The Rubinoos, The Tripwires

  • The Rubinoos

    The Rubinoos

    Power Pop

    Exactly forty years after The Rubinoos capped their original and unlikely rise to fame with the Beserkley Records classic Back To The Drawing Board!, the definitive line-up featuring Jon Rubin, Tommy Dunbar, Donn Spindt and Al Chan are back in action on new album From Home, out August 23 on Yep Roc Records. After forming in 1970 when no one in the band was old enough to drive a car, the Bay Area rockers earned hero status in the late 1970s over an incredible three-year stretch (1977-1980) which saw them release two albums, chart on the Billboard Hot 100, perform on American Bandstand and Old Grey Whistle Test, back Jonathan Richman, grace the pages of Tiger Beat, and tour with Elvis Costello. The Rubinoos have toured and recorded in different incarnations in the intervening decades, but From Home represents a true return to the original spirit of the group. 
     
    This new album is thanks in part to fellow SF artist Chuck Prophet, a self-avowed superfan who saw the Rubinoos dozens of times as a teenager. From Home sees this magnificently unconventional four-piece return with all of the Beach Boys backed by a garage band” intensity and impeccability of their 70s breakout.

    The Tripwires

    Pop

    Seattle's The Tripwires are sitting on a goldmine- four time tested, plucky vets of the Seattle "Big Beat" situation. Way back in 2006; John Ramberg, voice and guitar for The Model Rockets and The Minus 5 managed to corral the incomparable Sangster brothers for a blistering new rock'n'roll combination. 
    Jim Sangster holds down the thunderbroom (and How!) in the legendary Young Fresh Fellows, and also served mightily behind the regular guitar with The Picketts. Brother Johnny, ear popping lead guitarist, formerly with European fist pumpers The Sharing Patrol among many others, moved back stateside in the late nineties and began an illustrious career as a recordist. Friend and fellow groover Mark Pickerel, he of The Screaming Trees, came along on traps, much to their delight.
    Two fine albums followed, "Makes You Look Around" released in 2007 on the Paisley Pop label, and 2010's "House To House" on Spark and Shine. The band has graced many a beer soaked northwest stage, never failing to share their special brand of "get high" with the delighted throngs.
    2012 brought a new wrinkle into the band's workshirts. After parting amicably with the impeccable Pickerel, the combo lucked into a new skinsman; none other than the great Dan Peters of Seattle fuzz royalty Mudhoney. Still having a blast and sounding ship shape as ever, The Tripwires are ready to roll you.
