Secret treasure of the vanguard queercore and riot grrrl era, Longstocking’s Once Upon a Time Called Now was both the odd duck out and, ironically, the recording with perhaps the boldest natural magnetism. Thanks to the confident, characterful immediacy of guitarist and lead vocalist Tamala Poljak’s pop songcraft and the band’s skilled yet quirky musicianship, it’s got a sound that leaps from the speakers to embrace listeners or shake them by the shoulders. Everyone from Donna Dresch to Vaginal Creme Davis to Phranc adored Longstocking. Today, with a vinyl release featuring new artwork by Portland painter Nathan Paul Rice, this ten-song collection is set to claim the broader, more diverse audience it deserves.
Queer punk-pop superheroes Infinite X’s formed around the turn of the century in San Francisco and Los Angeles as a collaborative project featuring Jody Bleyle (Team Dresch, Hazel), Tamala Poljak (Longstocking, Automaticans), Whitney Skillkorn (Little Deaths, Fighter D) and Scotty Walsh (Automaticans). At the time the idea of a noncommittal project was freeing and fun for these musicians. While many bands are lucky to have one good singer-songwriter, Infinite X’s had three.
Originally released in 2002 by Chainsaw Records and produced by Richard Baluyut from Versus, the 12-track album Infinite X’s is full of should-have-been hits and has been remastered and repackaged (vinyl!) for your fresh ears. Inclusive, infectious and raw, the album is packed with pent-up angst and love songs to exes who changed your life. Featuring members of Team Dresch, Longstocking, Automaticans and Little Death, the record is recommended for fans of Sleater-Kinney and Scrawl.
