I would be a sucker if I didn't use this blog to shamelessly promote my own releases from time to time so here goes! This past week the new 11 song CD from IL hardcore band POUND FOR POUND has come out on my small DIY label Surprise Attack Records. They've been around since 1999 now and have come a long way. I have the feeling that fans of heavy hardcore like myself, are going to be feeling this stuff and 2006 is going to be a great year for this band. The CD flows nicely and the songs are very memorable and stick in your head after only a few listens. This record will be available from all fine distributors in early Feb but in the mean time you can get it from my website for only $5.00 (actually we sell all of our releases for only $5 so pick up another cd while you're at it!)

A few people have requested pictures of my "hardcore blanket" that I had referred to. Here's a little snapshot of it. These were just some random shirts that I had laying around from 1990-96 probably. I can't take credit for the actual construction of this as a friends mother who was a seamstress actually made it by first sewing the shirts onto a sheet. The sheet was then taken and sewn to a nice fleece blanket. It's actually super thick and warm. That blanket has been to almost every state and slept on many floors in numerous countries.
