Thank You, San Francisco!
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Smart Guy)
17,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Thank You, San Francisco! is an eleven-track compilation of exclusive recordings from artists that left an indelible impression on SmartGuy Records over the years. You may note that there is only one San Francisco based “band” represented in the work. While not by design this seems fitting, as we think it’s better to highlight some of the wide array of artists that came to San Francisco as opposed to a record of local artists. Adding to the overall quality of life in The City came with no prerequisite of residency after all. As we see it there is no other City that could draw such a stylistically diverse group of musicians and that my friend is something to celebrate.Features Dan Melchior (with an homage to Les Rallies Denude), David West (Rat Columns, Total Control, Rank / Xerox, Lace Curtain), Out With A Bang (hardcore band from Verona, Italy), Kelley Stoltz, Pleasure Leftists, CTMF (Billy Childish), Pate Snot (James Vinciguerra & Mikey Young of Total Control & Lace Curtain), Leon Stackpole (Ooga Boogas), Bill Direen, Ludella Black & The Masonics, and Clorox Girls. Includes an insert with essays by Jack Rabid and Sam Lefebvre.

Genre:Rock / Indie
RAT COLUMNS is a trio from San Francisco, California that generates dark, ill-fit- ting pop wanderings, introspective jangle and chime, mangled noises and various points between. The band was started by DAVID WEST (RANK/XEROS, BURNING SENSATION) in the isolated environs of Perth, Western Australia, and following a move to the northern hemisphere the trio format was happened upon with the addition of drummer/guitarist MATT BLEYLE (VIOLENT CHANGE, SPOONS, ABI YOYOS) and bassist JON YOUNG. The three recorded the LP Sceptre Hole in the second half of 2011. As on the previous four-song 7" (SmartGuy Records, 2011), JAMES VINCIGUERRA (TOTAL CONTROL, SOVIET VALVES, AIDS) contributed some drums to the effort. Sure, Sceptre Hole flies closer in to the pop sun than before, but it also keeps a toe in the murky waters of guitar noise and dour ambience.
