Atari, a hardcore band from Kutztown, Pennsylvania that was active in the 1990s, now has their complete discography available on all major streaming services through the digital label Spaghetti Dinner Records.
The digital release has been remastered and includes their first eight-song demo, their first 7-inch “We’ll Be Fighting,” and their second 7-inch “Too Tired to Drive Home,” as well as bonus tracks such as compilation songs from Ray Cappo’s “Rebirth of Hardcore” on Supersoul Records and Teamwork Records’ “Growing Stronger” compilation.
The release also includes live tracks and the song “Joystick Fury” from their split 7-inch with Carpenter Ant.
“We are excited to get these songs out on the streaming interwebs for all the kids to enjoy, who knows maybe this leads to our first #1 single,” says Brett Barto, frontman of the band.
Streaming services where Atari discography is available: Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Apple Music, Tidal, iTunes, Instagram/Facebook, YouTube Music, Amazon, Soundtrack by Twitch, Pandora, Tidal, and iHeartRadio.
Back in the day Atari originally released these songs on 7-inches on Teamwork Records, Broken Man Records and Sitton Records. A CD discography was released in 2004 through Broken Man Records. In 2010 there was a German vinyl release of the discography on Prugelprinz Records. Members of Atari also played in fellow Kutztown indie emo band The Jazz June.
The band, still friends to this day, is and always will be rooted in friendships, having fun, and posi-hardcore worship of those ’80s and ’90s bands who came before them.
