1 - SLACKERS, THE - BETTER LATE THAN NEVER - (LP) 
BRAINLAB GROOVE


The Slackers are a New York City band, formed in Manhattan in 1991. The band's sound is a mix of ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub, soul, garage rock, and jazz. The Slackers' notability is credited to their prolific career, tours of North America, Europe, and elsewhere, and signing to notable punk label Hellcat Records. Since 1991, The Slackers have been performing what Bandleader Vic Ruggiero, calls "Jamaican Rock N' Roll." You can hear in their rhythms the sounds of Jamaican roots music like those done by The Skatalites and Early Wailers but its sung with a New York accent, and their original songs are written from an American perspective. Their reworking of genres sounds something similar to what Bob Dylan, the Sonics, or the Rolling Stones would have sounded like if they grew up on as much Reggae and Ska as they did R&B. This 2015 release of "Better Late Than Never" is a remastered version in a new Gatefold artwork.

6 - SLACKERS, THE - THE SLACKERS - (LP) 
BRAINLAB GROOVE


"We have been sneaking in practices at sound checks and have had recording sessions in Brooklyn and out on the road in Portland, Oregon. In trying to find our way towards a new album, we have worked with 3 producers; Vic Axelrod, Brian Dixon, and our own, Agent Jay. Each one of them has supervised the recording of 4 tunes. Vic Axelrod, also known as 'Ticklah,' is well known as a musician, engineer, and producer for Antibalas, Sharon Jones, Easy Star, and Amy Winehouse. We recorded under his supervision at his "Don't Trip" studios in Brooklyn. Brian Dixon is best known as the former guitar player of the Aggrolites, was one of the main architects of their sound, and is a respected producer out of Los Angeles. We were hoping to mix some of the West Coast 'dirty reggae' sound with some of the Slackers "Jamaican Rock N Roll" east coast sound. And last but by no means the least, we had Agent Jay supervise 4 tunes. When he is not the guitar player for the Slackers, he is one of the busiest engineers and producers in the East Coast scene! Hopefully, you guys have heard of him! With Jay we recorded at Seaside Studios in Brooklyn with Mitch Raskin as engineer. Jay has also been in charge of making dubs of many of the tunes as well."

TRACKLISTING: 01. By The Time I Get To Sleep 02. Go Go Go 03. Truth Comes Knocking 04. Chewing On A Face 05. Working Overtime 06. Things I Can't Forget 07. I Want To Be Your Girl 08. Pockets Of A Rich Man 09. Run Till We Can't Outrun 10. Spin I'm In 11. Spaceman
