Run Away Laughing

Before Waxwing, before Lying On Loot and before branching off into what has come to be an absolutely stellar solo career, Rocky Votolato was playing in a band with some high school friends called Run Away Laughing. This is an album that was released I believe sometime around '94 or '95 and it should definitely appeal to fans of bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Thirty Ought Six or any of Rocky's other work
There are a few sound issues with this rip as my copy of this cassette is rather worn out at this point, this tape rarely left my walkman in those days. If anyone out there has a better quality copy of this release I would be very grateful if you could upload it somewhere and send me a link.

March 15th

March 15th were a post hardcore band from the greater Seattle area that existed from the late 90's into the early 2000's. They originally started off as a typical three piece (guitar/bass/drums) but, after taking a queue from the Blood Brothers multi-vocal approach, expanded to a five piece, adding two additional vocalists and further increasing the fury and intensity of their sound. Members of the band have gone on to play in such groups as: Ravenna Woods, Monogamy Party, Navigator vs Navigator, Fires to the East and Skyline Divide
