How do you describe a band that should be a household name?  Armchair Martian formed in 1993 in Ft. Collins, CO. In 1995, the band self-released a demo cassette.  Shortly after, they would sign with then-powerhouse Cargo Music/Headhunter Records and tour regularly (including stints with Lagwagon). After Cargo ceased label activities, Armchair Martian moved to Joey Cape's My Records (remember the Lagwagon reference earlier?) after the turn of the century. Around this time, Armchair leader Jon Snodgrass would form Drag The River, a soon-to-be torchbearer for alt-country and Americana, along with Armchair drummer Paul Rucker and ALL singer Chad Price. Jon then moved both bands to Denver's Suburban Home Records and as Drag got busier, Armchair was less so.  As the 00's turned to the 10's, Jon would establish himself as a standout solo acoustic artist. Armchair and Drag shows occurred occasionally but rarely. The entire Armchair Martian discography went out of print.  Most of it still remains unavailable digitally. Now it's 2019 and Denver-based Snappy Little Numbers Quality Audio Recordings is the reissuing the Armchair Martian "Demo" on cassette/digital! It will be released on 11/22/19 and Armchair Martian will be playing the Blasting Room 25th Anniversary show at Washington's in Ft. Collins on 11/23/19 to celebrate the release as well as the birthday for the region's top studio for punk royalty. It's perfect timing as the Armchair demo was one of the earliest recordings done at the Blasting Room. This cassette will be the only physical in-print and broadly available digital Armchair Martian release in years, so if you've been digging for their tunes, SLN has you covered with the one that started it all!
