For an official full-length, Mischief Brew needed a non-traditional studio (by punk standards), since the songs required a more varied instrumentation to bring forth the gypsy melodies and circus beats. Impressed by the work of Israeli producer Tamir Muskat (Balkan Beat Box, Firewater, Big Laz., Erik visited the Brooklyn studio that he runs. The album closes with Departure Arrival, a sweet folk lament about leaving the comforts of home for uncharted cities and towns. Departure was also featured on Up the Stairs and Through the Hall, a 2xCD compilation of independent artists and bands from Philadelphia.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part.
Anyways without further ado, this weeks souvenir is the album Songs From Under The Sink by folk punk band Mischief Brew. Mischief Brew is an anarcho folk punk band from Philadelphia that has been active in one way or another since 2000. Originally starting off as only Erik Petersen on vocals, guitar, and mandolin after his previous punk band The Orphans dissolved in 2000, the band has gained several more members over the years and has put out an impressive amount of work

Album Songs From Under the Sink. Beware, the tide's a'rising In the city of brotherly love The blood red lights were a'flashin As the cellars rose up in a flood And as they dragged you from the depths of mud, they beat you while you were down And then they tossed you in jail for a hundred years: Save a city, burn it down And. that's what they said As they tore your homes To the ground. Save a City retells the story of the 1985 MOVE bombing in Mischief Brew’s native city of Philadelphia. MOVE was a local activist group fighting for black liberation, guided by an anarchist philosophy. In 1985, after long-standing animosity with the police, a police helicopter dropped an improvised bomb on the MOVE compound, starting a fire which killed MOVE activists, their children, and destroyed homes all around the apartment compound.
