Spineriders (Jason Molina’s Old Band) • Pitchfork, SPIN, MAGNET, Under the Radar, PopMatters, Line of Best Fit, etc.
Spineriders—the old band of the late, great Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co)—has seen some phenomenal press (some below). Misra co-released Spineriders Hello Future Tinglies with Aquabear Legion. AB is the Athens-OH based art collective of Molina’s boyhood friend and Spineriders/Songs: Ohia founding member Todd Jacops + Lorain, OH native/Admiral King H.S. Alum (Molina’s boyhood home/alma mater) Brian Koscho. Spineriders drummer Carl Raponi made some prints for the occasion (on sale as well) and provided some (forthcoming) video footage.
We pressed the album on cassette—an effort to stay true to the times in which this music was made. There are only 300 of these puppies in existence and they are going quick. Head here to purchase and support. All proceeds to Musicians Emergency Medical Association (memafund.org).
Spineriders plugged via Magnolia Electric Co + KEXP + Under the Radar + The Line of Best Fit + Exclaim!

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.
