A big thank you to all who came out to see us Saturday night for the 25th year reunion show! It was great to see you all and we hope to do it all again sometime soon. So stay tuned…
You may have noticed that this is a new website (then again, maybe you haven’t). So if things are a bit wonky or incomplete they should be sorted out soon. Welcome to the 90’s!
The crash version of the Replacements’ song “Achin’ to Be” was released on the Facedown Records tribute CD, Left of the Dial: a Pop Tribute to the Replacements. You can hear the tune on Spotify. Or better yet, buy the CD at Amazon or CDBaby.
Crash tracked “Crank” for the Catherine Wheel tribute CD called Too Much is Not Enough – The Catherine Wheel Cover Compilation. Stay tuned for release info.
crash worked up a mock commercial jingle called “Top Popsicles” for The New Sell Out – A Tribute to The Who, released by Futureman Records. Other bands featured on the disc include The Shazam, BMX Bandits, Mitch Easter, Jim Babjak (Smithereens). Our track is part of the Commercial Jingle, track 24.
“I Forgot,” track 3 on the debut CD, from blind to blue, appears on a compilation CD, titled Hit the Hay Vol. 4, that was released by Swedish label Sound Asleep Records. Sound Asleep boss Jerker Emanuelson lined up an impressive list of artists for this CD including Will Rigby (ex-db’s), Ron Flynt (ex-20/20) and Tom Stevens (ex-Long Ryders), just to name a few. Needless to say, it is a treat for crash to be included on a compilation with such legendary musicians.
An alternate version of the song “Wave” from from blind to blue is featured on a CD sampler being distributed free with the Spring issue of Pop Culture Press magazine.
“Breakthrough,” a track off the crash full-length release Another Vivid Scene, appears on a sampler CD sponsored by Dewars and Oasis CD Manufacturing called “Dewars Rocks Atlanta 2002” to be released at the Atlantis Music Conference 2002. Sponsored by Dewars, Oasis and Sonicbids, this CD features 19 Sonicbids artists and was given to all attendants of the Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta.
crash, with friend Neilson Hubbard, recorded the song, “Winter,” from Teenage Fanclub’s 1997 release, Songs From Northern Britain, for this fine tribute album – What a Concept: A Salute to Teenage Fanclub. Neilson produced and lent his musical talents. The US label that released the disc is Not Lame Records. The salute has also been released on labels in Spain (Houston Party Records) and Japan (Wizzard In Vinyl).
Other artists contributing songs include Gigolo Aunts, Superdrag, Redd Kross and The Shazam.
