Staying Home… One Year Later

Holy smokes, has it been a year?!?? Just over a year ago as the stay-at-home order was issued in Michigan we started doing daily videos of GTG family and friends in quarantine. Weird times, but the solidarity experienced was a pretty awesome thing to take in, though we’re not quite ready to start getting pandemic nostalgia. Here’s a playlist of Staying Home With GTG Records from spring 2020, and there are a few more on the GTG facebook that never got uploaded to youtube. Glad we’re all still here!

Friday Night With The Wild Honey Collective and Jeremy Porter (3/5/2021)!

Tune into BESTFRIENDSCLUB.US or the BFC facebook group this Friday at 9 PM for a great streaming show from The Wild Honey Collective and Jeremy Porter – both GTGers with new releases in 2021!

Jeremy Porter and The Tucos New Album “Candy Coated Cannonball” OUT NOW

We haven’t had a January run this great since… ever? Referring strictly to GTG Records here but… there are signs elsewhere too! Today we’ve got a new long-player out from the best Detroit power-trio-founded-by-a-yooper-whiskey-drinkin-with-a-smile-rock-and-roll-band in all the land – Candy Coated Cannonball by Jeremy Porter and The Tucos! Stream/download and order it on vinyl and CD here.

This is an eleven song slab of the kind of righteous rock and roll that we all desperately need right now. Great riffs, catchy choruses, simultaneously slacker-y and polished, hints of Americana, Cheap Trick moments, Lemonheads echoes, literal references to both Minutemen and Big Star… sign me up! Pick up the record, pore over the notes, and memorize these songs cuz as soon as it’s safe these guys are gonna be on the road to save rock and roll, again! Check out the lyric video with behind-the-scenes footage for lead single “Dead Ringer” below!

Jeremy Porter “Dead Ringer” single and New Album!

To start our New Year, Jeremy Porter and The Tucos have a new single called “Dead Ringer” to slink into your ears! And they’ve got a new album out on 1/22! Our friends over at PencilStorm have all of the details today, but you can stream/download the single below, and follow the link to pre-order the album on vinyl and CD! Happy New Year, already!

Bermuda Snowhawk 2020!

Cheers!

WATCH: GTG Fest 2020

The whole darn thing, GTG Fest 2020! A great time and still a fest, as weird and not-in-person as it was. Thanks to all who played and all who watched!

GTG Fest 2020 – Online! (UPDATED w/ Schedule)

You didn’t think we’d let COVID take away GTG Fest did ya? The 13th annual GTG Fest will be coming to you SATURDAY OCTOBER 10, following you on your mobile devices, lurking in the corner of your home on your smart TV, somehow popping up on that confusingly not-discarded Windows 98 Gateway tower that hasn’t been connected to the internet since 2001… EVERYWHERE!

Did I make watching a livestream briefly sound a little exciting? Well, we’re gonna do our best to bring some of the magical GTG Fest chaos to the streams. This thing’ll be streaming live from 4-10 at the GTG facebook page AND on the GTGRecordsTV youtube channel for all you fellow facebook haters out there. The show must go on!
