    currently reading an advanced copy of the band's memoir, Do What You Want, written by Jim Ruland.

    maybe it's a little dull compared to NOFX's band bio since the BR guys live such straightforward nerdy lives, but all the tidbits about recording their early material is so enjoyable.

    Ive been thinking about getting this. I know it's mainly supposed to be Brett, Greg, Jay and Brian. Just curious what the rest of the content is like.

    Have you read The Replacements book? It's really damn good even if you don't know the music.

    Lol I checked out the first Chris Mars solo album and it's a good little 90s alt album!

    Shot him and email and he was very stoked to hear that I liked it!

  11. Digging the re-working of this song. I like the piano. Against The Grain is an underrated BR album.

    i've been thinking about this band a lot the last few weeks with how crazy the country has been and i think this release is the push i need to do a real dive on their catalog. i've been a casual fan for years but theres a bunch of albums i've never touched.

  14. You'll be surprised how relevant their 20-30 year old songs still are.

    Their lyrics are so on point and relevant. I wish even more people listened to this band. Songs like News From the Front and so many others.

    BR is without hyperbole my favorite band ever. They have songs that cover pretty much the entire emotional spectrum for me and have soundtracked the last decade of my life!

    Faith Alone 2020 reminds me of what a new American Lesion record would sound like.
