Blurb:

Further was a decidedly west coast indie rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1991 by brothers Darren and Brent Rademaker, Josh Schwartz and Kevin Fitzgerald. The Rademaker brothers along with Josh went on to form Beachwood Sparks and The Tyde respectively, Kevin Fitzgerald became the drummer for the Circle Jerks and the west coast lo-fi California indie rock sound actually became a thing with the kids.

Overdosing on Weed, Surfing and Dinosaur Jrs “You’re Living All Over Me” as well as flat out turning down major label offers, Further was fuelled by DIY spirit and their music tested the boundaries from the lowest of fidelity to the indie-est of rock…with releases on Bongload Records (home of Beck’s Loser 12”), their own Christmas Records, Ball Product (Creation Records), Fierce Panda and many more.

Further received acclaim from the UK press including a 9 out of 10 review in the NME as well as Peel Session from long time fan John Peel.

Further were a permanent fixtures on the LA indie scene where they shared bills with everyone from the likes of Pavement, Beck, Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Royal Trux, Urge Overkill, Archers of Loaf, Codiene…real indie-rock, you get the picture?

Friends of Lou Barlow from Dinosaur Jr, Further had a knack of exploding into Dinosaurs sonic territory. When Further went on tour with Sebadoh in the 90s, Lou was asked by the NME if he had anything to say to J Mascis…? Lou replied smugly…”ever heard FURTHER?”

A note regarding postage costs:

All amounts used are reductions on the actual shipping cost we pay Royal Mail as shipping charges to the US. Canada and non-European countries are higher than we would believe is appropriate.

SummerStage has been celebrating Fania Records’ 50th anniversary all summer. The Fania All Stars Reunion that was supposed to take place tonight was cancelled earlier this month, but you’ll still be dancing if you show up because DJs will be playing and remixing Fania hits.
