    “If you want to delve into Seattle’s seethingly creative history in the days before Grunge put the city on the world map for good (and you should) I’d suggest you grab hold of a copy of a stunning 2CD collection called ‘It Crawled From The Basement’: a generous 47-track compendium gathering together many of the city’s underground movers and shakers firing on all cylinders during a remarkable period circa 1983 to 1991.” Tim Peacock – whisperin and hollerin

    “Over the eight years of GMR’s existence, founder Tom Dyer amassed a formidable stash of smart pop thrills. … Ignore the best of this double dose of forty-seven pre-grunge charms at your aesthetic peril.” Popmatters

    “Before mass media wanted to pigeonhole Seattle as having a “sound”, this was music from bands who only knew of one sound: the Puget one. Historical? Maybe, but it’s good times represented by good sounding music from an era that pushed others to get off their asses and rock out, before coffee and binary codes dominated our (un)consciousness.” John Book

about

1983 to 1991 in Seattle, Washington. All things were possible in the post-punk world - the Nirvana grunge explosion had not yet subsumed the city. In this world, Green Monkey Records came and lived and went. It was rock. It was art. It was beautiful.

This 47 track masterpiece covers the label’s 44 releases, with tracks by 32 artists. This set is a vital link in the post-punk pre-grunge Seattle music world, it is history that rocks, fer chrissakes. Album features the Green Pajamas’ Kim the Waitress as well as two previously unreleased Pajamas tracks.

Green Monkey’s first release since 1995 is a retrospective that marks the beginning of a new era. This CD is the first of many new releases for the label, with re-releases of back catalog, various historical oddities and all-new materialby GMR superstars on the way!
