Alumni Corner : Help Marcellus Hall Complete His New Album

By Gerard on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

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..

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

By Gerard on Friday, February 25th, 2011

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.
