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 all is well in your neck of the woods. Letís get started on some fun fun news!!
I'm launching a new label later this year called FUN FUN RECORDS. Yes, itís a label specializing in music for kids and all things positive for their development into super duper great teens and then adulthood. Well, thatís the goal. :) This is who we have on board doing records this year:
GREG ATTONITO(from the bouncing souls) and SHANTI WINTERGATE
And tons more to come. We will be the punk rock haven for kids music. Again... I hope.
We are planning on some kind of short west coast tour of nursery schools and libraries sometime in late summer, early fall. We have a website at funfunrecords.com that has nothing more than our logo and weíve started a facebook page at facebook.com/funfunrecords and a twitter account at twitter.com/funfunrecords
Spread the word to your friends with families.
The Classics of Love ĖS/T album is officially out. Feedback has been great and I will be plain and honest and say this is one of my favorite records of all time. I certainly think this will go down as a classic punk record for years and years to come.
Hereís a favor to ask. If you can go to your local record store(if they still exist) and see if they have the record. If not, can you ask them to stock it? We are distributed by NO IDEA RECORDS. Or just email me and let me know the name of the store and I can pass that along to my friends at NO IDEA. It would be very much appreciated.
Lots of people are wondering when the joyce manor pre-orders start? It will be next week. Either Tuesday or Wednesday. Weíve got some amazing package deals lined up for you. And we are excited to share that info. with you. I will shoot out another newsletter the moment we get those up on the site, plus a shout on our social media circles.
The Wild will be heading into the studio this May to record their follow up to ďSET OURSELVES FREEĒ. They will be recording in ST. AUGUSTINE, FL at Tom Gabelís studio. Tom will also be producing this new record. Iím very excited and interested to hear the collaboration of these musicians. I expect nothing less than greatness.
Oh boy.. Thatís a lot to digest for now, so Iíll say bye and have a good day and smile big.
peace, mike park
