(MMP) Acid Drinkers are to this day the best and the most spectacular thrash metal band in Poland. During their long and eventful career they played over 500 concerts, including still well remembered gigs at Jarocin festival, Metalmania, Węgorzewo, Przystanek Woodstock or Odjazdy. They supported such metal giants as Deep Purple, Megadeth, Bruce Dickinson, Sepultura, Paradise Lost or Slayer. Acid Drinkers won Fryderyk Award (Polish equivalent of Grammy Award) in 1998, 2000 and 2004 for "Best Hard & Heavy Act".

And today Metal Mind Productions will re-release first three albums from the band's wide discography: Are You A Rebel?, Dirty Money, Dirty Tricks, and Streap Tease.

All three titles are limited to 1000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process. Metal Mind Productions set the release date for 23rd March in Europe and 5th May in USA (via MVD).

"Are You A Rebel?" (1990)
Acid Drinkers' stunning debut album. It is also the first album by a Polish metal band to be released on a CD. The first release of the album was made by an English label Under One Flag Records, and wasn't distributed in Poland until April 1991, when Polskie Nagrania Muza decided to put it out. The first track on the album "Del Rocca" - is one of the oldest songs created by the band. Its lyrics are about Titus's friend from Army. The album is also full of the band's typical humor, a great example of which is the song "Woman with the Dirty Feet". The most well known tracks from this release are definitely "Barmy Army" and "I F... the Violence" which are played live to these days. New digipak edition includes 8 bonus tracks (live and demo).

"Dirty Money, Dirty Tricks" (1991)
The band's second full length album. The material was recorded in Studio Giełda in February 1991. Interestingly, the band's previous album, "Are You A Rebel?", was still to be released in Poland in April at the time when "Dirty Money, Dirty Tricks" hit the record stores. The original idea of the album's title was Street Metal, but it was then changed into "Dirty Money, Dirty Tricks". Both the title and the cover art represent the band's lack of financial satisfaction. The album is softer and mellower than the band's debut LP. The best known tracks from this album are "Street Rockin'" and a cover of Deep Purple's classic, "Smoke on the Water". New digipak edition includes a bonus track recorded live in Spodek in June 1996.

"Streap Tease" (1992)
Third studio album featuring fifteen tracks sung not only by Titus and Litza, but also by Popcorn. "Streap Tease" includes also two cover songs: the first one is a flamenco version of Metallica's classic "Seek & Destroy". It is sung by a Polish artist, Edyta Bartosiewicz. The second one is "Menel Song/Alway's Look on the Bright Side of Life", a remake of a song by Monty Python. This song was a result of bands watching the movie "Life of Brian". New digipak edition is limited to 1000 copies. It includes 2 bonus tracks: live version of "Seek and Destroy" and a video clip to "Menel Song/Alway's Look on the Bright Side of Life".
