Fifteen "Swain's First Bike Ride" TAPE

Dead Broke

$ 7.00

Legendary California-based punk band, FIFTEEN! From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. These records changed our lives and the socially conscious lyrics touched & taught us in ways music would seldom again throughout the years. 

"Swain's First Bike Ride" is their first full-length album, recorded in December 1990. Originally released on 12" vinyl in 1991 on Lookout! Records.  Fifteen formed in 1988 during the tail end of a Crimpshrine tour. After Crimpshrine broke up, Fifteen started playing shows. Fifteen embarked on their first tour in the summer of 1989, and recorded their debut EP in April 1990 for Lookout! Records. Fifteen went on their first US tour in the summer of 1990, playing shows with Filth & Fugazi. 

These reissues as true to the original releases as possible, while the songs have taken on a new life with a 2017 remastering. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Astounding artwork restoration by Hugo Fitzgerald, face-lifted from the original hand-made art.
