Raised by Seuss on vinyl! [skate soundtrack related]



From what I can piece together Raised by Seuss was a group from San Jose who released one cassette EP and then promptly vanished forever. Of interesting note, is that most of the EP was used for background music on the skate video 411 VM #3, released in 1993. Luckily for all of us, Age of New Medina Music plans to release the whole thing on vinyl!

Age says:
These are cats that I grew up with and this, got some fame from 411VM® (A skateboarding Video Magazine). It was used during the “Metrospective” segment For San Jose, Scott Johnston's Part and other various segments. As far as I know, there is one other person (besides myself) that has a master copy of this and they used to or still work to at 411VM® (you need to stop bootlegging this).The Original DAT was destroyed because they could not afford to pay off the studio time and was never released to them (with the exception when I had it in my hands to turn into the video suite) Which, I was lucky enough to record back in '93. They had one demo before this (89-90) which was ok and had this dude Steve and after this EP, Troy (True One) did one more song(that I remember) and never recorded anything else (at least that I know of).He was or still is playing guitar & singing in a hardcore punk group(last time I saw him '02).So, the track I picked is called "Face The Music".

About the vinyl:

Raised By Suess:S/T LP (limited vinyl release)
Some of you might remember it from my "ISH" review and also, was in the 411VM years ago (San Jose Metrospective). Was and is still considered, highly sought after material. Since I have the only master and they are the homies, we decided it was about time to give this a proper release with not only both first demos, but a couple of nice bonus tracks you most def, do not want to pass up on. We are only doing a small limited run on vinyl(300 to 500 max) and there will be no digital release of it.

That beat uses the same sample as the track "disgusting" by Gangta N-I-P off his first record South Park Psycho. Sick.

Hey homie,

Thanks for posting this up. There will be a release soon. We are just working out the kinks and it will be availble I hope sometime soon.

I went to school with both Troy & Steve. Grew up with them, Skateboarded with them, and so on! It's about time (as all parties agree) that this is put out and documented. Raised by Suess, Harvest Children, and Next of Kin were all part of the same collective. Smith Ave was the spot

They played a big roll in the SJ Rap scene(for what little time they were a crew) and worked with many folks. I'm hyped to just be a part of this and give to do something that should have been done years ago.

Thanks for the blurb about this and will keep you folks informed!

Peace,
Adrian M(age)

Just to let you know: The Raised by Seuss lp, is finally available, and in limited quantities too.

It'd be foolish to pass up on it, but there are only 12 of the test pressing bundles left and 9 of the single test pressings, available.

They are available at these two sites and please, share! Thanks for your support and we'll keep you posted!

----

A few interesting things:

The colored vinyl, isn't the rarest of the lot. The test pressings, are black and only 55 copies (but only 25 were publicly issued out and the rest are going to those involved in the project, primary those who help run the label and membership of RBS)

The official release, with the jacket this is the breakdown:

100 speckled
175 marbled

and

25 black ( 20 are exclusive to DWB, only)

So, when you place an order: Be specific of which version(s) you'd like and quantity, please.

Also:

There are only 12 of the bundles left (9 copies at Big Cartel and 3 copies at The Bandcamp site) and those include the cassette version, with extra tracks and I'll be including a data disc, so that way you don't have to realtime record anything.

I will up the ante on the last two bundles , with something I only made six copies of, and it's only for the bundle.

It's a special lathe cut record 7in, and will be numbered and go accordingly with the bundle. Again, only two will be issued out)

Peace and many thanks .

(3 copies of the bundle there)

and

Peace!

Thanks and speak soon!
