Lawrence Arms

Cocktails And Dreams

(Broadways, Slapstick)

Asian Man 131

Released on June 21, 2005

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Asian Man Records is proud to announce the release of THE LAWRENCE ARMS' long awaited "b-sides" CD. This album contains tracks from the now out-of-print split CDs (with The Chinkees & Shady View Terrace), as well as an exclusive new song and two new recordings of old songs and special bonus tracks. Rare stuff here! Forming in Chicago in 1999, this energetic, gruff, yet melodic punk rock trio combines good old East Bay punk mixed with that great Midwest sound. Think JAWBREAKER meets CRIMPSHRINE. These boys are no strangers to AMR with 2 other full lengths under their belt and featuring ex-members of Asian Man bands THE BROADWAYS & SLAPSTICK.

This is a great compilation of Lawrence Arms songs. Some of my favorites are on this album. I'd recommend it to anyone. There are a ton of songs that will keep you coming back again and again. Redone versions of the Old timer's 2x4 and Turnstyles are awesome. Just another fantastic release from an incredible band.

i can see why this is a b-sides kinda thing, i havent given this a listen in a while and i dont remember it being all that great. i have a couple of these guys cds and i am realising that every song that chris sings kinda sounds the same, same progressions, chords and he sings the same way every goddamn time, it gets old after a while. brendens songs are mucho better, varying speeds and styles i guess you could say, also i got oh! calcutta which blows all their old cds away so im not appreciating their old stuff as much as i know i should

This is an amazing b-sides. This has great Lawrence arms songs from that early ep split and compilation songs and what have you. They also have the new version of Turnstyles! Brenden and Chris are two of the greatest countervocalists in the history of punk rock. yah definetly buy this whether you've been a long time larry arms fan or just getting into them. yah

Great does not have any of the flaws b-side albums usually have...i.e. no filler songs, no shitty production, no boring and useless cover songs or whatsoever. Just 16 really good songs that would have easily made it on any "regular" album. Just as you are used to by the mighty Lawrence Arms, one of the best punk bands around nowadays. Can't wait for "Oh, Calcutta!"

all of the tracks that make this album up are better than half of the tracks on most pop-punk records. completely flawless. new album out next spring and i cant wait. if you're just getting into the band pick up apathy & exhaustion first, then greatest story ever told (my favorite) then this.

i heard all these songs before (except for intransit and the 2 re-recorded tracks, obviously), but stil i listen to this cd everyday, because there is not a bad song on it. I cant verbalise just how good this cd is, just utter magnificance from the lawrence arms once again. Still the best band going around to date, if you dispute this, your either dumb or ignorant, or both...

a pretty damn good compilation of rarities, alternate track takes, etc. the lawrence arms rock, and "cocktails..." accurately sums up why. its an even mix of brendan and chris' influences on their music- the punky grit mixed with the catchy melodic. if yer like me and "ghost stories" is yer favorite release, pick this one up.

God damn, what can I say? Pure remescent punk rock from the Lawrence Arms. This has all thier songs that they've done from splits and complations, including a new song Intransit, and new recordings of classics The Old Timers 2x4 and a personel fav, Turnstiles, with a little tribute to HWM thrown in ;). Buy now trust me, money worth spent.
