The Radio - Ganbare!

By dave

So a new batch of slackers' tunes is coming out! This time its all covers, some obvious choices, some surprises...all are played with love and respect. This ain't supposed to be ironic. I think Vic really believes he's 'like a virgin.'

So the tunes are coming out in several different formats. First off, the tunes are coming out in cd format in Japan, the release is called, 'Gambare' and is out now on Ska in the World Records!

What's Ganbare you ask? It means roughly 'do your best' in Japan and its named after one of the covers, a version of 'ganbare' by the Blue Hearts, a Japanese pop-punk band.

In the USA we got the tunes coming out on Whatevski.org. They are going to be doing vinyl, cd, and digital versions of the album. They are going to be starting a kickstarter campaign shortly to get the word out. This version of the tunes is called 'the radio' after a mix that Whatevski creator, Tom Gibbons, has been putting together over the last few weeks. To get more info go to www.whatevski.org

Don't think that we've forgotten the rest of the world as well, whatevski can take orders from all over the world (europe, latin america etc) and can get you what you need! After 'the radio' has been in production for a little while we should have a limited number of physical copies at the merch table as well.

Summer with the Slack

By dave

Hi everyone,

summertime and the slackers are just starting to stir from our post
europe/nyc-bowery ballroom vacation. We have been working on
finishing cover tracks for upcoming releases in Japan and for the
download label, Whatevski.org. For Japan on the Ska In the World
Label, we are releasing a cd and 45, called 'Ganbare.' For Whatevski,
we will be releasing a digital download tenatively titled, 'slackers
radio.' Both versions are going to have some overlap in terms of songs
but each will still have a couple things different. They both should
be coming out around the end of the summer.

As mid-July rolls around we are going to start gigging again. First up
will be Newport, RI and then Long Branch, NJ.

Then we are doing a lightning quick southern california weekend. Highlights will be a free show on the Santa Monica Pier, a house of blues appearance in anaheim, and the casbah in San Diego.

We come back to our annual booze cruises. I think we've been doing NYC for around 8-9 years now. This will be our 3rd time in Boston.

And then we are off again as the summer winds down and we get into fall. In one of our craziest routings, we will be doing back-to-back, Japan, the Pacific Northwest, and then Alberta, Canada. Later on in the fall, we will be doing a sustained run of the midwest and eastern canada.

See you out there! Much love to everyone. Its been a great 20th year so far.
