We first saw Girl Trouble at the now-legendary “Four Bands, Four Bucks” HUB Ballroom show at the UW Campus in February 1989. The bass player had really long hair, looked like a Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone hybrid, and was wearing brown corduroy pants. The guitar player was wearing a Jughead Jones hat and Cousin It was on drums. Some dude who could’ve been Fred Gwynn’s son was singing; to make matters worse (or better, depending on how you look at it) took his shirt off midway through the set and showed people what it’s like. How many gigs from almost 25 years ago can you remember what the band members were wearing?

They made an impression on me. The Giggles had seen them play before at a party somewhere in the Kitsap Peninsula (which Girl Trouble could kill at just as easily as in front of hundreds of hipsters at the University of Washington). They have the enviable gift to work in just about any type of situation.

Not long after that show, I bought the Hit It Or Quit It LP. It was the beginning of what has been a string of five consecutive consistently great albums, along with the other EPs, singles and compilations. You’d be hard pressed to find another band capable of pulling off what Girl Trouble has done over the past 25+ years. Just recently, they debuted a new song called “Blood Makes The Grass Grow”. I told them it sounds like a Girl Trouble song. That’s a good thing. “She No Rattle My Cage”, “Bring on The Dancing Girls” and  “Strictly Sacred” don’t sound anything alike… but they sound like Girl Trouble songs. They have their own distinct sound and style, another enviable trait for any band to have.

So though the purpose of this show is to celebrate the re-release of their 1988 debut LP, it could just as easily be for any of the records in their catalog, and most likely for all the ones to come in the future.

God Bless Girl Trouble and all they stand for.

Today!

Amazing show at Gonerfest 10. 19 songs in 30 minutes. People seemed to dig it.  
Thanks again to Zac, Eric and the whole Goner crew for letting us do it up.

Now off to Comcast to replace the broken DVR that lost all my Bob Newhart Show re-runs I had taped.

Tonight!

Went to United Record Pressing in Nashville. Apparently they press other records besides ours. Go figure. Heading to Memphis for our rock concert tonight at the Hi-Tone as part of Gonerfest 10. See you there!
