Word on the street says that there is a new Atlanta compilation in the works, titled We No Fun. The record is being organized by a few folks, including Chris Daresta of local experimental acts Gold Painted Nails and Suitcases, as well as Mike Keenan of the band Hawks.
According to Daresta the title is not meant as a jab at We Fun, the documentary film about Atlanta's garage rock scene that is currently in production. Rather it's a reference to Brian Eno's No New York compilation that documented a handful of bands that made up New York's No Wave scene in the late '70s.
"We wanted to put together a cool document of Atlantas alternative stuff... Just outsider kind of stuff." Daresta says.
The comp. will be a vinyl only release and pressed in a limited edition of 500 copies. According to the We No fun Myspace page the record will feature 10 bands and the line-up includes Chrissakes, Hawks, the Sunglasses, Thy Mighty Contract, the Suitcases, Retconned, Judy Chicago, SIDS, Lay Down Mains, Bernard, Chopper and the Felon Wind, which is actually 12 bands.
More details will be posted as they come in.
