Alright folks! This is it, the end of the line on these announcements for the HEAD tribute album. It’s time for the artwork reveal with a bonus announcement of all of the bands that recorded a song for the digital bonus songs. The Lp has 24 songs on it and with the 5 digital bonus bands you’re looking at 29 covers total from 29 killer bands from around the world. Now as far as those bonus bands go, we’re looking at the following bands.

The Tarleks
The Merinuks
Hateful Julie
The Damones
Black Russians

How about that artwork? It was done by none other than the super talented Jake Sauer. We’re gonna throw up a preorder on Monday 8/26 that will run until Monday 9/2. This will be the time to get your color vinyl or a collector nerd bundle, the color vinyl is limited to 100 copies of each and they will surely go quickly.

Thanks to all of the bands involved and to our partners in crime over at I Buy Records for doing all of these fun announcements for us.

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents The Manges

This is it, this is the end of the band announcements for the HEAD tribute album, this is the 24th band that were announcing that made it to the Lp. That’s right, 24 bands on a 12” Lp compilation. All of them are killer, there’s no filler to be found here on the HEAD tribute comp. if you heard last years tribute album to the Manges, then you know exactly what to expect from this one.

Speaking of the Manges, they are the final band that we’d like to announce for the HEAD tribute album. Of course you know that these guys are legendary and have been one of the best punk rock bands running on the planet for decades now. They’re also huge fans of HEAD, check out the Florida Ep if you want some more info on that. It made perfect sense to ask the Manges first to be on the HEAD tribute comp. Their contribution is awesome and once again we’re honored to be able to work with them on something.

Here is what they had to say about HEAD “HEAD! I’m your biggest fan, please reply to my letter. I wrote to your po box, please reply to my letter. I like bmx bikes and US flags, I’m from Seattle and Disneyland, applied for a job at Letterman’s

That’s pretty catchy huh? Their cover of “Senor Itchy” will blow your mind as will the other 23 contributions on the Lp. Stay tuned next week for the digital bonus band announcements and the big artwork reveal.

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Neon Bone

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for another band announcement for the HEAD tribute! This is the second to last band to be announced so I wanted to save a band that’s near and dear to our heads here at Mom’s Basement Records. Of course we’re talking about Neon Bone from Munster, Germany. Not only are Gumbo and the gang one of the best punk rock bands in Europe, he is also an integral part of this record label. Gumbo does all of our ads and most of our Lp inserts amongst other cool stuff so we had to have him involved.

Here’s what gumbo had to say about HEAD and his song choice.

They didn’t want to stay at my place when I booked a show for them in my hometown so I picked “The Sissy” for my cover, LoL

Wow! How scandalous! There’s only one more band to announce so be sure to check us out on Friday afternoon at the usual time!

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Ratcliffs

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s announcement time. We’re very pleased to tell you that the Ratcliffs from Austria have recorded a killer cover for the HEAD tribute. I’m a huge fan of these dudes and their latest album “Hell Mental” is a must have so head over to the I Buy Records webstore and pick that bad boy up. .

Here’s what the guys have to say about: “Our entire existence orbits around HEAD and their spiritual teachings. We have been following them for at least forty years if not even longer. Hence, we feel beyond delighted to pay homage to this formidable squadron of merry-men and pranksters. Aloha

HEAD Tribute Album – Mom’s Basement Records presents Volkov

Alright everyone! It’s time for another week of HEAD tribute bane announcements. This time we’re pleased to announce that Volkov is on the HEAD tribute. They’ve been with the Mom’s Basement Records since the beginning so you had to know that they were gonna be on there. They just released a brand new full length Fat, Rich and Sad on vinyl and/or Cd. The Cd has different artwork, a different album title and another special surprise so you should buy both. Released by Mom’s Basement Records, I Buy Records and One Chord Wonder.

Here is what Mr. Specianin had to say about “Once I was talking to Chris Mugwump and we found out that we both have been trying to write a song in the style of HEAD for over 20 years with no satisfactory results. That’s why they’re so unique.
You can write a song that sounds like Screeching Weasel, You can try to write a song that sounds like the Beatles. You can even try to do your best and write a classical Chopin style song. But you’ll never score that goal with HEAD. I dare you to try asshole!”
