Before the dB's and Let's Active, there was Sneakers! Chris Stamey and Mitch Easter first began to explore recording techniques in Winston-Salem, NC during their youth. In 1976, Chris and his band Sneakersreleased an EP on Stamey's own Carnivorous Records (later to morph into Car Records and release Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos"). The sessions were engineered by Don Dixon. the Sneakers EP--one of just a handful of self-released records that created the template for the modern indie avalanche--remains vital. Omnivore Recordings is proud to reissue this seminal 7" EP as an expanded 10" clear vinyl Ep. Sneakers' six original tracks are joined by three more tracks, including a previously unissued cover of The Grass Roots' "Let's Live For Today".
SIDE ONE "Ruby", "Condition Red", "Driving", "Love's Like A Cuban Crisis", "On The Brink" SIDE TWO "Let's Live For Today", "Story of a Girl", "Nonsequitur", "S'il Vous Plait"
