Mean Jeans – Singles LP Out Now! European tour starts tomorrow!

Mean Jeans – Singles Out 3/21!



Out March 21st! First Mp3 coming soon!

This epic 20 song collection comps singles, compilation appearances, a few covers (White Wires, Big 
Eyes, Sparks)
and one track from deep in the vaults making its vinyl debut!

Originally released on labels such as Dirtnap (natch!) Goner, Trouble In Mind, It’s Alive, Big Neck, 
and more, 
Singles works as a great overview of a now established band’s humble beginnings and subsequent 
progression. Listening to these songs reminds us of why we fell so hard for these guys in the first 
place, it’s been really fun for us here at Dirtnap to revisit some of this stuff!

It’s all covered, from their earliest 2 piece recordings, to the 1st album era with Howie Doodat on 
bass, to their current, slightly (but not much!) more polished lineup with Junior Jeans. This comp 
shows the band at their rawest, oftentimes most goofy and irreverent, and oftentimes best. Pick it 

1. Stoned 2 The Bone 
2. Total Creep 
3. Invisible Bugs 
4. WTFA401K 
5. License 2 Chill 
6. Bogus Memories 
7. I Think U Stink 
8. Tears In My Beers 
9. Cool 2 Drive 
10. I Remember How (White Wires) 
11. RU Mental 
12. Forever Young (Sparks) 
13. Freaked And Geeked 
14. Let’s Go B4 I Blow My Brains Out 
15. Gonerfest Theme 
16. Possessed To Party 
17. Terminally Twisted 
18. I Miss Outerspace 
19. Since You Left (Big Eyes)
20. Keystone Light

Happy New Year From Dirtnap Records!

Low Culture/Needles//Pins split 7″ out now!


Low Culture/Needles//Pins split 7” out now, on mailorder-exclusive color vinyl!

Low Culture should be familiar to anyone into Dirtnap stuff after the well-received Screens LP in early 2013. Ragged, melodic garagepunk originally from Las Cruces, NM, with members now spread out all over the place (including right here in Portland!). Features members of Shang-A-Lang and Marked Men, and sounds pretty much like a cross between the 2 bands, with the former’s distinct songwriting style mashed together with the latter’s tighter, cleaner performances. These recordings are the results of the band’s first trip into a “pro” recording studio, sounding cleaner but no less effective than past material.

Vancouver, B.C’s Needles//Pins are one of favorite current bands who are NOT already on Dirtnap. We’re friends with them, have seen ‘em a million times (oftentimes on tour with Dirtnap staples such as Sonic Avenues and Steve Adamyk Band), but for some reason have never gotten around to releasing anything by them until now. On their side of the split, Needless//Pins give us 2 memorable punk/garage rippers that were recorded in the same sessions as their excellent new LP, Shamebirds, just released on Dirt Cult Records. We’re stoked to finally be involved with putting something out something by these folks, and hope to do more in the future!

This 7” is a one-time only pressing of 1000. All copies come with 320kbps download coupon. First 200 on CLEAR vinyl, available mailorder only!
