Some pun on Lifetime.

They're back! Not only is Jade Tree bringing you the full-on 2-disc package of rarities and goodies from the golden years of New Brunswick, NJHC's feel-good crew Lifetime, but it would appear that lucky west-coasters will get a chance to see Lifetime play a smattering of reunion shows this month. A smattering indeed!

Katz and Golley resurfaced in Zero Zero a few years after Lifteimes's disappearance, before Ari went on to Miss TK and The Revenge, and Yemin has been hard at work, first with Philly's Kid Dynamite (who are sporting their own retrospective DVD over at Jade Tree), and, more recently with Wagenschutz in the severely intense Paint It Black. St. Hillaire plays in The Fire Still Burns, Palaitis in Neutral Mute, and Martin was in an early iteration of Jets to Brazil. All artists well worth having in your stacks, many of them released by Jade Tree as well. You could save yourself a lot of trouble by just buying JT's entire back catalog.

And! And! As if the Garden State weren't getting enough attention thanks to the Alito hearings and the Lautenberg/Whitman double-shot introduction, the 'Time have seen fit to name their new collection, Somewhere in the Swamps of Jersey, after their own song of the same name, which was or was not a not-so-subtle tribute to the McSpringsteenster.
