No Problem "Paranoid Times" limited repress

In 2011 I assisted my friend Handsome Dan in releasing the 2nd No Problem record, the "Paranoid Times" EP. It went quickly out of print and has been unavailable for awhile. With the band going on a month-long American tour this month (I'd love to give you a full list of dates but those dudes are as flakey as me when it comes to putting info up online), we decided to do a limited repress on Debt Offensive.

There are 250 pressed, 100 on white vinyl, 150 on black. It has a slightly different mastering and center labels than the first press, for those asking. 

Order this fucker now over at the webstore! While you're there you may want to pick up one of the last 15 copies of the "Living in the Void" 7" left. I still have a few on red vinyl too.

Kent State "The Wrong Side of History" LP :: Available Now!

The Kent State LPs arrived this week and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Absolutely love the artwork that Emma Maatman (who also played on this LP) did for the record too, it really brings the whole thing together perfectly.

Kent State was introduced to me some time ago as one of the dude's from Deep Sleep (one of my fave current punk/hardcore bands) new project that sounds like Guided by Voices, Swervedriver and Mega City Four. Any band compared to Swervedriver, let alone MC4, I will always check out. Always. Anyway I was blown away by the demo (the Spahn Ranch EP, which appears on this record) and when I started the label I always had it in the back of my head that I would love to do a Kent State record of some kind. I'm very appreciative of the fact that Nick (aka Kent State mastermind) was into this idea of a singles collection and hope this is just the first of many volumes.

Scum stats on this sucker: 500 pressed in total, 400 on black and 100 on blue vinyl. Down to about 35 copies of the blue version left which are only available through me (the band sold their's out instantly) so grab one from the store quickly if you want one! Comes with download code. Co-release with Paranoid Futures.

Copies will be or currently are available at Ebullition, Grave Mistake, Sorry State, Dead Beat and others in the next week or so. For wholesale please shoot me an email or contact Ebullition.

Entering the blogosphere

So yeah, I copped out and rather than get an actual site, which apparently takes up more time and effort than I am afforded right now, I have decided to go the blogspot route. It felt like something needed to be done at any rate, especially after a conversation with Steve from No Problem where his quote in relation to my "online presence" was along the lines of "Dude, come on. Get with it."

Got some new records coming out this month, right away in fact, so I'll be posting about those soon. Thanks for looking.
