Sound as ever
Shaved Christ "Bad Mind" 7" out now. Bako Bandcamp.
Shaved Christ "Bad Mind" 7" is here now. "Aging punks living in Athens, Georgia, still listening to Void, Pick Your King, Discharge, and early NYHC trying to make any sense of this bizarre reality...featuring the powerhouse rhythm section of American Cheeseburger." Six immediately classic hardcore songs on random color recycled vinyl with 100% post consumer jackets plus download code. If you order from the brand new Bako bandcamp you can get the digital files in the here and now while waiting for my casual self to mail the record. Speaking of bandcamp, I will be adding the whole Bako catalog slowly but surely so soon there will be a way to get all bakery titles in the digital while circumventing the old iTunes. That that this us underway I am certain the music fans of the world will begin it's newest exodus to some other medium or site.
Sound as ever
Eggplant, 12XU, Shaved Christ
Merry new year! What's news? Ten Volt Shock will tour Australia soon. Check on the dates down there. Holopaw just released a new LP which is wonderful. Watch the new video. Finally getting things going on these Eggplant and 12XU singles 12"s. Also just spoke to friends in Shaved Christ and will do a 7". From Tres Kids to Pink Panties to Goat Shanty to No! to Divorce to American Cheeseburger, I've loved every band Jason has drummed in so I am really excited to get to be a part of maybe my favorite to date. Clancy's (Witches) voice is tough too but I wish goatbot was in the band.
Street Eaters tour Yurp!
I wish I was with Street Eaters. Not just because they are wonderful, honest, talented friends. They are traveling a foreign land and I want to be there again (Hallo Ingo! RIP son of Nick). You will want to be there too- every time I see this band they blow me away more and more. They are about to embark on a lengthy European tour with new songs and new 12" in hand. Us lousy Americans can get it now from computer and will have to sit tight to spin a record. See dates here if you happen to be in yurp these next few months. Brown it now here!
Cara Beth Satlino (Outer Spaces, Witches) on tour
Street Eaters on the road again. etc.
Baton Rouge LP repress. PIX artshow. The Victory of Flight.
Hey gang. Just got a small batch of Baton Rouge "Fragments D'eux Mêmes" LP repress with same red vinyl but different covers (Jcard w/poly bag as opposed to LP jacket) so let's go. Eggplant LP in the process. Stay tuned. This one's been a classic in my eyes since 1994.
I've been asked by my buddy Sean Mahan to be a part of the Plan-it-X fest art show he and Erin Tobey are curating; so I suppose that means some LP artwork and local St. Augustine show flyer artwork will be there by yours truly. Thanks you guys!
Lastly and not leastly. My buddies Matt and Dave of No Idea and many many great bands throughout the years also have an interview series on their radio show The Top Shelf. Go here to hear them interview me on the making of Twelve Hour Turn's The Victory of Flight. Twelve Hour Turn will also be playing one show this summer in Portland, Oregon on July 18th preceding our best friend Julie's wedding. Thanks friends!
Street Eaters "Rusty Eyes & Hydrocarbons" cassette, 12XU "Les Grandes Marées" LP scratch & dent, CD sale.
Hey now, I've got a limited number of Street Eaters "Rusty Eyes and Hydrocarbons" cassettes released by France's Rock'n'Roll Masturbation (merci Séb). Speaking of the French, I'm also posting a limited number of scratch and dent 12XU "Les Grandes Marées" LP at a sale price. These traveled from Lyon to St. Augustine but did not arrive unweathered. They are slightly banged and bent at their corners but vinyl, obi, and in most cases pocket sleeve are untouched. 12XU CDs are finally here as well complete with their own little obi wrapping a jewel case. Slowly glance to your left.
