Special, very limited edition copy of the first single ever released by The Stripminers - only 200 printed! - and signed by Paul Stinson. Featuring the songs "No Luck" and "Better Than a Song." Original packaging designed by Brett Anderson. Both songs written and sung by Brett Anderson (the Donnas) and Paul Stinson (the Radishes). All-star band lineup on these two tracks includes: DJ Bonebrake (X, The Knitters) on drums on "Better Than a Song"; Mitch Marine (Dwight Yoakam) on drums on "No Luck"; Scrote (Puscifer, Daniel Johnston) on electric guitar; Chris Bruce (Me'Shell Ndegeocello) on electric guitar and banjo; Brett Simons (Brian Wilson, Melissa Etheridge) on bass on "Better Than a Song"; and Jon Button (Roger Daltrey, Sheryl Crow) on bass on "No Luck."
"Somewhat of a supergroup, The Stripminers is the side project for members of many prominent indie bands, most notably Brett Anderson of The Donnas and Paul Stinson of The Radishes. The duo joined creative forces in 2009 and eventually convinced enough industry friends to form a solid six-piece. Equal parts punk and Americana, The Stripminers creates resolute anti-folk with male-female harmonies and an undeniable amount of raw energy." - Wcities
"Our latest discovery is the Stripminers and their acerbic, punky take on Americana with the tense and terse No Luck. Marvellous." - Mad Mackerel (5/21/11)
"Artist to Watch" - Rollo & Grady (5/17/11)
