The Presidents of the United States of America - Lump CD (Sony 1999)

This is sort of a best of release. Although I would have chose more songs than this. If you don't know me, this is the band that got me into music. So naturally, one of my favorites as well. And the first band that I tried to get everything they ever released. And I'm pretty close! I just need a few super rare pieces and I'm set. Keep and eye out in this blog and I will post A LOT of rare stuff by this band. Anyways the best songs on this release are volcano, japan, and back porch. Cleveland Rocks was the theme song for the drew carey show for sometime.

Unsung Zeros - Fading Out EP (Distant Rise Records 2001)

Unsung Zeros - Fading Out EP CD

As much as I want to post some 7" records and the such, alas, the turntable is still broken. But I do not have a shortage of hard to find and out of print CDs to share with everybody.

The unsung zeros are a pop punk band out of Mt. Dora Florida. They did have a following back in the day when they toured with the pop punk scene. A lot of their stuff is still available. This EP has been out of print for years, and isnt all that hard to find. Although you will have to look in order to find it. 5 tracks including a Genesis cover.

PRESSING INFO: Released in 2001 on Distant Rise Records. There website doesnt exist anymore and I couldnt find it in the archives. So I dont know how many were pressed.

1 Fading Out
2. Day in Day Out
3. lose it all
4. invisible touch
5. postcards home

The Sellouts - Demo CDr

Face of the CDr

First off I would like to say something about this blog and the lack of updates. I have A TON of vinyl records I want to upload. But my record player is busted right now. Thats the main reason for the lack of updates. So for the next couple of days, I will be posting CDs until I get the turntable fixed..

Anyways...No this is not a bootleg copy that I stole off of somebody. I saw this band a couple of years ago at the monroe township building in mechanicsburg. They were pretty good. And this is what they were selling. I think it was $1 or $2. I am not sure. I found their old site on the internet archive, but could not find much about this release or the band. If my mind serves me right, there was 4 people in this band.

I remember hearing that they were playing on the radio live I think in Wilkes Barre back around the time I saw them. If anybody has info on that show please contact me.

PRESSING INFO: UMMMM no idea! I do know that when I bought this, there was different colored sleeves to chose from. Since my favorite color is green, I bought this. This is an official release, and I have no idea how many where pressed.

TRACK LISTING: There was no track listing that came with this. There are 4 songs.
