Second Childhood/Boat Records

Postby shaneface » Sat Jun 19, 2010 1:24 pm

Found a pretty enjoyable record at Mad City called "Figure Skating" by a band called Second Childhood. Couldn't find any internet info on them, but the record company is called "Boat" and has a Madison PO box. Anyone got any hotttt leadzzzz on this record?

I did some searching and found out that Spooner recorded an album with Boat Records in 1986. Ask Butch Vig about them.

the Reptile Palace Orchestra's first release "Early Reptile" was a Boat record. Dave Benton was the man behind that Madison label; you can catch him at Madcity Music Exchange (or did Dave Zero buy that from him? ) Rockin' John may also be of help. Anyway, a couple clues. Happy hunting!

I believe some/all of the recordings from The And were also Boat Records deals.

Boat was awesome and was largely Dave Benton's baby. A lot of local, semi-local and other releases came out on Boat. There used to be a page for Boat on Spooner's site. I have a lot of respect for Dave for what he did with Boat, which was largely to help promote other Madison-based artists.

If it's the record I'm thinking of it was a band out of Oshkosh led by a great songwriter/singer/guitar player named James Reickenberger (not sure about the spelling). I think that had Andy Cox on drums who also played with the Twistin' Egyptians and one of Wisconsin's first new wave bands "The Felons". Also out of Oshkosh. I think Dede Bangs might have done the photography on Figure Skating.

If I'm wrong about this, I blame the chemistry going around the Fox Valley at the time these bands were around.
