The Muffs "Really Really Happy"
"Really Really Happy is the album that kicks off the second phase of The Muffs' career." So begins Roy McDonald's liner notes for the expanded reissue of the band's fifth album. After eight years and four albums, The Muffs had written, recorded, and toured non-stop. After a break, the group was ready to do it all again, and was approached by friends (and sisters in law) Charlotte Caffey (Go•Go's) and Anna Waronker (that dog), who had just started their own label - Five Foot Two Records. McDonald, bassist Ronnie Barnett, and singer/guitarist/songwriter Kim Shattuck had a new home, and were ready to do it all again. Really Really Happy arrived in 2004 to rave reviews. Now, nearly two decades later, it returns as a standard black LP and an expanded double-CD release with 22 bonus tracks, including 16 of Kim Shattuck's original demos for the album. There will also be a very limited edition of the LP available only at indie retail on colored vinyl with a 7" EP containing 6 bonus tracks, with a sleeve hand-stamped by Ronnie.
