Tonight and tomorrow...

War Hero's last shows ever (Vancouver tonight, Squamish tomorrow). I'll be at the show tonight at the Chateau Noir with Osk, Six Brew Bantha, Young Oppression and Ahna. This lineup is so good I expect a parade. I'll have the 7" distro and if you want a 12" or CD drop me a line and I can bring it down.
Speaking of the Bantha, this rad Italian blog did a lengthy review of the 7", check it here

SCOUT- 'Tomato'
BADGER- 'Unhappy Life'
EMILY- 'Tinkertoy'
HALF EMPTY- 'Welcome Home'
SKIMMER- 'All I Know is Wrong'
SLEEPASAURUS- 'Master of Muppets'
THE WORM- 'Overflow'
SHOEGAZER- 'Dig a Hole/ Picture Perfect'

Vancouver thrashers...

Audiopile, Red Cat, Neptoon, Scratch, and Zulu Records are now carrying select Banana jams. Go buy them so I can earn my paltry commision and can upgrade to a higher quality brand of ramen. Also, I'll be at Gord's 30th birthday show tomorrow night with Haggatha/ Shearing Pinx/ Obacha/ SFB/ Heavy Chains, if you want anything from the distro drop me a line and I'll bring it down.

Banana 2.0

Well, where the hell do I start? Since MySpace has gone completely out of their way to alienate the people that use them, this blog site became a necessity. I haven't been particularly active for the last few months for a few reasons you'd be happier not reading about, but I'm now settled in Vancouver and I'm trying to get the label and distro back on track. No releases coming up in the immediate, though there's some ideas being kicked around. More on those if and when they get past the drunken bullshitting stage. In the meantime here's some shit you should know about your Bananafam...

-SIX BREW BANTHA 7" is sold out, from me at least. I know a couple distros still have it. In Vancouver you can try Audiopile, Neptoon and Red Cat. They're touring the west coast in March, scope their page for the deets.
-WAR HERO are trying to piss us all off by breaking up. Last two shows in Vancouver and Squamish on January 28th and 29th, respectively. I'll most likely have the distro at the Vancouver show. Their split with OSK is still available, grab it if you haven't already. I also found a couple copies of the UMMM split, once they're gone, they're gone. Three quarters of the band can now be seen in the equally awesome OBACHA.
-CIRCLE THE WAGONS back after 4 and a half years? Question marks denote rhetoric and therefore I can't be held accountable.

Anyhow sorry for the months of absence, I really should have called to check up on you guys. Here's to a thrashing 2011, Year of the 'Nana.
