    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

    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

    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

    For the very first time, MU330 “ULTRA PANIC” is out on vinyl. 500 on clear blue. I hope to re-issue the back catalog, but let’s see how this one does first. It’s one of my favorites and I’m just happy that it got to see the vinyl treatment. Please share with like minded friends. Peace, MIKE PARK

My darling is an awesome singer. He makes songs about places he performs. Why don’t you start writing about songs about places where we will go for our date? Then, I will write  stories about our romantic activities there. We can do out future romance dating dairy collaboration. Aw. I’ll add some sexiness to it too;)

Dan P finally gets featured on this awesome blog! Go through the old posts and you’ll see tons of the AMR family represented…

    ASIAN MAN RECORDS 15TH ANNIVERSARY!!!

    So the word has gotten around in the past few days, but here is our own announcement on the Asian Man tumblr!

    From Mike’s last newsletter:

    Ok….. SO….. ASIAN MAN turns 15 next year. Shoooootzzzz.. . that’s a long time I’ve been doing this. Even though it feels like I just started this recently. Anyways, I guess that’s a good thing that it still feels fresh.

    So what does this mean? Well, here’s what I have planned.
    On June 16th, 17th, and 18th we’ll take over two clubs in San Francisco, California. THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL and THE PARKSIDE. Both clubs are located on 17th street and only a 5 minute walk apart.

    We will have shows going simultaneously at both venues on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We’ll do the wristband option for the whole weekend so you can bounce back and forth to both clubs and we’ll also sell individual tickets to each show.

    I am trying to get every single band that ever put a release out on asian man to participate. And yes, I realize that will be impossible, but I’m going try and pull some miracles. Wish me luck. I’m excited to say so far I’ve gotten MU330 to commit to doing this and also the almighty SLOW GHERKIN. But yeah, I’m seriously going after some bands that you will freak out if they commit.

    These are small clubs too. Both are only around 350 capacity spaces, so we’ll have a great atmosphere for every show. And it will be in the best city in the whole wide world. SAN FRANCISCO!!! YAY!!!

    Basically, I’ve just started contacting bands, but I expect at least 50 bands. Each week I’ll update the bands confirmed to play, but yeah.. just wanted to get the word out there and I’ll keep you posted on all the goodness to come.
    Be well.
    Peace, mike park

    There you go. Mark your calendars. We’ll work hard to make this special for you guys. Keep your fingers crossed for lots of big reunions, not to mention all of the incredible acts that are still active and touring. In the mean time, what current bands or reunions would you love to see?
