Refused - Freedom

Refused - Freedom

New CD: $16.99   $13.99
Refused came to an end in front of 50 kids at a basement show in a Virginia college town in 1998, just as their release of the same year, The Shape of Punk to Come, was taking its first steps toward becoming an acknowledged classic and a massive influence on a generation of bands. Refused Are Fucking Dead! became the slogan, as kids discovered Shape and its breakout track New Noise only to find their new heroes disbanded.

Jb & The Moonshine Band - Mixtape

New CD: $12.98
East Texas Country Outfit JB & The Moonshine Band was born in 2009 when singer/songwriter JB Patterson decided to give up on his advertising career and start a band. When JB coordinated and open call audition in Tyler, TX, only three people showed up. He might have been disappointed in the lack of response, but when he heard them play, he realized that he couldn't have hand-picked a better band himself. The four became JB & The Moonshine Band, comprised of drummer Gabe Guevara, guitarist Hayden McMullen, bassist Chris Flores, and lead singer JB Patterson on banjo and guitar. They immediately threw together a PA, rented a UHaul van, and started taking gigs throughout east Texas.

The tour promoted the recent 'It's Hard' album, which had been released in June 1982, and the set list included a number of tracks from that album, some of which the band would only play live on this tour. This concert film features the show from the second of their two nights at New York's Shea Stadium and was filmed on October 13th 1982. Although a couple of tracks have appeared on compilations, this is the first official release of the full show and features restored footage and newly mixed sound.
