To cap off a full year of touring – US, UK, and Canada, slackers! – in support of last year’s great LP “Don’t Worry It’s Not Contagious,” our resident Detroit rockers Jeremy Porter and The Tucos are kicking out a 7-inch to seal the fate of 2018 as a great year for GTG. “At Least She’s Still In Love With You” b/w “How About A Beer For Smokey The Bear?” continues this power trio’s winning streak of powerpop-Americana-garage rock that we’ve been privileged to be party to since joining forces in 2017. The guys have a pair of release shows this weekend to celebrate the new 7-inch – tonight at Village Idiot in Maumee, OH and Saturday for their only 2018 hometown show at PJ’s Lager House in Detroit! Stream the new 7-inch below and order it here!

We’ve already had a couple bangers from The Plurals, Extra Arms, Small Parks, and The Tucos, but let’s not let my lazy web-updating self drop the ball on the rest of ’em!

It’s out – “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Contagious,” the third LP from Jeremy Porter and The Tucos. This album features 11 songs of Replacements-y powerpop with elements of Americana and classic Detroit garage rock. The Detroit release show is this Friday 11/17 at PJ’s Lager House, and the Lansing release show is this Saturday 11/18 at The Avenue Cafe – both shows are GTG parties since The Plurals are playing too. Jeremy Porter and The Tucos came onto the GTG scene at a Mystery Garage show in 2015 and since then we’ve been sharing stages (and crowds) with them in various configurations around the Midwest. The Tucos are true road warriors and they’ll continue to bring their infectious and energetic sounds to stages around the US, Canada and beyond. Apologies if you find this album to be contagious after all – it’s out digitally, on CD, and on 180g vinyl manufactured at Third Man Record Pressing in Detroit. Hooray for GTG’s 2017 record series!
We’re proud to be dropping this slice of pop-rock goodness today from Detroit’s Jeremy Porter and The Tucos. Three tunes here, a song from their forthcoming LP “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Contagious” (out from us in November) plus two previously unreleased live recordings. This digital-only single is the first collaboration between us and our favorite Detroit trio but it’s far from the last. Stay tuned! GTG’s 2017 just keeps getting better!
Jeremy Porter & The Tucos brought their Detroit-made powerpop n’ roll to GTG House when they were touring with the Plurals earlier this spring and we’re happy to kick off the summer-ish time by releasing the latest episode of GTG Sessions, featuring four tunes by this power trio. Check out more of their music and tour dates here.
