OOP Corner: Charlie Brown Gets A Valentine - Commencement

Posted: Saturday, May 8, 2010 by Fashion Munx in Labels: ,

This is the first in series of updates that will focus on albums, that while great pieces of music, unfortunately languish in out of print status thus making it quite difficult for the average listener to get a hold of.

Chances are you've never heard of Charlie Brown Gets A Valentine, they were a pop punk band from Chicago that existed from 1997 to 2004. The closest musical comparison I could make to them is fellow Chicago natives The Lawrence Arms. Y'know, a three piece, with two vocalists obviously influenced by Jawbreaker. In the course of their existence they released two fantastic LPs, a slew of great singles and a split album. Sadly, the only thing that is available for purchase is their second LP, Dismissed. So here I am posting Commencement, their first full-length release. I highly suggest picking up Dismissed from Whoa Oh Records if you like this one. Enjoy:

  1. CBGAV were from Maryland. Lucas now plays in Dead Mechanical. Jon plays in the AV Club. I don't think Costas is playing music right now. Good band.
