LINER NOTES


On February 23rd, 1985 TeenBeat Records, a small cassette label, began in the classrooms of Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. As of March 2002, TeenBeat's discography has grown to include over 300 items, including 7" records, CDs, posters, t-shirts and unavailable items and events as diverse and absurd as bricks, houses, injuries, and a Zenith Solid State Stereo. It has been the home of many artists, most notable for releases by Unrest, Versus and Tuscadero among others.

On June 9th 1998, a TeenBeat Mailing List was started and grew to it's modest, but faithful, membership fluctuating between 150-200 members. It was formed to serve as a place of discussion for fans of the TeenBeat label and it's artists.

In the fall of 2000, the idea was brought up about creating a tribute to the label we all adored, and "The Tribute" came into being. Among the artists list members could have choosen were Aden, Air Miami, Barbara Manning, Andrew Beaujon, Bells Of, Blast Off Country Style, Cath Carroll, Clarence, Jonny Cohen's Love Machine, Dustdevils, Eggs, Feminine Complex, Flin Flon, Flowers of Discipline, Flying Saucer, Gamma Rays, Gastr Del Sol, Gollipops, Grenadine, Hot Pursuit, In Camera, Jungle George and The Plague, Phil Krauth, Krokodiloes, Los Marauders, Luna, No Trend, Olympic Death Squad, Panax, The Project, Mark Robinson, Romania, The Ropers, Scaley Andrew, Robert Schipul, Sexual Milkshake, Stereolab, Synthetic Socks, Teenage Gang Debs, Tel Aviv, Thirsty Boys, Tracy Shedd, True Love Always, The Tube Bar , Tuscadero, Uncle Wiggly, Unrest, Versus, Viva Satellite, Vomit Launch, William and Vivian, Butch Willis and many others. Amateurs On Plastic pays tribute to only a few.

By April of 2001 the last track arrived from none other than TeenBeat's head honcho himself, Mark Robinson who contributed a guitar and vocal version of Phil Krauth's "Cape May," that is throwback to their days spent together in Unrest.

Taking the title from a Butch Willis song (found on Butch's latest album, Superstitious Mummys), Amateurs on Plastic: a Tribute to Teenbeat Records, the compilation had found its name.

Accompanying the CD is a twenty page booklet of notes, facts and references, including liner notes written by Factory Records specialist Frank Brinkhuis (Frank's "four-and-a-half-closed-typed-pages" of Factory Records discography corrections were once made available to NME readers in regards to FAC227, NME's printed discography list). With a nod to Smithsonian Folkways Anthology of American Folk, the booklet is excessive in it's descriptions and unlike many tribute albums fills in the details the casual listener would never know.
