Adeline Records will be releasing "The Thing That Ate Larry Livemore" compilation on May 29th featuring the future of Punk Rock and more.
Livermore was asked by Green Day's frontman Billy Joe Armstrong to make the compilation and at first, Livermore did not want to do it.
"When Billie Joe asked me to put together this compilation, my first reaction was to say, 'Absolutely not.' I was too busy with other projects, and besides, I'd been saying for years that I was done with the music business, that people should take me out and shoot me if I ever showed any sign of wanting to get back into it,"
"But then I realized that this was an opportunity to do for a whole new crop of bands what we'd been able to accomplish at Lookout back in the 80s and 90s, which was to bring exciting and passionate music to the attention of a public that might otherwise never get to hear it. Once I thought about it in that light, it was impossible to say no."
Livermore ran Lookout records, which first introduced us to bands like Green Day, Operation Ivy, Rancid, Screeching Weasel and many more.
