FRED COLE'S (FROM DEAD MOON, PIERCED ARROWS, THE RATS, LOLLIPOP SHOPPE, ETC!!!!) MID 70S HEAVY ROCK BAND, ZIPPER, FINALLY GETS A PROPER AND OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED STATESIDE REISSUE AFTER 40 YEARS!!!!!

RELEASED IN 1975 ON FRED AND TOODY COLE'S SHORT LIVED WHIZEAGLE LABEL, THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST AND MOST KILLER RELEASES IN FRED COLE'S LONG HISTORY OF BLOWING OUR MINDS AND EARS!!!!

ORIGINAL ARTWORK RESTORED BY BILL ROE OF TROUBLE IN MIND, AND CONTAINS TWO BONUS TRACKS NOT FOUND ON THE ORIGINAL ALBUM!!!!!!!

"File under awesome. 1973 no-frills, no bullshit, cock rock. This is Zipper—Fred Cole and company’s sicko American twist on Zeppelin and Black Sabbath." - Aquarium Drunkard

For our 50th label release, Permanent Records could not be MORE EXCITED to announce the 40th Anniversary reissue of Zipper's self-titled LP from 1975!!!! You all know Fred Cole from Dead Moon. And yes, Pierced Arrows too! But preceding both of his more "famous" bands (and others like The Rats, etc, etc) was Zipper! Formed when Fred and Toody Cole returned to Portland, Oregon after homesteading in Alaska, Zipper was the beginning of both Whizeagle Records, their in-house label, and Fred's long illustrious DIY RnR career.

Equal parts acid fried psych, raw blistering guitar fireworks, proto-punk pummel and bone crunchin' heavy rock machismo, Zipper was Fred's headfirst dive back into the rock world after his disillusionment with the "garage scene" post Weeds / Lollipop Shoppe. No managers to tell him what songs to play or what "sound" was in. No label to fight with. Just Fred Cole and a close knit group of fellow disenchanted rock n rollers (Lorry Erk, Jim Roos and Greg Shadoan), playing their in-the-red whiskey and cigarette fueled music as loud and furious as can be!!!

So for those into scorching Acid Archives psych rock, Zipper is yer next fix! And for those those Fred and Toody Cole completists, this reissue is ESSENTIAL, as originals go for as much as $250!!!! For everyone else, if you like yer rock n roll, RAW, MEAN AND UNHINGED, just like it should be, YEAH YOU NEED THIS ZIPPER LP TOO!

Hey we're not the only Zipper fanatics here either. Read on for some more glowing words!
