Written by Don Giovanni on 02/03/2015 5:03pm

We are really excited to be working with Alice on their debut record, Revenge Pop. Alice blew me away the first time I saw them, and Jen from Shellshag may have described them best as "the new Velvet Underground."  Don't believe us?

alice is a three-piece band based in new york. revenge pop is their first ep, tracked at the all-ages art space silent barn by kegan zema at 1989 recordings and emily reo in the kitchenette. the cover art is an original drawing by chelsea dirck.

The Lookouts - Spy Rock Road (And Other Stories) CD/2xLP/Digital!

Written by Don Giovanni on 02/02/2015 8:57am

We're really excited to announce that we are releasing a CD/2xLP/Digital collection from The Lookouts! We worked with Larry Livermore on his book Spy Rock Memories last year, so it only made sense to work with him to release some of his music from that period! This was also Tre Cool's first band and this collection includes guest guitar and vocal appearances from Billie Joe Armstrong and Tim Armstrong!

We are pressing 500 copies on green vinyl for mail-order while supplies last. You can also pre-order the CD version with a copy of Spy Rock Memories for a special price. This is the first time this music has been on CD and Digital, and all the music has been remastered by Carl Saff.

Listen to the song Story from it here:

Thirty years ago, long before there was such a thing as Gilman Street, Green Day, or the East Bay pop punk explosion, three guys got together in an off-the-grid hippie wilderness known as Spy Rock, at the heart of Northern California’s legendary Emerald Triangle. They hooked their amps up to their solar panels, made up a couple songs about living on the backside of nowhere, and The Lookouts were born.
It would be the first time 12-year-old Tre Cool ever laid hands on a drumstick or a set of drums, but over the following five and a half years he would hone the skills that would see him headlining amphitheatres and stadiums, winning Grammy Awards, and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his second band, Green Day. Guitarist and singer Larry Livermore would go on to co-found Lookout Records, the indie label that introduced Green Day and many other bands to the world. 
Together with bassist (and future forest ranger) Kain Kong, and with guest appearances by Operation Ivy’s Tim Armstrong and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, The Lookouts produced a legacy of two albums, two EPs, and several compilation tracks, the best of which are featured here. Also included is a track from The Lookouts’ very first demo tape, recorded in 1985, which features Tre singing backups in his as yet unbroken three-and-a-half-octave soprano.

"Naked Under The Arch" - Drawings by Marissa Paternoster out Feb. 13th!

Written by Don Giovanni on 01/08/2015 12:52pm

We're really excited to announce that were going to be releasing the second collection of artwork by Marissa Paternoster.  The collection is entitled Naked Under The Arch and is a 40 page booklet professionally printed on high quality paper.

People familiar with Don Giovanni Records are probably already familiar with both Marissa Paternoster and her artwork.  In addition to playing guitar and singing in Screaming Females and Noun, Marissa also does all of the Screaming Females artwork and has done artwork for a number of other bands on and off Don Giovanni. 

The first printing of the booklets will include a signed and #d edition limited to 100 for mail order only, as well as a non-signed and numbered edition that will be available at Screaming Females shows and through our website. In addition, we are releasing a limited run of 100 copies of a book of artwork by Leslie Paternoster curated by Marissa. The only way to get this second book is by ordering one of the signed and numbered copies of Naked Under The Arch.


Signed and numbered editions of her first book sold out within 24 hours and the remaining copies sold out over the following months, so act fast!

Pre-orders for both editions are up now in our store.

We are celebrating the release of the book with a month long gallery show at Gush in Philadelphia with an opening on February 13th!
