Happy Wednesday!
Let’s do this!!

HARD GIRLS
Have you heard this band before? For years I’ve been in love with their music.
They’re not only a great band, but great friends. But I wanted them to work hard
and not just rely on me and my good looks to put out their music. So after a few
years of making them sweat, I’m here to announce that the new Hard Girls album
“A Thousand Surfaces” will be coming out June 24th via Asian Man Records. If
you’re not familiar, please get familiar. Think of a mix between the
Weakerthans, Guided By Voices, Superchunk, Wire ,and Jawbreaker. That’s a good
start. Check out a new track from the forthcoming album and PLEASE Please do me
a favor and share with friends. http://youtu.be/dv9mrbJS9zw

DAN POTTHAST
Super friend Dan P will be doing a solo tour around the U.S. and Canada this
summer(JUNE/JULY/AUGUST). No bars, no clubs, ALL LIVING ROOMS! He’s especially
excited to play small and obscure out of the way towns. If this sounds like
something that you’d be interested in hosting, please Email danpotthastmusic@gmail.com
and he will hash out the details.

KOO KOO KANGA ROO
We’re doing a split release with my family friendly label FUN FUN RECORDS to
release the new Koo Koo Kanga Roo album. Not familiar? This duo is unlike any
band I’ve released before. One night you can see them performing with Yo Gabba
Gabba and then the next night you’ll see them with Dillinger Four. You might
have seen them on tour with Frank Turner and The Smith Street Band or your kids
might have told you about this crazy band that played their school assembly. I
call this music FUNCORE. Check out a video for their hit single that’s sweeping
the nation called fanny pack. http://youtu.be/PFR_U42pOFA

SKA REGGAE ROCKSTEADY SOUL STORE
I started up a SKA store to sell a lot of my vinyl. I want to keep this mostly
a vinyl distro for SKA, so if you’re in a band and you want to consign your
records, just get in touch. The store is here: http://srsr.storenvy.com/

And that’s it for now. Hope all is well. If you have a question, just shoot me
an email at mikeparkmusic@gmail.com
Be well.
Peace, mike park

Happy day before Valentines!
The dumbest holiday around cause shouldn’t everyday be Valentines day when you’re in love?
Anyways, my wife and I will celebrate by going to Costco and eating free samples.. Maybe we’ll splurge and get a slice of Pizza for $1.50? Who knows? It’s Valentines Day after all, so anything is possible.

Ok..here we go!
The big news is that SPRAYNARD are reuniting on May 24th in Philadelphia, Pa at the First Unitarian Church. This will coincide with a new release that consists of out of print singles and also a new recording they did last week. Most importantly friendships have been mended and even the slight possibility of them doing more stuff is just super exciting. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon EST. http://www.r5productions.com/event/496171-spraynard-philadelphia/

More SPRAYNARD. “Funtitled” has been out of print for nearly a year now, but the third pressing just arrived. This time it’s 500 on Clear BLUE vinyl.
You can order it here: http://asianmanrecords.storenvy.com/collections/197073-12-inch-vinyl/products/3352959-spraynard-funtitled-lp

2nd pressing of Wild Moth “Over, Again” has arrived. This pressing consists of 300 on opaque white vinyl. You can order here:

And finally those living in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’ll be at thee Parkside this Saturday from noon-5 ish for the first BAY AREA RECORD FAIR. It’s a free event and DOG PARTY will be playing along with other great bands and tons of labels including FAT, ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES, 1234 GO, and so many more. Lots of vinyl will be available for great prices.
hope to see some friendly faces. Be well.
Peace, mike park

TYPHOON HAIYAN FUND RAISER!!
Help us raise money for our brothers and sisters in the Philippines who have been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. A $20 donation will net you an Asian Man Records full color T-Shirt and will include 2 random CD’s.

At times like this I wish I had the popularity of a Kanye West so I could do more. But even though we’re a small community, the Asian Man family has always been quick to help support others when they are in need. Please share and be well(All money will go to charity. We also need suggestions of a good place or places to send money to).
Peace, mike park
