DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS?-All of you who book shows across the United States or actually anywhere in the world, get in touch. Trying to build a good network of DIY venues/promoters for Asian Man Records bands. So get in touch if you can help with booking. firstname.lastname@example.org
TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man cds, shirts, etc. What free stuff you ask?? Basically anything...if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah....anything. Let's trade!! Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade. Actually, even if you live in a different state/country get in touch as I tour often and perhaps will end up through your town. BOOYAH!!
Ok, we’ve got an exact date that BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY “SCRAMBLES” will arrive at asian man. And that day is MARCH 11th. They are on a truck at this very moment coming from FLORIDA and we will have all orders out the door by MARCH 12th. Sorry for the delay, but it was truly beyond our control.. We had submitted the job over 6 weeks ago, but the packaging for this was all specialized, so yup.. I’m babbling, but it is coming. Hooray..!!
The Riptides just sent us an update for the recording of their new record. It will be recorded in May at Sonic Iguana with Mass Giorgini (Screeching Weasel) producing & Philip Hill (Teen idols) engineering. Drum duties will be handled by Dan Lumley (Riverdales, Squirtgun). Watch for a September release on vinyl and cd. In the meantime, their split with the Queers will keep the fans happy until the full length is done.
The Riverdales have completed recording INVASION USA. You can read ben blog about it here at myspace.com/benweasel27
They still need to mix, but all the hard work is done. The LP/CD will be released on JULY 14th.
Sean from ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD just called me and said “We’re ready to record a new record!!” WOW!! So quickly. Damn, those guys are prolific. And we will also be releasing a Andrew Jackson compilation of all their old releases that are now out of print.
Queers on tour next week, Lawrence Arms Guided Tour coming on vinyl soon, queers/atom age split 7" coming in this month, monkey record release shows coming up, for the win on tour next month, and look for a bunch of new buttons coming in very soon.. Whhhhheeeeew..
And finally... there will be a RIVERDALES-PHASE 3 12" exclusive through INTERPUNK. 300 pressed on baby blue vinyl. You can go to this link to pre-order: http://interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=165072&
