Alumni Corner : Help Marcellus Hall Complete His New Album



There's few reading this who didn't have their adolescence or adulthood dramatically improved by the songs of Railroad Jerk / White Hassle founder Marcellus Hall. Following a fantastic solo LP in 2011, 'The First Line',, he'd like to put the finishing touches on another masterpiece, but (see above) your assistance would be appreciated..



In addition, here's a trailer for Hall's new children's book, 'Everyone Sleeps'.

Bust Out Your Credit Card Dept. : A New Release From Marcellus Hall



Justifiably acclaimed for his work as an illustrator, Marcellus Hall is best recalled by some of us as the ridiculously talented vocalist/guitarist/songwriter whose recordings and performances fronting Railroad Jerk and White Hassle were some of the best things about living in New York City once upon a time. That said, Hall The Musician still has numerous tricks up his sleeve and as such, we're happy to pass along the news that Issac Brock's Glacial Pace label has released a new Marcellus Hall LP/CD/digital album, 'The First Line'. Our copy is in the mail, but we're gonna vouch for the musical contents, anyway. Not a month goes by that someone --- often a rather famous musican (or an extremely good looking woman) --- asks us, "just what is Marce Hall up to these days?" and the opportunity to give an answered more informed than "how the fuck should I know?" is no small cause for celebration.
