The Lookouts - Spy Rock Road (And Other Stories) CD/2xLP/Digital!
We're really excited to announce that we are releasing a CD/2xLP/Digital collection from The Lookouts! We worked with Larry Livermore on his book Spy Rock Memories last year, so it only made sense to work with him to release some of his music from that period! This was also Tre Cool's first band and this collection includes guest guitar and vocal appearances from Billie Joe Armstrong and Tim Armstrong!
We are pressing 500 copies on green vinyl for mail-order while supplies last. You can also pre-order the CD version with a copy of Spy Rock Memories for a special price. This is the first time this music has been on CD and Digital, and all the music has been remastered by Carl Saff.
Listen to the song Story from it here:
Thirty years ago, long before there was such a thing as
Gilman Street, Green Day, or the East Bay pop punk explosion, three guys got
together in an off-the-grid hippie wilderness known as Spy Rock, at the heart
of Northern California’s legendary Emerald Triangle. They hooked their amps up
to their solar panels, made up a couple songs about living on the backside of
nowhere, and The Lookouts were born.
It would be the first time 12-year-old Tre Cool ever laid
hands on a drumstick or a set of drums, but over the following five and a half
years he would hone the skills that would see him headlining amphitheatres and
stadiums, winning Grammy Awards, and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame with his second band, Green Day. Guitarist and singer Larry Livermore would
go on to co-found Lookout Records, the indie label that introduced Green Day
and many other bands to the world.
Together with bassist (and future forest ranger) Kain Kong, and
with guest appearances by Operation Ivy’s Tim Armstrong and Green Day’s Billie
Joe Armstrong, The Lookouts produced a legacy of two albums, two EPs, and
several compilation tracks, the best of which are featured here. Also included is
a track from The Lookouts’ very first demo tape, recorded in 1985, which features
Tre singing backups in his as yet unbroken three-and-a-half-octave soprano.
