We were taking an inventory here at Goodfriends world head quarters before Fake Problems hit the road again and discovered a few boxes of records that we thought we had sold out of quite a while ago. So in short we have like 15, Frank Turner “Campfire Punk Rock” 10″ , in the black and yellow swirl left. Also we found a box of the Look Mexico “This is Animal Music” LP’s, with a black and cream A/B side. Both really good records and these are definitely the coolest looking of the pressings. I also found a box of tour posters from Fake Problems previous tours with the likes of Against Me, The River Boat Gamblers, “Cheese Fest ” from the epic summer tour of ‘07 with Look Mexico and many more as well that i will be throwing in with all the orders. So if you wanna get your hands on any of these rare records, just go to the webstore and order them as you normally would but when it gets to the part of the checkout that asks if you want to write a note to attach with the order just type in swirl and i’ll make sure you get one. I will also make another post letting everyone know when they are sold out. Also on the selling out of records note… there are only like 100 Fake Problems picture discs left, so if you want one of these you better get one now because once they are gone they are gone forever! and ever!
And go buy Fake Problems new record ” It’s Great To Be Alive” out TODAY on Sideone Dummy Records! @ www.sideonedummy.com!
Today we got in the new 7″ from Broken Gold. It sounds fucking awesome and looks just as good as it sounds. heres some pics!

2 song EP. The a side contains the song “Snow Day” , and the b side holds the driving ” Not Into This”. The record comes with a free digital down load card with both tracks. This record is awesome and I cant wait for people to hear this band. Really good stuff to come for sure.
So go over to the webstore and pick one up!! PARTY HARDY MARTY!
The webstore is back up and live again, so anyone that wants to get their hands on one of the totally awesome FP picture discs we still have about 100 left. You better act fast though, they will be going quickly. I just got word today that our next release from Broken Gold, their debut 7″, was shipped this week. That means we will be getting it next week and will have it up for sale shortly there after. The record was pressed on clear blue, yellow, and a blue and yellow splatter and it includes a free digital download. The artwork was done by horsebites and it rules. I’m really excited about this band and this record as they really are our Goodfriends and some of the nicest most rockin dudes on the planet. So get back to the webstore when you can and be looking for this totally awesome 7” sometime next weekish!
If anyone has tried to place and order in the last 24 hours and it hasnt worked, its because our web host took our webstore offline. They wont put the site up back live until they receive confirmation that our customers received their merchandise and that we are not a scam. In the mean time you can head over to www.vinylcollective.com and get all the records in our catalog from our good friends over there. I apologize to anyone who tried to order anything but we should have it up and running soon. These internet folks are just a little hard to deal with……..nerds.
PS- Keep yours eyes open for awesome Holiday specials when we get the webstore back up. TEST PRESSES, OUT OF PRINT COLORS, ALL KINDS OF CRAZY FUCKING SHIT !
pps.- people that run the internet blow.
Totally awesome things happening on the Good Friends home front! First off the 500 Miles to Memphis record “Sunshine in a Shot Glass” should ship from the plant either this week or next week which means, you could be one of the lucky S.O.B’s spinning one of your very own within the next month! So get excited. If anyone hasn’t checked these guys out yet you should.
Sunshine in A Shot Glass was one of my favorite records of last year. Call your friends (the fun ones), invite them over, put that record on, and get drunk. I swear you will have a good time.
Also leaving for its trip to the presses this week is the 7″ ep from Austin’s very own Broken Gold. As well as the highly anticipated Evel Kinevel 12″ picture disc, from the most rockin dudes on the planet, Fake Problems. The art work for the Broken Gold record was done by Horsebites, and the Evel art was done by Bridey Bowen. Check em both out below.
So in conclusion, everyone should start saving up their loot and get ready to hit the Good Friends Records webstore very soon. Which should be up and running smoothly except Dougal McKorkle skipped town again. But I’m sure it will be firing on all cylinders by the time next week rolls around. So this was my first website blog post or whatever it is and i feel like it went pretty well. And it’s 9/11 so what a great time to try something new, right?….AMERICA!!!
Born in the USA is playing at my place, What are you doin??
