I have a serious compulsive record-buying problem. It's been diagnosed by other nerds and it's scary. Anyone that's ever been to my house will know that I have too much shit around. Cool thing though, it all deals with the same thing, METAL!

So, from time to time I like to post weird shit concerning my latest, and most coveted piece of wax (vinyl, dude.). Here's the most recent....

G.A.T.E.S is an incredible band from Japan. These are guys from Church of Misery, another fantastic band. Both forging the styles of doom, metal, stoner rock, and other quirky terms that describe the weediest of metals.

Anyways. GATES is doing the same thing that all bands draining my bank account are doing. They release super small pressings (usually 100) of random EPs and splits on a 7" format. Oh, and they can't just put out one version. There's an American, European, and Japan pressing with everything.

As you can see here....


....and all going for over $50 each on Ebay. No distros is America are getting copies of this, as far as I know. And all of the Japanese distros websites' are in fucking Japanese! What is a girl to do!?
Help me help you. Get me these records and I'll send you something in return.

New Poster for the show we're playing with Bone Awl!

I just finished this design and I'm stoked. Should have it printed and up around Denver in a week or two. This summer I'll hopefully be doing a lot more.

Richard Serra. My Nigga.

I need to look like this when I'm making prints.

Check out this too.

Coolest Bar Ever.

Yup, I finally found it. Possibly the best bar in Colorado/the world. Thats right. I've discovered it. Wouldn't have been possibly without the help of Jake, Cris, and Jon (SPEEDWOLF members and affiliates). They grew up around the towns of Bailey, Sphinx Creek, and Pine, CO where this bar is. Last Saturday they decided to show me more of their home turf, and the coolest bar ever.

This is the road that leads up to the BUCKSNORT Saloon.

Awesome drive. This is the front of the bar.

...these are the walls that surround the valley that the bar is in.

The inside...

...and a cool view from the patio. It hangs over a river. Killer.

They brew their own beer called Antler Ale. The tap that serves this beer has a handle that's a real antler. The pitchers are huge, and it's constantly full of bikers. So I suggest if you want to feel like a miner, cowboy, or creepy hiking mountain drunk dude. Check it out!

Splattered! Records

So a few months ago I decided I wanted to start my own record label.

People in the Denver, CO area might have recognized the name I chose from a zine that Josh (Don Silencio) and I finished last year.  We had originally wanted to release tapes, CDs, and EPs with each issue of the zine, but a busy work schedule got in the way and here we are now still talking about issue #2 after a year and a half!

The first release was by a local Colorado band called Dethbox.  It features re-recordings of their demo tracks.  Titled "Offda!," it was their second release and was split between about five or six different labels.

Limited to 600, we screenprinted the first 40.  Black ink on ironed Coke boxes.  Seriously.

I'm really stoked on the finished product.  These kids shred some seriously blistering powerviolence in the vein of the originators (i.e. Charles Bronson, Infest, Capitalist Casualties, etc.).

Check out their music here... www.myspace.com/d3thbox

Also, this cover should sell you on the godamn thing at first glance!  It was drawn by Zach, their singer.  Pushead worship.  I love it.

Get in touch if you'd like buy one.  It'll only cost you a few bucks + shipping.  This summer I'll hopefully have some more money and there'll be an EP and two tapes coming out.  Stay tuned dudes.
