Happy Wednesday. We hope to do lots of fun stuff this summer including a generator show in the parking lot of the Oakland Aís stadium. We havenít done one in a couple years now, so weíre due. And thinking back to the old days, we used have so many events. Like Asian Man day at the amusement park and Asian Man day at the beach. Iím gonna try and do more stuff like that, so just stay tuned for more info.. Ok, letís get started.
In honor of the SMOKING POPES tour with MATT SKIBA AND THE SEKRETS(which starts tomorrow), we are going to do a super sale for the first 50 people. You will get a copy of ITíS BEEN A LONG DAY on 12Ē vinyl and a copy of GET FIRED on 12Ē vinyl for only $10.99. Yes!! You heard correctly. Again, only for the first 50 people, so look for this to be gone in a matter of minutes. Just look at the front page at asianmanrecords.com and scroll down to the bottom under deals.
HUGO MUDIE AND FRED JACQUES-
HUGO and Fred are from MONTREAL, QC and are best known for their band the SAINTE CATHERINES. Unfortunately the SAINTE CATHERINES broke up earlier this year. But HUGO and FRED are forging ahead with new music. The music is less aggressive and more centered around singer/songwriter styled in the setting of a CHUCK RAGAN and the REVIVAL TOUR sound. Hear a live track here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=RcKZY5OagVQ
And look for a vinyl and cd release in October of this year.
THE TAXPAYERS "GOD, FORGIVE THESE BASTARDS" SONGS FROM THE FORGOTTEN LIFE OF HENRY TURNER will be shipping earlier than expected. The songs paint a vivid picture of the man himself, in the Taxpayers' uniquely punk meets gumshoe bard aesthetic. Package deals now available with the LP and accompanying book (from Cantankerous Titles). Or you can just get the vinyl. Either way, this release rules and the story of Henry Turner is quite amazing. Check out a track here:

I am selling my entire toy collection slowly but surely. I have boxes and boxes of toys that I havenít looked at in over 10 years, so hopefully I can recoup some of the ridiculous amounts of money I spent on toys over the past 20 years or so. You can check out what I have here:
darn, thatís a long URL. Cut and paste and see all the junk I bought.
