New Sea of Shit EP in the distro

I got a few copies of the new 7" from Chicago's Sea of Shit in the distro. This record is fantastic, raging powerviolence that is not to be missed. Get one before they're gone.

Distro Update and Super Cheap Backstock

I just put the new 7" from Teenage Softies in the distro. This record is seriously phenomenal and I highly recommend it. I don't have a lot of copies, so get on it.

I also found a couple boxes that had some old releases in it. I have about 25 copies of the Loaded for Bear/Bizarre X split CD, which was previously OOP. These are on sale for a mere $2. I also found a box of old Die Slug Car Yep 7"s that have been sitting around for years. I was tasked with distributing these in high school and so I'm selling them for the price of paypal fees and shipping (a measly 10 cents). Add them to an order and scope it out.

Sloane Peterson LP will be here fairly soon and there will be even more deals on stuff then.

Sloane Peterson LP Impending

The test presses for the Sloane Peterson "Why Go Out?" LP have been approved. That means they should be out before the end of December. I'm going to have some deals going to coincide with its release, so keep checking back! This record is seriously great and I can't wait for it to be available.

New Online Store

I'm back for a few days from tour before I leave again for another two weeks. I updated the distro to reflect what has sold and am in the process of getting everything moved into the new online store. Finally, you can pick things up without dealing with emailing me or any of that nonsense. Check that out here:


In other news, the Sloane Peterson LP is in production and will hopefully be out before you know it. I'll be doing some mailorder deals with those once they arrive. In the meantime, check out the new online store and pick up some cheap stuff! Keep in mind that I'll be gone from October 9th to 26th, so any orders in that time period will take longer than normal, but will be shipped as soon as possible!

Sea of Shit EP and Tour

I just added the new Sea of Shit EP on tape to the distro. This is their songs that will be on their upcoming s/t 7", but on a limited tape version for their tour. Get it while you can, as it's one of the best powerviolence releases I've heard in some time.

In other news, as of 9/16 the distro will be on the road with me on Boilerman tour. If I get any mailorders, they will ship in the time I'm home between legs (10/3-10/8) and then be on the road again until the end of October. So come out to a show and pick up some records!

More news to come on the Sloane Peterson LP as it reveals itself.

High School!

Another new addition to the distro: the new tape by Columbus, Ohio's High School. It's entitled "Over It." Check out the distro for more information and to pick it up.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011


I've got a few new releases in the distro from overseas. A great 4-way split 7" between Rumspringer, Calvinball, Mayflower, and Dauntless Elite, as well as Unfun's fantastic full length on cassette. Get them from me to avoid shipping from the UK. For imports I tried to still keep them cheap. More distro updates on the way in the next few days!

Moving Right Along

The Dead North tapes have been making their way out to distros. You can currently pick them up from the band themselves, Lost Cat, Ghosts Like Me, Traffic Street, and Not Shy of the DIY (UK). I'm down to almost half, so pick one up!

New distro stuff is on the way, so keep an eye out for updates.

Dead North Tape is OUT!

At long last, the Dead North - Spot Remover EP cassettes are here and available for mass consumption. For a mere $5ppd, this glorious 3 song pop punk gem from Cincinnati can be yours to keep on pro-pressed cassette. There are only 100 of these and between the band and a preemptive trade, I'm already down to 70 copies.

To pick one up, just paypal $5 to or grab it along with something in the distro and save on shipping. Here's a picture of this beauty:

More label stuff hopefully on the horizon including more distro updates and a new release. Stay tuned.

Distro Update

I just added a bunch of new distro titles to the distro page. Lots of great new stuff and some restocks from bands like New Creases, Unfun, Rational Anthem, Dead Uncles, Daniel James Gang, and more. I also found a last copy of the excellent Right Turn Clyde - Sippin 7" and I put it up for cheap, as well as dropped a few other prices. Check it out!

In other news, the Dead North tape is at the plant right now and should be in my hands in the next two weeks or so and the band will have their copies shortly after. Those will be up for sale as soon as I can them, as well as wholesale and limited trades for distros.

Lastly, thanks to everyone who helped out with the Boilerman midwest jaunt this past weekend. It was a lot of fun.

Dead North Tape

So, I am putting out the new EP by Dead North. It's called Spot Remover. Dead North is great, super catchy pop punk from Cinncinati. Boilerman has played with them every time we've been in Cinci, and they've just proceeded to get better each time. They're going on tour soon, check out their dates and some songs and stuff at

That'll be out soon. Also, got some new stuff in the distro. Check it out!

Slow and Steady

Things have been moving very slowly here as of late. However, I've got some really great additions to the distro to be added in the next few days, and potentially some new releases coming soon. Hibernation, not death. Stay tuned.
