Dear Landlord/Chinese Telephones


(Rivethead, Copyrights)

It's Alive 17

Released on July 9, 2007

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

All of our 7"s come stuffed with a professionally printed cdr w/ booklet + poster! The mid west is producing some great punk rock these days. Dear Landlord and Chinese Telephones are definitely among the best of the bands doing their thing in middle America. Illinois' Dear Landlord picks up where Rivethead left off a few years ago, which makes sense being that two ex members make up half of the band. The other half is made up of two current members of The Copyrights. With those two bands coming together you simply cannot go wrong. Doubled up gruff vocalists, urgent lyrics, stop-n-go driving rhythms and some slick guitar riffage make for some awesome tunes. Wisconsin's Chinese Telephones are winning over fans from all genres of punk rock. Their music is hard to nail down to a certain style or sound. A big part of what separates them from the rest of the pack is their heartfelt lyrics delivered with an almost desperate vocal need to be heard. The music itself is quite unique is its own right - almost non-stop guitar riffs throughout each song from start to finish really bring something fresh to every second of every song these guys put out. This record was co-released with the fine folks over at Recess Records - by far one of the best independent punk rock labels the world over.

This is a great split release from two excellent pop punk bands. Definitely a worthy purchase and both bands are two awesome bands you need to search out for if you like pop punk. Not too familiar with Chinese Telephones or their background, but Dear Landlord is members of the Copyrights and former members of Rivethead from Minneapolis (who's vocalist is now in Banner Pilot). Pick this up if you like pop punk!

I really liked this split. Both bands are equally great and compliment each other well. Blah blah blah.

Dear Lanlord has members of the pop/punk band the copyrights and they play 2 great songs! fast and fantastic. Chinese telephones are pretty good as well.

If you enjoy a good pop punk record then pick this up. plus it is on limited color vinyl and comes with all the music on a CD-R. good stuff.

pick this up while you still can.
