Lance Hahn of J Church (1967-2007)

We are very sad to report that Lance Hahn from J Church has passed away. Fat was very lucky to have known Lance as a friend and for the opportunity to release records with J Church. Our condolences go out to Lance’s family and friends. He will be greatly missed. His longtime girlfriend, Liberty, posted this news to his personal Myspace page:

“i’m so sorry to say, Lance Hahn passed away earlier this afternoon. he had been in a coma since collapsing at dialysis on friday, october 12th.

as far as the doctors can tell, this collapse was due to a sudden, drastic drop in blood pressure, which in turn was probably caused by a recurrence of the infection he had had in september combined with the stress of dialysis. he received immediate cpr from medical professionals at the dialysis center, but as it took fifteen or twenty minutes to resuscitate him, he suffered neurological damage from lack of oxygen to the brain, leaving him in a coma from which he never returned.

i can’t even begin to tell you how much he will be missed. he is much, much loved."

FAT CLASSIC COLORED VINYL SERIES!!! LAGWAGON DUH LP RE-PRESS ON PURPLE VINYL OUT NOW

This is the first title to be re-pressed in the Fat Classic Colored Vinyl Series. *Lagwagon*’s Duh originally made it’s debut in October of 1992 when the label was still run out of Fat Mike’s garage. We’re doing a limited re-press of 524 copies on purple vinyl. Here’s an update from singer Joey Cape about the recording of this classic Fat release…

“Back then, we were inexperienced in the studio. It was less about the recording process and more about rehearsing. We recorded and mixed Duh in 4 days. There’s something to be said for a budget. You have to have your shit together before you go into the studio and the end result is a record that better reflects the band’s sound at the time. I think that’s why so many band’s first records are considered to be their best. Personally, I don’t think Duh was our best though.”

Next up is The Longest Line on Peruvian white vinyl.

American Steel Destroy Their Future CD/LP out now!

American Steel‘s brand new record, Destroy Their Future, comes out today! The new album marks the triumphant return of these adored East Bay / Gilman scene punks. Twelve soulful songs with their signature cultured lyrics that are a perfect amalgam of the band’s previous albums Rogues’ March and Jagged Thoughts_. For a limited time (while supplies last) we will have autographed copies of the CD available to our mailorder and online customers and we just posted the 2nd free song, “Dead and Gone”, in our mp3 section. The band is about to embark on the 8th Annual Unbelievable Self-Indulgence Festartist/89 which is a giant US tour with the Lawrence Arms. They’re even going to play on a BOAT one night! I’m sure if you pulled off a pretty kind cannonball they’d give you a free t-shirt you could wear while being gaffed out of the Hudson and then promptly arrested.
