MEAN JEANS -Jingles Collection – out February 16!

It looks like Mean Jeans buckled down over the holidays and whipped up a whole record featuring 23 jingles! Punk’s history of shilling for companies dates back to the Ramones writing three songs for Steel Reserve, and the Sex Pistols’ Johnny Rotten hamming it up in a butter commercial. In a single weekend, the band wrote and recorded the Jingles Collection, an album that transforms commercial jingles into high art.

Billy Jean elaborates, “We’ve abandoned the previous direction of the band. No one needs to hear another three-chord, pop-punk record about partying. What they need are some sick jingles. We are a jingles band now.”

Out February 16, and available now for pre-order, the Jingles Collection includes everything from Sizzler to Hot Pockets to Applebee’s. Check out the below links to get acquainted with the jingles that started it all and if you can, catch them live, as they’ll be on tour with Dirty Fences later this month!

Wrapping up 2017!

So long 2017! Today is our last day in the office this year. We released a ton of great records and were able to make sizable donations to five organizations that benefited from the sale of our Not My President t-shirts. You can learn more about each organization by heading here. Additionally, in case you missed it, we were scooped by Fat Mike on a new release for 2018…a brand new Cokie The Clown album! Head to his Instagram feed to read all about it. We want to give a big thanks to all who’ve supported us and our bands in 2017; we couldn’t do any of this without you. Finally, our office is closed for 2017, so any orders placed won’t ship until the new year. We’ll be back in 2018 with a full year of fantastic new records!

The Swingin’ Utters and The Last Gang – out today!

The Swingin’ Utters album, Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun, is out today! This 33-song best-of compilation touches on every era of the band’s career…from their 1995 debut, The Streets of San Francisco, all the way up to 2014’s, Fistful of Hollow. The Swingin’ Utters passion for what they do has always been palpable, and it’s why Drowning In The Sea, Rising With The Sun is as crucial now as when the music was first released. For fans, it’s a celebration of one of the Bay Area’s longest standing creative forces. And for the uninitiated, it offers a cohesive rundown on a band that’s impossible to sum up.

Also out today, The Last Gang 7”, Sing For Your Supper. The title track—which will also be on their new album—is the kind of palm-muted ripper that made Rancid famous; chock full with a bouncing bass line, a huge hook, and airtight songwriting that’ll get stuck in your head for years to come. The B-side, exclusive to this release, is no less throttling. Straight from the jump, the song whips up a frenzy, shifting directions on a dime, but never losing sight of The Last Gang’s pop-indebted ethos.
