Got an email from the band yesterday with some input. Very cool to get an email with this name as who it is from. It is kind of surreal. He gave some some ideas about cover, how he'd love it to be a co-release with BURGER RECORDS, and some other formalities. This is spectacular and can't happen fast enough if you ask me.

Philthy Phonographic's (PHIL 001) first release is in motion. I've been in talks with the infamous Burger Records to co-release it with me. I think I'd like to do the first release as a one-sided flexi-disc with a color cover. I love flexis, but am always disappointed they don't have a cover to go with them. Since this is my baby, I get to do what I want. I'm thinking a hand-numbered limited edition of 250 black flexis. I have a band that has already sent me songs, but that is still a secret. Sorry. I will let you know that they are mono alternate versions from their debut album, which is SPECTACULAR and out of print despite being repressed 4 and 5 times. I am very excited about this and will keep you informed and we get closer to pre-order.
