So my copies of the Unwelcome Guest – Painter 7″ came and went before I even had time to post on this thing. I’m getting 20 more copies soon, but don’t expect those to last long either. You can still pick up a copy from No Idea, Art of the Undergound, Feral Kid, or the band. Or you can just wait until I have some more and hope to snag one.
I’m sending the Get Bent – Demo 7″ to press today and I’m stoked! I found out about this band a little less than a year ago when my friend Mike sent me an e-mail about his new band. I listened to the one song they had posted on their MySpace page and e-mailed him before the song was even over about the possibility of doing a record for them. Get Bent play melodic and emotive punk rock that gets compared to bands like Latterman and Samiam, but I’m gonna go out of a limb and say it’s better. If you wanna play the ex-members game, the people in this band have or are in Potboiler, Down in the Dumps, Red & Blue, and Jonesin. Here’s to hoping that this will be out by Get Bent’s winter tour which comes nowhere near New Mexico.
I’m still slowly…very slowly…getting the Dirt Cult Mix Tape Vol II together. Compilations take a lot of work, but I think tape compilations take more. I’m thinking this might be the last installment to tell you the truth. But this WILL happen, and I hope it will happen soon.
Thanks for reading!
