menthols-michigan works

The Menthols - Michigan Works LP out now!

Kalamazoo's favorite downer vibe shit rockers have their debut full length out at last. 9 songs inspired by Michigan's crumbling infrastructure, nautical naughtiness, lack of single females with jobs and psych meds, ass pockets of whiskey, fucking people fucking complaining, post-pocyclypse, fashions under $5, and that generally oppressive feeling you get in your 30s when you realize for the 35,000th time that shit sucks and this is all you've got. A hammered celebration of fucked up life. Best dudes! To say that they have an ear for The Cheater Slicks, Feedtime, The Kids, and Hawkwind goes with saying.

Recorded in Sean Barney's living room. Mixed up nice by Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit. Mark Richardson at Prairie Cat mastered it for vinyl. Pressed at United. Wormy cover art by Jeff The Snake. Silk-screening done by Ryan Brown at Goldfish Prints.

100 copies on green vinyl, mail-order only.This edition come with: a CD of the record, insert, plus more.
400 copies on black vinyl with beautiful silk-screened covers.

$14.00 in the United States
$15.00 in Canada and Mexico
$22.00 in the rest of the world

(UFO-005) THROBBIN URGES - Out For Blood 7" EP

The THROBBIN URGES aborted their Midland Dow Chemical, chromosomally damaged careers to bring their Napalm breath trash punk to shit all over Kalamazoo's supremely bland college rock wasteland.  Dude, bro.  This is their 3rd record following the split 7" with MATT COPPENS, and their LP on Dead Beat Records.  For fans of clowning on Clown Metal, thee olde tyme hockey, and casting charm.

A1: Out For Blood
A2: Iconoclast
B: Rich Daddie (the DICKS!)

100 copies on swell red bloody vinyl with penultimate MS Draw, working at the photo lab computer fucking bored as shit, cover. LIMIT 1 PER PERSON.  Look inside the record for a limited edition offer!  Limited Ed!!

$4.00 in the United States

(UFO-004) BLACK ORPHAN - Circuits 7" EP


BLACK ORPHAN is a secret group of hyper-evolved troglodytes creating spaced funeral music that makes Wilma Deering shed 25th century spandex with the swiftness. Internet rumor has it that a current member of The SPITS is positioned somewhere within the escape pod, hopefully close to the SCSI port. Sounds like a 1982 cable access version of Robinson Crusoe On Mars horrifically tape-traded in Betamax, amongst collectors, with decayed fidelity. The cover glows in the dark. GLOWS, BROS! Recorded using hardcore machine language.


A1: XX Spectrum
A2: Singularity
B1: Online
B2: Circuits

100 copies on fancy gold vinyl with glow in the dark FX.
300 copies real black. Covers glow in the dark as well.


(UFO-003) MENTHOLS - The Miracle Slip b/w Rats & Insects 7"

Menthols first record is finally coming to a close. From the ashes of Kalamazoo seminal fluid band, The Breaks, comes Sean Barney & Justin Miller's newest venture in banding. By enlisting The Wild Card, Dutch Hercules, and Clams drummer, Jeff The Snake, a true Kalamazoo super group was made. The Breaks were notorious for their non-vocal approach but here you get Sean's snarl and Dutch's bellow all up in your face. Compared to The Cheater Slicks and Hawkwind on the tussin, shit I even hear some Cosmic Psychos groove in there. Recorded very nicely by Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit, MI.


A: The Miracle Slip
B: Rats & Insects

100 copies soothing, cooling menthol green. Dutch Hercules did the covers and they are no joke and full of reality.
300 copies black vinyl. Jeff The Snake's awesome draw hands were all over this shit, trippin!


(UFO-002) MESA - Child Of Thunder b/w In Cold Blood 7"

Mesa's first record = good times.  Portage and Schoolcraft bros have teamed up in an arid, post-apocolyptic Michigan to bring the heavy tunage.  Obvious sonic comparisons would be Sabbath, Lizzy, or Witchfinder General.  Featuring members of Jihad, Nobody's Favorite, Quixote, '74 Jailbreak, Firesale, and Kiss Me Quick. Recorded by Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit, MI.


A: Child Of Thunder
B: In Cold Blood

100 copies red vinyl. Queen II inspired poses and mailorder only, get yours now!
300 copies black vinyl.  Matt did up the covers real nice like, black as fuck.

$4.00 in the United States

Plexi 3 7"
Legendary Wings 7"
a few more I'd Buy That For A Dollar 7" compilations (at least 2 more have tracks and or bands recording)
Drugs Dragons 7"
