Some random day back in 1995 I walked into Vinyl Solution
Records in Huntington Beach, CA to flip through all the new releases just
like I did at least a few times each week. A guy working there named Mike
cared to know what I liked and knew it well. On this particular random day
he pulled out Plow United's self titled album and presented it to me without
a saying a word. He just looked at me, then at the record and then nodded.
He was usually very talkative and happy to engage in conversation about
bands and records, so I took his silent suggestion straight to heart. I
didn't even consider not buying that album that day. And so it goes, my life
was changed forever.
Plow United's debut album opened up a world of music to me. Everything I
would later come to know and love from the PA / NJ/ NY area all started
here. But nothing that followed ever topped the album that started it all.
This album never gets old to me. It never leaves that imaginary top 5 albums
of all time list that runs through my head. It will never be old. And now
it's new all over again!
I never thought that 19 years later I would be running a record label and
re-releasing this classic masterpiece. But here we are and here it is.
Twelve tracks of why punk rock matters to me. And if you told me it was
going to be re-mastered by Stephen Egerton of the DESCENDENTS? Pssssh, yeah
I hope this reissue serves as much as a celebration of what's come before as
it does of what's coming next. Plow United is back and there is a world full
of people who need to know. If you're one of these people, this album is
where it all begins for you. Enjoy!
