    Going to sleep until 2011

    This post makes me sad but it is necessary.

    I am too busy right now to do FNR any justice. Between my last semester of school, interning at Marvel, traveling between NYC and New Paltz multiple times a week, Ghost Mall, Cosmo Memory  and work, I might explode. I just don't have the time to dedicate to this right now. That being said, I do have some big ideas and FNR will be reincarnated in 2011 as something (hopefully) bigger and better.

    So see you in 2011.

    This Town is Big Enough For The Both of Us

    Despite my love for Sparks and their rousing tune "This Town Ain't Big Enough For the Both of Us" ( which is appropriately but surprisingly used in Kick-Ass), I could not be happier to introduce another New Paltz-based record label to you.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Responsible Records.
    This little cassette label has their wares available at shows, at local New Paltz record store Rhino Records and for order on their website. Although I have nothing to do with them, I am very happy to see another outlet for artists open up in New Paltz.

    In closing, Friendly Neighborhood <3s Responsible Recs.

    FNR Update #12

    It has been slow goings here at FNR HQ. There has been a severe lack of updates etc.Here I am to rectify the situation.

    -Official release for GHOST MALL's "Goons" EP will be sometime in the first week of August. Tapes, 12" and digital release on iTunes. We'll also have it for free here on FNR for a bit.

    -Friendly Neighborhood favorites SUNSHOWER ORPHANS have a 12" coming out in August. It is called "From the Fire Escapes." One of the tracks is "Polly Ana" which we put out here!

    Other than that, look forward to more updates. The next release is on the schedule on your right.

    So long.

    Ken Griffey Junior burns down Kitty City.

    A wonderful little documentation of just what happens when you mash testosterone with Star Wars, guitars with lightsabers and punk rock with nerds. This is Ken Griffey Junior. They play Star Wars Hardcore.

    There will be blood in the Sarlac pit.

    FNR008 - Shot Not - There's Still Time

    Out of the ashes of The Sweaters/WireHangovers/WhateverYouWannaCallThem comes another band that is probably a little bit better, SHOT NOT. This is Long Island punk. Running the gamut between songs that sound kinda like Cheap Girls and some that sound like more straight-up pop-punk, this is a summer EP. It's for drives around the block to 7-11 with your friends when all you need is just a fucking Slurpee and you'll be alright.
