FAT CLASSIC COLORED VINYL SERIES!!! LAGWAGON DUH LP RE-PRESS ON PURPLE VINYL OUT NOW
This is the first title to be re-pressed in the Fat Classic Colored Vinyl Series. *Lagwagon*’s Duh originally made it’s debut in October of 1992 when the label was still run out of Fat Mike’s garage. We’re doing a limited re-press of 524 copies on purple vinyl. Here’s an update from singer Joey Cape about the recording of this classic Fat release…
“Back then, we were inexperienced in the studio. It was less about the recording process and more about rehearsing. We recorded and mixed Duh in 4 days. There’s something to be said for a budget. You have to have your shit together before you go into the studio and the end result is a record that better reflects the band’s sound at the time. I think that’s why so many band’s first records are considered to be their best. Personally, I don’t think Duh was our best though.”
Next up is The Longest Line on Peruvian white vinyl.

American Steel‘s brand new record, Destroy Their Future, comes out today! The new album marks the triumphant return of these adored East Bay / Gilman scene punks. Twelve soulful songs with their signature cultured lyrics that are a perfect amalgam of the bandâs previous albums Roguesâ March and Jagged Thoughts_. For a limited time (while supplies last) we will have autographed copies of the CD available to our mailorder and online customers and we just posted the 2nd free song, “Dead and Gone”, in our mp3 section. The band is about to embark on the 8th Annual Unbelievable Self-Indulgence Festartist/89 which is a giant US tour with the Lawrence Arms. They’re even going to play on a BOAT one night! I’m sure if you pulled off a pretty kind cannonball they’d give you a free t-shirt you could wear while being gaffed out of the Hudson and then promptly arrested.
The Flatliners brand new CD/LP, The Great Awake, is in stores now! Fat is putting out the record worldwide minus Canada which will be handled by Union 2112 Records. If you still aren’t convinced with the two free mp3’s we gave you then please check them out live from the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, OH via webcast on Yebo TV on Monday, Sept. 10th at 7:30PM EST. The band will soon be filming a video for the song Eulogy and we’ll post that for you in the coming weeks. People crapped their pants sideways for the colored vinyl of this release and it is already sold out but you can still pick up the regular CD & LP for only $8 in our web store.
The debut Fat album from Toronto, Ontarioâs, the Flatliners, is now up for pre-order in our online store and it’s only 8 BUCKS!!! The Great Awake is twelve tracks of raging punk infused with reggae, ska and hardcore in the vein of Operation Ivy, NOFX and Dillinger Four. The record officially comes out on September 4th but if you order now you will probably get it on or before the release date. All four members of this band are under 21 so they are wise beyond their Canadian years. You’ll be able to stream 5 songs from the record right here starting Wednesday. Speaking of streams …this is the original DIY Wii!
THEY’VE ACTUALLY GOTTEN WORSE LIVE
Ever done something you regret while drunk? I know, I know… so embarrassing, right? Ever woken up and rubbed your pounding skull and said, “What did I do last night?” Oh man…you should have seen yourself… first… you got totally blitzed and then… then… this is the best part… YOU RECORDED A LIVE RECORD! That’s right, back in January, NOFX booked 3 nights of talking mixed with the occasional song at Slim’s in San Francisco and recorded a live record. It’s their sloppiest, drunkest, funnest, best sounding recording ever with new versions of old songs, rare songs and they even made sure not to play any songs off their 1995 live album I Heard They Suck Live. They’ve Actually Gotten Worse Live is scheduled to make the walk of shame into record stores sometime in November.
THE LOVED ONES IN THE STUDIO
The pride of Philadelphia and are about to start recording their brand new follow up to 2006’s Keep Your Heart. The Loved Ones are heading into the studio in September and they even convinced Pete Steinkopf and Bryan Kienlen from the Bouncing Souls to park their hogs long enough to produce the record!!! They’ve also lined up some awesome cameos including Franz Nicolay from the Hold Steady to pummel the ivory for them! The album is scheduled to come out in early 2008. The brotherly lovers are then headed to Europe with NOFX in November!
