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.

The Future!

One Reason / Defiance, Ohio Test Pressings Okayed, Release Coming Soon!

Earlier this week, we here at Anti-Creative Records as well as One Reason and Defiance, Ohio okayed the test press of their upcoming split 7″ record. This means sometime late next week (hopefully), my warehouse (ahem, closet) will be filled with vinyl. If all goes well, the album artwork will be completed by that time as well. It shouldn’t take long for the printers to pump out the finished product once they recieve the artwork.

This means we are oh-so-very-close to Anti-Creative‘s very first release. I’m optimistically guessing two weeks.

For those of you who are unaware, this 7″ will be pressed on “Coke-bottle” green, transparent vinyl (very, very hot) at 33RPM. Awesome? Holy shit, you bet.

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.

[ 05.06.2004 ]

We made a few changes to the website (slightly different design, all links now working).

We’re still talking to Ghost Mice and Defiance, Ohio about a split on Anti-Creative. Here’s what we know so far…

If D,OH agree to do it, it will be a split 7″ colored vinyl (sexy!). We’re trying to convince each band to cover at least one of the other band’s songs as part of the release. We don’t know how many songs will be on the record (Ghost Mice say they’ll do 4-5 songs, but don’t ask me how they plan on fitting that on one side of a 7″). Ghost Mice have agreed 100% to releasing with us. If D,OH decides not to, expect a split with Ghost Mice and someone else (Chris from Ghost Mice suggests possibly Japanther)!

The Future!

[ 04.10.2004 ]

HOLY SHIT! Jer is currently discussing plans with (one of his all-time favorite bands) Ghost Mice from Indiana about possibly releasing a split with Defiance, Ohio (who is Jer’s current favorite band – this is his dream come true)! Ghost Mice is all up for it, and we’re awaiting further corespondence from D,OH. Keep on the look out, as this will be a hot release if we pull it off!
