Stuff We Sell

Projects in the Works …


The Evens have begun tracking at Inner Ear for a new full-length album. There’s no official word as to when we should expect a release yet, but we’re hoping for sometime in the fall. We’ll have more information once the recording is complete.

Edie Sedgwick is currently wrapping up their recording for a new full-length, which is being mixed by Trans Am’s Phil Manley. The tentative title is We Wear White, and it'll most likely be released this fall.

Our pursuit to repress the Lungfish records on vinyl continues this August with the return of Indivisible and Talking Songs for Walking. We’ll post an official re-release date in the weeks to come.

<b><a href="">Redgrave</a></b> – <em><a href="">National Act</a></em><br />


We’re now accepting pre-orders for Redgrave’s new 12 inch EP (released by Lovitt Records). For those not familiar with Redgrave’s music, I’ll try to explain…
They’re a two-piece band from Chicago with a massive rock sound and some pretty powerful vocals. This is a great sounding record, and it’s not studio magic either. I saw them play down in Austin a few months ago, and their live show was fantastic. Angie Mead has an enviable guitar sound – deliberately gritty and blown out (without being too gritty and blown out). Top-billing (for me, of course) goes to the last song: “Taunt”. Total scorcher.
I should add … Beth Hoeckel’s cover art is a perfect fit for the overall mood of this record.

We’ll start shipping on Monday, June 11th.


Ignition "Complete Services" and Make-Up "Destination" Get Re-Issue Treatment


On June 18th Dischord will be reissuing the Ignition discography CD, Complete Services, and the 12" vinyl version of the debut Make-Up album, Destination: Love; Live! At Cold Rice.

Ignition (1986–1989) featured Alec MacKaye (Untouchables, The Faith, The Warmers), Chris Bald (The Faith, Chrisbald 96), Dante Ferrando (Iron Cross, Gray Matter), and Chris Thomson (Soul Side, Circus Lupus, Monorchid, Skull Kontrol). Complete Services, originally released on CD in 1994 and long out of print, compiled all of the band's recorded material. An additional unreleased track of a Vibrators cover, Keep it Clean was also included. The CD was remastered in 2012 by TJ Lipple and is being reissued in limited quantities. In addition, Complete Services will be issued (with special packaging) in Japan in conjunction with Disc Union.

Destination: Love; Live! At Cold Rice was originally released in 1996. Make-Up released 4 more albums on Dischord and K-Records before disbanding in 2005. Destination was remastered and reissued in 2009 but didn’t stay in print for long so the album is again getting the reissue treatment.

In May 2012 Make-Up announced their first new concert dates since 2005. The dates are to coincide with the All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals in the UK and new Jersey.
