After putting Cacophone Records on hiatus for a bit, Kip and I have decided to get back to doing the thing we love most: putting out cool/fun/interesting/under-appreciated, sound-action rock’n’roll on vinyl. We figured we’d start with a reissue of 1313 Mockingbird Lane’s “Have Hearse Will Travel” album, which we consider to be one of the most criminally overlooked slabs of ‘90s garage punk ever (the 1990 release received very little distribution and zero promotion). On top of that, they were an Albany-based band close to our hearts.
We’ve decided to use PledgeMusic (http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/1313mockingbirdlane/) to both help us get the word out and to (hopefully) help with the exorbitant costs of pressing things on vinyl these days. We’ve come up with some ultra-cool rewards, like a super-limited “blood-splatter” vinyl edition, T-shirts, hoodies, even a cassette version — and they all come with a digital download that includes rare & unreleased bonus trax.
So, as a fellow music fan, we thought we’d let you know about this, in case you were interested. Maybe you’re not, which is totally cool. But, if you are, all you need to do is visit this link:
