The folks over at That’s Good Enough for Me were kind enough to premiere the latest video from The Readymen for the track “Betterfastercheaper” from their re-issue Restless. Check it out below as well and grab some super sweet vinyl over on our Webstore or Bandcamp page too!
Originally slated to be re-released by Jump Start in the early 2000s after the band’s original label, Kingpin Records, went under, we’re stoked to finally bring this ‘masterpiece’ of Pacific Northwest ska-punk back to life!
Mastered to the band’s original track sequencing with reworked LP artwork from the original art pieces created and assembled by the band, Restless sounds as urgent today as when it was released over 20 years ago.
The kind folks over at Brooklyn Vegan premiered the track “Justified” last week but you can also check out the video on our YouTube channel and below. We think this release one of the most crucial yet overlooked ska-punk releases of the late 90s!
We’ve launched a PRE-ORDER for Restless over on our Limited Run webstore of the limited pressing of 300 that includes 100 each on Black, Translucent Emerald Green, and the Subscription Club exclusive variant of Opaque Emerald Green with White Swirl that brings this band to a new generation of fans that will be quick to see the link between Op Ivy and today’s crop of current bands. Former members went on to play in notable bands like Leftover Crack, MDC, and The Stockyard Stoics.
