DANKO JONES GARAGE ROCK! A COLLECTION OF LOST SONGS FROM 1996-1998 Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
As time rolls by the uniqueness of a true rock spirit can silently fade but in the case of Danko Jones they have developed a stronger connection to the genre they love and breathe for. On April 4th we are releasing a collection of their lost tracks recorded in Toronto, New York and Washington DC between 1996 and 1998. These never before heard Danko Jones tracks are in true garage rock spirit where you can clearly hear what the band has come from and where they have been. After a year and a half of non-stop touring, video releases, radio charting and a track in one of the most prominent scenes in the movie Kick Ass 2 they are now working on new material for a new full-length album. Whilst we wait; this is what we can lean on, an inspiration to all rock bands out there that your roots are what made you. “If a band continues past the gesticulation stage, the term "Garage Rock" is usually rendered unusable. Back in the 90's, the Garage Rock scene, as I knew it, was a warts-and-all approach that favoured low-fi recordings and rudimentary playing over any modicum of musical prowess in order to glean some Rock N' Roll essence. However, once a band got better at their instruments, songwriting and stage performance, the inevitable crossroads would eventually appear.

Deliberately continuing to play against their growing skill would only evolve into a pose. There were a lot of bands who did exactly this in order to sustain scenester favour. We did the opposite.

What you hold in your hands is a document of what we were and where we came from. We didn't know how to write songs and could barely play but we wanted to be near to the music we loved so badly. We ate, slept and drank this music. We still do. That's why we have never had to reunite because we've never broken up. After 18 years, we've stayed the course, got tough when the going did and, above all else, we have never stopped. This album is the proof.”- Danko Jones
