Hi friends! Here’s a surprise Shinobu live album for you. It was recorded 2 years ago at KFJC 89.7 on DJ Honey Bear’s show, and we thought you might like to hear it. The album is for sale for $5 on bandcamp and all proceeds from the record will be donated to the National Immigration Law Center. Enjoy!
I received a call on November 8, 2005 (a day which I remember because I was pulling up to my polling place to vote as the call came in) from Mike Park, asking if Shinobu would be interested in releasing a 7″ on Asian Man as part of a 7″ record club. I was very excited and honored, to say the least, at the prospect of having a record out on my favorite label.
Long story short, the 7″ club never happened, but Mike said he wanted to release our album instead! Worstward, Ho! came out on September 12, 2006, and now, almost a full 10 years later, I’m very excited to be releasing it on wax for the first time! The whole record has been remixed and remastered from the original recordings, and it still sounds very lo-fi, but in a way that you hopefully all enjoy better! Check out “Same Bastards” below and see for yourself!
The LP is still getting pressed at the moment but should be all finished up by Fall 2016. You can PRE-ORDER a copy for yourself HERE!. Our good friend Dianna from Hi-Lo Press is making an exclusive art print to accompany the LP, and other good friend Jeff Rosenstock is helping to co-release the record on his label Really Records. Thanks, you two!
Howdy! I’m excited to announce that our next release will be a 10-inch jammer from ORGANIZED GRIME. OG are some grimey dudes from the Bay Area playing fast, fed-up punk jams. Inspired in part by the late 90′s, beers, and the human condition. The songs are very political and also very funny at the same time. Serious punk that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
If you’d like to pre-order the record, go to the MAILORDER section.
Preview a track below:
Organized Grime will be playing the Shinobu record release show in San Francisco, so you can also pick up their record then if you’d like.
Preview a song from the forthcoming SHINOBU album, 10 Thermidor, called “Culture, Inc.” over at the Onion AV Club. Click HERE for that. We’re very excited to share that with you and can’t wait to share the rest of the record with you soon.
What we’re doing for the album is a pre-order meets fundraiser of sorts. Our good friends at LAUREN RECORDS and REALLY RECORDS will be releasing the record and are currently taking orders for the LP (on either translucent red or white vinyl), along with bundles that include extra goodies like an exclusive zine, tape, and t-shirt. Here’s what that insane t-shirt will look like…
The fundraiser part comes in like this: Once we sell $1000 worth of stuff, we’ll release another song. At $2000, yet another song. Upon hitting $3000, we’ll release the whole dang record for free over at Quote Unquote Records. I hope that sounds coooooool.
