JuiceheaD and Osaka Popstar Take On Fugazi Classic

04/11/2012
.
(GA) JuiceheaD and Osaka Popstar have teamed up to take on the challenge of covering the Fugazi classic, "Waiting Room."

A limited copy of the cover's 7" will be released on Record Store Day (April 21st) with exclusive artwork by world-renowned Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant Art/Studio Number One).

Long-time Misfits and Ramones collaborator, John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), who just edited and contributed an afterword to the recently released Johnny Ramone autobiography ("Commando"), and Misfits Records artist JuiceheaD took the classic track and pumped up the volume with heavy guitar riffs and the call and response chants by the two vocalists trading off.

"I reached out to Dischord (Fugazi's label) about covering the song and eventually had the pleasure of speaking to Ian MacKaye personally about it" says Cafiero. "Conceptually, it was intimidating because talking to Ian MacKaye about covering "Waiting Room" is like walking on metaphorical hallowed ground. But he's truly someone that lives up to his ethos."

The release features 50 hand numbered and signed 18" x 24" screen prints that will be available at select record stores on Record Store Day, signed by John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), Casey Rider (of Studio Number One), and Shepard Fairey (of Obey Giant Art). The goal of the release is to reawaken the fun and experience of seeking out treasures from your local record store. "Indie Record shops have always been a breeding ground of great music, art, culture and ideas, but they're becoming casualties of modern circumstance," Cafiero says of Record Store Day. "It's exciting and inspiring that artists and individuals are pulling together in recognition of that, and working to create a grass roots uprising in support of maintaining the existence of these small hubs that once were, and to many still are, sacred staples in our society."

The release features an exclusive etched B-side showcasing the iconic Shepard Fairey sleeve art on black vinyl with a 1-in-10 chance at a red etched vinyl variant. The 7-inch will also include a free digital download card with the MP3s of the new single, plus extended "Time Bomb Remix" of the track. Participating Record Store Day stores are competing to be among those with extremely limited edition prints of the signed cover art for use in their Record Store Day celebrations. Record Store Day will also give away a few of these very collectible prints on their website, www.recordstoreday.com. A signed and numbered edition exclusive to the Osaka Popstar and Misfits Records online shops will be announced and available to the general public.
