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” Washout Corporation – “Replacement Material” My Dad Is Dead – “Nothing Special” Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments – “Petty Thief” Girly Machine – “With You” Scrawl – “Believe” Brainiac – “F***ing with the Altimeter” Pretty Mighty Mighty – “Antigone” Geraldine – “K-Tel Whore” Mike Rep & The Quotas – “Creature with the Atom Brain”
Since 2004, Aquabear Legion has served to promote and support Ohio music and art and has been run by founders Brian Koscho and Todd Jacops since then. With 17 releases (mostly compilations from over the years) since then on vinyl, cd, tape, and digital, AquabearÂ comes into 2021 ready to make two more (new) archival compilations. We also have some awesome new merchandise with art from our good friend Matthew Presutti to help make that happen. Aquabear Legion is a labor of love and long-time passion for Brian and Todd. These pre-orders serve as a way to make these projects happen and also to help cover the Legion’s minimal annual expenses to exist.
