The mighty Numero Group label is at it again, excavating crucial sounds for the contemporary generation. Among its forthcoming goodies: The Ork Records box, an 18-disc collection of 45s that reproduce the legendary NYC punk/new wave label Ork’s original vinyl output – and throws in some additional goodies I the process. It’s due April 18 for this year’s Record Store Day and will be, in the parlance, limited.

Some details, from Numero Group”

“At the epicenter of New York’s most significant music scene was an instantly-forgotten record label; Ork Records, the first punk label and the original “indie.” For the first time ever, the monumental output of this explosive imprint’s 1975-1979 run is all in one place. Sixteen singles that birthed punk, no-wave, power pop, and the next four decades of indie rock, including the debut releases from Television, Richard Hell, Richard Lloyd, Cheetah Chrome, Alex Chilton, the dB’s, and Chris Stamey, future nuggets by the Revelons, Student Teachers, Prix, Marbles, Idols, Mick Farren, and Link Cromwell, and previously unreleased singles from the Feelies and Erasers. This is a limited edition of 2000 carefully replicated 7″ sleeves ensconced in a custom box modeled on period-specific Ork mailing labels.”
