Kerosene 454 - Intro / Down on Three 7"

ARTIST: Kerosene 454
TITLE: Intro / Down on Three
LABEL: Art Monk Construction
YEAR: 1994
PRESSING INFO: Only pressed on black vinyl

Another released I picked up in the 50 cent room up at double decker in Allentown. I had heard Kerosene 454 on an old emo mixtape somebody made me. This record is out of print but its not all that hard to find. Since K454 arent a band that people go apeshit over in the collecting realm. Probably around 1000-2000 pressed.

V/A - Disarming Violence CD

ARTIST: Various
TITLE: Disarming Violence
LABEL: Fast Music
YEAR: 2000

I picked this release up at repo records in Philadelphia this past December. It was originally priced $7.99 but I ended up getting it in the $3 bin. It has a good mix of punk and hardcore and even a ska song thrown in for good measure. If you have the original CD, you can put it into your computer and it has a saves the day video and other pictures.

If you want the original, it should be easy to find on Amazon or Ebay. But first, check your local record store!

Lanemeyer - If There's A Will, There's Still Nothing CD

ARTIST: Lanemeyer
TITLE: If There's A Will, There's Still Nothing
LABEL: Too Hep Records
YEAR: 2000
GENRE: Pop punk /emo

Lanemeyer was a staple in the New Jersey pop punk scene during its heyday in the late 90's. And they are one of my all time favorite bands. Number 3 behind Green Day and The Presidents.

I bought this off of ebay a few years ago when I heard "figure it out" on a comp (said comp will be posted in this blog!). They were on a lot of comps, and issued a 7", an EP and various demo tapes. This was their second release and their only full length besides the restrospective CD. I have some unreleased stuff that Ill post sometime. I stole this info from Wikipedia...

"Lanemeyer was formed in 1997. Taking their name from John Cusack's character (Lane Meyer) in the film Better Off Dead..., Lanemeyer were known for their humor and love of comedy. They broke up in 2001 after touring with bands such as The Lawrence Arms, Bigwig, River City High, Whippersnapper, and many more. After the breakup, several members continued to perform with other bands, such as The Forever Endeavor and Day At The Fair (Rushmore Records). Lanemeyer has reunited several times to play single shows, with varying member lineups."

Also, Brian from The Gaslight Anthem was the lead singer of Lanemeyer after Chris Barker left along with Mike Doyle.
