Punk legend and X co-founder John Doe has spent decades building a career that spans across various genres and even formats, with dozens of acting credits in fi lm and TV. Particle Kid is the musical identity of singer-songwriter, musician, and visual artist Micah Nelson, who - despite his young age - has an equally impressive resume. The two have played together at Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion festival and the iconic Pappy & Harriet's in Joshua Tree, CA, as well as sharing the stage for a tribute to The Doors at the Founders Award ceremony.
On this split release, the two artists cover each others' tunes with their own interpretation. As a bonus, John Doe covers a Carter Family favorite, and Particle Kid covers outsider folk hero Michael Hurley. The release is mastered at 45RPM and pressed on a 12'' gold color LP, exclusively for Black Friday.

We are very excited to tell you that on JUNE 22nd we're not only releasing the epic soundtrack to this crucial East Bay Punk documentary but we're also releasing the film itself on a Blu Ray+DVD combo pack and you can order both right now by CLICKING HERE!
The Blu Ray+DVD features the full-length theatrical cut of the film (2 hours and 37 minutes), 5 Deleted Scenes and more! Narrated by Iggy Pop, Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk features a diverse spectrum of musicians and artists who have all been impacted by or participated in the California San Francisco Bay Area punk music scene of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. During the production of the film, over 150 interviews were conducted around the United States amounting in over 500 hours of interview footage. Numerous underground punk legends appear in the film together with the top-selling artists of the punk genre. Non-punk artists in reggae, garage and experimental music are featured, and actors, film directors, authors, activists and graphic artists are also interviewed throughout the film.
On the soundtrack from we've got a very special Gold Vinyl mail order only edition of the 35 song soundtrack featuring rare, unreleased and hard to find tracks from bands like Green Day, Rancid, Operation Ivy, Neurosis, MTX, Jawbreaker, Crimpshrine, Sweet Children, Pinhead Gunpowder and many more. It's over 90 minutes of music on 2 LP's housed in a gatefold sleeve. The full track list is available HERE.
Even more limited is the double cassette edition that not only contains the same material as the 2xLP but we've added a very special repress of the "Lest We Forget" compilation as a companion piece. Lest We Forget was assembled by Aaron Cometbus from extremely rare demos, rehearsal & live tapes and originally released on his BBT Tapes label in 1991. This compilation provides a crucial document of the East Bay's pre-Gilman punk scene. Including the original bands of members who would go on to spawn; Rancid, Operation Ivy, Pinhead Gunpowder, Samiam, Neurosis amongst many others. We've teamed up with BBT Tapes to repress this essential document of early East Bay punk with new liner notes by Cometbus and freshly cleaned up audio on a professionally dubbed tape for the first time ever!
Proceeds from these soundtrack releases go to the Women's Daytime Drop In Center, a non-profit program in Berkeley, CA empowering women and children to move from the streets to a home by providing ongoing and intensive counseling, case management services, daily support groups, a comprehensive children’s program, a variety of referral services, and a transitional housing program for four single parent families.
Both locations, every hour we're open! We want your Vinyl, Tapes (including 8-Tracks) and to a lesser extent your CDs! Bring them down for cash or trade. We consistently pay better than the big stores so come see about us when you start your spring cleaning!
