Ever see the movie Angus? Neither have I. But they have a pretty good soundtrack. Including one of Green Day's best songs. Lots of power pop for your enjoyment.

Ahhh the Riddlin' Kids. Remember them? I DO! They were a popular power pop / pop punk band that were on mainstream TV for some time. I saw them at the old Champion Ship a few years ago with a stupid bitch I wont name. My car ended up breaking down on rt 15 under the turnpike after that show. Fuck! They played in front of 7 kids. Well 6 if you dont count me. I felt kinda bad cuz I talked to them and they were super nice people. They most love playing music cuz they played with a ton of energy and had a lot of fun. I bought this at the ever famous City Lights Records in State College PA for about $2. I think they are still around as well so go check them out.
PRESSING INFO: 5 track EP release on Aware Records. Which I think is another offshoot label of Sony Music. Probably a few thousand pressed.

2. Tell Me Why

FIRST NOTE!!!: I'd like to state that if you are in a band, were in a band, or a label and your stuff is on here, and you would like me to remove it BY ALL MEANS LET ME KNOW!! I will remove your bands or labels release from my blog. I have no problem with that. You may wonder why I put this, well nobody told me to do it. Infact in an earlier post, I posted the Christian Science AD album for download. And one of the band members posted a comment and said download away. He always said there were 1000 CD's pressed! I love when I get this kind of information. Here is the link to download if you would like. http://rapidshare.com/files/135127062/christian_science_AD.zip.html
Ok now for a new blog. Boxcar were straight out of the new jersey pop punk (NJPP) scene in the late 90's. In my opinion, some of the best pop punk, ska and power pop came out of jersey between 1995 and 2001. And this album is no exception. Unfortunatly, I think this band went under the radar in the 90's. Great fast NJPP thats a lot of fun! They also release a 7" which I have been tracking down for years. I will also be posting a ton of comps in the future with this band on it. Produced by Steve Evetts @ Trax East Studios (lifetime, saves the day, kid dynamite, snapcase, dillenger escape plan, etc).
PRESSING INFO: Release on Red Leader Records in 1999. I'm guessing around 1000 pressed?
1. The Complete Guide To Home Bartending
2. It's All About You
3. Gone Away
4. Song That Ruined Everything
7. High Protein Tonsil Wash
8. Left Out

Bad Taste Records was a melodic punk label base out of Sweden. They release a good bit of releases and they are still around. It's basically the Fat Wreck Chords of Sweden. Here is a comp that is still in print but unavailable in the United States as far as I know. And with shipping from Sweden, this comp is gonna set you back a good chunk of change. So here it is! I bought this at a record store called "City Lights Records" in State College PA. $3.99 for a OOP promo CD is a little steep, but I love comps so I couldn't pass it up. This comp has melodic punk, thrash, surf and straight up punk all in one.
PRESSING INFO: Released in I think 1998-1999 on Bad Taste Records from Sweden. This is a the promo only version.
