Outrageous Cherry - Self Titled Vinyl LP
It's a great pleasure that our first release is the 1994 debut record from Detroit indie-pop/garage/psych legends Outrageous Cherry. The husband part of the husband and wife duo that is Microfiche Records grew up in Detroit and rarely missed an Outrageous Cherry show. As an avid vinyl collector and big Outrageous Cherry fan he needed to fill that hole in his collection and we're very happy to say that we have... with enough to spare for you!
We've pressed up 300 12'' records on clear vinyl with a white swirl, and they look and sound fantastic. The artwork comes from the CD reissue of this record that came out in 2008 via Scratch Records. The first 100 of this record that were pressed were made with hand cut holes in the labels basically showing the vinyl color on the screen of the Microfiche reader that is our logo.
We'd like to say that limiting these labels to only 100 was our idea but we eventually learned that the record presses didn't like the labels that much so we gave up after 100 and switched to the same label without the screen cut out. Speaking of presses, below are three videos featuring music from the record documenting the process ...from the lacquers getting cut to the final records being pressed!

The band is still very active and very prolific, releasing great vinyl via the Alive Records label and touring regularly. The cast changes here and there from album to album but it's always a great cast. Matthew Smith (vocals, guitar, piano) and Larry Ray (lead guitar) are the constants, Chad Gilchrist (bass, backup vocals) and Suzanna Mroz (drums, backup vocals) were the other half of OC for this debut LP. Below is a look at their discography and tour dates.
