LARS FREDERIKSEN AND THE BASTARDS formed after Lars’ friend and band mate 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” and 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 was very difficult record to find, so re-issuing this album was 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.
