Anthems Advertising

Ryan put together some awesome Man Is The Bastard/The Bastard Noise homage logos and fliers for the store (Note: my Slaughter Strike shirt, Ryan's The Bastard Noise shirt, and the fact that we're trying to sell a Blockade/Hatred Surge split in number two). There's talk of some fun homage logos/stickers/shirts for the store. Current ideas being tossed around are Swans, Nirvana, Autopsy, Fugazi, etc (as well as the MITB/TBN logo maybe becoming a shirt). I'll post more info when something's set in stone.

Ryan's putting a lot of work into this place and a lot on the line to make it happen. It'll be nice to have a shop in this area that sells truly independent and underground music.

Anthems Of The Undesirable

My close friend Ryan has been running a distro for years that I've been helping him with from time to time. He is now opening a physical record store in Hampton Roads. This will be the only place in our area where you can get truly underground, ugly tunes. We need this around here, badly. The location is at 617 35th St in Norfolk (upstairs at Kerouac Cafe). The grand opening is Saturday June 25th and the hours for the store will be 5-9 M-F and 12-9 Sat/Sun.

He is very much in need of additional funding to get things ready for opening day. If you would like to help, there are two ways:

1) Click here to view some ebay auctions that he has up for some rare/OOP records. All proceeds from these auctions will go to helping get the store off the ground.

2) Paypal a donation to anthems@theundesirable.net. All donations over $10 will recieve 15% off their entire purchase on opening day. The highest donation recieves an extremely rare 2nd press of Black Flag's "Nervous Breakdown" 7inch (and trust me, you can donate a lot less than you think and still win that 7inch).
