Not the first to report this, but certainly not the last judging from the overall awesomeness of it. Basically Columbus' one and only label at the moment (?) is going to give you one essential single a month (and there shall be no lapses or lates) for the next year. Basically Ron House returns to vinyl.
Not to say I'm not psyched about each and every one of these, just saying. Is it too much to ask though for verification that said label, Columbus Discount Records will continue to release some full-lengths (by at least a few of these bands) during this malaise?
The lurid details...
Columbus Discount Records is proud to announce CDR-SC-Y1! (Columbus Discount Records Singles Club Year One!). We've heard that some other grunge label is doing one of these things, but we been working real hard planning this for a long time now, so we ain't gonna let that stop us. We're mighty proud of it, and think you'll probably like it, too.
Without further ado, here's the roster for CDR-SC-Y1!, in no particular order:
>El Jesus De Magico
>The Harrisburg Players (A comp of archival recordings from Harrisburg, OH featuring Tommy Jay & co.!)
>Dan Melchior und das Menace
>Sandwitch (featuring Ron House of TJSA, Great Plains, Ego Summit infamy!)
>The Unholy 2
To put your mind at ease, we want you to know that we're working very closely (and well ahead of schedule) with the participating artists and with our pressing plant to ensure that everything we promise you actually comes out and comes out on time. We're taking every measure to make sure that CDR-SC-Y1! doesn't become one of those singles clubs that takes twice a long as it's supposed to, or doesn't deliver products by the artists that were initially announced.
So how does it work? Basically, you entrust us (you trust us, right?) with some of your hard-earned cash (payment options and exact $$$ amounts are below) and we send you twelve 7" records that we will be releasing exclusively to CDR-SC-Y1! members over the next year.
