On the eve of Drop Nineteens’ first live performances in 30
years, Wharf Cat Records are excited to present the
reissue of the band’s shoegaze masterpiece, ‘Delaware’.

‘Delaware’ is the debut studio album by American band
Drop Nineteens, originally released on June 19, 1992.
Despite the album’s release over 30 years ago, and the
band remaining inactive from 1993 onwards, this album
has remained a favourite of shoegaze fans for decades
and was listed as one of The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums Of
All Time by Pitchfork in 2016. This lasting love of the
record has cemented Drop Nineteens as one of the most
influential bands of the genre from their time.

Over the last several years the album has found a new
audience that has championed ‘Delaware’ alongside the
band’s mostly UK 1990s contemporaries. A new legion of
Drop Nineteens fans have likely discovered their music
through streaming services, rather than on 120 Minutes.

Tracks like the towering ‘Kick The Tragedy’ and pop songs
‘Winona’ and ‘Delaware’ sit next to more experimental
moments like ‘Reberrymemberer’. And while the album is
certainly a wild ride, it all flows together as easily as
singers Greg Ackell and Paula Kelley’s vocals.

Now, for the first time, this record will be available on
yellow coloured vinyl, remastered by Carl Saff.

“Their debut album, ‘Delaware’, is one of the great
American shoegaze records of the scene’s original era” – Brooklyn Vegan
