You are welcome. You've got pop songs. Now you too are a friend. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.
Slinging tuneage like some fried or otherwise soused short-order cook. For some reason Age 13 - Pop Songs For Our Friends past keeps creeping into things lately. Chris Johanson was one of the artists…. He grew up skateboarding, attending punk rock Zucchero Sugar Fornaciari* - Baila (Sexy Thing), drawing.
He had a dry yet sharp sense of humor. He had no formal training in art, learning some technique by painting skateboards and houses. He was a prominent 'zine artist, and his publication "Karmaboarder," a skateboarding and art zine he published in the early to late 's, helped shape what later became well-known works. InJohanson did one of the initial board graphic runs for a new San Francisco-based skateboard brand, Anti-Hero, which brought his art to a wider audience. Also, during this time, he played in a band called "Tina, Age 13," which was scrawled on a drawing the band came across randomly.
They had already become one of my favorite bands by that time. This scene was the SHIT! Because you believed in what they were doing and their success would be the success of your tiny bullshit town, and in a way, you too. In Tina, Age 13 was that band in San Francisco. Granted, SF isn't some tiny bullshit town, Tina if it is always tiny and often bullshit, but you know what I mean.
Anyways, they were every bit as great as Pavement or Superchunk was and even better was the fact that I was their friend and as the title suggests they made this beautiful 7" for me among others. I appreciate it still, the song Tina still makes me sad in that good way that lets you know that you are still a human.
Tina, Age 13 aren't a band anymore, something always fucks that up, but they are still my friends. Sean Casement still lives in San Francisco, our sons sometimes play together.
Sadly, Jake took his own life not long after this record came out. He was a good dude, but maybe he Walls Of Insanity - Various - Metal Tracker Nº7 think so.
They were all good dudes. Good Times, Hard Times indeed. Thanks, friends. No instrumental overdubs. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
