Naked Raygun

What's to say about these Chicago legends? In honor of Raygun playing here in L.A. next week, I thought I post a couple of their singles. Anyone who's been lucky enough to see them recently, knows that they still got IT! I was able to see them last year in Chicago at the Riot Fest and what a hell of a show it was! As if Raygun wasn't enough, The Effigies, Bollweevils, 7 Seconds, & The Business played. I was talking with Micky from The Business before the show and I asked him what the hell happened with Steve? And he said "We got Divorced." Kinda sad, but hey we all know shit happens! Anyways back to Raygun, now I'm sure most of you fan's know they just played Riot Fest again a few weeks ago and are currently on a whole west coast tour right now. So if they're playing near you, GO SEE THEM! You won't be sorry. They'll be here in L.A. on Friday 12/7 at the Knitting Factory & Saturday 12/8 at Alex's Bar in Long Beach.

Now here we got their 1987 Vanilla Blue 7" & 1989 Treason 12". Both are a bit rare and both have tracks unavailable on any other releases. The B-side to Vanilla Blue (Slim-The Second Coming of Christ) is a nice tribute to actor Slim Pickens. The B-side to Treason has got two nice unreleased live versions of Mr. Gridlock & I Don't Know. So if you don't have them, get em here.
More great music to come!
