Thrill Jockey will be reissuing the seminal post-rock band’s first two releases as part of the celebrations on April 21.

The two singles were initially released in 1993 – ‘Lonesome Sound’ [artwork pictured] on Thrill Jockey, ‘Mosquito’ on David Sims’ (of The Jesus Lizard) Torsion Music label – and haven’t been available for some time. They feature the band’s original line-up of Douglas McCombs, John Herndon, Bundy K. Brown, John McEntire and Brad Wood.

The singles have been recut to 7” by Bob Weston of Shellac. They feature the original fold-over artwork and, in a nifty twist, the two sleeves can be put together to form a four-panel poster.

The full tracklisting for the two singles is as follows:

Lonesome Sound 7″

1. ‘Lonesome Sound’
2. ‘Reservoir’
3. ‘Sheets’

Mosquito 7″

1. ‘Mosquito’
2. ‘Gooseneck’
