This Real Gone release will have power pop fans squealing with delight! Named after a breed of hog known for being great producers with oversized ears and genitalia, the Durocs were the brainchild of Scott Mathews and Ron Nagle, each of whom came to the project with an impressive pedigree. Mathews had played at the Fillmore with Elvin Bishop at the age of 15, formed a band (Ice) with future Journey lead singer Steve Perry, and, with the guidance of music industry legends Jack Nitzsche and David Rubinson, was one of the music industry’s most sought-after session men and producers. Nagle, meanwhile, had been the main singer-songwriter and keyboard player in the Mystery Trend and had released a cult classic solo album produced by Nitzsche, Bad Rice. Together, the two wrote songs for legendary artists that sold in the millions and released their own album in 1979 that received a 5-star rating in Rolling Stone and scored some European hits—then promptly proceeded to torpedo their career by, as legend has it, breaking into a Capitol Records sales meeting with midgets blasting fanfare trumpets and squealing pigs running through the legs of record executives.

Now, for the first time EVER, and with the full cooperation of Mathews and Nagle, this legendary album is being reissued on CD with no less than eight unreleased “bone us” tracks, complete with liner notes penned by Gene Sculatti featuring quotes from the duo and pictures from their private archives. Power pop fans—it’s time to bring home the bacon.
