You're looking at the newly designed site. Gone are the days of struggling my way through attempting to write html manually (aka copying everything from other sites), fucked up borders, Paypal buttons that I cannot line up correctly to save my life, and everything else that was wrong with the old site. Finally.
I think people will like this and find it easy to use. Built in carts are nice, as well as almost every release being streamable from the store page - just find the store page of the record you want to hear and you can stream the whole thing before you buy.
I have a little work to do with the photo gallery and some other pages that i'll be adding... but I wanted to get things rolling here first, and those updates will follow.

WEIRD PARTY 7" OUT NOW!
We're having a little 7" Record Release party at SOUND EXCHANGE records in Houston TX on Thursday, June 28th. You should come, it will be a nice, intimate time. The opening act for this special show is none other than funny man, Ty Mahany.
The great blog Built On A Weak Spot was kind enough to review the record on their site. Look at what they had to say, below:
Texas rockers Weird Party return with their second single Secret Lives of Menon Twistworthy Records, which features four new cuts this time around. Comprising mostly of former members of Fatal Flying Guilloteens and Sugar Shack, it’s undoubtedly always going to be a bit of a raucous affair when dealing with Weird Party. I recall on their debut single that they seemed to represent themselves with a sound more so leaning towards the FFG days, which was fine and all because they were definitely awesome, but I worried about them moving forward as such. It’s good to hear the band basically coming together here and venturing down a much more bluesy type of garage-rock path, with a couple dirty sounding burners that definitely give the sense that if you were to be hanging with these guys on any given night that it would spell drunken trouble. The final track on the b-side “Birth Spasms” seems to be doing it for me, with an added sense of evil thanks to a sampled in maniacal laugh during parts of the song. Like the energy here, and I imagine seeing these dudes live would be a pretty good time.
Buy yourself a copy of the record here. Or two.
