———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
More than 10 years in the making, the concept album based on Fat Mike’s musical, HOME STREET HOME (playing now!), is here! Currently playing in San Francisco, there are plans on making it all over the US. This broadway style musical is a dark comedy about tough home lives, growing up on the streets and a host of other experiences. Featuring cameos from more old punkers you know that are too numerous to list and with some catchy tunes that will have you singing show tunes in no time. FAT busted these out in wither a standard ‘Black’’ color, the ‘Grey’ and ‘Blood Red’ AsideBside, or the unfortunately not pictured here ‘Grey’, ‘Blood Red’ and ‘White’ vertical striped tri color version. If you can’t make it to the acclaimed musical, or if you want to get pumped before you see it, just click your book marked link for the FAT website and get with the ordering.
