That's right, we're putting out "Muscle Pop" on CD. CD's are a dead format - trust me, I know this… but it's going to be damn cool regardless. They will be ready for the tour with THE HIVES, so look out for them! I'll add them to the website soon!

The Weird Party 7" and The Best 7" are going to be out soon! Just waiting for the vinyl to be pressed! Can't wait!! Along with these releases, I'll be launching the new Twistworthy Records webstore as well. SOON!

Lots of news happening here at Twistworthy HQ. I'm pleased to announce TWO new records coming out soon on TWISTWORTHY:

TW-13: WEIRD PARTY - "The Secret Lives Of Men" 7" EP

Weird Party are from Houston, and feature ex-members of the FATAL FLYING GUILLOTEENS (Estrus Records, Frenchkiss Records, GSL Records) and SUGAR SHACK (Estrus Records). Much like a slap in the face, or a kick in the crotch, WEIRD PARTY came out of the gates with the charge of a thousand knaves, resulting in their debut self-released 7" last year. Imagine the terseness of the Guilloteens mixed with the rock'n roll riffage of the mighty Sugar Shack covered in a layer of heavy… and you might have something close to WEIRD PARTY. This four song EP won't disappoint.

TW-14: THE BEST - "Black Triangle" b/w "King Of The Underground" 45rpm

Max Vandever (of the FLESH LIGHTS) and Orville Neeley (of THE OBN III's/BAD SPORTS) started writing songs together sometime in 2011 as they discovered they both had song ideas that didn't necessarily fit into the "sound" of their other bands. This resulted in the formation of THE BEST! Musically, THE BEST is more straight up rock 'n roll than their other bands, incorporating the catchiest power-pop hooks with ferocious rock tunes. In addition to Vandever (vocals/guitar) and Neeley (vocals/bass), the members also include Jason (guitar, also from THE OBN III's) and Caleb (drums, from the BAD LOVERS) to round out the band.

I'm shooting for both of these records to be out around the March/April timeframe. Both of these first pressings will be limited to 300 copies! More info SOON!

January 9th, 2012:

First:

My dear friend Esme was murdered in her home after coming home from a NYE party here in Austin. It's been over a week ago and i'm still just as shocked and saddened by this as I was the second I heard the news. Her funeral is tomorrow in El Paso. Please donate any spare money to help her family pay for services and expenses here.

Second:

I just realized today that the frames on this very website have been out of whack for who knows how long, making the buttons be out of place and making the layout seem… well… just wrong. I just spent 3 hours fixing it, which leads me to the thought of that I would still REALLY love if someone wanted to design a new site for me. Get in touch.

And finally:

I am really, *REALLY* behind on my mail orders. If you have ordered anything in the last month or so, you haven't received it yet. I deeply apologize for this and will be catching up on everything tonight.

Thanks. Be decent to each other.

Green Day is playing a "secret" show in Austin tonight, and i've been asked to DJ! Tickets went on sale at noon and sold out in a matter of minutes. This is gonna be nuts. If anyone I know happens to get in, come say hello.
