Thanks Everard, downloading now. I enjoyed the book, I'm out of touch with the world of K, didn't even realise Candice had left (that all felt a bit odd). There were some nice Calvinisms (the Patty Smith autograph incident for one). I was hoping for a bit about one of my favourites Maher Shalal Hash Baz but you can't have it all

first genuinely exciting k release in years! (imo)

k mailorder
1978, Portland, Ore.: The Neo Boys are a young all-female band existing in the midst of the growing Northwest punk rock movement. For their first show, they opened for Television, and later on, for Nico. They recorded & released records with Greg Sage from The Wipers. Sooner Or Later is as complete a collection as we can concoct of the Neo Boys history, told chronologically, from 1978-83. We’ve joined forces with Portland’s Mississippi Records to present the gatefold double LP version, with a double CD version available, as well. All history aside, the Neo Boys sound vital. It’s hard to tell you all how essential their music is.

I'm really excited about this release (but your opinion about the first blah blah blah is wrong... well, not mine)

sure, i didn't expect you (or anyone necessarily) to agree. the point i was making was not so much 'k is boring these days' trolling as just being happy that a label i used to really love, and still consider a candidate for greatest label ever (1985-1991), is putting out something that reflects my musical interests, is an important puzzle piece of the history of punk in the pacific northwest, and connects to k's early history (via greg sage and sub pop).

Either way, thanks for the reminder, I'll be getting this one.

while I'm on this thread does anyone have a link to the Go Team stuff? such as a comp of their 7" on a blog somewhere? last time I tried to find it I kept hitting dead ends.

the 331/3 book and domino anthology are both worth getting. full reissue series in 2016, apparently. which is nice, as domino seem to do reissues very well.
