About 30 years ago, a bunch of kids in the Bay Area formed a group called The Lookouts. Guitarist and singer Larry Livermore would later go on to found Lookout Records, the band that first introduced Green Day to the planet. And on the subject of Green Day, the Lookouts’ drummer was a 12 year-old kid named Tre Cool.
Unfortunately for Green Day completists, the Lookouts’ material–two albums, two EPs and a bunch of stray singles–has been out of print for years. But come March 10, a collection called Spy Rock Rock (And Other Stories) will be released through Don Giovanni records. It features the original album and a selection of other tracks. If you’re a Green Day fan, you’ll want it.