In other news...cds. Too obvious to make a nuts joke. No I want to talk about 80s technology, last generation's demo tape (predicted to me by one Kurt Burja over a decade ago), today's coaster or library scan card as seen at my school-the compact disc. Personally, while usually preferring vinyl, I never had anything against the cd. Nowadays I find myself sticking up for this underdog; I admittedly like them better now that they are shunned by the hip and tech friendly punks. Yes, let's come full circle a little ahead of the paradigm and say CDs are cool (again?) 'cause they are uncool. .. .huh?. Why? They take fewer resources to produce on a number of levels than their Caddy boat of a cousin the LP, and they still provide you with some tangible connection to hold and enjoy as you listen to an album for the first time. Yeah, it's smaller so artwork suffers, but doesn't it already? Bands don't need size constraints to release suck ass art to go along with their album. A remedy for that would be for aural artists to employ their visual buddies to whip up something pleasing to the eye. Still not convinced? How about 'cause they are now durt CHEAP? It's beautiful like going to a second hand store and finding something you dig, but the price tag is surprisingly lower than you would gladly pay. Well, now you can get BAKO CDs for little bread! Try look! I still truly love everything Bakery has been a part of, and I want it out there in the world.
Signed-Get this shit out of my house.
Street Eaters "Rusty Eyes & Hydrocarbons" LP now available
Hey, now available-vinyl for Street Eaters' "Rusty Eyes. .. ." w/dowload code.
12XU "Les Grandes Marées" LP out now! Street Eaters & Landlord on tour now!
Here now, this LP comes to you with the always fresh design from the 12XU family complete with pocket sleve and obi. It also comes 'fresh off the jet' from Lyon, France with high travel and packaging expenses that I sadly pass on to you, the fan; this one is sold for a bit more than typically done here at Bakery Outlet. You won't regret the purchase though. Street Eaters and Landlord are on tour out west together right now so go catch them!
Sorry so sloppy,
Cara Beth Satalino "The Good Ones" 12" & The Cougs 7" out now! Street Eaters on tour now!
Yes! Both on beautiful mixed color 'recycled' vinyl, they are here. Also get CBS 12" from Salinas. 12XU LP is on its way so sit tight. This one will be pricey due to overseas complications but trust me, it is worth it! Street Eaters, 12XU, Old Growth, The Cougs, and Landlord are all on tour right now (separately mostly) so go catch them!
RIP Budget Records in St. Augustine.. ..
Be seeing you.

I am very excited to be working with Marco/Salinas Records on this one. The Cougs 7" is also close to finished. I just got the master for the Eggplant singles LP which will be titled "Milk Milk Lemonade.....Around the Corner Chocolate's Made". I wouldn't expect a lesser title from members of Wat Tyler. I first heard this band on the Allied Records "Music for the Proletariat" CD in 1994 but listed as Wat Tyler. I always wanted the band to collect all their quick pop songs with Julie leading vocals in one place. Turned out they did under the name Eggplant releasing an LP and a number of singles. My favorites were always the singles and now I am excited to collect them all on one LP! Thanks Sean!

Lastly, Budget Records has started hosting shows and also houses a fairly new No Idea distro order. Also lots of great used stuff coming in the door daily so check in often.
Greetings, and so long
Twelve Hour Turn shows were more fun than I coud've asked for. Thanks Tony and all at Fest 9 for making it happen. See some photos Nicole Kibert took here. No Idea has repressed "The Victory of Flight" LP and Split LP with I Hate Myself. Sean Mahan also designed a new shirt for us. "The Expense of Flight" CD collection will be finished in the next few months and there is a little talk of doing a few northwest shows. Ten Volt Shock's "78 Hours" LP/CD is here at long last! Old Growth's 3rd LP "Out of the Sand and Into the Streets" should be finished within the next month. Also in the works are Witches "Forever" LP/CD and Baton Rouge LP (members 12XU and Daitro). In other news, Bakery partner and best bud Lenny is a father! Marlowe was born November 5th. Congratulations Lenny and Jessie! Also, St. Augustine has gained a great new record store Budget Records located at 212 San Marco Ave across from FSDB. You'll be able to find Bakery Outlet label and distro there soon too as was once found inside Loose Screws. Lastly, St. Augustine has lost Reese "Grampa" Smith, owner of Grampa's Music, who passed away October 18th. Grampa for me was one of the most important people in this community. We met shortly after I moved here seven years ago. I loved talking to him about old acoustic instruments, and then buying old acoustic instruments from him. Grampa's lives on though and is still the best place around to find some really cool, affordable Silvertone or Harmony guitbox or ukelele. Go there now. Be gone.
