Now is your chance to snag a Deluxe Limited Edition Double LP of Good Riddance’s very last release, Remain In Memory: The Final Show. We only pressed 1100, and we will not repress this! Each record is colored vinyl with hand-numbered gatefold jackets, including an 11×11 full color, 56 page Good Riddance photo history book.
Remain In Memory is a live recording of Good Riddance‘s final show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, California on May 27th, 2007. The set list reads more like a greatest hits album, mixing the best of the band’s 12+ year career and touching on favorites from each of their seven full lengths, EPs, and 7"s on Fat, plus a couple of rarities. Order your copy here while supplies last!
NOFX will be heading South to dry out (we’re talking weather, not booze here, don’t worry) during the winter months of January and February. They will play a smattering of shows throughout Nevada, Arizona and California. More dates, support bands & some exciting news all announced soon, but for now here’s what we’ve got cookin’:

Dead To Me, Little Brother
This new five song EP from Dead To Me fills the tall order of surpassing the lofty expectations set by the band’s critically acclaimed first full length Cuban Ballerina. Little Brother showcases unforgettable melodies earnestly belted out by the dueling lead vocals of Jack and Chicken along with a sophisticated stylistic diversity that displays the band’s maturation and songwriting prowess. Bold, vivid album art designed by the band completes this pretty package.
Swingin’ Utters, Hatest Grits: B-Sides And Bullshit
San Francisco’s biggest and best punk band, the Swingin’ Utters, have returned to set the scene with their latest release, Hatest Grits: B-Sides And Bullshit. Where other bands have made a mockery of street punk with their corny gimmicks and posturing, the Utters deliver music brimming with the passion and desperation the genre is known for. Hatest Grits is a collection of rare 7" singles, b-sides, album outtakes, compilation songs and covers, including nine previously unreleased tracks (and a few surprises). Insert includes liner notes on each song from band members past & present and tons of old photos.
See them live in Texas:
11/08/08 Austin, TX at Fun Fun Fun Fest @ Waterloo Park w/ Cro-Mags, Krum Bums, Bitter End
