Release: Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards
Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards was formed after Lars' friend and bandmate in Rancid, Tim Armstrong suggested writing songs about growing up in Campbell, California. The band was then put together as an outlet to release these songs, as well as covers of Billy Bragg's "To Have and to Have Not", Holland-Dozier-Holland's "Leaving Here" (which was also covered by Motörhead).
Originally released in 2001, this self-titled critically acclaimed album is hailed as a true ‘classic' by swarms of Rancid fans worldwide. Long out of print, it has become a very difficult record to find, so re-issuing this album is important to make sure that any fan can find a copy - and what better than to throw a few extra bells and whistles on there, giving everyone even more of a reason to pick one up.
This pressing includes an exclusive foil art print insert, lyric sleeve and high gloss cover; and the limited mailorder-exclusive 300 unit “smoke” version is bound to fly off the shelves!
This record contains a digital download card.

Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards - “Live And Loud!"
This unearthed live recording captures the level of energy that this band showed each time they hit the stage. Recorded in the spring of 2001, following the release of their debut LP, these iconic songs come through just as people will remember them: fast, loud, and hooky as hell - and always leaving you wanting more. Thankfully, THE BASTARDS delivered with the follow-up Viking LP.
Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards - “Viking”
Originally released in 2004 on Hellcat Records, “Viking” was the followup to the (S/T) debut album that brought this Rancid side-project into the limelight. Written by Lars and Tim Armstrong, and mixed by Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion), this album received an overwhelmingly great response from critics and fans alike. Along with a handful of tracks about Campbell, CA and a couple of covers (Shakin' Stevens / Anti-Nowhere League) “Viking” focused on a more recent period in Lars' life, and an array of topics that people have come to expect from this polific song writing duo. A slew of friends and fellow musicians contributed to this record, and the result is powerful and passionate, on all fronts.
