PRANK SCREWS THE POOCH, MARTYRDOD "SEKT"!
It's been a busy Spring to summer at PRANK HQ with a veritible deluge of releases in progress and /or the way- ASTA KASK "Aldrig En"LP, ASTA KASK " En For Alla, Ingen for nan" LP, ASTA KASK " MED IS I MAGEN" LP, BORN UGLIES 7", NO STATIK 7", IRON LUNG " SEXLESS/ NO SEX" re-press, IRON LUNG " LIFE.IRON LUNG.DEATH" LP Re-PRESS, HIS HERO IS GONE "15 COUNTS OF ARSON" LP re-press, HIS HERO IS GONE " MONUMENTS TO THIEVES" LP re-press, ASTA KASK 5X 7" BOX SET, SMASH DETOX 7", BGK BENEFIT T-SHIRT + we opened the pop up spot at CHAOS IN TEJAS and have been promoting tours for ASTA KASK, MARTYRDOD and more.....but in this chaos and faced with the month long illness that always seems to be the lead up to "Chaos in Tejas", the one thing that slipped through the cracks was getting the U.S. Press of MARTYRDÖD's "SEKT" finished for their short West Coast tour with NO STATIK that that begins this weekend.
Jens of MARTYRDÖD is an old friend from the mighty SUNDAY MORNING EINSTEINS and Anton From S.M.E. and ACURSED also now plays in MARTYRDÖD, and I feel terrible that Prank's fallen down on the job, and while this realization made for a pretty bleak week, I realized a Negative can easily become a positive If I do what I do best, which is get out of the car and push.
And Luckily , This remastered edition, mastered by Frank Boltz in Germany and Cut to Lacquers here in the U.S. by George Horn is almost finished! Thanks to our friends at MONOLITH PRESS We will have snazzy tour only editions set to go for their show in SF on Tuesday with a deluxe two color silk screened limited edition sleeve on chipboard, with a lyric insert and a special vinyl color edition pressed up extra quick by our friends at BILL SMITH CUSTOM RECORDS. So folks in the Bay area and Southern California can pick these up at the shows next week.
And for everyone else, From Now Until The tour's end - or until Copies run out, I am offering Copies of this limited edition version of SEKT on Vinyl by mailorder delivered to your doorstep for $16.00 to prankrec@ mindspring.com and everything outside of postage and fees will help the band get from point A TO B and back to their native Sweden! These will ship next week. Europeans can pick up the record through LA FAMILIA and a regular edition will be available shortly.
Thanks for the support and be sure to catch them Live this week!!!
