I figured that the first proper post that I make on here should be something that nicely encompasses my attitude regarding music and stuff. I will be posting some reviews and critiques and things in the (hopefully not-too-distant) future, but I thought I’d begin with something positive in light of…

Our friend Laura started up this really rad blog. Go and check it out!

Hello friends!I’m sure you’ve all seen the previous update that Mr Ash Victim posted earlier and I felt that maybe I should follow up with a little hello and an introduction to who I am and what my intentions are (all honest I swear).For the most part I play in various of the bands that we support at Live As You Make it UP and along with the wonderful AnaSera Chambers provide some of the artwork. Above is a doodle I made of Ash Victim from waaaay back in the glorious, heady days of the Summer of the Illegal Subletting (which later got used in a small, one edition handmade zine) - and really what I’m trying to get at is that Ash and I are going to start visually bombarding you with all sorts of updates about the distro, some articles, zines, stickers and patches and whatever else our filthy DIY hands can busy ourselves with!So keep your peepers peeled and in the word of Ash Victim himself: party sausage.Sara

Hello friends!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the previous update that Mr Ash Victim posted earlier and I felt that maybe I should follow up with a little hello and an introduction to who I am and what my intentions are (all honest I swear).

So keep your peepers peeled and in the word of Ash Victim himself: party sausage.

Update: Let’s start over and do this better.

Okay, so I’ve been pretty shitty at running this distro in general. Been terrible at taking the CDs out to shows and stuff because I’m always travelling around and it’s heavy to carry etc. Just been bad at keeping it stocked with stuff as well but for now I’m at least going to try and keep up a better web presence, post things that my creative friends are up to etc. 

For starters I’ve got Sara from Damsel, Let’s Go Nowhere and now Block Fort to join this blog so we can keep it more active and stuff. 

Here’s Sara’s latest band Block Fort. They’ve just released this new EP of 3 bloody amazing tracks. http://blockfort.bandcamp.com/ I highly recommend you check it out. 

Cheers,

Ash.
