Lonely For You


MR. AIRPLANE MAN 
THE PIGGIESTEN DOLLAR MISTAKE

“The duo manages to make the now familiar line-up of guitar and drums sound urgent again, and they spit out both gritty, saturated blue-rock and airy, almost Spectoresque pop with a quiet strength.”

Mr. Airplane Man is Margaret on guitar and Tara on drums. Their sound is a mishmash of Mississippi hill country blues, Memphis weirdo rock'n'roll, drony VU and Stooges, and Boston garage-beat and pop wonderment. The band started in the late '90s. Almost immediately, they joined Morphine for a US tour and recorded a self-titled EP with Mark Sandman of Morphine. They went on to tour the US extensively, playing with The Reigning Sound, White Stripes, Detroit Cobras, Holly GoLightly, Hot Snakes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blues Explosion, Dirtbombs and many more.

During the '90s and '00s, Mr. Airplane Man released three albums and an EP on Sympathy for the Record Industry. They successfully toured Europe and played two Peel Sessions on John Peel’s BBC radio show. Now Mr. Airplane Man is happy to be playing and recording again, after taking a break to have babies, live in the desert, and generally shake up their lives.

Going In Style


Urban Styles: Graffiti In NYHC book signing party with author Freddy Alva. DJ Mr. Lee (Going In Style Sound System) spins scorching underground sounds. Happy hour prices until 8pm!

Urban Styles the first book from author Freddy Alva, is a subterranean adventure back to a time when subcultures and underground movements blended seamlessly and went largely unnoticed by the mainstream world. Urban Styles deftly straddles the seemingly in congruent worlds of graffiti culture and the hardcore punk scene of the 1980s to tell the story of a unique moment in time when crossover between the two outlaw cultures was a common, if not heralded, occurrence. Urban Styles chronicles a gritty New York City and its boroughs while telling the stories of forgotten revolutionaries who were as familiar with stealth runs through train yards as they were slamming on the CBGB dance floor.

SIT N' SPIN • THE CARVELS
CID SCANTLEBURYDONUT CITY

With three full-length albums, countless singles, compilations and American and Euro tours under their collective belt, Sit N' Spin have been praised by the press and gained fans all over the world, including Tokyo's 5678s and BBC Radio's legendary DJ John Peel (R.I.P.). While comparisons have been made to artists such as The Ramones, The Ronettes and Link Wray, Sit n' Spin do what they did best—made music that combined the best of garage-rock and roots-rock with their own personal brand of wit. The band got its start in New Brunswick, NJ where there was a good venue, a good record store and a college radio station to nurse their nascent rock ideas. Crisply melding a sense of fun with focus, they put forth garage-pop with edge and substance, deftly commingling crunch and melody.

Get Some Action


MIGHTY FINE
LES SANS CULOTTESTHE MISSING FOOTAGE

After touring most of the world with The Afghan Whigs, future Mighty Fine singer Steve Myers returned home only to get shot and left for dead on a rainy New Orleans street. Myers moved to New York City to recover and try to put his past behind him, joining the Dulli lead Twilight Singers occasionally for shows on the East Coast or recording down South. Not until hooking up with fellow New Orleanian Jagon Eldridge in late 2003 did he think about starting a band of his own. The original line-up for Mighty Fine consist of Jagon Eldrige and Richie Pomerantz (Andy G & The Roller Kings), Mitro Valsamis (Trickbabys) and Paul Verciglio. For the last ten years Mighty Fine has rocked all over NY state, sharing the stage with TV On The Radio, Andre Williams, The Dirtbombs, The Slackers, Titus Andronicus, The Gories, Mary Weiss, and The Afghan Whigs. After releasing the album Get Up To Get Down on Drugfront Records in late 2011 (that included guest spots by Greg Dulli and Mick Collins), the band went thru several lineup changes including a UK tour lineup that included Collins on guitar. After taking some time to regroup Mighty Fine is back to what it does best, playing punk-soul all over NY state, now with new members Bradley Dean (The Visitors) on guitar and Mickey Finn (Boss Hog) on keys. "Sweaty rump-shakin' punk-soul" is a great way to describe the band, a combination of a James Brown styled soul review and a sweaty punk rock show. In this band, New York and New Orleans meet at the crossroads and no one moves an inch.

R. of the legendary Bad Brains and many more. Joecephus and company are ready for full auditory assault in any venue that can take it.

All JGJM's profits of sales from this lp went to local Memphis animal rescue, The Savior Foundation.
