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. email@example.com
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. BOOYAH!!
Hope your week is going wonderfully thus far. I have had a sore neck and back for the last 4 weeks. Anybody out there a massage therapist that would be down to trade massage for asian man swag? Anyways, let's get started..
JOYCE MANOR. Have you heard of them? Hailing from Torrance, CA., I am pretty excited to announce that we will be putting out the bands next full length sometime in early 2012. The band is heading up to San Francisco to record a bunch of new songs in November at the ATOMIC GARDEN with producer Jack Shirley. I actually met the singer about 6 years ago. I played a generator show in San Pedro at the sunken city off the cliffs(did that make any sense?) and there I asked if anybody could drive me to the airport and young Barry Johnson would volunteer. How nice of him. So yeah, we are basically best friends because of that. In actuality, I would never have known this to be fact if he didn't remind me that it was indeed him that drove me. So yes.. Spread the goodness that is JOYCE MANOR. you can hear some music here at http://joycemanor.bandcamp.com/
Let me know what you think? Pretty good eh?
KEPI KEPI KEPI
My thoughts on KEPI are this......
THE GREATEST PERSON IN ROCK AND ROLL. Seriously, I feel so lucky to know KEPI and to be graced by his amazing energy and love for music. He's the only person I know that could easily be on tour year round rather than stay at home. And just this week KEPI told me "OH by the way Mike I'm done with my new album. Can we release it in October? ". UGGGHHH!!!!! Well...... my dearest KEPI, October seems like a long long shot, but I am going to try my hardest to get this out by the end of the year. The new record is called "I BLEED ROCK AND ROLL". I couldn't think of a more suitable title. KEPI is also recording a follow up in NYC right now with VIC RUGGIERIO(the SLACKERS) for a second split release sometime in 2012. And finally KEPI has a brand new website at KEPILAND.COM It's still a work in progress, but KEPI promises much fun there very soon, so SPREAD THE WORD!! It's very much appreciated. And I will keep you updated on an exact release date for the new KEPI.
And finally, I put up the leftover shirts from the AM 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY in our store. You can just click store and head to shirts to see what we have left. Unfortunately it's mostly LARGE and XL, but if you're big like me then you are a winner. We still have posters from the anniversary, so might as well get those too. With a tube it's only $3 for both posters and shirts are only $10. YAY!! I love being a salesman.
And I'm kidding about that massage. email me