Don't let the music die, and don't replace me
Twelve Hour Turn will play Fest 9 and a few shows the week prior. It will have been over eight years since we have played. I pick those turkeys up from the airport this weekend and then we practice. No Idea has repressed "The Victory of Flight" LP which has not been in tangible form for some time now. "The Expense of Flight" CD collection will be finished in the next few months. Ten Volt Shock's "78 Hours" LP/CD is here at long last! Take a look. Old Growth's 3rd LP "Out of the Sand and Into the Streets" should be finished within the next month. Also in the works are Witches "Forever" LP/CD and Baton Rouge LP (members 12XU and Daitro). In other news, NPR covered a story on Emperor X burying tapes and leaving coordinates for people to hunt them down. Listen here. Ashley heard it last Sunday morning in the kitchen and ran to get me. I love Chad. Maybe one day he will dig up that Emperor X record we had talked about Bako releasing. Stay Loose.
Believe it or Don't
Tubers and Alligator are about to embark upon a short tour of the southeast. Look at dates here. Just spent some time with Sean Mahan. We recorded a few new Verde songs with Tom at his Warehouse Studios to go on his Skinny Records comp. I also got to see Sean's newest works being a skate deck and new print which is on a paper-thin maple wood. Its almost like a small original. Look at them here. Buy directly from Sean here. Old Growth's 3rd LP is being mastered and will now be a co-release with France's Echo Canyon. Believe it or don't, Twelve Hour Turn will play Fest 9 this coming October. Hopefully we can manage to finish "The Expense of Flight" CD collection by this time as well. Ten Volt Shock's new "78 Hours" LP/CD is lost in customs without a word. Hopefully more on that soon. Stay Loose.
Its warmish here but the ocean water is cool. Summer vacation is upon me for a few weeks now already and there is much to look forward to. Old Growth has finished recording their 3rd LP and it is almost ready to be mastered. I have to say it's the best one yet and this time with Luke taking lead vocal on three songs. Twelve Hour Turn will play Fest 9 this coming October. I am very excited at the thought of playing music with John, Dave, and Matt again. Hopefully I can manage to finish "The Expense of Flight" CD collection by this time as well. Tubers and Alligator will take a little trip southeast in early August. Excited we get to play out of town this summer, and as a four piece. Look at dates here. Ten Volt Shock's new "78 Hours" LP/CD is lost in customs without a word. Hopefully more on that soon. Be cool.
Do me a kindness.
Tubers and Street Eaters are back from our west coast tour. We were met with kindness from Fleshies, Triclops!, Wild ASSumptions, Classics of Love, Stoned at Heart, Corey in San Diego, Severance Package, Jason & Big Kids, Old Growth, Frank Barber, John Sutherland, Julie and Daniel, Lucas in Seattle and so many more people and bands. Cassette and Holopaw are about to take off on their own tours up the east coast. Look at dates here. Ten Volt Shock's new "78 Hours" LP/CD should be here now. It is not. Where is it? Shit if I know. Hopefully more on that soon. Anyhow, this will be their 3rd album. They are a 3 piece. They are from Germany. They have been a band now for over ten years. They plan on touring the USA summer 2011. In my opinion they are one of the best DIY punk bands out there. Signing off!
Tubers & Street Eaters tour & new Ten Volt Shock "78 Hours" LP/CD
Harvest of Hope Fest was wonderful. Thanks to Ryans for doing it again, friends from far away for rocking it, family for making the trip and trying to make the trip only to have flight cancelled, Vegfund and Vegan Outreach for providing important information and snacks to go alongside the Bakery Outlet records table, and Sean, Kelly, Tom (Skinny Records), Erin, Dominic, and Ashley for helping with table.

We will play with Fleshies, Triclops!, Wild ASSumptions, Classics of Love, and more. Of course on the northwest end we have Old Growth to thank for playing and setting up shows as well as one DJ Frank Barber who is kind enough to set up a few and also to spin Bakery Outlet releases on his own Campfire Island radio show straight out of Olympia. In other news, Ten Volt Shock's new "78 Hours" LP/CD is almost here making its way across the Atlantic as I type. This will be their 3rd album. They are a 3 piece. They are from Germany. They have been a band now for over ten years. They plan on touring the USA summer 2011. In my opinion they are one of the best DIY punk bands out there. I am steppin' out to "78 Hours" right now as a matter of fact. Be seeing you!

