The First Quarter: January, February And March
(Numbers On Napkins, Three Chord Mafia)
Bad Stain 36
Released on October 19, 2010
"The First Quarter" is the fifth release from Bad Stain Records & Laundromat Productions President Chase Stain, who is better known for his work with his bands, Numbers On Napkins and Three Chord Mafia. Stain's new album features all of the tracks from the first three E.P.'s in his "Month" series. All the songs from "January", "February" and "March" have been re-mastered, and Stain has even recorded two extra bonus tracks exclusively for the album. "The First Quarter" ia a blend of styles, showing Stain's wide range of musical taste. Although the album stays true to his punk roots, songs are a fusion of new wave, folk, alternative, jazz, experimental rock, indie and good old rock n' roll. "The First Quarter" is a wonderful collection and representation of Stain's work.
