GET HIP RECORDINGS Pittsburgh, PA's Best Garage and R&R label since 1987!

BLURT Honors THE CYNICS’ Modern Classic “ROCK’N'ROLL”

BLURT is helping The Cynics celebrate the 25th anniversary of their landmark album Rock’N'Roll (1990) with an in-depth feature detailing the record’s creation, reception, and lasting impact on the music industry.

Cynics frontman Michael Kastelic and guitarist/Get Hip label-owner Gregg Kostelich provide commentary and insight on the band and its classic album in an extensive and exclusive interview.

Via BLURT:

“Pittsburgh, aka Steel City because of the once-dominant steel manufacturing industry, used to be one of America’s most polluted cities, sending industrial contaminants far and wide. Meanwhile, local garage outfit the Cynics, who formed in the mid ’80s and debuted in 1987 with Blue Train Station followed by 1988’s 12 Flights Up, were busy working on a legacy of a different sort, one which would ultimately provide a template for bands around the world to make their way in the cold cruel world of the music industry. The band, featuring core members Gregg Kostelich on guitar and Michael Kastelic on vocals, has gone through several incarnations since its inception. Along the way, the band’s label, Get Hip Records, established by Kostelich at the outset, has managed to keep alive a fiercely independent work ethos in the face of tremendous upheaval throughout the aforementioned industry…”
