PRF West Coast 2014 Schedule

And Lo! Did there come a time where the Aluminum hordes did descend upon the ancestral home of the Black Panthers, the Hell’s Angels, hippies, Philip K. Dick, Sly and the Family Stone, the Dead Kennedys, Flipper, Twitter and Artisanal toast. And yes! These self same hordes did look about at the talent and strength of character about them and say: “yes, this is good.”

Thus were the times of good rewritten with a new chapter.

It’s happening folks.

Radiant Republic by Mr. King

RADIANT REPUBLIC Three Against Four LP/CD out 10/29/13!

Greetings! Just a friendly reminder that Chicago’s Radiant Republic has a new LP available (with a CD included) called “Three Against Four”. Yes, it is a time signature reference, but has other meanings as well. Anyway, the live band version of Radiant Republic (of Texas) grew out of a performance at the 2011 BBQ at the Observatory and these songs have been in the works since then. It was recorded with Jon San Paolo (badass) at a new studio co-owned by Mike McCutcheon (badass) called Burn the Furniture in February of 2013. We mastered it with Bob Weston (badass) and released it on Sick Room Records owned by Ryan Duncan (badass). Andy Rench (badass) of Blank Banker did the artwork. That’s a lot of badass name droppin’ there!

In all sincerity, this album required a shit ton of effort and money and we did it in a non crowd source-y way, so hopefully you give it a chance. You can order it from Sick Room or buy a digital version from Bandcamp. It’s also available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
