HHBTM NEWS JULY 2009

First and foremost the HHBTM singles club will be finished this weekend, and will start shipping on Monday July 20th. The first 150 subscribers will ship next week. The rest of the subscribers will ship the following week. It’s taken forever but I really think this last round makes up for the wait. There are singles by Apples in Stereo / Patience Please, All Girl Summer Fun Band / Cars Can Be Blue, Of Montreal / James Husband, High Water Marks / Love Letter Band, and Always Red Society / Sunshine Fix. I’m printing the last sleeves this week and stuffing them in envelopes over the weekend. Thanks to everyone who has been so patient. I have 4 subscriptions left available so for those who haven’t subscriber you better hurry.

The label will be celebrating it’s 10th birthday this August in Athens, GA @ the Caledonia Lounge the 27th – 29th. Confirmed so far are Casper & the Cookies, Marshmallow Coast, Cars Can Be Blue, Bunnygrunt, the High Water Marks, the Lolligags, the Lovely Eggs, Red Pony Clock, Visitations, Afternoon Naps, Tunabunny, Oh Ok, Sex Robots and two more bands still to confirm. Passes and info will be posted at the end of the week.

Smokedog will be releasing their debut HHBTM cassette “Rogue Warrior” this Friday night at the Caledonia Lounge with Marshmallow Coast, Mystery of Two, and the Titans of Filth. Smokedog play fuzzed out psychedelic nuggets style rock and roll and this cassette clocks in at almost an hour. It will be available at the show, Wuxtry Records, and at the HHBTM website later in the week.

PRE-ORDERS
Bunnygrunt “Matt Harnish & Other Delights” was shipped off to the CD pressing plant today and to the vinyl pressing plant tomorrow. We are going to do a special pre-order to where you can get the regular CD or LP, or you can get the deluxe version that comes with your very own Bunnygrunt doll. (you don’t get to pick which member though, it’s totally random). You can also just preorder the entire cloth doll set. These will not ship until late August. The vinyl will come in a 2 color silkscreen sleeve. I’m only making 25 complete sets of dolls, one for each member of the band, and a few for the label, so that leaves just 15 full sets available.

Afternoon Naps “Parade” CD is at the plant now with the vinyl shipping later this week. We are doing the same deal as above you can pre-order the regular CD or LP, or you can get the deluxe version that comes with your very own Afternoon Naps pillow case. These will be ready to ship at the same time as the Bunnygrunt if you wanted to save some money shipping wise.

Lovely Eggs “If You Were Fruit” is just on CD and there isn’t any special edition stuff, but you can pre-order this as well. It will be ready to ship at the same time as the Bunnygrunt & Afternoon Naps.

I’ll be posting the CD artwork and a track from each release this week at the HHBTM blog. www.happyhappybirthdaytome.blogspot.com

There will also be some cover scans going up this week of the HHBTM singles club singles and even more announcements. Until then . Mike

hey mike, on the sleeve of the oM split it says the song is called "wet butcher's fist" but on the record itself it says "stark waif". do you know which one is correct?

the single is actually wet butcher's fist, the song title was confused during some emails between me, kevin, and polyvinyl. the sleeve has the correct title. i was going to put a sticker over the middles, but it looked bad, so it was better to leave the middle as is than have a lame looking sticker over it. mike
