Greetings once again all massive and crew from

- The big news this week is that we are super excited and proud to announce the latest release on the Stubborn Records label. The Hub City Stompers new "Ska Ska Black Sheep" full length CD, featuring 6 brand new tunes and 6 wicked dubs and versions of HCS classics, is in stock now!

- The new Sic & Mad CD "Songs for the Revolution" is also in-stock now! If you don't know yet, Sic & Mad is a punk/garage/psychedelic/reggae band featuring The Slackers' rhythm section of Vic Ruggiero, Marcus Geard and Ara Babajian (also of Leftover Crack). Fronted by the mysteriously charming and disarming "Happy," Sic & Mad was actually Ruggiero's first band. This CD was also made at Version City and features a plethora of incredible guest appearances. If you missed the boat on the pre-sale, not to worry, you can still get hooked up with the Sic & Mad gift pack and save $6!

- The King Django "Avenue A" 10" vinyl 4-song EP has been fraught with delays but we actually held the labels in our hands last weekend. We're still offering it at the pre-sale discount but time is definitely running out before the price goes up.

- Once again, exclusively for members of this e-mail list, we are proud to announce the SECRET MEMBERS-ONLY SALE #6. We just got in some awesome vinyl from Germany (including the likes of the Skatalites, Dr Ring Ding, Rico, Laurel Aitken and others) as well as a nice batch of CDs from Japan that we're giving you first crack at. Of course we're also offering deep discounts on loads of other CDs, t-shirts and vinyl, so have a look at and snatch up some of the goodies before they're all gone!

- And last but not least, if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, definitely have a listen to the Version City Podcast (now up to Episode 7) at for loads of sneak previews, new music, old music, good information and good old down-home smack-talk!
