San Pedro knuckleheads made some GREAT songs that I recorded here at Clown Sound. That snowballed into yours truly playing keyboards and wanting to put out an album out. The album turned awesome and I can’t wait for it to surface Aug 6th!

“Some pretty lame news here. We had to cancel our upcoming Toys That Kill Europe tour due to a detached retina in my right eye. When the doctor diagnosed me last week she rushed me into the retina specialist for emergency surgery that same day. I told them I was going to Europe next wednesday and they both replied with “No your not! If you get on a plane you will lose your eye!”. It felt like a knife through my skull. I feel some horrible emptiness inside when canceling shows but this takes the cake. It’s gonna be tough to imagine where we should be every givin night for the next month. The great shows we are missing and the fun times that should be having. I’ll have my right eye to keep me company at least. It’s so hard to get all of us,due to work schedules, to go to Europe and we were seconds away. Bad timing to say the least. They said I was lucky to not be blind in that eye already so there is some positives here but still…shit! Very sincere apologies to every promoter who booked a show and especially Benny & Fanski/Klownhouse for booking the tour and the Rockstar Records/Aachen crew for their help overseas. We will try to make it up asap!” -Todd C.
Update:April 2014 will is the planned makeup time.
Lotta Lenguas Largas news! First off,they are in the studio now finishing their follow up to 2011′s awesome S/T debut. Great songs,still morphing. You don’t know what to expect is what you can expect!
To top that off, Doug M of Built To Spill fame asked Lenguas to play shows with them! Starting off with playing right before BTS headline night at The Treefort Music Fest in Boise.
Also their Clown Sound 7″ got turned in and that series is about to pop! Lenguas Largas is volume 2. Landlord is volume 1.
Speaking of Landlord. Will and Chris,along with Patrick of Hot New Mexicans, started Purple 7. Great band! They are hitting the road. Check out the dates!
Achtung horizon viewers! Also in the works for 2013: Dwarves-reissue LP’s, Federation x LP, Japanther LP, The Arrivals LP (reissue of GNW), The Bananas-Nautical R n R LP, Clown Sound series inauguration, and Pedro Locals Black Sparrow Press and Benny The Jet Rodriguez! um, AND MORE!!!
The 6th Screeching Weasel studio album rises from the dead again! Some would consider this the second “last” Screeching Weasel album. Riverdales we’re right around the corner at this point so it makes sense that this album is even more Ramones-inspired than the last. Mike Dirnt ( Green Day ) filled in Vapid’s shoes, for this album, after his departure. Recut for the best vinyl pleasure by Lucky Lacquers and the best SW art rework to date by Riccardo Bucchioni!!
Deluxe gatefold jacket & 4 limited vinyl colors! BUY NOW!
Summer Vacation came into Clown Sound to track their side. Their best stuff yet, in my opinion! While San Jose’s Hard Girls (Members of Classics Of Love, Shinobu and Pteradon) contribute one great song,rounding out a damn fine split. All for you!
