    Happy Independence Day Weekend!  Buy this and make the world a better place.   Here’s my sales pitch. 12 full length records(normal price $144), asian man exclusive tshirt(normal price $12), Asian Man Slip Mat exclusive to record club(normal price $8), Asian Man Pint glass exclusive to record club(normal price $10) That’s $174 worth of stuff for only $100. Plus we’ll be throwing in extra goodies like stickers and posters and extra records. To top it off, for anybody who orders this through the weekend, you can hand pick 5 records(no double lp’s) from our back catalog of your choice instead of the automatic 12 new releases. did that make sense? You’ll get 5 records of your choice and then the next 7 future full lengths(or 7” equals half a full length).Questions? email me at mikeparkmusic@gmail.com Seriously, this is the best thing you can do for yourself.  Order here: http://asianmanrecords.storenvy.com/collections/234988-new-releases/products/1722548-amr-record-club

    Flash back to London, England May 2009. Jesse Michaels, lead singer of OPERATION IVY, CLASSICS OF LOVE, illustrator/painter, author, and genius. A man so influential to thousands of people for his lyrics, his vocal style, his iconic drawings. A man who sold over a million records. I took this photo as I reflected on my own life and realized if this guy who sold over a million records can still sleep on floors of strangers homes and slum it like he was 18 yrs old then I can do it too. Much respect to all the diy bands that tour because they love music.Peace, MIKE PARK

    Do you work at a record store?  If you do, can you email me at mikeparkmusic@gmail.com  I’m just trying to build a database of DIY stores that carry punk that I could add to our mailing list and send you downloads of new releases and just see if there’s anything we can do to get our records more visibility in stores. Hope that read well? doh.

    Last week, I was hanging out with a couple of friends and I mentioned an electronic music artist that I had heard about in the context of “shows I would actually go to.” I don’t like shows any more (not a position- just can’t help it…social anxiety / burnt on rock clubs, etc.) but I saw this…
