Notes

1000 copies pressed, but only 300 still exist as the other 700 were supposedly destroyed when Jeff Ott (Crimpshrine / Fifteen) found out that the money from this benefit 7" wasn't going where it should have gone. (loosecharm.org) the supposed release date there (91 or 92) cannot be right, because the coverdrawing is signed "93'Mr.Mike" (from Discogs)

HALF JAPANESE Hot 1995


Biography

by Steve Huey

Few of punk rock's founding fathers could have anticipated the extreme to which Half Japanese took the music's do-it-yourself ethos. Founded by brothers Jad and David Fair, Half Japanese was quite probably the most amateurish rock band to make a record since the Shaggs, all but ignoring musical basics like chords, rhythms, and melody. However, the brothers made that approach into a guiding aesthetic, steadfastly refusing to progress in their primitive musicianship over a career that lasted decades. David Fair's article "How to Play Guitar" outlined the Half Japanese philosophy: … » Read more

Biography

by John Bush
Friends since their childhood days in Durham, NC, Johnny Irion (vocals, guitar), Ryan Pickett (guitar), Chris Hollaway (bass), and Zeke Hutchins (drums) held their first rehearsals for Queen Sarah Saturday in 1990. Thirsty Ear released the band's debut EP in August 1993, followed one year later by the full-length Weave. Although the band's messy, melodic power pop never found a national audience, the song "Seems" was memorably featured in the 1995 film Empire Records, and frontman Johnny Irion went on to enjoy a modest career with his solo albums and collaborative projects with wife Sarah Lee Guthrie.

ACTION SLACKS Too Bright Just Right Good Night 1996


Biography

by Jason Ankeny

San Francisco indie-rockers Actionslacks assembled singer/guitarist Tim Scanlin, bassist Mark Wijsen and drummer Martin Kelly. Formed in 1995, the trio recorded the entirety of their first demo in a breakneck 11-hour session, soon signing with the Minneapolis-based indie label Skene! to release their 1996 debut LP Too Bright, Just Right, Goodnight. For 1998's One Word, Actionslacks signed with Arena Rock, subsequently touring with labelmates Harvey Danger. The new millennium was a growing period for the band -- bassist Ross Murray and guitarist/vocalist Doug Modie joined Actionslacks and the long-awaited third album The Scene's Out of Sight was issued in early 2001.

30 AMP FUSE Rewind 1998


Biography

by Mike DaRonco

With their musical that has been described as "crunch pop," 30 Amp Fuse has provided their hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee with a high speed of aggressive power-pop. Debuting in 1995 with their first full-length Wind Up, the line-up of Mike Smithers (vocals/ guitar), Jason Ratliff (drums) and Joshua Bentley (bass) followed with a signing to the BMG distributed label Dedicated. Resulting in the album Saturday Night at the Atomic Speedway, 30 Amp Fuse had the production backing of The Descendants Steve Egerton and Bill Stevenson to coincide with their fast paced styling. After moving on to Melted Records in 1998, the bands third album Rewind was soon released that same year.

Supreme Dicks Biography

by Mark Deming

Suggesting a fractious meeting point between freak folk, noise rock, experimental music, and psychedelia, indie rock band the Supreme Dicks drifted under the radar of public recognition through the 1980s and '90s, releasing a challenging and eccentric body of work that earned them some high-profile admirers and enthusiastic reviews but few sales. The first lineup of the Supreme Dicks was formed in 1982 in Amherst, Massachusetts by a handful of Hampshire College students; while a sizable number of musicians drifted in and out of the lineup over the group's lifetime, the core ensemble featured Daniel Oxenberg on guitar and vocals; Jon Shere on guitar and vocals; Steve … » Read more

Biography

by Kathleen C. Fennessy
With power and intensity to spare, post-punk hard rock trio Hammerhead could as easily have been called "Sledgehammer" (even if a heavy metal outfit from England hadn't beat them to it). Paul Sanders (vocals, guitar), Paul Erickson (vocals, bass), and Jeff Mooridian Jr. (drums) formed the group in Fargo, ND, around 1990, and moved to Minneapolis, MN, just a few years later. Amphetamine Reptile, which is also located in Minneapolis, released all of their recordings. The band has cited Taxi Driver's Travis Bickle as a guiding influence on their loud, dark, rhythmic approach. Others have compared them to everything from hardboiled pulp fiction authors Jim Thompson and James M. Cain, to brain-pounding noise rock units Unsane, Surgery, and Bastro.

Their vinyl debut was 1991's Peep picture disc single (featuring art by ex-Replacement Chris Mars). It was followed by 1992's Load King, a tour-only single issued on gray vinyl, and 1993's live Evil Twin, another tour-only single. » Read more

by Eduardo Rivadavia

Die Monster Die were formed in the alternative rock epicenter of Athens, GA, by guitarist Evan Player, who took the band's name from the 1965 horror flick starring Boris Karloff, but didn't get very far with the group during its initial run through the late '80s. In fact, it was only after relocating to New York City and teaming up with vocalist/bassist Alice Cohen, drummer Kenny Sanders, and second guitarist Shawn Tracy during the glory days of grunge that Player managed to get Die Monster Die noticed by a handful of indie record labels. They eventually decided … » Read more

None of the members of Transister were strangers to each other or to the music scene when they decided to form the band.

After Danny Wilson broke up, Clark lent his skills as an engineer, producer, and songwriter to various big-name artists: Heart, Julia Fordham, and Lauren Christy, among others.

PEACE LOVE AND PITBULLS self titled 1992

Upped by Jenz

Reupped November 2012

Biography

by Lars Lovén
Peace, Love & Pitbulls' industrial rock only received token admiration from the critics, and less than that from most of Joakim Thåström's fans. But though the group never reached a very big audience, Thåström himself has held this period as one of the most important in his career, second only to his time with Ebba Grön. When his next band, alternative rockers Imperiet, broke up in 1988, Thåström set out on a solo career. After releasing a self-titled debut at home, he moved to Amsterdam and released Xplodera Mig 2000. Influences from industrial rock and techno can be heard here, but the transition was not finished until he formed Peace, Love & Pitbulls in 1992. This was first regarded as a solo album, but the group backing Thåström -- programmer Nick Hell, guitarist and bassist Nicklas Sporrong, and guitarist Peter Puders -- proved to be long-lasting. The second album, Red Sonic Underwear, was well-received in some underground circles, but due to the genre, didn't sell very … » Read more

Biography

by Ron DePasquale

Begun as nc-17, this Canadian alternative pop/rock group changed its name after an American band with the same moniker threatened to sue. Greig Nori (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Bill Priddle (guitar, vocals), and Rosie Martin (bass, keyboards) met in high school in Sault St. Marie, Ontario, and paid the 5,000-dollar cost of releasing nc-17 on its own Smokin' Worm label as the band's full-length debut in 1994. After partnering with indie label Sonic Unyon and re-releasing nc-17, the album became Canada's best-selling indie record and the ballad "Red" received heavy play on college radio and Much Music (Canada's music television network). The following year, the band released the self-titled EP, which doubled as a CD-ROM zine dedicated to 30 of its favorite Canadian indie bands. The album was later released as Treble Charger in the U.S. and featured American indie … » Read more
