The first Archers of Loaf full length is a work of indie rock genius. Really great stuff...so many solid songs on this disc. The original (black vinyl) release shows up for sale fairly regularly, but can cost a bit. In 2011, Merge Records remastered and re-released Icky Mettle (and Fire Records put it out in Europe). These deluxe editions were released on blue and black vinyl. The value of the original had been skyrocketing in 2010-11 (following the band's reunion shows), but the re-release seemed to curb demand for it for a while, but it's gone back up during the pandemic collectible boom. The reissues are all relatively inexpensive.
