Bloodbags & Downtube Shifters
Hematocrit colored cassette in a dark red transparent case with a 2 page J card and a bonus track. Limited to 80 copies.
This is an eulogy to the grit of 80s & 90s cycling.
The Hairnets, the toeclips.
The Blood bags and the downtube shifters.
Watching races on VHS.
Drilling holes in your chain rings.
Going 100km/h down a wet alpe on 19mm tyres while under the influence and with a juiced Fleming breathing down your neck.
It was the closest experience to a videogame that you could ever have in real life.
Dedicated to a whole generation who is yet to experience a rainy Paris Roubaix.
This album is molded to fit the cadence of the training sessions on your rollers. The songs are built to gimmick the races, the cols, the descents, the cobblestones, the crashes…
