Personnel includes: Adam Marsland (vocals). Personnel: Kurt Medlin (drums). Liner Note Author: Gary Pig Gold. Recording information: Brennan’s Irish Pub, Marina Del Rey, CA (06/01/2002/06/02/2002); Lincoln Lounge, Venice, CA (06/01/2002/06/02/2002). Photographer: Steve Hayes. When punk rock became a mainstream phenomenon and gave up any of the D.I.Y. pretense on which it was founded, a new school of “punk rockers” – artists who were too good or too original to fit into the mainstream even if they didn’t sound “punk” at all – emerged during the ’90s. Adam Marsland, along with his band Cockeyed Ghost, fit squarely into this movement. Armed with songs almost too literate and too catchy for mass consumption, Cockeyed Ghost weren’t able to garner a mainstream audience, but they did cultivate a large and devoted cult following across the U.S. But without enough money for a proper tour, Marsland took matters into his own hands by hauling his 1994 Toyota Tercel across the country, armed with an acoustic guitar. That’s punk rock in the classic, D.I.Y. sense, even if not in sound – and the resulting live album, 232 Days on the Road, is a convincing portrait of both Marsland’s brilliant songwriting and his presence as a live entertainer. The ten live tracks run through some selected highlights from the four Cockeyed Ghost albums but also pull out rarities – “Party Apartment,” “Portland,” “Cut and Run,” and a cover of They Might Be Giants’ “James K. Polk” – all doused with Marsland’s one-part-Elvis Costello-and-one-part-Ben Folds-style sarcastic and witty stage banter. The lone drawback is a mastering error that left a strange buzz running through the entire show, though it’s thankfully low enough in the mix to be ignored. As an added bonus to fans, three new studio cuts are tacked onto the end, and they’re in the same vein of moody pop classicism as the band’s 2001 masterpiece Ludlow 6:18. The end product is an utterly original and entertaining live album,

At My Age


At My Age


$14.65


Blue eyed soul? You don’t even know the definition until you’ve heard the sweet smoke of Nick Lowe’s trademark croon. Now, later in life, Lowe’s rootsy, grown-up soul has risen to the surface of what was a cracked and stripped down artistic aesthetic in the late seventies when he produced records for Elvis Costello, The Pretenders and influential British proto-punkers the Damned. During his years as house producer for Stiff records Lowe’s oft-copied rough hewn production style set the stage for the D.I.Y. philosophy of the punk revolution. Sublimely aged in a solid oak barrel, At My Age showcases Lowe’s perfection of his own unique brand of soul-soaked country pop, resulting in an album as refined and perfectly distilled as he is. Lowe’s convention-breaking phrasing shines backed by gorgeous sixties Memphis-style horns and tastefully subdued guitar hooks. At My Age displays, with Nick’s signature polish, the sublime, linear connection between country, rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll. So, grab a drink, a smoke and hear Americana done right. by a Brit.

Paradise *


$11.85


Personnel: Mish Way (vocals); Kenneth William (guitar); Anne-Marie Vassiliou (drums). Audio Mixer: Lars Stalfors. Photographers: Piper Ferguson; Justin Gradin. White Lung’s fourth studio album, 2016′s Paradise, is a dynamic, purposeful work by a band coming into its own. A streamlined, passionate, ball-bustingly confident album, Paradise is the perfect showcase for vocalist Mish Barber-Way’s throaty, raging punk intensity, drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou’s propulsive rhythms, and guitarist/bassist Kenneth William’s kinetic heavy metal and emo-informed fretwork. Working with producer Lars Stalfors (Matt and Kim, Cold War Kids, the Mars Volta), White Lung have honed their approach, zeroing in on several well-curated influences from Hole to the Pixies, Nirvana, and other late-’80s/early-’90s bands. If Barber-Way’s resonant wail hinted at Hole’s Courtney Love in the past, here she veritably underlines the comparison while also managing to stake out her own distinctive frontwoman territory. Part of this comes from her unflinching, fearless attitude at the microphone and sanguine, exuberant vocals. There’s an enigmatic, feminist energy in her performance that’s often implied more in tone than in the lyrics. Nonetheless, there is definitely a grungy, swing-from-your-hips, ’90s riot grrrl punk underpinning to tracks like “Dead Weight,” “Narcoleptic, and “Below.” On “Vegas,” she sings “Her mouth bleeds/Are you sorry?/Was she worth it?/Was her skin made of gold?” It doesn’t hurt that she’s framed by William’s dazzling, laser-gun rat-a-tat guitar lines. Cuts like “Sister,” “I Beg You,” and “Kiss Me When I Bleed” strike a fist-pumping balance between the fiery hardcore mathematics of Taking Back Sunday and the passionate, guttural indignation of L7. With Paradise, White Lung have ultimately crafted an album of hooky, infectious songs that still retain all the rage and D.I.Y. punk creativity of their previous work. ~ Matt Collar

Binding: Hardcover Author: Alan O’Connor Language: English Publication Date: 2008-05-13 Number of Pages: 158 Publisher: Lexington Books This Book Describes The Emergence Of Diy Punk Record Labels In The Early 1980S. Based On Interviews With Sixty-One Labels, Including Four In Spain And Four In Canada, It Describes The Social Background Of Those Who Run These Labels. Especially Interesting Are Those Operated By Dropouts From The Middle Class. Other Respected Older Labels Are Often Run By People With Upper Middle-Class Backgrounds. A Third Group Of Labels Are Operated By Working-Class And Lower Middle-Class Punks Who Take A Serious Attitude To The Work. Using The Ideas Of French Sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, This Book Shows How The Field Of Record Labels Operates. The Choice Of Independent Or Corporate Distribution Is A Major Dilemma. Other Tensions Are About Signing Contracts With Bands, Expecting Extensive Touring, And Using Professional Promotion. There Are Often Rivalries Between Big And Small Labels Over Bands That Have Become Popular And Have To Decide Whether To Move To A More Commercial Record Label. Unlike Approaches To Punk That Consider It As Subcultural Style, This Book Breaks New Ground By Describing Punk As A Social Activity. One Of The Surprising Findings Is How Many Parents Actually Support Their Children’S Participation In The Scene. Rather Than Attempting To Define Punk As Resistance Or As Commercial Culture, This Book Shows The Dilemmas That Actual Punks Struggle With As They Attempt To Live Up To What The Scene Means For Them.

$12.87


Audio Mixer: Guy Picciotto. Bikini Kill would become the most visible and vocal group in the Riot Grrrl movement, a scene that would meld the independent, D.I.Y. spirit of punk rock with a new and fearless approach to feminism, both in music and in the larger culture. But in mid-1991, Bikini Kill weren’t icons just yet; they were a scrappy young band looking to make a name for themselves, and they cut their first demo tape in one afternoon after playing a house party the night before. Bikini Kill sold self-dubbed cassette copies of the eight-song demo, titled Revolution Girl Style Now, at shows and through the mail, but it soon fell out of print, and several of its songs would be re-recorded for the group’s self-titled EP released late the same year. In 2015, Bikini Kill vocalist and co-founder Kathleen Hanna gave the original Revolution Girl Style Now tape its first release on CD and vinyl on her own Bikini Kill Records label, in an expanded edition that added three outtakes from the original recording sessions (though the final song on the reissue, “Playground,” cuts short due to the machine running out of tape during recording). ~ Mark Deming
