Digital Release
ppr 029
October 2010
Originally released in 2006 “In all it’s innumerable names” is back in digital format. Recorded by Spencer Moody, this represents 1985 as a keyboard/guitar/drums three piece. When Matt played this album for me in 06 I was not happy that his vocals had been pushed under by the “experimental” recording of Moody, but now years later with headphones on I have found a new love for this album and actually think it’s perfect. Some of these songs would be recorded later but the ones exclusive to this release represent 1985 fantastic ability to craft warm beautiful songs and gripping concepts. This album is available for free, but you may donate  if you wish.

Order Here: http://tummyrockrecords.bigcartel.com/product/poor-school-live-the-raven-cafe-tape

Poor School plays banging improv, punk, noise jazz. This tape release delivers a lo-fi, bombastic live set from the now defunct Raven Cafe in Missoula, MT. This show Poor School shared the bill with usaisamonster. The band was however coaxed into closing the night for fear their banging drums, wailing sax, and distorted guitar would scare away the crowd. This tape can be a 24 Minute Cassingle since it has only one song on it. However the B-side will take you to an unfamiliar memory from the A-Side. Hand Painted and limited to 100 tapes, this is one noisy treat.

Minot is the 4th largest city in North Dakota. It’s one of the most honest and excited punk scenes in the country. Billy and I had talked for years about doing a split together. We got this together in time for Father Son and Holy Smokes to take them on the road with them in the summer of 08. Life was kicking me in the ass and I thought this might have been the last release for Tummy Rock. Fortunetly we have prevailed.

old shoes

lift ev’ry voice and sing
PPR 19 / 1st Pressing: 50 cdr
March 2007
Out of Print

In Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing local musician Tyson Ballew, aka Old Shoes, belts out acoustic pop-punk ditties like the fate of the world depends on it. He strums exuberantly, fingerpicks odd tempos and yell-sings in wavering keys. He’s as restless as a riot grrl and earnest as a poet. But if that all sounds a bit annoying, rest assured, it’s not. Ballew has an incredible ability to be endearingly off-kilter. His strong opinions are softened by a capacity for forgiveness, and he’s just wry enough to keep the positive tone from getting too candied. Sometimes he’s political, like in “FTH v. MFD” where he sings:

“you can’t take out those big guys, but you can still save your communities/’Cause there’s a lot of small-town assholes…gonna be wishin’ they hadn’t messed with me.”

Mostly, though, this album is about how much Ballew values his friendships. There’s a song addressed to Milo and Stella (the young children of local husband and wife duo, Two Year Touqe) promising them a great future.”From Cynthia’s Belly and Into Infamy” invokes old music buddies from now-defunct music joint, Jay’s Upstairs. Each song is an intimate story, deftly distilled and executed with great care. – by Erika Fredrickson

This is Noise Noise Noise’s first full length. Recorded by J Waylon Porcupine(The Reddmen) This is what MRR has to say about it: Wow. What a surprise. Never heard of these folks and they fuckin’ smoke. Over-cranked distorto garage pop punk. Sounding like the bastard child of SCARED OF CHAKA, FYP, and even the MARKED MEN. The songs are all over the yard, from 40-second blazers to anthemic pop numbers. It’s rough and scrappy with hooks galore…and I’m sure a blast live. Every song on this little gem is a keeper and like most bands from the arse end of nowhere (Montana) they have tons of personality and originality. Class. (Tim Brooks)

The follow up to Save Cynicism found Old Shoes recording at home with Jared Sayre on drums, and Peter Dolan play air organ. Some of these songs would go on to be OS classics, such as Pity Party and Custard Banana’s, unfortunately Nate Dogg is a song I would rather have not written. Recorded in my bedroom and mostly Becca and Jared’s basement. Peter Dolan also drew the album cover.

The last Raincoat Mafia album. Solitary Seagull was tape recorded so we had new stuff to sell on our first tour. We thought we would sell alot of tapes on Suckfest. We were wrong. We made maybe 20. We sold like 2 and I gave the rest away. This was when we decided we should try to be really artsy instead of offensive and screamy. This was met by mixed feelings by our friends. We broke up that summer after one last show at Jay’s Upstairs.

This EP was the first official Old Shoes release. The EP is disappointing in performance and production. There were three outtakes from the release that I have somehow lost. Old Shoes completists (if such a thing were real) can rejoice that these sad/bad songs are available in the Tummy Rock Treasure Core box set, that reissues most our our back catalog.  Becca Sayre drew the cover, the guy is supposed to be at Cattin’s our old hang out. Instead of a plate of cheese fries he is looking at a plate of cigarettes.  This is reference to a song that I don’t remember clearly but had a chorus about such a thing.

Tracklisting:

  1. My First Punk Show
  2. 5 am grey
  3. a song for tomorrow, but lets listen today

Spencer and I made up a song called Soccermatch. There are over 10 versions of it. All of them were available(with exception to the Last Soccermatch Jazz Oddessy) on this cassette release. Spencer put together all of all the recordings from all the tapes with great hand drawn art and liner notes. The tape also featured Safety Tips from The Get Along Gang. It was always a crowd favorite when we played it at shows. I love this tape. This was on Spencer’s tape label Little Robot Records, it was release number 0. The b-side of the tape had the ep worth of material that Battery Operated Boyfriend recorded.

Tracklisting:

  1. Electric Shock
  2. First Soccer Match Ever
  3. Soccer Match Wolfman 5 (Ver. 1)
  4. Balloon Catastrophe
  5. Soccer Match Wolfman 5 (Ver. 2)

Though I had been releasing cassette demos for a couple years under the moniker of Poser Punk Records, this compilation was the 1st to get a catalog number. I was in all of these bands with exception to Battery Operated Boyfriend. This beginning period I was so in love with music and so excited by the possibilities and newness of everything. I wanted to share every moment of it. I have hundreds of tapes with live jams, band practices and really inappropriate behavior from our teenage years. Starting a record label is really easy. All I did in the early days was record things with a tape recorder and dub cassette tapes. It was awesome.

Tracklisting:

  1. Old Shoes- Girl or Sandwhich
  2. The Raincoat Mafia- Burlap Sack
  3. AdHd- Tiny Dancer
  4. Battery Operated Boyfriend- Box of Chocolates
  5. AdHd- Still Gonna Play
  6. The Raincoat Mafia- Colby’s a Chomo
  7. Battery Operated Boyfriend- Animals
  8. Old Shoes- Sara Likes The Frames (live)
  9. Spencer the Monster- Soccermatch (Tom Waits is in the house)

Demo Tapes (uncatalogued)

I just found an old angelfire page with some info about these tapes I made from 00-02. I can’t remember a whole lot about them. I know they were hastily made. I might go digging to learn more about them, but for amusement here are their titles and a link to an old web page I made.
