RIP BPG

If you haven't noticed there haven't been any updates for a long time. I gave the duplicator to Crawf over at Planted Tapes (http://plantedtapes.blogspot.com/) so go support those guys. I'll be giving away the last of the BPG stock at the Sidewinder on December 20th for the Kevin Greenspon show.

It was a good run while it lasted. Thanks to all the bands and people that helped make this happen.

BPG006 - My First Band

Here's the low-down on our next release: a collaboration with Hot Congress! It will be out June 9th and there's already a release party scheduled.

About the Release:


What kind of music were your favorite Denver musicians making when they first started? My First Band answers that question. Spanning genres from pop-punk to minimalist electronica, this compilation is a slice of the Denver underground music scene's adolescence. Most striking is the degree to which some artists began with a developed sound and, conversely, how far some artists have evolved. The release is curated by Eric Peterson and is being released jointly by Buckingham Pie Group and Hot Congress.


The compilation will be released on limited edition cassette and digital download on June 9th. A release party will be held (fittingly) at a house show on the corner of 2nd and Lipan. Bands performing include Nathan & Stephen, Hindershot, and others TBA.



Notable Stories:


Straight Outta Junior High was Stuart Confer (of Hindershot)'s first band. They started playing in basements at house parties and accidentally turned into a nationally touring act. The band still exists today (sans Confer), touring and releasing albums.


In Vitro was Zach Tipton (of Young Coyotes/I Am the Dot)'s first band. It was while Zach toured with In Vitro that he met Adam Halferty with whom he went on to start Young Coyotes.


Corey Teruya's first band was effectively Hello Kavita. He wrote songs with the primary intent of working on recording techniques for school. Though he had no legitimate plans of forming a band, the demo he recorded was heard by then House of Blues Regional VP Jason Miller. Miller encouraged Teruya to start taking his songwriting seriously and to get a band together which, after a few name/lineup changes, eventually became Hello Kavita.


Current bands represented on this release:


Candy Claws, Young Coyotes, Houses, Hello Kavita, Hearts of Palm, Hindershot, Fingers of the Sun, Sun Red, A Mouthful of Thunder, Amazing Twin, The Don'ts and Be Carefuls, Girls Walk By, and Roger, Roll.
