The “Dr. Rogers” Box (from Jimmy “Jerry Rogers” of White Fang)
Jerry’s picks: Petty Things, Fungi Girls, BOOM! “Get A Grip”, Gnar FM 2
“I like the Fungi Girls swirly psychedelic sounds, Petty Things’ “Bored” was my favorite song of 2014, GNAR FM 2 is a classic from the boys down at the Gnar HQ, and you gotta get a grip on this “Get A Grip” tape by BOOM! it’s essential for your catalog”
The “Totally Your” Box (from Totally You aka Izak of The Memories and BOOM!)
Izak’s picks: Sich Mang, Gap Dream, Jib Kidder, Love Cop “Pop Magick Is Real”
“I like Sich Mang cuz it’s super trippy and half the time I have no idea what the fuck’s going on, Gap Dream because the songs are really really awesome, Jib Kidder he’s the best in the biz at what he does and this tape is so next level, and then Love Cop cuz I didn’t know Jay & Silent Bob made music; and I love Jay & Silent Bob.“
The “Cinnamon” Box (from Fuzz Puddle aka Kyle of White Fang and The Memories)
Cinnamon Bear’s picks: Phil Thomas Katt, Boys Age, The Tubs, Sich Mang
“Phil Thomas Katt’s got a little bit of everything, Boys Age cuz I’m continuously surprised by them, The Tubs cuz it’s a classic Gnar Tape, and Sich Mang cuz you gotta be able to shake it after you get home from school.“
The “Funkle” Box (from Unkle Funkle of White Fang)
Unkle Funkle’s picks: Gnar FM 2, Jib Kidder, Boys Age, Zach Phillips“Gnar FM cuz it has so many of the artists that our label; it seemed so hard to choose for that it felt like this one was a shoe-in. Jib Kidder cuz the innovative songwriting and performance and recording techniques, and because he has been a big influence on Gnar Tapes since the very beginning. Boys Age cuz I think they’re one of our underappreciated releases and its cool sounds and songs; a very overlooked release I‘d like to see get more attention. I chose Zach Phillips cuz it’s one of the more strange releases we’ve done so it’s perfect for the Funkle box.“
The “Free Weed” Box (from Free Weed aka Rikky of The Memories and White Fang)
Free Weed’s picks: Zach Phillips, The Lemons, Keel Her, Phil Thomas Katt“Zach Phillips cuz he’s a genius and was in one of my favorite bands (Blanche Blanche Blanche), The Lemons cuz they write the best short songs that I’ve heard besides The Memories ;-), Keel Her cuz her songs are amazing and she makes so many, and Phil Thomas Katt because it’s one of my favorite tapes we’ve done and a true lost classic.“
