Sometime this fall/winter, I will be releasing the vinyl debut for a new band from Montreal, Quebec called POWERNAP. Features Hugo Mudie from The Sainte Catherines. I’ve been a big fan of the Sainte Catherines for many years. This new band lies in a similar style. Influenced by bands like Lawrence Arms, Leatherface, Jawbreaker. Here’s a little teaser of what’s in store. Hope you enjoy it.
So far, we have raised $6,250 through our JAPAN RELIEF packages! Mike has been working with YOKO UTSUMI to figure out where to send the money. A check should be sent out by next week!
DAN ANDRIANO IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM (Dan Andriano of ALKALINE TRIO)’s “Hurricane Season” CD/LP due August 9th!!! Follow Dan on Facebook and Twitter.
DAN POTTHAST of MU330 and members of SLOW GHERKIN have formed a new ska band called DAN P AND THE BRICKS! The band just wrapped up a recording session produced by CHRIS MURRAY. No ska punk. Just ska! Release date TBA.
THE SAINTE CATHERINES “Dead Dogs” 7” has been delivered! It is a total pressing of 400 records, 200 on clear gold, 200 on black. This is a one time only pressing, so don’t miss out! Special deal TBA.
SPRAYNARD needs your help on tour! If you can help them find shows in Memphis, TN, Louisville, KY, Sacramento, CA and somewhere else in California, please get in touch with the band here: firstname.lastname@example.org. View the full list of tour dates HERE.
