There's nothing quite like crispy, shrink-wrapped vinyl LPs, is there? In anticipation of Green Day's  upcoming new release, 21st Century Breakdown, Reprise Records has announced it will be reissuing the Berkeley pop-punx entire catalog on audiophile 12-inch vinyl throughout 2009.

The G-Day LP onslaught begins on March 24th, when 39/Smooth and Kerplunk! hit retail outlets. From there, expect to see a new reissue every month. Dookie comes out April 18th, in honor of the second annual Record Store Day, followed by Insomniac (two LPs w/gatefold sleeve) in May, Nimrod in June, Warning in July, International Superhits! in August, the b-sides/rarities/cover collections Shenanigans in September, and American Idiot in November.

The reissue effort also includes Bullet in a Bible, a live CD/DVD skedded for November, and an as-yet-untitled box set of singles, live recordings, international tracks and b-sides (including material recorded under the names Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network), which hits stores in July. If you're a Green Day fan and/or own a turntable, this is good news indeed.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
