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!
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!
But first! The Stick Arounds are celebrating ten years as a band and they’re having a big ol’ shinding at The Avenue Cafe on Friday November 15! Joining the Sticks are GTG Family The Plurals, Jeremy Porter and the Tucos plus Detroit’s Popular Creeps!
Capping off a staggering four releases this spring is Jeremy Porter’s solo EP 1987. Jeremy is our resident Detroit dude and he knows his way around a tune. This is our fourth release with him and it’s a pleasure to share more of his acosutic side after three punky releases with his band The Tucos. 1987 is available digitally and on CD now, get it!
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.
