THIS IS FLORENCE
7" EP

The Hermi House was a killer venue, next to downtown Florence, Alabama, and in the basement bands played and recorded. It was here that Nathan Ruffrage (discontent) organized a show with four local bands, The Wednesdays, Random Conflict, oOfset, and Liberation by Blood, recorded it (with the help of Willie Cardin) and released a live 7" of the evening with the money made at the door.

THE QUADRAJETS
IF THE GOOD LORD'S WILLIN' AND THE CREEK DON'T RISE - CD

From Auburn, Alabama, these guys toured heavily throughout the 90's, released a handful of full-length records on most of the popular garage labels at the time. This release was originally a tour only record, with alternate versions of earlier material, as well as a number of acoustic songs, Gospel songs, and brand new unreleased songs. The bulk of this was recorded in Opelika, Alabama by Lynn Bridges and Jamie "Spazz" Uertz at Sarcophagus Studios # 4

THE WEDNESDAYS
LIVE IN AN ALABAMA PRISON

The band played a couple of shows at the Stanton Draper Correctional Facility, outside of Montgomery, Alabama. It was amazing. I remember the van broke down in the prison parking lot, pushing it in the rain and the midnight light of the guard towers, trying to get the engine to come alive... There was no security, just a warning to "...not wear anything white, in case of a riot, because the tower guards will shoot anyone wearing white immediately..." The crowd was attentive and sweet, and very emotional. The opening band were all prisoners, all black gospel soul music, and by far the best band I have ever seen. There are two printed covers for this. The first two hundred are xeroxed, the last 300 are screen printed on chipboard.

THE 3Ds
YOUR HEART IS BLACK
 

Lo-fi garage from Huntsville, Alabama, a cool band that mixed the choas/noise of Hendrix with surf guitars. All of these guys went to do other bands. Each record came with a pair of 3-D glasses! Joey Tacon, who played with the Toxic Shocks and also the Slackers (an amazing punk band from the early 90's) started this band...this record was released when Joey was still the lead vocalist. Later 3-D releases had Matt Bakula (Counter Clockwise, the Crypt Kickers, the Pine Hill Haints) on the vocals.

KARLOFF 2056
7" EP

A short-lived band, from Auburn, Alabama, who played various house parties (The Inbred House, The Malformity House, The Ross Street House, etc) and maybe lasted 2 years. Fast, horror, pop, garage, with a little Hendrix in the dead eyes. Lots of these songs were Wednesdays songs that hadn't been used...some of these songs still appear in Pine Hill Haints shows.

DISCONTENT
7" EP

Debut from this Florence, Alabama hard-core outfit. This band was very influential to a lot of kids in the late 90's. They toured heavily and played often, put on many shows for other bands, cooked a million meals, etc. They went on to record and release a cassette, which to my knowledge there are no remaining copies of, and they also did a split 7" with an Atlanta label. This record contains 4 songs...with the original line up, consisting of two lead singers. They had a very dynamic live show. 500 pressed.
