A Lesson In Crime/Smith EP

Paper Bag Vintage will be releasing Tokyo Police Club's A Lesson In Crime/Smith EP on limited edition clear/silver split vinyl on June 9, 2017!

High-energy indie-rock outfit Tokyo Police Club burst onto the scene in 2005 and have gone on to release four albums and grace countless stages around the planet. Back in 2006, Toronto's Paper Bag Records released their debut EP to critical acclaim. The Paper Bag Vintage edition of A Lesson In Crime includes the band's follow-up Smith EP (2007) - two releases that would set the foundation for one of Canada's most notable musical exports.

The idea for Paper Bag Vintage grew out of a desire to showcase and preserve great Canadian albums that have yet to be pressed on vinyl or haven’t been reissued in recent years. For more than 14 years Paper Bag Records has helped to cultivate international vinyl culture by producing limited edition vinyl for all Paper Bag Records releases. This emphasis on unique and striking physical albums will be extended to the Paper Bag Vintage imprint, giving fans the opportunity to finally own these special limited edition releases.
