A Brief Moment In The Sun

    Soulside formed in Washington, DC, in 1985, split up in 1989, then reformed in 2014 and has continued playing and writing music since then. After releasing their debut album on Sammich/Dischord, they recorded Trigger (Dischord, 1988) and Hot Bodi-Gram (Dischord, 1989), which were combined on the Soon Come Happy CD in 1990. The band toured extensively in the US and Europe during these years, including groundbreaking shows in Poland and East Berlin shortly before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989.

    In 2020, Soulside put out a new 7-inch, This Ship, their first release in 30 years, which was recorded in Prague. In late 2022, Dischord will release a 12-song Soulside album, A Brief Moment in the Sun, which was written during the heart of the coronavirus pandemic and recorded in person by J. Robbins in November 2021.

        Laura says: A Piccadilly favourite back in the day. If you ever came into the Piccadilly Gardens shop on a Monday (John's day off and the only day we could get away with playing this!) in the mid/late 80s, there's a good chance you'd have heard this at full volume. Still love it!

        Justin Moyer – a.k.a. Edie Sedgwick, the Warhol starlet who died of a barbiturate overdose in 1971 –spent much of the last decade schlepping around the globe in a wig and a dress, imparting his/her wisdom on celebrity culture to the masses. Sometimes, he brought a live band. Other nights, he made do with an iPod.

        But following the release of his third LP, Love Gets Lovelier Every Day, in 2011, Moyer understood that it was time to change that shit up. After all, ten years is a long time, man. Since Edie first stepped to the mic in 1999, four of Moyer’s other bands – El Guapo, Supersystem, Antelope, and SPRCSS – came and went. Entire scenes, genres, and record labels were born and passed from this Earth.

        So, Edie became E.D. And the group became Moyer’s central musical outlet, rather than a side-project indulged between tours. He recruited a full-time-ish backing band, including bassist Kristina Buddenhagen, drummer Jess Matthews (America Hearts), and singer JosaFeen Wells. And he consigned that tattered silver frock to the closet. Now, E.D. wears white.

        Incidentally, We Wear White is also the title of his new record. Recorded by TJ Lipple at Inner Ear and mixed by Trans Am’s Phil Manley at his San Francisco HQ, Lucky Cat Recording, We Wear White is a more aggressive, dirtier batch of songs. In fact, the first song is called, “Dirty.” E.D.’s lyrics have drifted away from the pages of People magazine and toward topics relevant to the here and now – retro-fetishism, gentrification, and why it was totally a mistake for you to get that DC flag tattoo. It includes Moyer's first ever song about smoking marijuana (full disclosure: Justin Moyer has never smoked marijuana).

        Why wear white? Because red means blood. Because blue’s no good. Because you get to be born again. It’s the color of renewal - and the perfect pigment in which to rendezvous with your preferred higher power

        Rites Of Spring

        Six Song Demo

          Rites of Spring were among the most important and beloved bands to emerge from the DC underground music scene in the mid-80s.

          Formed by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) on vocals/guitar, Mike Fellows bass, Brendan Canty (Fugazi) on drums, and Eddie Janney (Faith) on guitar in 1984, the quartet released a self-titled LP and a 7” single before disbanding in 1986.

          They were central to what came to be known as 'Revolution Summer', a period of redefinition and creative burst from the DC scene in 1985. Before that – before they even played a show -- the band recorded a six-song demo tape at Inner Ear with Don Zientara and Ian MacKaye.

          After the dissolution of their previous band, Insurrection, in 1983, Canty, Picciotto, and Fellows joined with Faith guitarist Eddie Janney and began writing new songs. Unfortunately, just as they became ready to play out, Fellows announced plans to relocate to Los Angeles, effectively ending the band before it even got started. Before the bassist departed, the group decided to go to Inner Ear to document the handful of finished songs that they had written.

          At this point, not only had they never played a show, Rites of Spring hadn’t even settled on a name (on the tapes, Zientara listed the sessions as Insurrection II). But already, the music marked a musical shift for the DC punk community, consciously breaking away from the macho-clichés that had come to plague hardcore music.

          The sessions were notable for being the first time that anybody had heard Picciotto sing. At the time, few bands had access to a PA system during practice and the volume of the other instruments often blotted out vocals. Shortly after tracking was completed, Fellows hit the road and the recordings were mixed in his absence, hence the Beatles-inspired “Mike Fellows is dead,” gag at the end of “By Design.”

          Because the band had broken up before ever playing, there was no plan to officially release the recording, so the completed songs were dubbed onto cassette tapes and given out to friends, who passed them along to others. As a result of the tape-trading the recordings were heard far and wide, though each copy suffered a loss of sound-quality.

          As it turned out, the West Coast didn’t agree with Fellows and in July he came back to DC to rejoin the band. Shortly after his return the band performed its first show at Food For Thought opening for Gray Matter. They would perform fewer than 20 shows before they dis- banded.

          These six songs capture Rites of Spring in its earliest stages. Once the band started playing out, the songs gained velocity and intensity (see the 7-minute plus version of “End on End” that closes their LP), but many of the elements that defined their music – frenzied energy, sharp melodies, and introspective lyrics -- were already very much in place. The release has been mastered from the original tapes and is presented exactly as it was on those cassettes in 1984 complete with the tape collages and assorted audio-graffiti. Members went on to play in Happy Go Licky, Fugazi, Royal Trux, and Silver Jews.

          Recorded April 1984 at Inner Ear Studios by Don Zientara; Produced by Ian MacKaye. Mastered by TJ Lipple in Summer 2012.

          Dag Nasty

          Dag With Shawn

            After only three months of playing shows, Dag Nasty went into Inner Ear Studios with Ian MacKaye. "Dag With Shawn" was recorded on Halloween Day 1985 and features the original line-up of the band with Shawn Brown on vocals.

            Initially songs from this session were to be released as a four-song 7" on Dischord, but shortly after the recording Shawn left Dag Nasty and the tape was shelved. In early 1986 the band re-recorded the entire album with new vocalist Dave Smalley and released it as "Can I Say".

            This original session has only been previously available as partial out-takes and unauthorized bootlegs and, until now, has never been released in its complete form. This recording, taken from restored master tapes, offers a unique view into the early development of one of DC’s most influential bands.

            Shawn went on to form the much loved Swiz and Dag Nasty went through several more line-up changes over the years, including another vocal switch when Dave Smalley was replaced by Peter Cortner.
