GRUNGE!

6060

On November 13th Mudhoney will be playing at Neumos in Seattle with Brothers of the Sonic Cloth (Tad Doyle’s band) and Unnatural Helpers. The show is a celebration of Michael Lavine’s new book titled, Grunge. Michael has taken numerous photos of Sub Pop’s artists over the years and many of them go way, way back. The book is pretty frickin’ amazing. You can see some of them in this video. Check it out and come join us. It’ll be fun!

If you’d like to have a copy of the book autographed by Michael, you can catch him at the following locations:

Friday, November 13 there will be a signing at noon at:

New Grand Archives CD/LP Sep 15th - Free GA bandana with pre-order!

5882

On September 15th, we’re releasing a new Grand Archives record. It’s their second, it’s called Keep in Mind Frankenstein and, oh man, are we excited about it! We are also pretty excited about the special treat we have for you pre-orderers of this record. If you order the CD or LP (which comes with a digital download code) by September 15th, we’ll throw in a totally limited (and equally sweet) custom screen-printed Grand Archives bandana at no extra charge. This was something the band thought up and we got behind it immediately. Grand Archives want to give their fans bandanas? Then they get bandanas! We will also throw in Grand Archives and Sub Pop related buttons and stickers. So let’s do a quick recap: pre-order by September 15th, get a Grand Archives bandana, buttons and stickers. Plus, the handsomely packaged (the jackets for both formats feature some fancy, gold foil-stamped printing) CD and/or LP! Oh yeah, you’ll also get access to a stream of the entire record so you can listen to it right away. This is very, very good for you.

Pick up Keep In Mind Frankenstein here.

Check out a track here.

And, you really should see Grand Archives on the road!

Kinski celebrates their 10-year anniversary

5859

This Saturday night, Aug. 29, our friends in Kinski will be celebrating their 10-year anniversary! Details about the show are in the note below and you should certainly attend!

Hey Everyone,

We’re celebrating Kinski’s 10th anniversary as a band. Can you believe that?

We’re going to do it at a little bar in Seattle that has meant a lot to us over the years, the Monkey Pub.

The show is this Saturday, August 29th and it’s part of the N.U.D.E. festival. Also on the bill are our pals the Peripherals and Fortress of Victory.

There’s a bunch of other shows happening in the U. District that night as part of the festival too. We’ll be going on later, so swing on by.

And Kinski’s original drummer, Dave Weeks, will be sitting in with us on a couple of our older numbers from the early days.

We’ll also continue the celebration Sept 11th at Chop Suey with Lesbian.

Thanks

XOXOXO
Kinski

Doughnut Eating Contest

5724

Our friends over at Light in the Attic Records asked us to participate in the 3rd Annual Top Pot Doughnut Eating Contest. This Saturday, August 1st, we’ll congregate at 1pm at Top Pot’s Downtown location with a few other Seattle Record Labels as well as fans of competitive eating. Here’s the scoop: one record label representative will be teamed with a volunteer from the crowd for a tag-team like take on the contest. In total there will be 6 pairs – the 5 label designated eaters (Barsuk, Hardly Art, Sub Pop, Suicide Squeeze, and Light In The Attic) and Billy the Fridge (yes, he’s coming back to defend his ’08 crown), plus their randomly selected teammate – competing for the top prize. Competing on our behalf is Curtis Hall, drummer for Grand Archives. Curtis’s eating credentials are renowned; he took on the Big Texan 72oz free steak challenge and graciously paid for his meal. You should come down and cheer Curtis on or put your name in the hat to sit alongside him (it would be pretty much like getting signed to Sub Pop). Live entertainment will be provided by Unnatural Helpers (fuck yes!), your MC is El Vez (nice touch Light in the Attic) and there will be DJing, lots of DJing.

It’s going to be awesome. Seriously, don’t let another competitive eating challenge (or Unnatural Helper’s show) get away from you this year, come out and join us.
