On August, 27, Misra will release Spineriders — the old band of Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co.) Hello Future Tinglies (1991) is being issued on cassette (limited pressing of 300) – an effort to stay true to the times. Act fast.
Spineriders guitarist/founding Songs: Ohia member Todd Jacops created an online memorial at spineriders.com and Spineriders drummer Carl Raponi produced a limited run of Jason Molina screen-prints (limited to 40) for the occasion. With the approval of the Molina family, all proceeds will go to the Musicians Emergency Medical Association (memafund.org). Aquabear Legion — an art collective in Athens, OH — is helping with the release as well. Head here to listen to “Instrumental 2″ and get a tiny glimpse. We’ll post more leading up to release. It’ll put a smile on your face.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Jason Molina played bass and sang backup vocals in the Spineriders — a Lorain, Ohio punk band attending nearby Admiral King High School. Our aim in unearthing Hello Future Tinglies is to provide an invaluable window into the life, circumstances and experiences of a young Northeast Ohio native whose extraordinary gift would grow, take form and awaken the world in innumerable ways.
Pre-order and support here. We hope you enjoy this artifact.