Go here to see updates and infos but more importantly go to harvestofhope.net to see what this inspiring event will benefit.

Tofurky Trot 2010
Hey! Cassette "Shining Like A New Dime" CDEP is here. The first offering from Samantha and company since her first album 2005. It is beautiful. Tubers "Anachronous" CD/LP parts arrive one by one as we prepare for its unleashing upon this prompt and timely world. It should be released sometime December. I am excited to announce Bakery will co-release Ten Volt Shock's new LP "57 Hours". This will be the third album from my favorite German post-hardcore band. Holopaw asked 24 artists to respond to their new record. The artists did so in the form of drawings, paintings, collage and video. Try look so far. Well, this Thanksgiving has arrived too soon for me to materialize my vision of a benefit fun run for animal rights, or as it shall be properly titled "Tofurky Trot". Mark my words it shall happen Thanksgiving 2010 Saint Augustine, Florida so get fit!
Who's the Boss?
Whoah! I'd like to say how happy I am that Holopaw "Oh Glory, Oh Wilderness" CD is out now! Lp released by Obscurist Press and 7" single by Houseplant! Get it directly here from Bakery catalog page, iTunes, or go here to No Idea. Soon downloadable also from Emusic, Amazon, and others. Please let me know if you'd like to see this or other Bakery releases in your local record store so we can do our best to make that happen. Cassette "Shining Like A New Dime" CDEP will be out November 20th. The first offering from Samantha and company since her first album 2005 it is worth the wait. In other news, Fest 8 came and went; I believe it may have been the most successful one yet in way of celebrating friendships and music without losing my mind in the incredible over-stimulation that such a large event can bring. Thanks Tony, Cam, No Idea and all else for making it happen. Thanks to Matty, Daniel, and all at Bo Diddley's old house for the great house show. Thanks
Nervous Dogs, and Future Virgins for playing. Thanks Street Eaters, Old Growth, and 12XU for traveling long distances to rock it for us. I am happy to be a part of the Old Growth/12XU split 7" along with Pure Pain Sugar. So now I am 12XU's boss I guess you could say. They were on the clock the whole time they traveled the east coast USA. Well then, 2 members of this band operate Echo Canyon which will co-release Tubers "Anachronous" CD/LP along with No Idea and Bakery. So now are they the boss of me? Am I the boss of me? Who's the boss? You all are pretty boss yourselves.
Chello! Holopaw's "Oh Glory, Oh Wilderness" CD/LP is now available for preorder from No Idea here! Release date is November 3rd. They are about to embark on east coast travels up to CMJ and back. Cassette "Shining Like a New Dime" Cdep release is closer than we know. Stay tuned. Of course the Fest approaches. I look forward to seeing members of the bakery family play: Street Eaters,
Old Growth, 12XU,
Vicious Fishes(EYC), and
Nervous Dogs. Check here for schedule. I am hopeful that Tubers "Anachronous" CD/LP will be available "unofficially" before "official" release date yet to be determined. Street Eaters and Bakery are so excited about their recently released 12" "We See Monsters" that we decided to do a cd version that will hopefully be ready for Fest time as well. Old Growth and 12XU will head up the east coast directly after Fest. Landlord plan to record another album in January and follow with tour. Regardless of who shall release that thing I definitely look forward to browning it and seeing them. Dudelord broke up...no 7". Later days.
I'll be back for my cocktail...fruit!
Street Eaters' Florida tour was wonderful. They will be back in October and I can't wait. I am back from Best Friends Day "The Ocho". Thank you Curtis and crew! While I did not partake, the impromtu mud-wrastlin' at Hadad's was a highlight. Ripping a hole in the seat of my favorite trunks at the bottom of the inflatable water-slide and having to stop the violation of an organic heirloom watermelon, an offering to my best buds, by its pickling with vodka while my best buds witnessed could be viewed as the lowpoints. What happened just moments before to said watermelon is unmentionable and thus proved watermelon to be inedible by soberish friends. Hey! Look who's coming to Fest 8: Des_Ark, Tubers, Old Growth, 12XU, Street Eaters, Brainworms, Vicious Fishes (previously Environmental Youth Crunch) and hopefully more Bakery family. Holopaw's "Oh Glory, Oh Wilderness" CD is once again delayed a bit. Expect a release date a little later in October now. Surfer Blood has found another party to release their upcoming "Astro Coast". It's gonna be good so look out. Adios Surfer Blood.
