"Trouble In Mind is supremely honoured to release the 10th Anniversary reissue of Beijing trio Offset: Spectacles lone full-length album; a forward-thinking, captivating and uncompromising missive meant to subvert R'n'R traditions; drummer-less, lo-fi, with surrealist lyrics meant to confound & unnerve. The band was a crucial part of the Rose Mansion Analog label (including bands Soviet Pop, Hot & Cold, and Golden Driver) and the scene that spawned around it. Since the band's dissolution, guitarist Tom Ng has formed the (even more) minimalist duo Gong Gong Gong (Wharf Cat Records) and continues to hone the 'Phantom Rhythm' with each passing release. The Offset: Spectacles debut album is presented again in glorious black vinyl, with remastered audio by Mikey Young, and includes a new insert with English translations of the lyrics by Vince Li. The album will also land on streaming services for the first time."
