She’s Studying Evil
Price: $8.00
Artist: Beowulf Umbrella
Description: A 4-SONG, 12” VINYL-ONLY EP (that comes with a downloads card)! WOW!!!!! Recorded over three days in August 2018, “She Studying Evil” is the work of Tommy Keene band alumni Brad Quinn and John Richardson with help from bassist/keyboardist Kevin Dailey, guitarist Adam Ollendorff, guitarist Mike Schlenker, and Paul Chastain (Velvet Crush/The Small Square)!. Although a studio project in essence Quinn performs under the Beowulf Umbrella name in Japan where he lives both solo and group configurations. The title track was inspired by a line from Robert Johnson's “Kindhearted Woman Blues” and is a send up of those “Evil Woman”, “Black Magic Woman” types of tunes. “Just Say The Word” the oldest song on the record was written and demoed with a different title and a rough draft of the lyrics in 1989. The lyrics were formally finalized in August 2018 hours before the song was recorded, capping nearly 30 years of neglect. The song is highlighted by harmonies from Paul Chastain and an extended understated jam at the end. “In The Rough” is highlighted by Quinn's intimate vocal, pedal steel from Ollendorff, and a piano solo by Dailey. The song is a meditation on knowing where to start, when to stop, and when to leave well enough alone. “When We Began” is a song about being in a band, made especially poignant by the loss of Tommy Keene in 2017, to whom this song is dedicated. WE WANT A FULL-LENGTH BRAD!!!! PLEASE HEAR OUR PLEA!! GREAT!!! ... read more »

First time in vinyl, for these tracks originally recorded in 1972 and 1973. "previously only seen release on a hard to find 2004 rarities CD release. "An excellent job has been done of cherry-picking the best moments from the 2004 Not Lame CD comp to put this together, with 'She's So Nice' and 'Halloween Girl' in particular being great examples of the Blue Ash sound. The epic, string laden 'Silver Horses' may trump them both though, and shows a depth not necessarily expected from the band." - TheActive-Listener.com GREAT!! ... read more »

Lights The Pilot!!!
Price: $15.00
Artist: Dollface
Description: VINYL PRESSING reissue of their 1996 CD release originally on Warm Jet Records. "These guys are amazing. It's hard to imagine a band like this not making it big, cuz they had it all, heavy and hooky, killer songs, a vocalist with a seriously rad raspy yowl, the band whipping up a sort of grungy, glammy power pop, but with shades of classic Twin/Tone bands, and early Homestead Records. Swaggery glam punk meets garage pop, fuzzy grunge meets ramshackle noise rock. We hear tons of early/classic Aerosmith, there's a huge Seattle grunge vibe a la Green River/Mudhoney, and we also hear lots of Soul Asylum as well, back when they were AWESOME. It's a hard rocking doozy, just give a listen to 'Destiny, Oh Destiny', which sounds like some lost Nirvana B-side, right down to the vocalist's inflection, and the weird chugging grunginess, in fact, anyone who digs Nirvana (and Nirvana worshippers like Roomrunner) will lose their shit for this. It's like the weirder, darker, noisier side of Nirvana, super melodic busy basslines, crumbling distorted guitar jangle and crunch, two and a half minutes that you'll likely find yourself playing over and over and over. But the rest of the record is not too shabby either, slipping from the pogo-y punk pop of 'Rods And Cones', to the fuzzy, noisy, grunged out power pop of 'I Breakdown And Cry', with its killer woozy bridge, and the awesome, about-to-crack vocals, and from the crazy catchy, chugging jangle pop of 'Atlantis', to the twisted experimental new wave weirdness of the title track. This pushes pretty much all our 90's rock buttons." - Andrea/Aquarius Records GREAT!! ... read more »

Corvette Summer
Price: $15.00
Artist: Dollface
Description: VINYL-ONLY reissue of their 1994 Punk Pop debut originally released on Crackpot Records. From 1989 to 1996, one band ruled the underground rock scene of central Illinois. Here in this ragged, tight-knit, all-ages network of Midwestern skate parks and legion halls - a time when punk and pop bands, ska and metal bands would all play together - Dollface! With harmonies like angels and all the raw edge of punk, they were a true band in every sense of the word, tapping our emotions with childlike glee, and backing up their willful abandon with a wicked sense of humor, stellar musicianship and refreshing lack of pretension. Their quirky tunes were pop, they were punk, they were loud and snotty and silly, but mostly, they were rock n’ roll. Despite a burst of regional success, Peoria, IL answer to Urge Overkill, Cheap Trick and the Beatles never achieved the massive breakthrough that should have been theirs. "This is an extremely catchy pop record, it will have you singing 'No duh/No doi' for days on end!" - Amazon.com "Their music has stood the test of time. For those who were there, it's hard to overstate their impact. They touched a lot of people and set the stage for so many of us. And that's pretty meaningful" - Jonathan Wright GREAT!!! ... read more »
