What are our friends up to?

We have friends all over and they do amazing shit too! Check out these peeps who are totally down with the Mooster Records fam!

Our bud Travis in South Carolina has an amazing label! ECCENTRIC POP RECORDS

Their latest release was a flashback for me. Sweet Baby "It's A Girl" reissue LP

Pre-Order! Records will ship on or before April 7th!
This is a one-time pressing on pink vinyl, limited to 500 copies!
Formed in Berkeley, California in 1986, Sweet Baby (and their contemporaries Operation Ivy, Crimpshrine, the Mr. T Experience, etc) played a seminal role in the earliest days of the Gilman Street punk scene. Many credit Sweet Baby with inventing an entirely new genre of music – one which melds the harmonic pop sensibilities of the Beatles and the Everly Brothers with the frenetic four-on-the-floor song structures of the Ramones and the Buzzcocks. It's a genre that came to be called “pop punk,” and it’s a genre that Sweet Baby defined and perfected years before anyone else.
Out of print on vinyl for over twenty years, Sweet Baby’s “It’s A Girl” LP has attained a cult-like following and has influenced virtually every pop-leaning punk band of the last two decades. Eccentric Pop Records is beyond stoked to (finally!) offer this limited edition reissue pressing – featuring completely remastered audio and pressed on pink vinyl, this album has never looked or sounded better!!!


 JOLLY RONNIE RECORDS and Ryan is another awesome friend and label in Texas. The one time he was in Chicago I took him and his family to the wrong hot dog place. Jolly Ronnie put out an amazing record by THE SPASTIC HEARTS from OHIO(home of the working man)!

KEXP Presents: JEFF The Brotherhood

Beat the Champ is about professional wrestling, which was an avenue of escape for me when I was a kid. Wrestling was low-budget working class entertainment back then, strictly UHF material. It was cheap theater. You had to bring your imagination to the proceedings and you got paid back double. I wrote these songs to re-immerse myself in the blood and fire of the visions that spoke to me as a child, and to see what more there might be in them now that I'm grown.
