Today we have the Atlanta band Gold-Bears covering the Tullycraft song “Skyway.” Enjoy!
Today we have the Tullycraft song, “Wild Bikini” performed by both Hotpants Romance and The Saltine Crack Whores. Enjoy!
When the Crayon album, Brick Factory, was reissued on vinyl a few months back, it included a digital download which comprised 21 bonus songs. Today we are posting one of those bonus songs. “This Dream is Gone” originally appeared on a split single with the Ann Arbor, Michigan band, Veronica Lake. This 7″ was released on Cher Doll Records in January 1993. I like this song, and I always sorta wished we would have included it on the Brick Factory album. Out of print and lost for nearly 20 years, here is the song “This Dream is Gone” by Crayon.
If you’re interested in owning Brick Factory on vinyl there are still a few copies available from HHBTM Records (includes digital download w/ 21 bonus tracks).
Today we have the Tullycraft song, “Superboy & Supergirl” performed by both The Manhattan Love Suicides and Math and Physics Club. Enjoy!
This is another poster Chris and I discovered when we were cleaning out the old practice space. I don’t recall much about this night. I do remember that shortly before this show Tullycraft recorded a cover of the Jonathan Richman song “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor” at a small studio in Seattle. It was a last minute idea, and we tracked the song live in a single take. This show at the Rendezvous was the only time we ever performed that song in public. I don’t think it went over very well, maybe it was too slow for a Saturday night crowd? I’m not sure why we never attempted to play it again. I guess it just fell through the cracks. Anyway, the Tullycraft recording of “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor” eventually appeared on the Friendly Society compilation in 1998 – which ended up being the last record released by Harriet Records. One thing I do remember about this show is that Incredible Force of Junior was much better than the other three bands on the bill. They ruled the night!
Here is the song “Kid Champion” by Incredible Force of Junior
… and if you’re curious, here is the Tullycraft version of “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor.” (This song also appeared on The Singles – a b-sides, rarities and early singles compilation released on Darla Records in 1999.)
On February 28, 1995, Tullycraft played their very first show at a small club in Seattle called Re-Bar. It was a Tuesday and there weren’t many people in attendance that evening, but among them was Jeff Smith from the pre-Mudhoney band Mr. Epp & the Calculations. Jeff ended up writing a review of the show in a zine he published at the time called Feminist Baseball (see review below).
Also on the bill that evening were the bands Incredible Force of Junior and Sno*Boy. Ironically, Chris (from IFOJ) and Harold (from Sno*Boy) would both eventually join Tullycraft. Chris is still in the band today. Here is a live recording of the song “Mental Obsession” from that fateful night. Enjoy.
