Album · 1988 · 16 Songs. See All. The Sound of a New World Being Born.

Crimpshrine was an American punk rock band from Berkeley, California. The group was formed in 1982 by Aaron Cometbus, founder of the seminal punk rock zine Cometbus, and future Operation Ivy vocalist Jesse Michaels. A tribute album to both Crimpshrine and Fifteen, called Can You Spare a Dime?, was released in 1998 by Microcosm Records. Although closely associated with the Gilman Street Project, Cometbus was quick to note in a 1988 interview with Flipside magazine that they were not a direct product of Gilman, having been established as a band years before the launch of the club. We helped them as much as they helped us because we are a part of it just as much," Cometbus. Duct Tape Soup (1992). The Sound of a New World Being Born (1998).

Originally released in 1989 on a German label, then on Lookout! in 1992, Crimpshrine's Duct Tape Soup is one of the most overlooked but highly regarded albums that helped redefine pop-punk. Influenced by their personal experiences of homelessness, drug addiction, and dumb luck, Crimpshrine always try to bring out the positive side of things no matter how bleak life can turn out. "You're sick of crying/You're sick of trying and you're ready to give up/But things look better if you separate them and deal with them one by one," says the gravelly voiced Jeff Ott.

Crimpshrine originally released Duct Tape Soup in 1989 on a German label. Duct Tape Soup is about as raw of a pop punk album as you will ever come across. It helped shape pop punk as we know it and was an influence to many pop punk bands of the 90’s such as Operation Ivy and Green Day. The production on this album is just as poor as you would expect it to be, but it definitely works towards the band’s advantage. It gives it the unpolished sound that a DIY band like Crimpshrine deserves.

Each song on Duct Tape Soup reads like a succinct, memorable chapter in a book about friendship, romance, and the desire to retain purity and individuality in a world of artificial substitutes, compromises and conformity; all of it is spiced with a warming optimism and a willingness to keep moving forward in spite of the tragedy. If you don't own this album, I'm not going to revoke your punk license, I'm just going to feel sorry that you're missing out on "the heart and soul of the East Bay," and one of the best kept secrets in punk rock.

2017 Numero Records Crimpshrine release. Before Green Day, Operation Ivy, and Lookout Records put the East Bay's burgeoning punk scene on the map, a trio of Berkeley kids were reinventing the genre with music that was melodic but full of feedback, and a singer who sounded like he gargled glass. Crimpshrine's debut EP was Lookout's fourth release, followed by an album, a second EP, and a slew of split singles and compilation tracks before the band imploded in 1989 after a ridiculous tour in a Ford Pinto hatchback.
