OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GIRL TROUBLE PLAYS MARYMOOR PARK ANYWAY
http://www.myspace.com/girltrouble

As you may know, the first Girl Trouble album, “Hit It or Quit It”, was released on K/SubPop in 1988. In fact, this was the first full-length record SubPop ever released. The record matrix number was K/SP-20.

This month SubPop is hosting a huge, two-day concert of SubPop bands in Marymoor Park on July 12/13 to celebrate their 20 year anniversary. It’s billed as the SP-20 event, one letter off from the old Hit It or Quit It matrix number. Coincidence? You be the judge. Of course, Girl Trouble awaited the invitation to join their old friends and label-mates on stage for this most festive occasion.

Unfortunately. the band now suspects that a mistake has been made. They have yet to be contacted by their old label! With only weeks to spare it was obvious there was some sort of unintentional oversight by SubPop.

Girl Trouble has never been a band to let a small detail like not being invited deter them from joining in on any celebration. That’s why they have decided to bring some instruments and play the show anyway, somewhere in Marymoor Park, as close to the venue as they can legally get. This will be the first all-acoustic Girl Trouble show, playing selections from their SubPop album, Hit It or Quit It, in order.

Feel free to look for Girl Trouble somewhere in the park (possibly by some picnic tables or a tree) starting at noon, where they promise to entertain anybody who happens by. Unlike the $30 ticket price for the bands inside the Marymoor Park venue - there will be no charge for this one-day-only performance. Please join us on Saturday, July 12 for this special event. Don’t forget your picnic lunch, blanket and sun screen. Complementary bag of chips to the first 40 K/SP-20 attendees.

Hope to see you there!

One of my favorite venues ever, both to play or attend.

GT is too cool- in the real- sense for those SP shenanigans.

girl trouble was great- total self-contained scene unto themselves, just out for fun.

driving my friend greg owen across the usa, what, 1990?- 1991? hey we'll drop in and catch a show and see his buddy dan peters from mudhoney... walk into monomen opening up for girl trouble at the off ramp (? dunno) with connor brothers bouncing people off their bellies, mark arm rallying troops, and various other seattle scenesters totally "wilding." good times.

can't imagine that sub pop tried to snub 'em, but love the spirit of crashing the party!

Feel free to look for Girl Trouble somewhere in the park (possibly by some picnic tables or a tree)

and complimentary bag of chips! THEY STILL GOT IT!

Now if all the bands who appeared on Bruce's Sub Pop zine tape comps show it would be a real party.

Sub Pop Singles series starts up again! Tyvek, Black Lips, Om... it's like 1993 all over again! Sittin' at Shangri-la, selling Henry Rollins Sub Pop singles for 1.93!

It's a bit like the Pink Fairies playing outside a Hawkwind show.

hey seamus and eric F:

mark is long time buddy; avid trader, lover of french things (Hardy and movies) , superb brazilian connoisseur, and great guy

and if Eric F only knew how hard it is now for kids to get into pomona!!!

according to mark re pomona:

Another punk label coincidence, I think the main guy from Bad Religion/Epitaph was going there at the same time. My bro's tightest bud was a guy named John from Boston, a photog. I remember seeing some Johnny Thunders shots he'd done when I visited in spring of '86.

Hazel wont be there but if that dancer they had is still alive I bet he'll be in the crowd.


ERIC'S TRIP?! Where are they? I actually love that band.

green magnet school

I've never seen anyone but me mention them! You rule. I have all their shit and that sub pop single may be my favorite.

Also, can't forget the Dead Moon SP single!

So, why doesn't sub pop have to call them TVK?

ERIC'S TRIP?! Where are they? I actually love that band.

They became that Elevator Through band or Elevator or Elevator Out Of It. They had a couple of records with different names involving Elevator. One of them was pretty good.

Wasn't that just the one guy? I know Julie did some solo records too. Wasn't into much of their post Eric's Trip stuff but there's a couple cool Elevator songs here and there.
Posted: Jul 9, 2008 6:40 pm
 
It was Elevator to Hell then just Elevator Through. The skinny singer/guitarist, his wife Tara on bass, and the same drummer from Eric's Trip. I just sold what i had left of all this stuff. Loved it at the time. Julie's records are pretty folky/ boring from the ones i've heard.
Posted: Jul 9, 2008 6:42 pm
 
Oh yeah- Elevator to Hell was mostly just Rick White or whatever his name- the skinny long haired dude.
