Boyracer - In Full Colour CD



Ah, redemption songs. I bought and rashly sold this Boyracer CD back in the day, then rebought a copy of it last year at Calgary's Hot Wax Records for $7.95, as the perspicacious can deign. A bargain. Some critics panned this full-length for being overly long and/or for petering out at the mid-way point, but with 21 tracks in 43 minutes you can afford to job the skip/delete button at will and still have time for tea before toast. As was Boyracer's forte, the ratio of catchy indie-rock winners to losers on this 1996 Zero Hour release seems quite high to me.

Yeah, I could never figure out why this release (and Boyracer in general) didn't get its due-- almost everything Boyracer is pretty ace, as far as I'm concerned...

I had to do a doubletake when I saw the Hotwax sticker - it's a neat store. Not my favourite Calgary record shop, but there's always something cool lurking around there...

1992-1996 spent trolling the aisles of the Record Store, Megatunes, Hot Wax, Sloth, Melodiya and Recordland might explain why our collections are so similar.

I found this Boyracer album about a month ago, and paid just $2 for it. I was really surprised to find it, and equally glad I bought it when I brought it home.

As far as I'm concerned, the "We are Made of the Same Wood" album as faaaar superior.

Hi! This is Jen from the post-2000 version of Boyracer. Just wanted to let you know that we've made a www.boyracer.bandcamp.com site where we are putting up old, rare and new things, some for free (like the 1994 Peel Sessions) and some for cheap. We can't really afford to keep pressing vinyl no one buys so we're trying this out for a change. If you're interested, please check it out! Love, Jen Racer
