Why is the World in Love again? Why are We Marching Hand in Hand?

January 11, 2012

Ok anyone who knows me personally knows that I’m a  HUGE life long TMBG fan.  I spent the better part of my youth going to their shows, and driving around the state listening to all of the albums on cassette in my friend Dave’s car. They were responsible for me falling in love with underground music, and were the soundtrack for an absolutely amazing time in my life, and I met so many friends because of them. If there ever was a dream project for us to be involved with, it would be this….. So you can imagine how excited we are to release, for the first time ever on vinyl.. the first two full band TMBG records “John Henry” and “Factory Showroom”.  Expect to see Factory Showroom available in March, and John Henry sometime this summer!!!!
