The Western Reserve – An Archival Celebration – Episode 041

This brand new episode of The Western Reserve (which non coincidently times up with me being off from school) celebrates the two brand new Aquabear Legion archival releases that are coming up with a whole bunch of music from before 2004. Seriously though, pre-order the new comps now at igg.me/at/aquabear2021, do it before June 5th when the Indidegogo ends. Downloads come with everything, even stickers and shirts. Aquabear hit the goal (yay!) but the more $$$ we raise, the more cool stuff we can keep making. We play songs from both of those releases (which, hey, again, you can order here) and a whole bunch of other stuff too. All before 2004: Kelley Deal, Washout Corporation, Brainiac, Mike Rep & The Quotas, Girly Machine, and more. Enjoy!

Kelley Deal – “In My Room”
Necropolis – “Ex-Mortis”
The Spiveys – “Stinky’s Theme”
Gourdo – “Fast G” or “Bloodfinger”
