Cyber Monday Sale: 20% off the entire site!

Posted by Sam Richardson on 11/26/2017 to News

Hey folks! Hope everyone out there is having a quality holiday weekend. I had a great time visiting family and filling up on the traditional Thanksgiving fixings...also got in a much needed FRIED EGG practice session. I'd say we're 3/4 done writing for a 12" and I can't wait to get back to the studio for this one. Before that, we'll have a Beat Session cassette out on LA's Shout Recordings (dropping with an IMPALERS session tape as well!). Also, just figured I'd mention that Fried Egg is headed up to DC on Dec 15 to play the last KOMBAT / CLOSET CHRIST show, which is shaping up to be insane. Totally worth a drive from anywhere in the mid-Atlantic region. If you can't hit that one, there's also a rare INMATES / BAD NOIDS / VILE GASH gig in NYC the following night, which I'll be at as well. Haven't seen Bad Noids in something like 5 years! But onto the Cyber Monday sale...

I wanted to give mailing list folks first crack at this sale before I blast social media tomorrow, so have at it! 20% off EVERYTHING on the site. Just enter NOWTHATSADEAL in the "Apply coupon" box at checkout. Now is a great time to pick up the latest batch of imports from NO PATIENCE (which are all running very low), not to mention the new COWBOYS LP on Hozac, which is going down as one of my favorite 2017 releases. I also marked all of the remaining Feel It "Logo" shirts (Sam Ryser design) down to $7, and with the Cyber Monday discount, they're even cheaper! Help me clear some room so I can print up a new run of shirts, maybe even some tote bags?!

Free shipping still applies for all US orders of $60 or more. Free Feel It sticker with every order.


Busy as ever! HAIRCUT + RIK & THE PIGS 7"s are due to hit the presses on Tuesday. Both releases for THE COWBOYS are in the trusted hands of Josh Bonati for mastering and cutting, and artwork is ready to roll, so we're very much on schedule for a February release.

ALSO - I'm always looking for new stores and distros to carry Feel It releases (+ others that I distribute), and I've made that much, much easier with a new wholesale website. So here's a little incentive I'm offering to customers: If you share this wholesaler signup link with a new shop or distro and have them mention your name as a referral in the "comments" section of the signup form, I will personally send you a 20% off coupon to use towards any future order.

Before I sign off, here's Episode 5 of Feel It Radio...told you I would be keeping up with the show! Enjoy the tunes / catch you soon.


November 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 11/14/2017 to News
Hello everyone! Back with some excellent new records for you in November. It sure feels like winter around here, and I'm honestly glad to be done with touring for the next few months. My new band CEMENT SHOES just played our first two legit local shows last week, and it was much better than the previous open mic night where the MC unplugged us! If you're curious, Cement Shoes also features folks from Brown Sugar, Tapehead, Haircut, and Firing Squad and we play a rocked out style of hardcore punk. I am stoked. Demo forthcoming on the Loki Label. Otherwise, I've been busy getting things in line for the upcoming RIK AND THE PIGS and HAIRCUT 7"s, which are due to be on press in just a couple weeks. There will be limited "clear beer" yellow vinyl for the HAIRCUT 7" as well, and it looks like they'll be touring in the spring.

Okay, lets keep going. Today marked a very special, unexpected delivery of records and tapes from NO PATIENCE RECORDS. For the uninitiated, No Patience are one of the best current underground Australian labels and I'm very happy to now be distributing their releases in North America.

We have brand new LPs from THE UGLIES and DEATH CHURCH, the TALC 7", and pro-cassettes from BELGRADO, PTSD, SKIZOPHRENIA, SISTEMA EN DECADENCIA, and THE UGLIES! Act fast as all of these are limited to 300 or less!

Buy here: http://www.feelitrecordshop.com/NEW-ARRIVALS_c_32.html

Also new in the distro - a big restock from Drunken Sailor, new jams from NASTI, RAKTA, and ACRYLICS on Iron Lung, new LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS 12", UNIFORM 12", the gSp 12" and NEON demo CS from Thrilling Living, new LIQUIDS 7", HARAM LP, plus some sick fanclub/KBD type reissues, and more demo cassettes. Oh yeah, make sure you check all of the sweet new sale items that have been marked down - some serious deals to be had! Free shipping still applies for all US orders of $60 or more.

I also have some brand new Feel It stickers to toss in with every order! Featuring artwork from our latest shirt design created by Shiva Addanki of Kaleidoscope.

Well I've already mentioned the upcoming batch of 7"s for December, but last week I also sent off for the first two Feel It releases of 2018. Very pleased to announce that we'll be working with
THE COWBOYS on two separate records. First, a proper US edition of the "Volume 4" LP with its original tracklisting (that matches the tape version on Turd World) and a 7" edition of the "Live At Tony's Garage" session, which was recorded in California on The Cowboys' most recent trip out West. You can have a listen to the live session at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbagxW8_FVo And if you're unfamiliar with the Volume 4 LP, we just restocked a big grip of the UK edition from our pals at Drunken Sailor.
Anyhow, we're looking at a February release for both discs, and there WILL be colored vinyl for both. I will probably bite the bullet and announce some pre-order options once the new year hits.

