Before Green Day, Operation Ivy, and Lookout Records put the East Bay’s burgeoning punk scene on the map, a trio of Berkeley kids were reinventing the genre with music that was melodic but full of feedback, and a singer who sounded like he gargled glass. Crimpshrine's debut EP was Lookout’s fourth release, followed by an album, a second EP, and a slew of split singles and compilation tracks before the band imploded in 1989 after a ridiculous two-and-a-half-month tour in a Ford Pinto hatchback. Formed around teenage binary stars Jeff Ott and Aaron Cometbus, Crimpshrine went through a series of lineups in their four-year run, utilizing future Tilt and Go Sailor bassists Pete Rypins and Paul Curran, and briefly including second guitarist Idon Bryant. Not overtly political, their fiery brand of introspective punk touched on homelessness, teenage pregnancy, drug use, friendship, isolation, and a grimy sort of romance. Two collections have emerged posthumously: 1992’s Duct Tape Soup and 1998’s The Sound Of A New World Being Born, both falling out of print upon Lookout’s demise in 2012.

Free Box compiles Duct Tape Soup, Sound Of A New World Being Born, and the 7 Song Demo+Berkeley Sampler into one tidy box. Packaged in a sturdy, side-loading, tip-on style box, and limited to 500 copies. Includes Cometbus-designed History of East Bay Punk fold out poster. Only available here.

Click on the track to play a sample. If available for purchase, an MP3 is $1 or a FLAC is $1.50.
