"I'm not close minded about shitty bands like Anthrax."

I'll have the distro at the pre- and post- Fastcore Fest shows tonight and Sunday in Vancouver. Tonight's OSK, OBACHA, BRIDGEBURNER, SKUFF and WAUZTED @ the Alf House. It will frackin' kill. Sunday's RAPE REVENGE, ORDSTRO, NEGATIVE STANDARDS, STARES, UNLEARN and AHNA @ the Chateau. I'll also be at Fastcore Fest in Squamish on Saturday if you can't make it to either of those shows but want me to bring you some vinyl goodies. Mailorder back up n running since the Harper majority thwarted any bargaining power Canada Post may have had by legislating them back to work so they can continue to be miserable delivering you shitty grind records from my stupid distro. Speaking of shitty music and my stupid distro, added some items from HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH, KALI, ULTIMATE BLOWUP, QUATTRO STAGIONI, TRIAC, DEFEATIST, ASRA, and LOW THREAT PROFILE. Dropped the price of CDs to $5 cause let' face it, when was the last time you bought a fucking CD? Snap that shit up and sell it to cheap Charlie for all I care.

In other news, the AHNA LP repress should be out right quick. Perfect music for when you're reflecting on just how many poor choices led you to this exact moment in your life. CIRCLE THE WAGONS has studio time booked early September, size undetermined but it will be vinyl. If anyone wants to help out with its release, holla.

SIX BREW BANTHA are touring western Canada this summer with fellow Victoria bands ISKRA and NO EULOGY. Check deez dates and help fill any days off if you promote shows and are swell. Trying to get the SBB 7" repressed in time for the tour, pending the plant actually getting back to me.
