Naked Raygun – Huge Bigness
- Naked Raygun
- Quarterstick Records
Huge Bigness, the name lifted from an early poster, is the promo-only CD that encompasses the Quarterstick expanded CD reissues of the Naked Raygun catalog up to that point of time. The first three titles had never been released on CD. The band was content reproducing the album art as it was but Jay Castaldi, Ed Roach and myself felt the packaging should also include extras. Ed and Jay to collected statements about Naked Raygun from their peers. In addition to the items from the band members personal collections Nels Akerlund, Susan Alzner, David Arnoff, Christine Barr, Mark Blankenship, Gail Butenski, Rick Cosaro, Diane Deitrich, Dino Glasso, Greg Dunlap, Bonnie Graham, Mark Harris, Aadam Jacobs, Stefan Jenuwein, Kenji Kerins, John Kezdy, Andrea Langdon, Jaynie Lesniak, Lou Lombardo, Vince Lombardo, Bill Morby, Jim Rooney Karen M. Wehrle and Kim Wilson shared their memorabilia; flyers, photos, set lists, Free Shit, to make the packaging expanded as as well as the CDs.
The colors of the CD faces are an extension of the tee-shirts Interzone printed for the band’s live shows. The Naked Raygun logo was printed on various colored shirts in various colors. It never ceased to amaze how the sales of color combinations could not be estimated. At some shows one combination would sell out and then at another it would sell only a few. Often the oddest combination of colors were the ones that sold well.
