Limited edition of 500 copies. 
Highly recommended. 

Great Plains were a literate lo-fi folk-punk band from Columbus, Ohio (There is also a 90's country band with the name, and this is DEFINITELY NOT them). They were led by the ever-aging and always strident Ron House, who later formed the wonderful Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments. Born in a Barn features crazed but oddly catchy numbers about Abraham Lincoln and Rutherford B. Hayes. An acquired taste, but you should acquire it.

Rerun Records is proud to present new issues of the first two records by Columbus, OH's GREAT PLAINS. Smartass garage pop, firmly rooted in a beer-soaked Midwestern basement. Catchy tunes with too smart for their own good lyrics from the off-kilter mind of RON HOUSE. The first release is a reissue of their 1983 debut, The Mark, Don & Mel EP 12". We've added four bonus live tracks to make it a full LP, all performed by the same line-up as the EP. The second is a reissue of their first full length Born In A Barn, originally released on the legendary Homestead Records in 1984. Both have been out of print for 30-plus years. Both have remastered audio and printed inner sleeves with discography, testimonials, reviews of the original releases, photos, etc.
