2013 Record Store Day release, limited to 1050 copies on gray vinyl.
Before there was Unwound, there was Cygnus X-1. And before there was Cygnus X-1, there was Giant Henry. Recorded in original Unwound drummer Brandt Sandeno’s parents’ basement over one weekend in the winter of 1991, the 12-song vinyl-only Big Baby captures captures Vern Rumsey, Brandt Sandeno, and Justin Trosper in their Bleach-ed out halcyon days. Taking a cue from the scene they came kicking and screaming out of, we hand screened and stamped the jackets. Stoughton Printing fabricated an all black tip on jacket that was slathered in silver ink in three variations: The childhood photos of drummer Sandeno, bassist Rumsey, and guitarist Trosper. The accompanying insert was printed on 80lb black paper in silver ink, with one side taken up by a photo of the band shot by a young Kathleen Hanna and the other filled with reflections for singer/guitarist Justin Trosper.