The Honeymoon is Over!
My bride Ashley and I are just back from Key West where we navigated between the Atlantic and the Gulf, the vegan spots and the old neighborhood, the pool and the kitchen. It has been a time only to return to 3 brand new Bako releases on our doorstep. Old Growth's "Under the Sun" LP is done at long last! Their split 7" with 12XU is also here!! Certainly some of the best offerings from each band. Berkeley's Street Eaters' "We See Monsters" 12" with download card is also here! On their heals are Cassette's "Shining Like a New Dime" CDep and Surfer Blood's "Astro Coast" CD. Holopaw's "Oh Glory, Oh Wilderness" CD is to be released officially October 6th. I surely have my work cut out for me before school is back in session. I hope to see you at Pop Mayhem or Best Friends Day before then.
School is Out.
Have at you! Yes, I teach and it is surreal to have 10 weeks off during summertime. It is also surreal that I am getting hitched July 18th. So now I have the time to plan my wedding and work on Bakery Outlet. But enough about me, let me tell you about my band Tubers. "Anachronous" CD/LP is close to being sent off to press. Holopaw full length CD "Oh, Glory. Oh, Wilderness." is in the works and now will be released on LP by our great friend Travis Fristoe and his Obscurist Press. Street Eaters "We See Monsters" 12" will be here very soon. Old Growth "Under the Sun" LP and split 7" with 12XU are so damn close. Cassette S/T LP almost here. Don't forget Landlord "Lifers" CD and Nervous Dogs "Great Doors" E.P. are here now. New Bako plans involve Dudelord, featuring 12 Hr Turn bandmate Matt Oliver on drums, which will record for a 7" this month. Lastly, I will release a full length by a great band Surfer Blood from West Palm Beach where I grew up. Where were bands like them when I was in high school?
Tubers tour was fantastic. Big cups of Soy Frickalatte to Old Growth, Dudelord, Science of Yabra, Daniel, John Sutherland, Ian, Jake, Bruce, Dutcth Bros for the free coffee and interest in our nightlife, Wild Assumptions, Black Rainbow, Defiance Ohio, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Pickup Pattern, White Night, and all who arranged shows. I'm sure I left out some important folks-sorry. Those suspect of vegans and those who card only me, an elder in our group- you blew it. Tubers will finish a new CD/LP titled "Anachronous" once Rob Mcgregor finishes moving into his new studio. Congratulations Rob! Bakery will release it along with No Idea and Echo Canyon. Hey! Landlord "Lifers" CD and Nervous Dogs "Great Doors" E.P. are here! Believe it now. Old Growth "Under the Sun" LP and Cassette S/T LP almost here. New Bako plans involve Holopaw full length "All Holes, No Glory" and a Dudelord 7" which features old 12 Hr Turn bandmate Matt Oliver on drums. Be seeing you.
Almost Ready, Almost There.
Hello! Harvest of Hope Fest was fun and inspirational. Thanks Ryan Murphy, Ryan Dettra and all else for making it happen. Seeing my brother and sister, The Night Marchers, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Fiya, EYC, Good Luck, Paul Baribeau, camping with Ashley, Sean and Kelly, and lots of friends rarely seen were the highlighs. Tubers is almost finished recording with Mr Rob Mcgregor for a new CD/LP currently titled "Anachronous". We are excited to have recorded it with new tuber Matt Sweeting. Hopefully all will be done by the time we fly west for Tour March 27-April 12. A few days agoTubers was lucky enough to play with Nervous Dogs while delivering their new 7" to them with some covers whipped up quicklike. Proper covers should be done in a week for the official release of "Great Doors" E.P. Landlord "Lifers" CD should be here anytime as well. Working on covers for Old Growth "Under the Sun" LP and Cassette S/T LP. The vinyl for both sits in my "office". I think thats all for now. Be seeing you.
