Q: So, you want to start a record label?
A: YES, because I hate my money and want to do something that’ll be fun. With AST RECORDS I am now starting my own imprint label:
LITERALLY FIGURATIVE RECORDS
I am gonna put out the stuff I like in the hopes that other people will too. Also, to maybe shed some light on some comics and bands that I really dig that people may not know about. This is a comedy label, this is a music label, this is probably some weird vanity project. Fuck it, though.
What’s in store for releases?
- -Vinyl of NICK YOUSSEF’S DEBUT ALBUM “STOP NOT OWNING THIS”
- -THE DEBUT 7” RECORD OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NEW LA COMEDIANS “PAIGE WELDON”
- -The first LP from the legendary MATT DWYER
And this is the fun one, a split 7” series with a comic on one side and band they are friends with on the other called:
THE MUTUAL APPRECIATION SOCIETY!
Releases in this continuing series to include…
- Sean O’connor / Upset
- Matt Mira / Jenny Owen Youngs
- Alex Hooper / FARTBARF
- Wil Wheaton / Nerf Herder
- Kyle Clark / Chris Ferren (from Fake Problems)
- Jonah Ray (that’s me!) / Mikal Cronin
- Powerviolence / Powerviolence
- Rhea Butcher / G.S. Schray
Jonah’s starting a rad record label and I CAN’T WAIT for these fucking awesome releases he’s got lined up!!
