Closer than I thought.

It seems the flexi discs may be done sooner than I had anticipated... and me on vacation.  Think I'll have them sent here so I can check them out.  Sitting in the post office with my mail on hold is NOT where I want these things.  Maybe I'll throw a couple of records up here for sale for those of you who check the blog regularly.  Let's say 5 black copies.  Some time next week maybe.  Be ready!

Having fun.

I had to make this record stand out from the black, unmarked flexi it came as.  I could barely see it on my slipmat.  I used a silver paint pen to add a PHILTHY PHONO stamp and number to it.  The 5 test pressings all include everything seen here in the pictures, the only differences are the numbers obviously.

 Added a stamped sleeve, sticker, and a typed strip of paper (by me on my old Royal) to give it a unique quality.

Couldn't get the damn photo to rotate, but this is the label I added to the jacket with the details about the test pressing.  Each one is hand-numbered as well.

Another unrotated photo.  This is the typed strip of paper.  It says "this is a test pressing for conspiracy of owls 'the lesson'"

Took a test pressing (#3 of 5, if you want to get technical) to Burger Records last night on my way to see FUZZ (my 2nd time seeing them, and they continue to amaze) play in Long Beach.  Sat around and gave it a spin with Sean, Lee, and Gabe (of Gap Dream!!).  They were all blown away and how good it sounded.  I was too.  I obviously should have turned up the amp on my first spin.  Now waited to hear from Bobby Harlow and then we are a go.  This is so much fun!

They have arrived!

Test pressings just got here and I had it on the turntable within a minute.  Sounds good.  I'll take one over to Burger here in the next day or two to spin it with them and then onto the next steps.

Check it out!  I'm super excited.

Got an email with a FedEx tracking number... this means the test pressings are on the way.  I am super excited to check them out.  Hopefully should have them in hand by the middle of next week.

Sticker and button packs AVAILABLE NOW!

So let's get going.  Stickers are in and they are AWESOME!  Heavy duty vinyl stickers that are 2 X 3.  So to balance out the USPS's crazy shipping rates PHILTHY PHIL is now offering 2 buttons and 1 sticker shipped for $5 in the U.S. or 2 buttons and 2 stickers for $6.   If you are looking for more or less, just send me a message through FACEBOOK.  Otherwise click the BUY button and I'll do the rest.  Thanks for looking.

No updates on the Conspiracy of Owls release but I am sure you will be hearing from me soon.  I am also in talks with another cool band out of L.A.  Unique and family friendly.  Also have a former Ohioan who I believe is now has the title of doctor who is recording some bluesy rock.  That is all I can say... well I can say that I am SUPER excited.  Plus those are some pretty good hints!

Packages are no longer available.
