Learning To Fall

SoCal punk outfit SCHLEPROCK formed when the LA music scene was in a slump. Looking to change that, vocalist Doug Kane and guitarist Jeff Graham aimed for a strong rock unit in 1989, and within a year Ernie Berru (drums) and Sean Romin (guitarist) made it complete. Several 7" singles, such as "Do It All" and "Long Time Ago" were issued on Nemesis in 1991 and the band rollicked right on through countless gigs across North America. At a time grunge was king, SCHLEPROCK released the melodic hardcore "Propeller" on Dr. Strange in 1994 and continued to build a name for themselves. Bass player Dean Wilson was added to the lineup in 1995 and SCHLEPROCK's heavy punk snarl got bigger. Warner Bros. took notice and signed the band in 1996. Was SCHLEPROCK on their way to joining the "alternative" rock scene alongside Rancid and Green Day? Nah, they were far too nasty for such candy punk, and (America's) Dirty Little Secret exuded rock rawness. SCHLEPROCK's use of chants and hitting guitars harks back to classic Oi!, though SCHLEPROCK's sound is more withdrawn, steering away from the calculated abrasive aspects of traditional Oi!, mixing in standard punk influences. Fast-paced and challenging, SCHLEPROCK's sound sits apart from many harder American bands through an emphasis on smashing arrangements over speed-based aggression. Though the band scored a minor hit with "Suburbia" after signing to Warner Brothers during the punk re-emergence of the mid-'90s, the band splintered by 1997. Doug Kane and drummer Dirty Ernie regrouped to form THE GENERATORS who'd be back in circulation in 2001 with their debut album "Welcome to the End". In memoriam of guitarist Jeff Graham we have put together the definitive SCHLEPROCK retrospective. "Learning to Fall" contains 21 tracks that follow the band from beginning to end. It includes 6 previously unreleased tracks, several rare out of print tracks, and the demo that got them signed to Warner Bros. This tribute to the band is a must have for long time fans of the band and an excellent introduction for new fans. It is also our way of honoring the memory of our dearly departed friend, Jeff "Chiefy" Graham. For all of those who knew Jeff and were or will be touched by his music, a piece of him will be with us every time we spin this disc. Members: Doug "Dagger" Kane- Vocals "Dirty" Ernie Berru- Drums Jeff "Chiefy" Graham - Guitar, Backing Vocals Sean Romin - Guitar Dean Wilson - Bass, Backing Vocals
