Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade.
Happy 2010. Hope you are wonderful... Let's get started...
You can now pre-order FIVE IRON FRENZY "The Rise and Fall of FIVE IRON FRENZY" double DVD. We will be shipping the double disc on March 2nd, two weeks before the store date. Vocalist Reese Roper is actually on a plane right now to Los Angeles to finish up the last of his interviews with former members of the band. Tonight, he will take a red eye to Washington DC and then a flight to Newark, NJ and then back home to DENVER where he'll finish editing. He's promised me JAN 31st he'll be finished and I can turn everything into the manufacturer the next day. Please Reese, no delays.
SMOKING POPES "It's Been A Long Day" pre-orders start today. We will offer a package deal that gives you the 12" vinyl, digipak CD, and a t-shirt for just $15. Yeah, I know we're very kind people. Most labels would charge $15 just for a shirt, so we're just amazing eh? But yeah, listening to these old songs on one disc is pretty wonderful. I've always been relegated to spinning the vinyl a few songs at a time, so it's great to have this collection. SMOKING POPES will be doing two record release shows in Chicago on FEB 19th and 20th. The 19th show is 21+, but the 20th show is all ages. The first 50 people through the door on FEB 20th receive the album for free.
Asian Man will be releasing the physical product for LAURA STEVENSON and THE CANS most recent album titled "A Record". We will be adding three new songs that have yet to be recorded, to make this an 11 song release. If you aren't familiar with Laura Stevenson and the Cans, then please do yourself a favor and go to myspace.com/laurastevenson and listen to this amazing band. They have put stuff out on Quote Unquote Records and have a few 7 inches out. They're from Brooklyn by the way. We'll be doing vinyl and CD. FUN FUN and a tentative April release date.
Well, that's it for now. Be well, smile big.
