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 PARK http://asianmanrecords.storenvy.com/collections/211186-t-shirts/products/1275411-bruce-lee-band-t-shirt
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 email@example.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
Do you work at a record store? If you do, can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

While cleaning the chaos at asian man I found this old VHS tape that had some footage of the Bruce Lee Band in Korea around 2002. The backing band is MU330 + Steve Borth(ex rx bandit) on sax. And would also like to announce that I will be bringing the Bruce Lee Band back to Korea in late August with the following lineup: GERRY LUNDQUIST(MU330, SKANKIN’ PICKLE)-TROMBONE JEFF ROSENSTOCK(BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY)-KEYBOARD/SAXOPHONE JOHN DEDOMENICI(BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY)-BASS KEVIN HIGUCHI(THE CHINKEES)-DRUMS DAN POTTHAST(MU330)-GUITAR MIKE PARK-SAXOPHONE/VOCALS
Unfortunately our schedules aren’t allowing us to play any US shows, but hopefully this will kick start us to do more? Probably not, but you never know. Peace, Mike Park