Harvest of Hope Benefit.
Hey! Good friend Ryan Murphy works with Harvest of Hope Foundation, which provides emergency services & financial aid to migrant workers and their families. He, along with help from rest of No Idears/Southern Lovin' and many others, has been planning the first annual Harvest of Hope Fest March 6,7,& 8 at the St. Johns County Fairgrounds in our very own St. Augustine, Florida. Some Bakery bands including Tubers and E.Y.C. will play along with many other acts including Propagandi, Against Me!, and maybe even Bad Brains. We are excited such a positive and inspiring event not only is going down so close to us, but is happening because of our friends. Thanks Ryan!
Merry New Year! 2009. This holiday my sister Erin made another treat from our past vegan maybe for the first time ever--galumkies (Polish stuffed cabbage). Followed by some vegan buckeyes Ashley made from Kelly's recipes. Yes! Solid Pony managed to play a show at the Present Moment Cafe while Lenny blew through town between semesters. I think we gently rocked it as well as we ever did. Landlord is releasing their new CD "Lifers" with us. LP by Houseplant, tape by PR3. Tape is out now, LP/CD very soon. They just embarked on a nice sized tour. Look at the dates on our Shows page since they are likely headed your way in the next month. Be seeing you!
Tubers will play a few shows with American Tourist. We plan on recording for a 12" 45 at Rob McGregor's Goldentone studio in February, and then taking a west coast trip in April as well. I have some copies of the Jammy Dodgers/Nervous Dogs 'Special Fest Fuck up Split 7"'. If you want one get in touch, or go to No Idea. Street Eaters, wonderful new friends from the west coast mit member of Triclops!, will be working with us to release some sort of ep very soon.
Also just heard most of the songs to be on the Old Growth/12XU split 7". 12XU are friends from france, some of whom also play in Daïtro.
The 7" will also be released in Europe by Purepainsugar. Old Growth is headed down the west coast in December.
That's all for now!
Hey, It's me! Rich!
Well Webmaster Erin Tobey has just given me moderate amounts of power to update this here site. Thanks Erin! Expect more up to date news and infos.
Speaking of Erin, her band Pink Razors just released their new LP "Leave Alive" on Erin and Jeff's very own brand new label House Plant Records!
I just got back from Fest 7 and had a wonderful time seeing friends I rarely am able to see. While playing with Tubers I looked out to everyone watching, many whom have influenced me over the years, and was happy they wanted to be there with us. Thanks for making it everyone. Tubers also played with Matt Sweeting as fourth Tuber for the first time. We are all excited it finally happened and are stoked to write new Tubers songs with him. Nervous Dogs was another highlight even as Ashley and I watched from outside as Jacob rocked it in the front row. The 7" is coming in December, but in the meantime there is now a happy accident of a release resulting from a record plant mistake on a rush job of the Jammy Dodgers 7". What came to No Idea's door was one side of the Dodgers and one side of the Dogs' 7"s on one record. So now you have a limited split release (200?) of Jammy Dodgers/Nervous Dogs 'Special Fest Fuck up Split 7"'. More news on the availability of that soon. Matty Pop Chart was great to see and eat Chopsticks with. Many bands I was sad to miss including Casssette, Alligator, Good Luck, Die Hoffnung and on and on.
Tubers & Alligator on Tour in August!
Just a quick post to tell everyone that Tubers and Alligator (Jeff and Jacob from Tubers' other band) are touring together in the southeast in early August. Dates posted on Shows page.
New Year News
Alright! Exciting work for us Bako-wise. Lenny has
built his own studio and dubbed himself
engineer/mastererer. So far he has recorded Tubers,
Solid Pony, and Deep And Holy Sea. More Tubers and
Pony in the future as well as Verde. I am struggling
with computers and laying out the new Solid Pony CD/LP
and a few ads. What could be next for us to tackle?
One day we will cut our own albums and build our own
guitars... not unlike Dead Moon?
