CJ Ramone & Chris Cresswell out today!

We love October! Why? Well that’s when we get our summer here in San Francisco, so it’s beer-drinkin’ weather (though really, what weather isn’t?!). Plus, Fest is just around the corner, our scrappy hometown baseball club is overachieving again, we just debuted incredible new Lagwagon and Swingin’ Utters songs, and we’ve released two very different but equally killer records.

First up, CJ Ramone’s debut release on Fat, Understand Me? The title track is culled from his upcoming full-length Last Chance to Dance November 25th—and the exclusive b-side is a cover of Black Flag’s “Rise Above,” featuring guitar and background vocals by Dez Cadena of Black Flack and the Misfits. Thanks to all of you, we’ve already sold out of the first pressing! So you’ll have to wait a bit to get your hands on a copy if you haven’t already. For now, you can still listen to Understand Me?

Next, we have the vinyl edition of the first solo effort from Chris Cresswell of The Flatliners that first appeared digitally via One Week Records. These ten acoustic songs showcase an introspective prowess, displaying Chris Cresswell’s versatility as a songwriter. Proof, as they say, is in the pudding, so do yourself a favor and listen to Meet Me in the Shade. Then, order your copy today!
