While Fat has a long history of bands influenced BY the Ramones (Chixdiggit!, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, Screeching Weasel), releasing an album FROM an actual Ramone is a first and a true honor. Last Chance to Dance is CJ Ramone’s second solo album and was recorded with the stellar backing band of Steve Soto (Adolescents), Dan Root (Adolescents), and David Hidalgo, Jr. (Social Distortion). With a sound and style true to the Ramones, CJ has created a positively infectious punk rock record. Sometimes you just “need a Ramones fix,” the expression goes, and CJ Ramone’s Last Chance to Dance satisfies that craving in spades. Don’t believe us? Go here and listen to the first track and single, “Understand Me.” The 7" will be released on October 14th (pre-order here) with the album arriving on November 25th. And now, a word from the man himself, CJ RAMONE:
Hey kids Cj Ramone here. My new record Last Chance to Dance is coming out November 25th!!! It’s 12 tracks of everything you’d expect from a Cj Ramone record. Hard chargin’ and vicious with some sweet melodies to smooth out the edges. Keep an eye for dates for our 2015 World Tour. See y’all on the big road.
Swingin’ Utters are gearing up to release their eighth full-length album in November— Fistful of Hollow —and this is your first chance to hear some of the magic these prolific songsmiths have conjured up this time around. The spotlight in this, the album’s title track, is shining directly on guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Darius Koski. Get yourself a “Fistful of Hollow” right here, right now!
Hey Chicago! Fat has landed, and not from Wisconsin (heyo!). We came all the way from gorgeous San Francisco, California to bring our Fat Record Store to you! That means an EXCLUSIVE collectible record set just for you, not even available in SF! Fat Music For Riot Fest People. This is a set of three flexi-disc singles, featuring brand new songs from Lagwagon, Swingin’ Utters, plus the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes’ song that’s tearing up the German charts, “Straight Up”. These aren’t your parents’ flexi-discs; these things actually sound GOOD! Each flexi is a different color, and there are TWO different sets of three colors available. Confused? Just visit our booth at Riot Fest to straighten it out and buy your set for only $10. The rad cover art below is courtesy of Black Axe-ist Horsebites, a.k.a. the drummer of None More Black.
We’ve also got an exclusive Chicago-based Fat t-shirt design PLUS a ton of rarities straight from our record store, including store exclusives, colored vinyl and new releases, not to mention super sales on some classic Fat titles on CD. So Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, go visit Pat, Vanessa, Erin, and any number of band members that drop by to hang out.
