I am excited to announce the 2017 remaster of the now classic Pennylane ep “From Paradise To Parking Lots” is finally here. Go download it off the IVM Bandcamp page/ for Free here. All 5 tracks and Intro have been carefully remastered by Sef Idle over at Simpul Studio from the original recording. Fans of Acceptance, Jimmy Eat World, Thrice, Armor For Sleep, and Taking Back Sunday will find something to appreciate about the early 00’s music of Pennylane. In addition to this free download, I am also thrilled to announce that I have decided to do a very limited run of this ep on Cassette Tape in Red. You can preorder the cassette which will have completely redone artwork and layout just for this release. Thanks to Ed Jervis of InPresence Records for the new design. New Pennylane news coming soon so keep following our page/site over the coming months. Listen/stream/download the ep, below. Continued →

Yep, the list you’ve all been waiting for (not really) is finally here. Feel free to offer up some laughs and critical remarks for the music I listened to the most 20 years ago. You’ll notice a heavy T&N presence and I just couldn’t help myself. There were a lot of albums and releases I found myself spinning back then and still getting plays today. I think that’s where this list falls in place, it’s the albums that had the longest lasting impact with me and had a catchy sound that I just couldn’t get enough of. I ride more on the commercial, melodic side of the market rather than all that arty ear splitting noise rock ;) I created a special Spotify play list that you can find near the end of the article. Some of these titles are out of print and only available in YouTube form so enjoy those unheard hits within the article. Remember kids, “some” of these releases may not have the best language so if you get queasy at the thought of dirty words from the general market (do we still use the word ‘secular’?) bands, you may want to skip those parts. So check out my faves below and don’t forget to check out “The Best of 2007” list which can be found here. Hop in your time machine and let’s get ready to party like its 1997! Continued →