Out now: Matty Pop Chart "Everyone Does Everything"
LP and Solid Pony "Collar to Cuff" CD! Also, Bako
Comp CD - A Bakery Outlet Sampler: track from each
bako-release and a few from future and/or hopeful
bako-releases under one roof. I am happy to listen to
all these songs compiled from people I truly love and
look to for aural inspiration. Mastered by our own
lenny and made to look visually beautiful by musician,
artist, webmaster, friend Erin Tobey. And it is cheap
to free if you see us at a show! -Rich
Late Summer News
Hallo! Just back from Europe tour when some
Bako-friends, Matty Pop Chart & Des_Ark, stopped for a
short while here in St. Augustine to play and do some
bodysurfing. Spending time with them stoked me to be
a part of my friends' music somehow. Matty's LP
"Everyone Does Everything" is just about done. Out
Now are Tubers "Shell Out" CD and Environmental Youth
Crunch "Let's Ride" CD. Tubers LP will be done in a handful
of weeks. Also a new Tubers organic cotton shirt and
button this time drawn by sean mahan and designed by
Erin Tobey illustrating that crucial North Shore
instruction given to Rick by Turtle: "When the wave
breaks here, don't be there, or you're gonna get
drilled. .. " Still in the works are Solid Pony
CD/LP, Reactionary 3 CD, Cassette LP, Old Growth "?"
CD/LP, Twelve Hour Turn "Expense of Flight" CD,
Bako-CD sampler, and Emperor X CD/Book.
Tschüsssssieeee! - Rich
Hallo everyone. Tubers "Shell Out" CD/LP is almost birthed. A few more steps were taken into our own hands on this one - recorded by our own Lenny Rutland at his house and mastered by friend Alan Mills here in St. Augustine. Should be done by the time we set out for tour in Europe with our great friends and new "label mates" Environmental Youth Crunch. Their first full length "Let's Ride" will be finished just in time for tour as well. It saddens us all that Solid Pony will not be able to ride as originally planned, but will surely see many other tours in the future. We will also have new Tubers shirts and buttons for the trip. Still on deck and on their way: Reactionary 3 CD, Solid Pony CD/LP, Matty Pop Chart LP, 12 Hour Turn "Expense of Flight" CD, Emperor X Cd, and Bako-sampler CD. Soon! - Rich
Well, the old Webmaster has finally dusted off her laptop to bring you the newest-but-no-longer-brand-new news from the Bakery HQ. We are pleased to finally have the Old Growth / Science of Yabra Split 7" added to the catalog, as well as Ten Volt Shock's new full-length 6 NULL 3. You can also plan for your European Summer Vacation by looking at Tubers and Solid Pony's tour dates. On deck in the coming months: new records from Tubers, Solid Pony and Cassette, a few new faces in the catalog (Emperor X, Reactionary 3, Environmental Youth Crunch, Matty Pop Chart) and a long-awaited repress from Twelve Hour Turn.
Hallo! I've just finished baking maybe the first ever vegan, organic kolacckis- an old polish treat my mom used to make when i was a child. Ten Volt Shock "6null3" cd is done! Their second proper album, with different artwork from the LP, brings forward, angular punk rock without pretense from freiburg, germany. Soon will have split 7" with Science of Yabra and Old Growth. Also in the works is Solid Pony cd/lp "to the sea", a Bako-compilation sampler, Twelve Hour Turn collection cd titled "the expense of flight" and Emperor X cd/book. Thats all for now!
Beginning-of-the Year Baking
Here were are in October already, and that means "everyone's favorite holiday" is around the corner: THE FEST V! Come see The Beat Buttons, Solid Pony, Erin Tobey, Tubers, Verde and many more in Gainesville on October 27-29. Please forgive us for indirectly advertising for Pabst Blue Ribbon on our website!
Tubers/Solid Pony Yurp tour was zupa! Danke, Ingo! Sean Mahan's (artist for 12 Hour Turn, Floor, Solid Pony, Beat Buttons, etc) "Verde" cd is here after a long labor; you can smell it permeating the whole bakery house... or it might be the pineapple empanadas he and Kelly made the other night. Also very close to finished is a 8.5x11 print of one of my favorites of his, so now you won't have to drop any serious dough to put some of his artwork on your wall. Both were ready for his art show in Brooklyn September 30. Also in the works is a split 7" by Old Growth and Science of Yabra. This is also a split release between Bakery and Dead Tank Records. Ten Volt Shock's second LP "6null3" has also arrived, and we will begin work on the CD very soon as well. We are very excited to be a part of releasing this and working with Xmist. Jacksonville native Chad Metheny aka Emperor X is about to record 40 or so songs telling a story of a fictional town in California which will be released on several CDs by several labels, including his own Discos Mariscos. We will release one, too. Chad has also been recording Solid Pony's second album this fall. Tubers buttons and organic cotton tubers shirts are done. Tschuss!
