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

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!!

Had a chance to listen to the new Kepi Ghoulie album and the new RIPTIDES album
over the weekend. Both great pop punk records. Kepi has such a unique style
all to his own and the new record continues to bring his fresh sound with a bit
more keyboard/synthesizer than his previous efforts. Currently Kepi is in
Europe as he will be gearing up for a long tour next month, but for now he is
currently doing solo shows and gallery showings for his paintings. Good luck
over there Kepi. Be safe my friend.
The Riptides new record is so bubblegum poppy. It reminds me of kids in leather
jackets listening to the Ramones. Produced by Mass Giorgini, the master of the
pop punk recordings.
And again, the never ending onslaught of releases comes forth. I often wonder
if it's too much stuff? I hope not. Hopefully you trust my taste and will
embrace each new release for it's own unique self.
Be well friends.
peace, mike park
