NOTES:
Vinyl edition of the Cobra Killer album featuring Jon Spencer on Good Time Girl and Schneeball In Die Fresse. Also issued on CD and as a promo CD in card sleeve.

PRESS INFORMATION:
“Cobra Killer are Gina V. Dorio and Annika Line Trost. Both have played in bands in the former West Berlin since the age of 12/13. They formed Cobra Killer in January 1998, touring through Europe and revolutionising the then boring electronic music scene with their raucous show.
Uppers & Downers, their 5th full length studio album, sees Cobra Killer on fine form and sounding as defiant and unpredicatable as ever. Recorded in part at Einsturzende Neubaten’s “Andere Baustelle” studio in Berlin, and featuring appearances by such special guests as J. Mascis, Thurston Moore and Jon Spencer, the record is and a roller-coaster ride that sees the band pushing the limits and again going way beyond expectations to deliver an album thats sure to please their many fans, especially when they take to the road to present the songs in their unmistakeably energetic live show.”
