In 2010, Nuclear Bubble Wrap released their first ever professionally recorded studio album, Exploding Head Syndrome. It was an important milestone for the the comedy and nerd-rock band at the time. The songwriting trio consisting of Jace McLain, Kyle Thorne, and Brendan Sheairs created the album during their first two years of college– a time heavily steeped in 2009-2010 internet culture, for better or worse. The album would contain some of their most well known songs and viral internet hits: “Sharktopus” (still the band’s most-viewed song), “Raichu a Song” (which was the #1 song of 2010 on The Dr. Demento Show), the wizard-rock tracks “Avada Kedavra” and “Draining the Lizard,” and their cover of the Lemon Demo–er, Grapes and Sunshine song, “Birdf***er. The band went into an experimental and psychedelic direction after this album, and left the very concept of doing song parodies behind, but the album shows many hints of the experimental nature of the music that would follow on their next album: 2014’s Psycho Delicacy. For some Nuclear Bubble Wrap fans, this album is a nostalgic, comfort listen. Others find it to be tacky and immature, with its naïve and lowbrow humor. But it can’t be denied that the album is important to the band’s history, and is a cornerstone of the sound they are known for today. 12 years later, Needlejuice Records has decided to give this long out-of-print album a retrospective 4-CD treatment, with a complete remaster by Angel Hair Audio, and all of the bonus content that could be dug out of the archives from this era of the band. With this box set, you will receive the entire contents of the 2009-2012 releases from the band, warts ‘n all: You Are What You Eat, Exploding Head Syndrome, and Abracadaver, plus all of the non-albums studio recordings of the time, a wealth of demos, live recordings, unreleased home recordings, and the first ever release of an experimental lo-fi album called Graze the Skylines, which was recorded at the same time as Exploding Head Syndrome, and was a true foreshadowing of the musical direction to come.
