Pylon “Gravity” b/w “Weather Radio” 45rpm


At the height of their powers, Pylon performed their final show at the Mad Hatter in their hometown of Athens, Georgia in the winter of 1983.

Two enterprising gentlemen professionally filmed and recorded this show as a pilot for a potential Austin City Limits-style show called “Athens Shows,” but quickly abandonned the project. Shelved and forgotten about for over 30 years, this single marks the first newly released Pylon since the early nineties.

The sounds of Pylon are nothing new to hardcore fans, but this propulsive and powerful recording will be sure to keep you dancing and waiting in blissful anticipation for their double LP “Live” which will be due out on Randy Bewley’s birthday in late July.

Limited to 500 copies.
