The General Electric was the fourth album released by New Zealand’s legendary rock band Shihad. Originally released in October 1999, the album peaked at No. 1 on the New Zealand albums chart and has been certified triple platinum.
Featuring the singles, ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’ ‘Pacifier’ and ‘Wait And See, the album has been newly remastered by Tony ‘Jack the Bear’ Mantz who has overseen the previous Shihad reissues, and on October 12 it will be released on vinyl for the very first time, in a limited edition double 180 gram coloured vinyl.
Shihad was formed in 1988 with Jon Toogood, Tom Larkin, Phil Knight and Karl Kippenberger and have since released nine studio albums, won countless awards and accolades, and are known for being one of the greatest live bands to ever come out of Aotearoa.
