Today we are releasing an EP by Baby Flamehead. The band existed around Philadelphia circa the late 1980’s, early 1990s, and recorded a few releases. Notable to us, it features the early guitar work of Chris Unrath, who went on to play with Mimirock, and our all time favorite band, Helen Back and The Str8-Razors. Maybe more noteable to the world, the band also featured drummer, Dean Sabatino, from The Dead Milkmen.
The release today was an EP they had recorded, which was never released. Titled ‘3rd Story‘, it features 5-songs of acoustic style music that is pretty damn good.
We are excited to be ressurecting a part of indie music history, and helping to connect some dots by sharing some awesome music!
Last year, Gary pulled his album Pathfinder, which had been out for a month, because essentially, he didn’t feel right about it. In it’s place, ‘Anarchist At The Museum’ was released.
Well after a year of perspective on the songs, Gary has decided it should be out, so today we are re-releasing the Pathfinder record.
We are also releasing as an official release, ‘When You’re Gone / Monday, Monday, Monday‘, two covers Gary had recorded and just put on youtube last year; a cover of a Cranberries’ song, backed with a cover of a Tegan and Sara song.
Both are out now, and streaming everywhere!
We are excited to announce a new addition to the OVOLR! family… Wrong Worshippers will be joining us to do an EP! In preperation for that, we put together a video, giving some background on the band, and the upcoming EP, titled ‘Not Actually Live from Hep’s Garage’.

For the past few months, we were talking with some friends about reissuing some important records they had made. One group of them, was the Wardance Orange records, the other set of songs, was this, Bad Guy Reaction’s ‘A Handbook’, the band that KC and Greg went on to form Wardance Orange from.
Bad Guy was an influential (and I can’t stress that word enough), band to a lot of the folks coming in to the RVA punk scene in 1993-1994, they had amazing songs, a cool as fuck sounds, and were amazing live. And their tape, was one of the best sounding ones that had been done locally as well.
We def want to thank the band members for working on this with us, as well as engineer Mark Miley, who still had the original masters from when he recorded both Bad Guy, and Wardance. His care to his work, made these two things possible, for sure.
The record is streaming everywhere now, enjoy!
