I've gotten hundreds of records since I last updated this blog with mail days. But here are a few recent scores.

Blood Lust Compilation (3x Cassettes) (Out Of 100) (Blackout Rage Records)
Civilized - Dust and Blood (Test Press) (Out Of 33) (Youth Attack Records)
Civilized - Dust and Blood (Second Press) (White) (Out Of 400) (Youth Attack Records)

And Throw Me To The Wind

For the second time, on another side of the country I had the pleasure of booking my favorite band, Self Defense Family (the first time they were still called End Of A Year). I won't go into the details of how this show got fucked and how I ended up doing it but it did well and I'm happy about it. Very happy about it. Below is tbe flyer and a live shot. Before that I want to take a moment to talk about Goodtime Boys. The only band who's song on a split with SDF/EOAY I liked more than the flipside. They might have been some of the nicest and most sincere people I've ever met. They killed it when they played too. I'm glad I got a chance to book them also and I really hope I get to see them again and maybe someday go over to England again and hang out with them there. Cool dudes, backed hard.

A cool picture of Self Defense Family playing from the show.

I got my head tattooed

Clearly I'm a huge Quickand fan for naming my internet persona and also my record label after one of their songs. And it took me a while to figure out how to take it to another level. And that was getting traditional versions of the divers from the cover of slip tattooed on my head.

There will be a best of 2013 list. I'm about to make a few more posts today. Maybe I'll keep it up. Maybe I won't.
