    Biography

    Frederic John Fatzer, known by his performing name of Freedy Johnston is a New York based singer-songwriter originally from Kansas. His songs are often about troubled loners and cover topics like heartbreak, alienation, and disappointment. Known for his song craft, he has been described as a “songwriter’s songwriter.” When he was 16 he bought his first guitar from a mail-order catalog and at 17 had a friend drive him 35 miles to the nearest record store to buy an Elvis Costello album he heard about. He went to the University Of Kansas, where he immersed himself in the new wave scene. He moved to NYC in 1985 and supported himself as an office worker at an architecture firm as well as in the restaurant industry, prior to pursuing music full time. Freedy was the nickname his mom gave him and Johnston was his mother’s maiden name. After a few years in New York, he was signed by Bar/None Records, who debuted two of his songs on a sampler called Time For A Change, released in 1989. His first full length on Bar/None, The Trouble Tree, was issued in 1990 to favorable reviews but was not commercially successful. Johnston sold some of his family’s farmland to finance the recording of his second album, Can You Fly. The album, released in 1992, was selected by the New York Times as one of the best albums of the year. He followed this up with his 1994 major label debut, This Perfect World, released on Elektra Records and produced by Butch Vig of Garbage. The album received positive reviews and led to Rolling Stone naming Johnston “songwriter of the year.” Other publications, including the New York Times, Spin, and Musician Magazine gave the album high marks as well. The album featured the single, “Bad Reputation,” which reached 54 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is one of his best known songs. He released his next three albums on Elektra: Never Home (produced by Danny Kortchmar), Blue Days Black Nights (produced by T-Bone Burnett) and Right Between The Promises. Johnston’s songs appear on the soundtrack albums for Kingpin (1996), Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead (1995), Heavy (1995), and Kicking and Screaming (1995). If voted to win, Run Out Groove will issue his critically-acclaimed, second full length album, Never Home, on vinyl for the first time.

    Biography

    Hot Hot Heat was a Canadian indie rock band from Victoria British Columbia, formed in 1999. Dustin Hawthorne and Steve Bays had been in many different bands together since 1995 and met Paul Hawley in 1998. Hawley took over drums from Bays, who was the only one who could play the Juno 6 keyboard and Hawthorne played bass. Matthew Marnik, a friend of the band, sang vocals. The band’s original sound can be considered electro-punk. They soon changed direction to a more melodic, pop-influenced style, losing Marnik and adding guitarist Dante DeCaro. Influenced by the new wave sound of bands XTC, The Clash, and Elvis Costello, the new line up with Steve Bays on vocals released a series of 7” singles and toured Canada and the American Pacific Northwest. Their touring exposure attracted interest from Sub-Pop, who signed them in 2001. By the time they signed their sound had mutated from hardcore to dance-punk and stood at the forefront of a movement that would explode on the indie rock scene within another year. Their first full length release, Make Up The Breakdown was produced by Nirvana and Soundgarden producer, Jack Endino. The album quickly found critical acclaim and two of its singles, “Bandages,” and “Talk to Me, Dance With Me,” received regular airplay on MTV and radio, including influential LA station, KROQ-FM, on whose charts both reached No. 1. In 2002, the band signed with Warner Brothers. In 2004, Make Up The Breakdown won “favorite album” at the Canadian Independent Music Awards. Guitarist DeCarlo announced his departure but stayed on to complete their next album, Elevator. The album was the band’s major label debut. In April 2005, Dante handed guitar duties over to replacement Luke Paquin when the band started their 2005 tour. In June, Elevator appeared in the top ten of the !earshot Campus and Community Radio chart. On tour they opened for Weezer and Foo Fighters on the “Foozer Tour.” The band went on to record another album for Warner and two more for indie labels Dangerbird and Kaw-Liga in 2010 and 2016. They announced that their 10-track self-titled album for Kaw-Liga in 2016 would be their final as a band.

    Biography

    Paul Vaughn Butterfield was an American blues harmonica player, singer and band leader. After an early training in classical flute, he developed an interest in blues harmonica and explored the blues scene in his native Chicago with guitarist Nick Gravenites, who shared an interest in blues. By the late 50s they were visiting blues clubs in Chicago where Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter and Otis Rush were encouraging them and occasionally let them sit in on jam sessions. Butterfield met aspiring blues guitarist Elvin Bishop in the early 1960s and with bassist Jerome Arnold and drummer Sam Lay (both from Howlin Wolf’s touring band), the new group secured a highly successful club engagement at Big John’s Folk Club in Chicago which brought them to the attention of producer Paul A. Rothchild. During their engagement, Butterfield met and occasionally sat in with guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Rothchild was impressed with the chemistry between the two and persuaded Paul to bring Bloomfield into the band and eventually signed them to Elektra Records in 1964. Two attempts to record a debut album did not meet Rothchild’s expectations, but he persuaded Jac Holzman to agree to third attempt at recording a full length album. Rothchild assumed the role of group manager and used his folk contacts to book them at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965.The band was able to attract an unusually large audience that was not accustomed to seeing an electric blues combo, as well as the attention of Bob Dylan, who helped raise the band’s exposure. The band added keyboardist Mark Naftalin, and its debut album, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was finally successfully recorded in mid-1965 and released later that year. The album reached number 123 in the Billboard 200 chart, but its influence was felt way beyond the sales figures. Jazz drummer Billy Davenport was invited to replace Sam Lay, who was ailing. In July 1966, the sextet recorded their second full length album, East-West. The album consisted of more varied material and reached number 65 on the album charts. The 13-minute instrumental track “East-West” incorporates Indian raga influences and some of the earliest jazz-fusion and blues-rock excursions, being described as “the first of its kind…and the root from which the acid rock tradition emerged.” Live versions of the song sometimes lasted an hour and performances at the San Francisco Fillmore Auditorium “were a huge influence on the city’s jam bands.” In spite of its success, the band soon changed its lineup. Arnold and Davenport left the band and Bloomfield went on to form his own band, Electric Flag. With Bishop and Naftalin remaining, the band added bassist Bugsy Maugh, drummer Phillip Wilson, and saxophonists David Sanborn and Gene Dinwiddie. This lineup recorded the band’s third album, The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw in 1967. The album cut back on instrumental jams and focused more on an R&B influenced horn-driven sound. It was Butterfield’s highest-charting album, reaching number 52 on the chart. Most of this line up performed at the seminal Monterey Pop Festival in the summer of 1967. On the next album, In My Own Dream, the band continued to move away from its roots in Chicago blues towards a more soul-influenced, horn-based sound. The album reached number 79 on the Billboard chart and by the end of 1968, both Bishop and Naftalin had left the band. The band was invited to perform at the Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969. They performed seven songs, and although its performance did not appear in the film Woodstock, one song, “Love March,” was included on the original album release Woodstock: Music From the Original Soundtrack and More, released in 1970. In 2009, Butterfield was included in the expanded 40th Anniversary edition Woodstock video, and an additional two songs appeared on the box set Woodstock: 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur’s Farm. Finally in August 2019, Rhino Entertainment released the web-only, 38CD/blu-ray, numbered and limited box set: Woodstock - Back to the Garden: The Definitive 50th Anniversary Archive which included Butterfield’s complete set. And if voted to win, Run Out Groove will issue this incendiary live set on vinyl for the very first time with new artwork and deluxe packaging!
