Q&A with Flesh And Bone Design - Rob Castellon / Wiretap Records Posted 25 Jan 2017

I met Brian from Flesh and Bone Design online a few years ago through his amazing design work and the label he was running at the time. He's done a bunch of design work for me for Wiretap. He recently asked me to answer a few questions for Flesh & Bone Design's Q/A blog. We talk about how Wiretap Records began, the future of radio, CA punk rock, young vs. old DIY culture, & more! Thanks to Brian for asking me to participate. Go follow Flesh And Bone. He's doing some amazing design work. Read the whole feature here!

Kamikaze Girls new music video for 'Ladyfuzz' remind us all It's OK To Be Sad Posted 09 Aug 2016

Kamikaze Girls' pressing of their new EP "Sad" is now available to Pre-Order on limited Cassette Tape. The cassette is limited to 150x copies on Blue Tint. Go pick it up. If you're looking to grab the 12" Vinyl, visit our buds at Bearded Punk Records. The band also just premiered a new music video for the 2nd track off the EP called "Ladyfuzz". The subject is heavy, but we admire the duo's courage to use music as a means to continue to challenge attitudes and taboos surrounding mental health. Mental Health issues are a global issue. The video was shot in singer/guitarist Lucinda Livingstone's childhood bedroom and surrounding area up North in the UK, where she grew up before moving to Leeds when she was 16.

“It still looks just like it was when I left it. Loads of old band merch, a LOT of Michael Jackson memorabilia, records and a bunch of stuff that I can’t really have with me at the moment. With Conor knowing the meaning behind the song – and obviously standing by me as a friend when I wasn’t well at the time – we kind of just wanted to tell it how it was. Not the happiest of songs, or videos, but it is what it is.”

“Since then I have used the term ‘Ladyfuzz’ as something positive. I curate a zine with a bunch of contributors from all over the world. We put out issues every few months and celebrate female artists and musicians. I feel good now that something good came out of it.” - From Punktastic

Watch the video for ‘Ladyfuzz’ below and share with anyone you think could use some encouragement. "Sad" is out September 2nd via Bearded Punk and Wiretap Records.

Thanks to Punktastic for streaming the video today.
