The East Bay Band Fifteen Was Led by Jeff Ott, One of the Most Interesting Figures in the Punk Rock Movement
Sexually Abused as a Child and Homeless in His Teens, Ott Brings a Vulnerable, Personal Touch to Topics Like Racism, Drug Addiction, and Pacificism That Sets Him Apart from Many of His Punk Peers
Ott’s Unique, Untrained Voice Also Makes Fifteen’s Music More Approachable Than Most in the Genre
Their Third Album, 1994’s Buzz, Is Considered By Most to Be Their Best
Used Copies of Its Short-Lived Initial Vinyl Release Go for Huge Sums
Real Gone Music’s First Ever Vinyl Reissue Comes in Maroon Vinyl
Limited to 1000 Copies
Jeff Ott, the leader of Fifteen, is one of punk-rock’s most intriguing figures. Sexually abused as a child and homeless in his teens, Ott brought a personal perspective to such topics as pacificism, drug addiction, and racism that was a refreshing break from the doctrinaire rant ‘n’ cant that marred many a punk song, and his voice—while definitely untrained—lent his music a vulnerable, everyman touch. This record, the third by his band Fifteen, is reckoned by most to be their finest, and because it came out in 1994, it was only out on vinyl for a heartbeat, and therefore sells for inappropriately lofty sums. Real Gone’s reissue of this classic East Bay punk album comes in maroon vinyl limited to 1000 copies!
