SideOneDummy owner and Complete Control Radio host, Joe Sib has rounded the troops and put together an awesome live recording series. Much like the Peel Sessions from the early years of Punk Rock, The COMPLETE CONTROL SESSIONS will feature live recordings from all the best bands in the scene.
Who better to kick off the series than the BOUNCING SOULS! The band came through Los Angeles on their last tour and stopped at Swing House Studios and jammed out a live set of six songs, including a Misfits cover, for their session. The Misfits song features a cool guest vocal from long time friend and Alkaline Trio frontman, Matt Skiba.
Sib and company were there to capture the magic and hang out with the band. Joe also gets a chance to interview the bands for his show, which is a two hour specialty show that plays punk rock music from all eras. The show is syndicated in 10 markets including 98.7 FM in Los Angeles.
The COMPLETE CONTROL SESSIONS will be released on SideOneDummy Records and will be available on a limited pressing of vinyl and digitally. All of the artwork for the series will be done by our friend El Jefe from El Jefe Designs. The artwork will have the same aesthetic throughout the series. For all the vinyl collectors of the world: the album we be pressed on 3 colors. 1,400 black, 300 Black with Gold Splatter and 300 Gold with Black splatter. The colored versions will be sold through SideOneDummy Records and Chunksaah Records websites.
BOUNCING SOULS “Complete Control Sessions” will be available April 12, 2011.
