founded by Peter Missing in the early 80â€²s, Missing Foundation and their â€œPartyâ€™s Overâ€ logo challenged the governing trends of NYC, pouring gasoline on the tinderbox of the class war taking place on the city streets. Known for their hostile and fiery performances (and infamous ban from CBGBâ€™s in the late 80â€²s), Missing Foundation left a scorched mark behind and started a movement still felt in the underground community today. Their debut album was originally released on Purge/Sound in 1987 and now Dais is honored to being reissuing this masterpiece of industrial folklore to a new generation who forgot where it started. Countless thanks to Erik Proft and Bill Cashman for all their help in making this happen. Limited to 500 copies.
Missing Foundation – ‘1933 Your House Is Mine’ LP
The cacophonic dischord of Missing Foundation and the prophetic vision of Peter Missing culminated into a follow up album following their legendary self-titled debut which was collected under the banner as 1933 Your House Is Mine. This sophomore effort was brought about in 1988 as a means to educate the forgotten and venerate their followers using brash performance tactics and industrial rhythm to rally their cause. An industrial soundtrack of urban protest, Missing Foundation found their voice, garnishing attention from the mainstream as well as being lauded by underground. The cultural divide had been marked with Missing Foundationâ€™s flipping martini glass signature declaring that the party was over. After being out of print for almost 25 years, Dais has reissued this legendary recording in a limited edition of 500 copies.
