    What was your first punk-ish show? Mine was Social Distortion in 1985. My curfew was 11, so I missed them(but still bought a shirt). I also drew the anarchy sign on the back of an army jacket though I didn’t even know what it meant. DOH!!
ARSENAL opened featuring Chris Dodge who would later form SPAZZ and of course Steve Caballero’s the FACTION 
Peace, MIKE PARK

    emmatavasci asked: Wait, are you implying in that last post that you guys still do mail order?!


    Answer:

    Always and forever!

    Once upon a time…. 
This is how people did mail order.  I kind of miss reading all the personal notes many included with their order.  :(

    Dear Friends, I along with some of my besties are going to Korea/Japan in a couple weeks as the BRUCE LEE BAND. The plane tix for the tour have exceeded my initial accounting numbers by a few thousand dollars. Instead of doing some terrible kickstarter to help offset these costs, I’m just gonna sell a limited edition shirt. No inflated price, just my normal price in the AMR store. If you can buy one and help out… GREAT!! If not, that’s totally okay. Basically I’m trying to find a non-cheesy and practical way of asking for your money. Hope I succeeded. Peace, MIKE PARKhttp://asianmanrecords.storenvy.com/collections/211186-t-shirts/products/1275411-bruce-lee-band-t-shirt

    WARM THOUGHTS is the continuation of Elliot Babin’s bedroom recording project, which he started in 2010 previously under the name Dad Punchers. His solo project has evolved in to a revolving cast of Babin and his friends playing loud, sweaty, and occasionally sad, rock and roll music. You might know him as the drummer of Touche Amore, but if you haven’t heard his solo work yet, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Fans of The Weakerthans, Joyce Manor, and The Beach Boys will love WARM THOUGHTS.

    We’re happy to be re-releasing his “Mar Vista” LP this fall with 3 previously unreleased tracks. You can hear one of them here: https://soundcloud.com/asianmanrecords/warm-thoughts-everything-should-grow

    Warm Thoughts is already working on new songs which we’ll also be releasing on a 7” in the hopefully not too distant future.

    Here’s the first asian man ad ever made. This was 100% cut and paste. No computer used. You can see liquid paper correcting some mistakes. And now 18 years later, I can still barely use a computer. Peace, MIKE PARK
