A nice sampling of June’s music culled from various sources; namely, UNC’s WXYC radio broadcasts I taped, the band’s circulated demo cassette and tapes that Tricia and Kat gave me over the years. I digitized the cassettes in 2012 and have posted them in streaming format below so that you too can enjoy some of the lovely music this Chapel Hill band crafted with care and long hours, and the special places their music could take you.
All songs written by June: Cook/Gross/Magowan/Price/Tuttle, Copyright control,
except *”All Of Me” written by Simons/Marks.
I don’t have any digital versions of the band’s sole album/cd (and I gave my vinyl copy to original drummer Matt as a keepsake). As it’s still commercially available and considered an ‘official’ recording for an extant record label, none of the selections onboard yet are from their official 1996 Beggar’s Banquet full length release. Folks interested in that can still find cd copies as well as mp3 downloads and the odd rare vinyl copy on Amazon and itunes and should seek it out. If you take a look at the Video page, someone has (for the time being) uploaded most of it to YouTube.
Their third and final single before signing to Beggar’s, 1994’s double A-sided “Genius/All of Me” 45 produced by Mitch Easter, which was on the Squealer Records website until somewhat recently, has finally gone out of print; so now they are both onsite as well. I’ll also try to digitize my cassette version of their really fun Richard Hell cover “The Plan” from the North Carolina band compilation put together by Ross Grady. That compilation was a limited edition pressing of 1000 from 1995, so since it’s out of print and not commercially available anymore it fits our criteria. Also coming: their first A-side, “I am Beautiful” from spring 1993. If anyone has any decent live recordings they’d like to share, feel free to get in touch. Happy listening!
