Sense Field - Living Outside: Their 5th full length originally released in 2003 by Nettwerk, this is the 2016 reissue from Spartan Records pressed on white/electric blue/silver tri-color. I ordered a few records from Spartan during their RSD weekend sale and those wonderful folks threw in this early 2000's emo/alt rock gem FO FREE along with a sweet record tote! (pic 2). Total classic from my high school days, RIP Jon Bunch.
Thanks for being awesome @spartanrecords!
Lucky Scars - Rock and Roll Party Foul EP - 2015 (Spartan Records)
"Lucky Scars is the last project of the late sense-field/further seems forever/ war generation front man, Jon Bunch. I’ve been been a fan of just about everything he was part since discovering Sense Field in the late 90s. Lucky Scars is just catchy punk rock and roll. Bandita was my feel good song of the year. I drank a million beers spinning this 7 inch. RIP JON BUNCH!" -Will Romeo
Our good friend, Will Romeo, of Gameday Regulars is our special guest curator this week. Some of you may have heard him performing solo as Townes Cosentino or playing guitar with Sammy Kay. Or maybe you've checked out his new band Crippled Earn. This week ,Will has chosen six songs for your listening pleasure and we have chosen four more from his discography.
You can find the song 'Bandita' in our playlist by searching "Bullying The Jukebox" in Spotify under playlists (paid and free users) or go to . New music every Friday!
Two years ago today we gave Jon Bunch a beautiful, emotional, powerful, and very fitting send off at the Yost Theater, in Santa Ana, CA. Chock full of amazing bands, and a full set of Sense Field, with special guest vocalists, playing Sense Field classics. It was one of the most magical experiences I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of, and I'll forever cherish the memory. RIP JON BUNCH. You and your voice are truly missed. 💔✊🏼
Zoom in on the poster in the third pic to see the crazy lineup of bands that played that day.. what a freakin show!
In early 1994, a bunch of us #buffalohardcore kids @edwardmichael, @patlavinator, and @gatrock (Gathering Ground), @staplesinger and @secretsequoia (Copper), Bob Whiteside (Snapcase), and Glenn Szymanski (Support) cycled in and out of a band called Blend. This show was the first time many of us personally met Jon Bunch and were able to witness his larger than life stage presence and heavenly voice. The experience is something none of us will soon forget.
@andylikeswords reminded me of this @fsfofficial acoustic show at @chainreactionca in 2005. I handmade this flyer. That night #FurthrSeemsForever was #JonBunch , @derickcordobaguitarist and I. And I believe we played Voice by @sensefield as well. Lots of friends and family there, very fond memories. Also, Takota killed it and The Color Turning were a really great band. #fsf#jonbunchforever#chainreaction
Not 100% sure where or when this picture of Jon Bunch was taken. Probably somewhere in Leeds on one of Sense Field's later European tours.
The first time I saw SF was in '95 supporting Four Walls Falling, and although not a fan at the time, there was something about Jon's vocals and presence on stage that drew me in. SF changed the way I listened to music, and 'Building' will probably always be my favourite record.
Jon gave me the original of the back cover picture when I hung out with him in 1989.
I didn't know Jon Bunch well, but in my time with him he was a lovely and kind person. A person with a sense of purpose. I just recently learned that he died last year. Another fucking overdose! Sadness.
We just unearthed two copies of our @sensefield "Living Outside" pressing on the "Orange/Mustard/Mint" Striped variant. This was the rarest variant limited to 100 copies and there's just one copy left now. Stake your claim of this variant or a few others at spartanrecords.com!
