2019: "Big Stick are chuffed to announce that their new Drag Racing Underground record label, in conjunction with Forte Music Distribution, are releasing a special Much Of The Best Of Big Stick album. A long playing collection of “classic” Big Stick selections, along with three tracks taken from the band’s soon to be released new album, LP. Limited to 500 copies on clear vinyl. There’s a total of fifteen songs on this collection. The “classics” include “Drag Racing” (of John Peel’s Box fame) “I Look Like Shit,” “Jesus Was Born On An Indian Reservation,” “Billy Jack Paddy Wack,” “Devil’s Jukebox,” “Hoochie Koo Time,” “Bianca Blast,” “California Dreamin’,” “Hokey Pokey Girl,” “Scum Rooky’s Cafe,” “I Live The Good Life,” and “Black Cow.” The three brand new tracks picked from their upcoming album which the duo believes worthy of including are “Rascal,” “Metaphysical Speaker” and “Calamari Co Co Butter.” The mindful packaging of this collection includes a retrospective collage of Big Stick photographs and images, both past and present, along with photos of Gill’s and Trance’s art and sculpture work and detailed liner notes describing curious facts and trivia related to the duo and the fifteen different featured songs. Aiming to serve in acquainting those not familiar with Gill’s and Trance’s somewhat off-the-beaten-path brand of musical undertakings, while also providing long overdue satisfaction for those who do know of Big Stick and have been waiting ever-so-patiently for something like this to finally spin on their turntables!"



Big Stick slithered up from the NYC art rock underground in the mid-80’s, worlds apart both stylistically and sonically from the noise-damage darlings of the junkie punk scene they emerged from - Pussy Galore (2), White Zombie or their high profile big mean daddies in Sonic Youth, Swans, or Foetus. John Gill and Yanna Trance were a live-work-kill together couple who brewed up their crazed sonic schemes in their very own secret headquarters, explaining little and revealing even less. They performed wearing elaborate masks, and all known press photos were similarly mysterious affairs, shrouding their true identities in a veil of feathers and wigs and antlers.
