Have you ever heard of Tummy Rock Records, a small DIY label from Missoula, MT now located in Bellingham, WA? The label is run by musician, all ages proponent and all-around super nice guy, Tyson Ballew. Originally specializing in cassette tapes, CDs and digital tracks, Tummy Rock was finally able to put out its very first vinyl record this year thanks to a KickStarter campaign and around 40 very groovy individuals. The Shitty Weekend / King Elephant Split 7” marks the label’s 39th release and is now available through the K Mail Order Department!
King Elephant is an awesome band from Missoula, MT. They play fast, melodic punk. Joey Running Crane has been busting out anthemic gems since his first band Goddammitboyhowdy hit the scene over four years ago.
Shitty Weekend is a gang of rapscallion punks from Portland, OR, featuring members of The Taxpayers. Fronted by Andrew Link, the band plays an eclectic brand of punk rock. Shitty Weekend is a gang of really sweet, hard workers. This 7” is their debut recording and their LP is coming out soon on Secret Pennies Records.
Nikki McClure has done it again with another beautiful and vibrant papercut calendar! Each image in this 12 month calendar is an original work of art Nikki hand cut from a single piece of black paper.
These 12 x 12 inch calendars are printed on acid-free paper with soy ink right here in Olympia, Washington by union-labor. Nikki’s calendars have become a staple in kitchens, offices and schools. They features strong images of everyday life, each with a powerful verb that inspires action.
This year’s verbs and phrases are: Vibrate, Honor, Delegate, Matter, Lunch, Befriend, Ache, Inhabit, Chance, Save, Agree and Stay.
And speaking of Nikki, did you know she had two 7” singles out on K back in the day? And we still have a few copies of them left! Check out the rather different but still super rad artwork on Godzilla and Hope and Pray, and preview a couple of the tracks in the K Mail Order Department!
