Product Details


For those wondering where we're headed after Eccentric Soul: A Red Black Green Production and Codeine: When I See The Sun, your wait is over.

At the launch of the Numero label near-on a decade ago, we already had a massive hard-on for power pop, glam, and regional bar rock. This arousal led to the double disc Yellow Pills: Prefill compilation, which was intended as the first entry in a series that, we regret to report, got stalled out in committee. Seven years after its release, YP became the first Numero effort to be put to sleep. Emails began trickling in about the missing catalog number: Would YP ever be issued on vinyl? Would there ever be a second volume? Was The Toms track "Sun" actually recorded in the '80s? Hoping to satiate the masses, the Numero brain trust has conceived Buttons as our brand-spanking-new power pop umbrella, and is pleased to announce the first two titles in the series:

044 Buttons: From Champaign To Chicago CD/2LP:
An homage to the prairie state Numero calls home, From Champaign To Chicago is a 19-track survey of Illinois' Cheapest Tricks. Reaching back to 1973 and Peoria outliers the Jets and ending in 1987 with Romeoville's Julian Leal and his Dick Clark approved "Get Away," From Champaign to Chicago connects, via map, pins, and string, the various scenes that pockmarked the face of the Land of Lincoln.

004 Buttons: Starter Kit 2LP:
Our entry-level power pop compilation features 20 songs from the original 004, plus two bonus cuts, new liners, tons of sleeve scans, photos, and ephemera, all housed in a spot varnished, brick-thick gatefold sleeve.
