'Kid Is Gone' is the unquiet portrait of primal Unwound. Before 1993s Fake Train ripped through, theyd been Giant Henry, Supertanker, and Cygnus X-1, short-lived black holes gathering dark material into something built to explode. From Justin Trosper, Vern Rumsey, and Brandt Sandeno's first restive years, "Crab Nebula" mightve best prepared the indie-sphere for what Unwound became, had Sandeno's split not stalled their planned debut. Part 1 in Numero's 4-part reissue project, 'Kid Is Gone' documents signal chaos in Olympias fertile scene before Unwound's turbulent noise hit stride, in unrevealed period photos, 34 tracks, and three LP's-cassette-only demos, early 7"s, a KAOS radio broadcast, material tracked live in a local basement, and all of what became 1994's Unwound, on which the bands prehistory plays out in a feral maelstrom of screaming, distortion, feedback, and abrasive promise.
