Mecca Normal Jarred Up on LP    

Mecca Normal is known as a fore-runner and inspiration to the riot grrrl movement in the 90s. As part of the regional DIY scene at that time, Mecca Normal co-founded the Black Wedge – anti-authoritarian poets and minimalist musicians "setting wild hearts free, spreading the damn difficult word of how to combine poetry with activist resistance culture". At the Black Wedge show in Olympia (1986) Jean and Calvin Johnson met and traded LPs – Mecca Normal's first album (later to be re-issued on K) for the first Beat Happening record. 

Guitar player David Lester is the author of "The Gruesome Acts of Capitalism" and publisher at Get To The Point Editions. His ongoing series of Inspired Agitators posters are featured in both the lecture and the Black Dot Museum of Political Art. Vocalist Jean Smith is a painter, filmmaker and the author of two published novels. She is the recipient of two Canada Council for the Arts Awards as a writer of creative fiction. She runs Smarten UP! Records, a DIY label for poets and minimalist musicians. 

Mecca Normal has released thirteen albums on Matador, Kill Rock Stars Records and K Records. Jarred Up is a mess of Mecca Normal songs pulled together from singles and compilations dating to 1992, rounding out the first eight years of their existence. Jarred Up's 21-tracks reveal the awesome might of their thing and it stands as the essential Mecca Normal document.
