Refry Records

Waiting for my driver to update so I can continue wasting my life playing vid'ja games, I thought I'd check out the new arrivals on Bandcamp. I came across this label Refry Records, out of California, which I've never heard of, and I see my cool Facebook friends aren't following them so I think I'm on to something here. Here's a few of their recent releases. Great lo-fi, trashy garage punk, get hep: 8 by 9 by The LindasLast Dance With Mary Jane (Cuz I'm Bustin' Dope Smokers) by Fernando & The Teenage NarcsOne Man's Trash by VAGUESSEuropean Eyes by Les PostersTheir debut vinyl release: Kill Helmet 7" by Kill Helmet Follow Refry Records on Facebook, and check out the rest of their releases on Bandcamp here.

and rock'n'roll of all stripes, mostly new stuff from this year on bandcamp. Listen/dl from the embed

Bandcamp Remains Cool

I've said before, when I first started this blog back in 2012, I wanted it to be like dear, departed Crud Crud - strictly obscure 45s and singles. Bandcamp had been founded in 2007, but, per Wikipedia, it didn't see it's rise in popularity until 2010-2011, and I wasn't a month into the blog before I was sharing Bandcamp links. That was followed by what were probably months of me sharing songs from Bandcamp and feeling guilty that I wasn't sticking to the original CNQ directive of only posting about obscure vinyl, but finally I got over that. Bandcamp is really cool. I've always preferred it to Soundcloud.
