Mailorder Questions - Distribution
We're always interested in hearing new bands.If you'd like to send
a demo for us to check out, you can do so by sending it to our mailing
address (which is located on our Contact page).
Please include a contact mailing address as well as an email address
and short bio if possible. We do ask that you DO NOT repeatedly email
us asking if we got it, listened to it, or liked it. If you want
a review of your demo, send it to Lambgoat or the like. If we are
interested we will definitely get in touch with you. If we are not
interested please don't take offense. A lot of factors go into our
choices in signings, timing usually being the most significant. If
you want to send a demo from anywhere other than the North American
continent, don't. Save your postage, there is little to no chance
of us signing any bands from abroad.
AND ADVERTISING REQUESTS
We get a lot of email asking for promotional items and unfortunately
we can not afford to send stuff to everyone.
RADIO: Not every
release will be serviced to radio. Those that are will be serviced
by an outside agency as we no longer will be doing any sort of
in house radio promotion. Please do not email us radio playlists
or promo requests.
E-ZINES: By far the
most popular requests that we receive. There is a lot of you
out there and we would ultimately like to take care of all of
you but that's just not going to happen. Email us with any general
info about your site as well as a web address so that we can
check it out. If you insist on telling us your hit count, save
it, we'd rather know your unique visits count. That information
is a lot more useful to us. We will get in contact with a yes/no,
just give us a little time.
FANZINES: We no longer
will pay for advertisements or send promo for first issue zines.
Sorry, we've gotten burned too many times and simply can't afford
to do it anymore. If you just want to run one of our ads by all
means drop us an email. If you'd like to interview one of our
bands and need contact information, check the Bands page.
There should be all that information available for every band
found there. Use our regular mailing address to send us sample
copies of your zine to be considered for promo and advertising
in the future.
We realize the spectrum of mailorder questions is big so we are
not expecting this list to be applicable for everyone. But hopefully
the combination of this and our Ordering
Info page will be useful for some of our most common questions.
"How much is
it for these two records and this shirt including postage?"
All items in our store have prices listed, check the Order
Info section for shipping costs.
"I noticed you
had some records in your Discography section that's not in
your regular catalog, can I still order these?
No. If it's not in our regular catalog section that means it's
out-of-press. The Discography is
simply there for the collector nerds like ourselves who want
to see how many were pressed on colored vinyl.
"Is there a phone
number I can call to place an order?"
Yes. This info is found in the Ordering
"Do you guys
sell or trade test pressings of any of your records?"
"Would your guys
be interested in trading colored vinyl for nude pictures of
my older sister and her friends?"
No.....mmmm....well, send us a sample first and we'll let you
"Can I order
multiple copies of a particular record and get them all on
For the most part, yes. We are not going to send 20 copies all
on color but a few copies, no problem.
do you still have on colored vinyl?"
Whatever is available in the webstore is what we have.
"I am from Indonesia,
can you send me free music and shirts?"
No. Please stop emailing us about this. We can not afford to
send you anything. Sorry.
"Can you email
me all the lyrics to a particular record?"
No. All our records come with lyrics.
We are not a distro. We can not buy anyone else's releases or trade
for some of our own. We currently do not have the means to do so.
Sorry. All of our major distributers and stores are currently handled
by our exclusive distributer Lumberjack Distribution, most questions
can be fielded better by them than us directly.
To a small degree we do deal direct with small
show distros and the like, so feel free to get in contact with any
