As they fully acknowledge on their blog, the folks at Matador Records aren’t the first to roll out a limited-edition subscription series of 7″ singles. But that’s not about to stop them or keep them from putting together some pretty damn intriguing releases. I mean, for their first single, its a split release between Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks and L.A. Guns., who will be covering one another.
In case you’re wondering, Malkmus and the Jicks will tackle “Wheels on Fire” while the Guns will take on “Gorgeous George.” The next two releases in the singles program feature new material from OBN III and the Men, respectively, while the rest of the calendar remains unknown.
