Coffee and punk – the perfect combination? Green Day’s Oakland Coffee Works’ recently announced the release of a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl with two tracks from Green Day’s 1994 BBC Radio 1 ‘Evening Session’

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s ‘Oakland Coffee Works’ recently announced the release of a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl pressing with two tracks from Green Day’s 1994 BBC Radio 1 ‘Evening Session’ performance.

For US$19.99, the never-before-released vinyl gives recordings of ‘Basket Case’ and ‘When I Come Around’ on a unique purple vinyl chosen by Green Day drummer Tre Cool. The custom jacket artwork was created especially for this limited release by artist Brian Viveros.

“Often, I think the BBC session recordings are better than the originals,” said Armstrong in a press statement.

The release is a companion record to Oakland Coffee’s Green Day BBC sessions Part One 7-inch, released earlier this summer. The record features recordings of ‘She’ and ‘2000 Light Years Away’.

The special edition 1994 BBC Sessions Part Two release is the third exclusive vinyl production by The Oakland Coffee House, following Billie Joe Armstrong’s No Fun Mondays 7-inch record in late 2020. The Oakland Coffee House is a virtual community venue featuring content curated by Green Day and Oakland Coffee. The platform highlights artist performances, Green Day from-the-vault videos, and a myriad of content celebrating music, art, and community. The Oakland Coffee House has also been the host of exclusive content in tandem with Green Day’s Hella Mega tour.

The band founded Oakland Coffee — Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt — in 2015, after a decade of searching for their favourite coffee beans and experimenting with roasting. The coffee is described as super smooth but not bitter or acidic. The trio prides itself on setting a standard for compostability in coffee packaging. Oakland Coffee is the first coffee company to exclusively use fully certified compostable bags and pods that are made from plant-based materials, allowing it to be composted in an industrial composting facility, where available.
