Lots of updates!

I must apologize for the lack of updates here recently. With the birth of our first child, Bonnie’s recovery from the pregnancy and other issues in-between, I have been holding down the fort essentially alone and there is only so much I can accomplish in a day, so these posts had to go by the way side. But things are starting to look up, and once we can get Ilan’s  esophagus condition under control, we should be back to full power.

Anyways, I’ve been brewing up some ideas to get a little extra cash in as a coule canceled pre-orders, a hyper-active distributor that sent us more merch than we were ready to handle (and pay for) as well as all the missed work from the birth that has put our December well in the red. I was going to roll them out tonight, but I’m thinking of putting them together in a post-Christmas sale kind of thing. We’ll see in the next couple of days. 🙂

Anyways, here’s some new stock to the store that has gone up in the past couple weeks (though far from everything that has actually gone up):

New vinyl from Strange Famous, Bloodhound Gang & More!

New entries into the store today! We got a box from Strange Famous Records last week and we’ve finally got to putting its contents online. Run by one of our favorite artists of all-time, Sage Francis, you’ve got a wonderful selection of hip-hop right here for pretty damn good prices if I do say so myself. If you’ve never listened to Sage before, I recommend the Makeshift Patroit EP. The title track may be one of the greatest politicial songs of the 2000s that people just don’t talk about.

B. Dolan – Live Evel

Buck 65 – Situation (2xLP)

Prolyphic & Reanimator – Artist Goes Pop

Sage Francis – Makeshift Patriot (Clear Blue)

Sage Francis – Personal Journals (2xLP)

Next up we’ve got the preorders for the much promised Bloodhound Gang vinyl. These shipped earlier today Fedex, so hopefully by the weekend we will be knee deep in filth. I know this shit is sexist, stupid and offense to just about everyone but god damn, its so catchy and funny that I just don’t care. Bonnie isn’t a fan, but I’ve been into the BHG for a long time and the one time I saw them in concert was one of the craziest and coolest shows ever.

All of this vinyl is pretty much impossible to find and information on it on the ‘net is close to zero. I wouldn’t expect to see any of this pop up anywhere outside of the official BHG site, so I would not sleep on this – these will not last long.

Bloodhound Gang – Ballad Of Chasey Lain

Bloodhound Gang – Fire Water Burn

Bloodhound Gang – Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo

Bloodhound Gang – Hooray For Boobies (2xLP)

Bloodhound Gang – Mope

Bloodhound Gang – Screwing You On The Beach At Night

Bloodhound Gang – The Bad Touch 

Bloodhound Gang – Why’s Everybody Always Pickin’ On Me?


Preorders, restocks, new section!

Where to start, where to start? First off, we’ve got more and more preorders going up, some new records to the store, some restocks and a new section. New section is titled, ‘Coming Soon,’ which is where we’ll be sticking records we have heard or known are coming at some point, but that’s all we know. Just a little informational section, plus it’ll be a little less work for us in the long run.

Some exciting news to report though. First off, we paid for our next exclusive color last week or so and now we’re just waiting to announce it. Its going to be an awesome package for an awesome reissue. It will be a LP + 7″ set (it was never released as such so that is not going to be a useful clue) and our color is supposed to be clear. That’s all you get to know for now. 🙂 Second, we have nearly finalized our order from the Bloodhound Gang to carry most of the vinyl they have for sale at their online store. I love the BHG but tracking down their vinyl is far too hard. I hope to have preorders up sometime this week. Third, we are currently in the talks with Reel Big Fish to carry their “Monkeys” double LP picture disc that has only been available from their online store and on tour. These are pricey sets, but they come from France and there are currently no plans to make more. Hopefully that will pan out and we’ll be able to sell them for less than the $30 they are charging right now.