Tubers and Solid Pony Go To Yurp
As we speak, Rich, Lenny, Jacob and Jeff are packing their backpacks to prepare for a month and a half long tour of Europe. Solid Pony will be playing shows with Tubers from June 1 - June 18; Tubers will go the rest alone. Look to the Shows page to find out which Bavarian hamlet is closest to your town. Thanks very much to Ingo and The Company With the Golden Arm for booking and organizing. (Look at the Tubers tour poster, designed by Erin Tobey, featuring artwork by Rose Marie Homer Diem.)
Our newest release, Verde's The Undeserved Current CD, will be at the plant soon. Verde is the recording project of beloved Florida artist Sean Mahan (most well-known for making album art for such bands as Twelve Hour Turn, Floor and others). Expect this to be ready by mid-June. Full-color prints by Sean Mahan and Bloomington artist Erin Tobey will also become available during the summer. Keep it real, boiii.
Des Ark, Beat Buttons & Old Growth in!
Several things that we'd been waiting on have finally come in: Des Ark LPs, Beat Buttons LPs, and CDs and LPs for Old Growth. These are all available from the No Idea and Dead Tank websites.
Our humble webmaster has finally taken the initiave to figure out what the deal was with several gliches on the site. Hopefully everything is lining up right and visible and not looking stupid, even if you're running Internet Explorer. Very sorry for taking so long to get our act together.
Buttons & T-Shirts!
We have some new arrivals in our catalog - sweet, sweet Ts and one-inch buttons. Wear your Bakery Outlet allegiance with pride! At last check, they were not yet available from the No Idea distro, but they should be and thus will be soon.
Remember the Fest? That was really fun.
Moving the Units
The wait is finally over for the new full-length album from Portland's Old Growth! We have the CDs and LPs ready to be shipped priority mail to your mailbox. No Idea should have them in stock shortly. Check back soon for Old Growth MP3s.
Erin Tobey, Solid Pony and Tubers are all ready to hit the road, so keep your eyes peeled!
Hey, don't forget about THE FEST 4. The tickets are flying off the shelves and Tony Baloney said we can't pretend you're our roadies.
The Autumn at the Bakery
We are plugging away here in the Bako kitchen, preparing many sweet audio treats to get the jump on your adult-onset diabetes. We now feature MP3s for nearly all the Bakery bands, found on the band and album sites. We are also working on a collaborative comp with No Idea Records featuring songs from new Bako and No Idea releases. Look for this in the next few months! In the near future you can also look forward to new t-shirts, grocery bags, buttons, prints by Sean Mahan and other surprises.
The schedule for THE FEST 4 is finalized and up on their website. We know there are a million of your favorite bands that you want to see, but try to make time for the Beat Buttons, Solid Pony, Tubers, Cassette and Erin Tobey.
We're Working On It
Bakery HQ is busy preparing its upcoming releases and the website is slowly coming into its own. Continued apologies for stuff looking weird or images being missing. We're working on browser compatibility and other things (sorry, Internet Explorer users). MP3s coming very soon!
Also! Many Bakery Outlet bands are playing the much-anticipated FEST 4 in Gainesville on November 18, 19 & 20. One thousand bands are playing, including the Beat Buttons, Tubers, Solid Pony, Erin Tobey & Cassette. Get your tickets in advance, dude, because things are gonna get CROWDED.
New Website! Obviously!
As you can see, Bakery Outlet has a new face to show the internet community. We asked our good friend
and Bakery Outlet denizen Erin Tobey to usher us into the twenty-first century with a digital make-over, and
after many years of toil she has finally finished. Thank you, Erin! May your good work be rewarded with endless cookies and coffee at the internet cafe. Please excuse us for the next few days while we work out the bugs and get everything ship shape.
