Have You Ever Seen the Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? are set to release a double LP and a 7″ on the US label Sympathy for the Record Industry.

The double LP titled Bless You Mother Fuckers will consist of the sophomore album Jazzbelle 1984 / 1988 (2018) and the debut album Teenage Sweetheart (2015). The 7″ will include the songs Family Man, (Do the) Shämäläin, Bambi Act and Grey Panthers. A limited amount of the LP and 7″ will be also available in Finland.

Sympathy for the Record Industry is an indie label pioneer, founded in 1988 and piloted by a self-titled “Anti-Mogul” Long Gone John. The label is best known for putting out the early releases from White Stripes, Hole, Roky Erickson and Suicide. Also Turbonegro have released on Sympathy.

As Long Gone John himself put it:
“Most importantly which has the kids in the know foaming at the mouth will be a double LP and 7″ by Finland’s notorious bublegum punk sensations, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE JANE FONDA AEROBIC VHS? From there things can only begin to deteriorate…”


It’s only few weeks from the release of Jane Fonda’s sophomore album Jazzbelle 1984 / 1988 but it has already claimed excellent reviews from the Finnish media as well as the German and UK media. The album also reached position 7 on the official physical sales chart of Finland.
