Yesterday (May 1, 2019), Queens based roots/reggae revival outfit The Frightnrs announced the first-ever vinyl pressing of Inna Lovers Quarrel track “Make Up Your Mind” backed with the new previously unreleased “Make Up Your Mind (Dub)” version of the track, out now on limited edition zoetropic 7” vinyl picture disc and digitally via Mad Decent.
An early inspiration of ‘Make Up Your Mind’ was Freddie McGregor’s ‘Don’t Hurt My Feelings’”, says Chuck Patel of The Frightnrs. “We’ve collectively always loved that track and wanted to create something with the same energy and concept.
“‘Make Up Your Mind’ is actually one of the band’s favorite tunes – we absolutely loved playing this one live. After the release of our Inna Lover’s Quarrel EP, the stand out tracks seemed to be ‘Sharon’ and ‘Admiration,’ but we always felt that some of the other killer tunes were overshadowed like ‘Make Up Your Mind’ and ‘Which Way,’ [the latter of which will be seeing its own 7” vinyl release in the coming months].”
“We are thrilled to see these get their due 45 releases and get some more light on these gems. It was fun for us to be able to revisit these tracks and create these new dubs behind our producer and general Ticklah (Victor Axelrod). It reminded us of the good times we had recording the EP and the first time we got to work with Ticklah on a full project from beginning to end and our partnership was truly cemented during that time. For the Dub of ‘Make Up Your Mind’ we added the lazer tom percussion that’s throughout the tune. The B-side dubs help shine light on not only the overall track but all the instrumentation, harmonies, etc. involved.”
