Exploding Hearts


Dirtnap 32

Released on October 31, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

On 07-20-2003 the world lost 3/4ths of the Exploding Hearts (Adam Cox, Jeremy Gage, and Matt Fiztergerald) in a tragic van wreck outside Eugene, Oregon. The band was returning from San Francisco, where they played a couple of insanely well received shows....

During it's short existence the band left behind a rather brief legacy: one classic LP/CD on Screaming Apple/Dirtnap, a couple of singles on Vinyl Warning and Pelado, a slated-to-be-released (but unissued till now) single on Dirtnap, a slot on the Dirtnap Across the NW comp, and that's about it.

The long awaited release of Shattered, a 16 track CD which will compile the bands singles, demos, alt takes from the Guitar Romantic sessions, and unreleased material.

Meant as a tribute to the band and their music, the CD will come with a 20 page full color booklet filled with unseen photos from the personal archive of band photographer Chrystaei Branchaw, incredible, extensive liner notes from Fred "The Barber" Landeen of Vinyl Warning Records fame, and will be enhanced with a 5 song video from their show at Bottom Of The Hill in San Francisco, CA 07/17/03. (their last official show.)

Of the new songs on here, Shattered is by far and away the best. I think all the other new stuff is overshadowed by the remixes from Guitar Romantic. I would have been more happy if this was an EP, but that wouldn't have been a suitable tribute to a band of The Exploding Hearts potential.

AWESOME. A little redudant with the alternate takes from Guitar Romantic but I loved this band so true fans won't mind hearing them.Every song on here is insanely catchy. The live video portion was really cool as well. What a sad story, these guys would be ruling the punk scene right now if they were around still. R.I.P. Exploding Hearts and thanks for some truely great power-pop punk. Dirtnap Reords is soon becoming one of those label that I would buy anything from.

Fucking Awesome! A collection of tracks released as 7inch before (wich included a cover of PAUL COLLINS BEAT) and a bunch of alternate track and demo from the guitar Romantic sessions.....This is real power pop from the heart, These guys sound like they have recorded this in the late 70's. Think of NICK LOWE, ROMANTICS, PLIMSOULS, THE BEAT, BOYS, BUZZCOCKS, etc....This is too good to be true....The CD include a 20 page booklet and a enhenced video of 5 songs from the last show they did in SF before 3/4 of the band died in a van crash accident on their way back to portland. Get this and don't forgot to pick up as well their Guitar Romantic LP. You won't be dissapointed!

This is sooooooo good. Not only do you get the rare songs from the vinyl and some different versions of classics off "GUITAR ROMANTIC" also get five live videos on the CDROM! See there is still a very good reason to buy CD's. Get "GUITAR ROMANTIC" first, then get this!

What to say about The Exploding Hearts that hasn't already been said? Damn fine band, gone way too soon. They left us one amazing album “Guitar Romantic” and a few singles. All essential btw. If you don't own the singles that go for crazy money now, this is a must-buy. It collects all the singles and a bunch of alternate mixes of songs. Listening to this cd will make you cry at how truthful and totally great these songs are and how cool The Exploding Hearts really were. Pick this release up if you like them or classic hooky punk/power pop. RIP July 20th, 2003 The Exploding Hearts: Adam, Jeremy, Matt. Gone but never forgotten. PS: Check out surviving member Terry’s band The Nice Boys album on Birdman for similar sounds. There's some members of The Riffs in that band as well. Interpunk stocks the cd/lp.
