Eureka California!


I’ve been really digging the new Eureka California record released on HHBTM Records!

Check out the terrific song “Cobwebs on the Wind” from their new album Versus.

Unreleased Tullycraft Song


During the summer of 2012 Tullycraft recorded 13 songs. Eleven of those songs ended up on the ‘Lost in Light Rotation’ album. The twelfth song, “Bad Connection,” appeared on the B-side of the “Lost in Light Rotation” 7 inch single. The thirteenth song, “Touch Me, I’m Sick (Over You)” was never released. We thought about including this track on the ‘Lost in Light Rotation’ album, but we decided that it didn’t sound like it fit with the other songs on the record. So… for the past few years it’s been sitting on a hard drive. As a Christmas treat, here is the previously unreleased song, “Touch Me, I’m Sick (Over You).” Happy Holidays!

On this day…


On this day in 1996 Tullycraft spent the afternoon at Disneyland. That evening we played a few songs on KUCI at the University of California at Irvine. Here is a chaotic live recording of the song “Pop Songs Your New Boyfriend’s Too Stupid To Know About” featuring additional vocals by Jen and Sarah from the L.A. band Rizzo.

Yoyo a Gogo 1994

yoyo a gogo tae won yu

On this day in 1994 the Yoyo a Gogo festival began in Olympia, WA. Curated by Pat Maley, the festival featured five days of music by an incredible lineup of artists including: Beck, Jad Fair, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Halo Benders, Lois Maffeo, Some Velvet Sidewalk, Built to Spill, New Bad Things, The Softies, Rancid, Cub, The Crabs, Girl Trouble, Bunnygrunt, Yo La Tengo, The Spinanes, Mecca Normal, Crayon, Go Sailor, Heavens to Betsy, Unwound, Team Dresch, Kicking Giant and many more!

It was totally punk and 100% independent – nothing like the corporate music festivals that pretend to be “punk” today. It was truly an amazing event.

Here is a homemade video which includes some great footage of many of the bands at the festival. For some reason, this video features the terrible Jefferson Starship song, “We Built This City.” (Crayon appears briefly at the 2:38 mark). Enjoy!

Burlington, Vermont


On this day in 1994 Crayon and The Softies were on tour together in Burlington, Vermont. While washing our clothes at a local Laundromat, we were greeted by an east coast rain storm. During this unusually heavy downpour, Rose and Jen (The Softies) took shelter in the Crayon tour van and wrote a song called “Empty Patches.” Here is a live recording of that song performed at the Yoyo-a-Gogo festival in Olympia a couple weeks later.

Also, here is a live recording of Crayon performing “The Snap-Tight Wars” at the Burlington, Vermont show.
