This here is the last recorded Sin Men release – courtesy of Jensen. Great record! Also, it is so interesting to use this site to sort of track the band as they moved through time. I guess that is one of the reasons I like doing this.
Sin Men debut CD release from 1999. I love this record and always have. This thing got me through many homesick nights in New York. Some of the best times of my life were playing shows with the Sin Men back in the late 90’s. Miss that shit man.
This is a promo CD from Jesse P’s collection. I think this was sent out to clubs and radio trying to drum up shows. This is a great representation of the Sin Men at the time. Big shout out to Benny for filling in all the titles!
Man I wish i had been there for this show. I probably missed it by a week. Anyhow, Jesse, Benny, CC, McGonagle, and HA on bass. Seriously good energy here and a pretty decent recording. ‘Black Box’ is one of my favorite songs and I think this is the only legit recording of it.
This is rad. An early live Sin Men show with mean heshers and all. This is a great recording and a super fun moment in time. Hopefully someone can fill in the blanks about where and when.
Here are some later Sin Men instrumentals – these are studio takes with lots of banter type stuff in between. Check out the jah shit at the end!
This tape is rad. It starts off with a trippy Shine On Sweet Ladybug by Ethan, and is followed by an entire tape of the dudes working up a song – The Bees. That ended up getting played by the Glowbugs at Gilman. Track 24 comes around and we basically have what seems to be a people switch and CC is suddenly in. So the tape goes on and on and finally last track at the end, ‘The Bees’ all comes together.
I love this fucking song. Cuts off at the end though – the tape wasn’t long enough. lol.
Here is some more early Sin Men from Ray. Just a quick 3 songs from a boombox or 4 track. Happy Birthday!
Here is a tape Ray Johnson sent me that he had labeled “Earliest Sin Men”. Nice boombox / 4 track recordings and outtakes. There is some Sin Men gold here if you dig in. Thanks Ray!
