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
Wait, are you implying in that last post that you guys still do mail order?!
Always and forever!
"Dad Punchers" is now called "Warm Thoughts" same band different name.
ASIAN MAN RECORDS is Re-Releasing the out of print LP with 3 NEWLY RECORDED UNRELEASED stripped down versions of songs. You can hear “Everything Should Grow” over at the Asian Man Records Soundcloud:
Warm Thoughts - Everything Should Grow
A new 7” and lots of shows coming at the end of 2014.
Thanks for all your support.
Welcome to the family!
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.

Spraynard announced their reunion this past spring, pleasantly surprising their entire fan base. When they mysteriously broke up a few years ago, fans were saddened and shocked. They were on track to become a very popular band. Their releases Funtitled and Exton Square were gaining momen.
Here’s a great in-depth interview with Spraynard about their break up and why they’re back together.
