  • Chris Newman was a Portland, Oregon songwriter, singer, and guitarist. In 1981, Wipers' Greg Sage recorded his bands' first tracks for his Trap label. In 1984, Chris's band, Napalm Beach, recorded this album, Pugsley, on 4 track and distributed it on cassette at the bands numerous gigs in Portland and Seattle, where it caught the attention of many in the underground... Then it was lost for many years. A few weeks ago, a local record store owner transferred the tape he purchased in 1985 to MP3 and gave it back to the songwriter. http://www.skullmanrecords.com/2011/04/09/napalm-beach-pugsley/ With Chris's permission, it is here to listen and download. If you like it, please pass the link on.
  • I'm not a music expert but how come the typical bands associated with Portland are not featured? Obvious examples would be The Dandy Warhols, Elliot Smith or The Decemberists? Anyone have any comments? Check out the discrepancy to see what I mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Oregon
