NEW RELEASE FROM: DON HOWLAND, A BURNING BUS + MORE! May 07 2020
We hope everyone is staying safe and well during this time of unprecedented weirdness. Despite the fact that most everything is closed down right now, we’re still making records. When things start to reopen we’ll have some pretty amazing stuff to announce but right now we have these awesome new releases ready to order:
We’re proud to announce the new solo album by Don Howland. Don’s been pursuing his brand of scuzzy roots rock for over a quarter of a century, first as a member of the Columbus’ beloved Gibson Bros and later as the main man in the Bassholes. His music is a raw convergence of country blues, ’76 punk and lo-fi garage. Don was one of the original flagship artists for In The Red and we’re happy to be working with him again. Don’s been a crucial figure in underground music for several decades and is of American underground’s true originals. Limited edition on splatter vinyl.
Another Don Howland-related album! That’s right, we’re putting out two albums by the man at the same time! That’s how much we love him and his music. This full length is by his now defunct five piece band Burning Bus. The band released two 7”s earlier this decade and recorded this album which has laid dormant until now. While Don’s solo work and the Bassholes tend to be stripped-down, terrible-kicking affairs, Burning Bus is a full throttle three guitar and bass attack. It’s much noisier and more brutal than anything else he’s done. Fans of Pussy Galore will want to take note. Limited edition on splatter vinyl.
Also in from our pals at Spacecase Records we have these awesome new titles:
Rubber Blanket is a new group featuring Brad Eberhard and Jun Ohnuki of Wounded Lion and The Intelligence’s Lars Finberg. This is their debut LP. For fans of The Screamers, Fast Product-era Human League, and The Better Beatles. Limited to 500 copies.

Also, we’re now shipping Alice Bag’s awesome Sister Dynamite album. Flame color vinyl is going fast!
