Product Description

In The Red is proud to announce the new double-vinyl reissue of The
Intelligence’s debut album, Boredom and Terror. Originally released
on Narnack / Omnibus Records in 2004, Boredom and Terror is
the first time Lars Finberg stepped out from behind The A-Frames’
drum kit to showcase his own music. Later releases by The Intelligence
were fleshed out with additional musicians, but on this debut
album Lars was an army of one toting an eight-track recorder and a
notebook full of songs. The results are as original as they are incredible.
This is lo-fi post-punk electro garage-core, equal parts Devo,
The Fall and something altogether its own.
This new edition of Boredom and Terror has been newly remastered.
The original vinyl release contained an eleven-track bonus CD
which is included here as a second LP. Both are housed in a beautiful
gatefold sleeve.

“Lars Finberg, the lo-fi dandy of West Seattle, locked his front door
and pressed the record button on his favorite eight-track machine and
made songs that could be either ecclesiastic alien probes, Hank Williams
going electro-slash, or John Lennon making friends with a video
game.” —Insound
