Band News, Shit For Sale, Site Maintenance, The Future!

February 22, 2005

yes, i redesigned the site a little. but that’s not what yuo want to read about. what you want to read about is our record releases. So I’ll tell you…

Pretty Hot/Ghost Mice Split CD
the much anticipated, much delayed, split CD has been, well, delayed again. we should see this release some time in april. Ghost Mice recorded their songs already, including a cover of Fifteen‘s “Petroleum Distillation.” awesome? you bet. Pretty Hot will be working on their recording in March.

Operation: Cliff Clavin/The Max Levine Ensemble Split 7″
this record is actually a Plan-it-X. release, but a bunch of different people and labels contributed and made it a joint release. we helped out too, so we will have a few copies to sell on our end. this record will be out April 1st!

One Reason/Defiance, Ohio Split 7″
this record has been out for a few months now, and it’s just terrific. two new songs by each band on coke bottle green clear vinyl. this just might be the sexiest looking record in your collection. No Idea Records has picked up this record in their distro catalog, so if you don’t want to get them from me, get them from No Idea. a few copies of these were sent to different zines for review (slug and lettuce, punk planet, heartattack, razorcake, amp magazine, maximum rocknroll), so please do me a favor, and if you buy these zines please snip out the review if you come across it and mail it to me.

Band News, Shit For Sale


anti-creative records’s first release is out now! sorry it took so long. we had to battle divine intervention trying to stop this record from being released, but we finally did it. we won. it’s out.

folk-punk all stars Defiance, Ohio from Bloomington, IN team up with Cleveland, MS’s pop-punk heroes One Reason to form the one of the best splits you’ll ever hear! for those of you who are unaware, this 7″ was pressed on “Coke-bottle” green, transparent vinyl (very, very hot) at 33.3RPM. Awesome? Holy shit, you bet.

i picked up the final artwork today from the print shop (with slight errors, even after the printer messed up the first time, too), and we’ve been folding all day and getting everything ready to mail. if you’re amongst the lucky few who sent in a pre-order, you should be recieving your copies soon, as i have already mailed out your copy.

if you haven’t pre-ordered, now is the perfect time to get your copy! each vinyl is $4ppd (but if you can, a little help with shipping would be awesome – perhaps an extra few cents or a buck or some stamps?)

for more information on ordering (such as where to send your money, who to make it out to, or how to pay through PayPal – which we don’t recommend, as you’ll have to pay more), please be sure to check out our order page (click here)

Updates Regarding the One Reason / D, Oh Split!

We’ve sent off the masters for both sides of the upcoming 7″ split (with Defiance, Ohio and One Reason ) to be plated and pressed. This means we’re only a few short weeks away from our first release! I’ve been listening to the songs that will be on this release almost non-stop ever since I’ve recieved them, and they’re simply incredible. I’m insanely impressed! I think you will be, too. We’ll keep you posted.

Also, we added links to Pretty Hot’s website and their MP3’s! Check the MP3’s section and links section.

One Reason/Defiance, Ohio Split 7″ (and all new website design!)

Defiance, Ohio finished recording seven songs quite a while ago, two of them for a split with One Reason coming out on anti-creative records (the other five for a split on Plan-it-X Records) . The two songs are a new version of “A Song About Promises” from their demo, this time sung by BZ , and one completely new song! They recorded in Bloomington, IN with their friend Greg .

One Reason will be recording their half of the split August 6th and 7th at The Living Room Studio with Chris George . This is the same place their previous CD was recorded at ( All Rivers Run South, All Roads Lead Home , Plan-it-X Records), and it will sound really good.

Also, we have re-designed the entire site. Hopefully it’s more appealing now.
