I could imagine this project starting off as a joke but goddamn! When I was in high school someone handed me a tape with Discharge’s “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing”album on one of the sides. Shit ain’t no joke!

                    Todd Congelliere – Wrong Side LP out now!

                    27 May

                    Posted by: Todd C

                    Limited Red (w labels on wrong side-get it?) and White vinyl (labels “correct”) available now
                    Also on cassette

                    Here’s what Vice/Noisey says:

                    “Punk rock mastermind Todd Congelliere is probably best known for his roles in excellent bands like FYP, Toys that Kill and Underground Railroad to Candyland, but now he’s back to shining on his own with his new solo LP Wrong Side via Recess Records. The record sees Todd experimenting into different directions, but keeping his enviable pop sensibility for the duration of the release.”-Fred Pessaro/Vice/Noisey
                    Vice is streaming Wrong Side.

                    Recess Going On’s

                    21 Mar

                    Posted by: Todd C

                    Just a few notes here: First off, we got a few releases on our Bandcamp page bargain priced to encourage actually paying for music. I hate to say this but it’s super surprising the amount of support we’ve gotten since launching these. Sure it’s cheap as hell to own an album (most noteworthy: FYP-COMPLETE CRAP. 93 songs for only $10!) but it almost restores my faith in humanity. It doesn’t even seem to be about owning mp3′s as opposed to supporting a band/label. Regardless of the motives, it does not go unrecognized in these parts. Every time a get a notification that someone paid for our music,and even paying more than asked!, I say to myself “This person rules”…and a sailor dies.

                    Lenguas Largas has an album coming out this summer that absolutely shreds and grinds!!
                    Yours truly is the most recent guest on  Shellshonic Shag-o-vision Episode 7 [Todd Congelliere]
                    We’re super close to the Toys That Kill, FYP, URTC Europe tour! Spread the word!
