    FN Records Update #9

    Hello all.

    There has been a flurry of activity round these parts lately. It is with great pleasure that I have revived this venture. Touring with Ghost Mall and the headaches and heartaches surrounding that adventure kind of forced me to put FNR on the back burner.

    But it's given me a lot of time to think about the future of this. As it stands right now, this is just a dumping ground for the music that me and my friends make. That's cool but I'm not satisfied. I love giving away music for free but I need to produce something real. I want something I can touch that when I find it in my attic 50 years from now I can pop in a tape deck (will they still have those in 2060?) or on a record player and remember that I was doing something when I was 21.

    Maybe that's a little selfish. Maybe it's not. You decide.

    The following news will have a little to do with my thoughts about the future of FNR.

    -There will be, at the very least, 2 cassette releases this summer. One will definitely be GHOST MALL's "Goons" EP. The other has not been decided yet. But I have some ideas.

    -SUNSHOWER ORPHANS is done recording! They will be releasing a six song EP on STATE CAPITAL RECORDS. 12" vinyl, baby. It's gonna be good.

    -Please welcome MILES NIGHTHAWK! and SHOT NOT to the Friendly Neighborhood family! We met Miles Nighthawk! down in North Carolina. I've totally slept on the floor of his bedroom. He makes funny, little songs about girls and love. You know, the important stuff. Shot Not features a former member of the Wire Hangovers and are chock full of some nice punk nuggets. I'm very excited to be releasing them both.

    -Very soon, Friendly Neighborhood will be involved in the next compilation from the CAKE LIFE COLLECTIVE. We are doing a split comp so expect some mostly previously unreleased tunes from a bunch of FNR bands and a gaggle of songs from bands involved with Cake Life.

    That's about it. So you know, physical releases. Think about them. Start saving up now.
