Broken Social Scene announces re-issue of K.C. Accidental recordings

Before there was Broken Social Scene, there was K.C. Accidental. The lo-fi bedroom recordings of BSS’s founder/vocalist/guitarist Kevin Drew and multi-instrumentalist/studio mastermind Charles Spearin, K.C. Accidental – a mostly post-rock instrumental project –laid the foundation for the Toronto collective’s sprawling expanse in the form of two self-released albums made at the end of the 90s: Captured Anthems For An Empty Bathtub and Anthems For The Could’ve Bin Pills.

Because they were self-released, traded amongst friends and hidden in the pockets of Toronto’s independent record stores, these two albums have been out of print for five years and have never been available outside of Canada. This fall, Arts & Crafts will be reissuing these seminal recordings in one package on October 26th in 2-LP, 2-CD and digital formats. Fan club members can pre-order the album right now and on Oct 26th you will also receive a bonus unreleased digital track.
