Razorcake Update: June 2010
New Shirts, Magazines, and Books!

GIVE RAZORCAKE A HAND… AND COOL PLACES FREE COPIES OF THE ZINE

A huge portion of Razorcake’s expansion over the past couple years has been through our “Reader Suggested Stores.” It’s simple. Fans of the magazine drop us a line through our website and inform us about record stores, book stores, infoshops, and everything in between, that they feel would be a good fit for selling Razorcake.

Now, aside from constantly looking for places to distribute the mag, we are also curious about places where people will have the chance to read it. Places we can send a single free copy to (it’ll work like a free subscription) and it’ll find an interested audience (not just a single person). Such places might include: coffee shops, libraries, anything DIY, bike co-ops, community radio stations, as well as any neat ideas you might have. Our guiding principles are simple. No douchebaggy places. Places you like to hang out in or currently frequent. Please don’t send us your own address. And, we’re sorry, but this is only for the United States. (If you have a secret postal unicorn that erases the cost of international postage, please send it our way.)

Please contact us through this page (just so we can keep track of everything and follow all leads):
http://www.razorcake.org/site/modules.php?name=StoreContact

The more contact info you can provide, the better. We will be double-checking that these issues will be going to a good home.

Whether it works out or not, we’ll hit you back with a complimentary issue (or tack on an extra issue to your sub.) Thanks.

DISTRO UPDATE

MEAN JEANS: Are You Serious?: LP
The 13 garage pop tunes of Are You Serious? harkens back to the Lookout! Records of the early ‘90s, when pop punk meant snotty low-brow 3 chord goodness and not glossy soundtracks to mall strolls. Like any good cretin’s soundtrack, the "songs about partying" vs. "songs about girls" ratio leans fully toward PBR fueled pogo punk. This record comes with a download card. (Dirtnap)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=618

SHELLSHAG: Rumors In Disguise: LP
From the grin-laced stubborn pride in Shell’s vocals on “Resillient Bastard” to Jen Shag’s tom-heavy heartbeat rhythms on the crunchy duet “Means That Much”, every inch put to tape is as real as it gets. Finding honesty and purity of creative expression in the vastness of what our musical landscape has evolved into is a more difficult task than ever before, and it takes a band like Shellshag and a record like Rumors in Disguise to answer that search. (Don Giovanni)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=619

POTENTIAL JOHNS: 2nd 7” EP
Solo pop explorations courtesy of Jeff Burke of The Marked Men! Two tracks of lo fi pop genius, recorded on the eve of Jeff's moving to Japan. While retaining the catchiness and energy of past efforts, the songwriting here takes a turn for the reflective and bittersweet, and the tempos are slowed down a bit from the break-neck pace of your typical Marked Men song. (Dirtnap)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=620

ERGS!: Thrash Compactor: One-sided 7”
Mostly recorded 7 years ago, the Ergs record that never was, but always should have been, finally sees the light of day in the form of this one-sided 7" EP. Rippin' hardcore/punk along the lines of bands like Adrenaline OD, "Bonus Fat"-era Descendents, and Angry Samoans. (Firestarter/Grave Mistake)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=621

CANADIAN RIFLE: Facts: 7”
Following up 2009's full-length - Visibility Zero - would be an impossible feat for the average band. Luckily, Canadian Rifle is far from your average band. Three more songs of strained, tortured, resilience. A chaotic whirlwind of doubt, with hot, bright, lightning strikes of melody. Another great addition to their ever-growing discography. (Residue)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=622

DAYLIGHT ROBBERY: Through the Confusion: LP
Daylight Robbery take the best of what they have done in the past and take it to the next level. They blend their classic male/female vocals perfectly with masterful songwriting. Though the Confusion is as dark and haunting as it is amazing. Melodic with a pure punk sound. This three piece unit has just put together a record that pulls in the genius of Wire's Pink Flag, X's Los Angeles, and a sound that is unmistakably their own. (Residue)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=623

AIRFIX KITS: Flex Time: 7”
Airfix Kits emerge from the Giant Haystacks cocoon, vocally led by Allan, a British ex-patriot. The Airfix Kits shed many of the Haystacks’ Minutemen-isms. Charming noodling is replaced by tighter, bouncier songs. Reminiscent, in the best ways, of early Who, early Jam, and Gang Of Four: specific, but universal narratives played like actual lives are at stake… with a beat you can snap your fingers to. (Deranged)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=624

STATUES: New People Make Us Nervous: LP
Finally re-released, this record contains 8 songs of spot on power-pop/punk. Residing somewhere between the fancy outfits of the Tranzmitors and the street gang-ness of the Young Offenders, Statues do some serious damage on this record. Highly highly recommended. (Deranged)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=625

THAT’S INCREDIBLE: Self-titled 7”
That's Incredible are a new four-piece band from San Pedro, California made up of current and former members of Toys That Kill, The Soviettes, Killer Dreamer and Dick Army. Their debut release bears influence of their other bands' signature styles, but it has an awesome new sound and style all its own coming from the chemistry created by the combining of them all into one. (It's Alive)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=626

STUN GUNS: And There Was Nothing We Could Do: LP
The Stun Guns were Miami's favorite fuck ups circa ‘95/‘96. Like if Radon had been transported to the urban corruption and cultural clashes of Miami all the while retaining their light-hearted, witty, numb-nut spirit. Any fan of bands like Onion Flavored Rings, Hidden Spots, Future Virgins, and the Beltones should consider this re-issue a mandatory history lesson. (Do Ya Hear We?)
http://www.razorcake.org/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=627

DAN PADILLA / DRUNKEN BOAT: Split 7”
Two songs from two killer bands. Portland's Drunken Boat and San Diego's Dan Padilla have been pleasing the ears of total dirtballs for years now, both live and on record, and this new split is no exception. I swear there's a riff in Drunken Boat's "Burning City" which sounds exactly like "Mama Mia" by Abba, instantly making it my favorite Drunken Boat song ever! Double self-released by the bands. (Fast Crowd / Must Yearn)
