San Franciscan garage rock purveyors Sic Alps are set to release an EP of four covers from late 1970s and early 80s London post-punk outfit Tronics. Due out via Drag City on April 21st, the tracks were recorded in one weekend by Sic Alps frontman Mike Donovan and bassist Tim Hellman. I knew nothing about Tronics or the band’s founder Ziro Baby before reading about this release, but what I’ve discovered I’ve fallen pretty hard for. Below, check out “Shark Fucks,” one of the tracks that will be on the Sic Alps’ Pangea Globe EP, and “They’re Talking About Us”—a song that won’t be, but is too awesome not to share.
