As revealed earlier in the week, Larry Livermore is going to be putting out a record with Adeline Records. According to Larry's most recent blog post, it looks as though the title will be "The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore" - inspired by the name of a double LP Larry released with David Hayes on Lookout Records in the late 1980's, called The Thing That Ate Floyd.

Larry explains how the idea for the record came about:

"One of the kids listening to The Thing That Ate Floyd back in 1988 was a 16 year old named Billie Joe Armstrong, who was just starting to play shows with his new band. Through it he got introduced to bands from all over Northern California, one of them being the Lookouts, whose 16 year old drummer Tre Cool would himself end up playing a significant role in Billie's musical future.

Fast forward to the 21st century, and now Billie's got a 16 year old kid of his own, Joey, who's playing shows with his first band. In the summer of 2011, Joey's band goes out on tour and plays shows with a bunch of bands up and down the West and East Coasts, and Joey comes home full of excitement for all the great stuff that's happening out there. He talks it over with his dad, and the next thing I know, I'm getting a call from Billie Joe: "Hey Larry, would you be interested in putting together a compilation of your favorite current bands for Adeline Records?""

We'll keep you posted with further updates as we get them. The record is tentatively scheduled for an early 2012 release at the moment.