On a closing note, I am finally back on top of things and have restarted the Feel It radio show! Episode #4 has just been posted and is chock full of over 1 hour of rock music spanning the 60's up through, uhh, the future? That's right, I played a new Rik and the Pigs track off the test pressing of their upcoming 7" on Feel It. Anyhow, thanks for reading, and I'll be back in a few short weeks with some great new releases to share with you.


October 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 10/20/2017 to News
Hey folks! October has flown by, and what a busy month it's been! I returned from another fun and successful Fried Egg tour earlier this week. Couldn't have asked for a better time and hospitality, especially in Toronto at Not Dead Yet Fest. Great to finally meet some of you in person! Anyhow, I tried to scoop up a bunch of new releases while on the road and came home to a full mailbox, so the site is loaded with an incredible selection of new arrivals. But lets get to the big news here, Feel It is proud to unleash our thirteenth release today - the debut 7" from DIRTY & HIS FISTS.
Los Angeles punks DIRTY & HIS FISTS deliver a knockout four song EP on their vinyl debut, following a standout demo cassette. For the uninitiated, DIRTY & HIS FISTS have quickly become one of the best American punk bands alive, and one of the few to match powerful writing and performance with some of the best studio production out there. The Fists easily eclipse their demo with this new EP, incorporating a crunchy layer of synth, pounding rhythm section (featuring new drummer Sam Bosson), and ace production from guitarist/vocalist Mike Kriebel, who you may recognize as producer of recent Beat Sessions for Uranium Club, Urochromes, and P22. An undeniably great and memorable American punk record. Packaged in a reverse board pocket sleeve with an 7"x11" lyric insert and digital download.
Click here to stream/download the digital release.

I just approved tests presses for both the HAIRCUT and RIK AND THE PIGS 7"s, so those are very much on schedule for a December release. Beyond that, I've got a few very exciting releases to announce later this year. 2018 is lining up to be a pretty great year of releases already.


As I mentioned earlier, the distro is flush with new arrivals and restocks, plus October just happens to have delivered some of the BEST new records of 2017 so far. Lets run things down real quick: the new batch of Lumpy Records are perhaps the label's strongest releases yet (GEN POP, U-NIX, VANILLA POPPERS, THE WORLD), LEBENDEN TOTEN are back with an incredible new LP, new SUBURBAN HOMES single is ace UK DIY punk, plus I picked up some releases from Montreal's Swollen City Records (NO NEGATIVE + ULTRARAT 7"s, IMPOTENTIE CS) and a grip of tapes from Runstate (including the final INEPSY session!). Beyond that the DENDO MARIONETTE LP is a great slice of archival Japanese 80's new wave/synth action, PATSY's new 12" is ruling the stereo, oh-and we finally have the new Feel It shirts up on the site! Anyhow, I'll leave it at that for now - as always I try and write 100% of the descriptions on the site, so check there for more. Also look for the Feel It radio show to make a return this winter! I am determined to keep that a regular feature from now on.

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

September 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 9/18/2017 to News
Hello everyone, as summer comes to an end I've got a ton happening with the label, so here's our September update! I was hoping to have the DIRTY & HIS FISTS 7" ready, as well as a slew of distributed releases from our Australian pals at No Patience, but it should only be another few weeks before all of those are ready.

First off, I want to share an update on how our fundraiser to relief efforts in Charlottesville went. Feel It contributed a percentage of August sales, totaling $233 to Charlottesville Victim Relief! Very happy to have contributed to helping my hometown. Thanks to everyone who placed an order since I announced the fundraiser.

Okay, so moving onto label news, the vinyl is actually already here for the next Feel It release - the debut 7" from LA punks
DIRTY & HIS FISTS. The print parts for this release are all currently in production so it should only be another few weeks before this killer 7" is in circulation. I went ahead and posted the entire EP on Bandcamp as well.

Stream/download DIRTY & HIS FISTS "S/T" 7" (FEEL IT 13) out in October!

After that, I've got two more 7"s at the plant and on schedule for a December release. While I've already announced the debut 7" from Richmond's HAIRCUT, Feel It will also be releasing a new RIK AND THE PIGS 7"! Very glad to have the Pigs back for another record. This record is super fresh, recorded in Portland at the tail end of the Pigs' West coast tour in July. This time the entire six piece lineup plays on the record, including the sax player. Much like the upcoming LP on Total Punk, the sound of this material is much fuller (notice how I didn't say "produced", we're still talking punk rock here) and very representative of the Pigs' killer live show. Three cuts appear on the 7", including new versions of "TV Bloopers" and "Off/On" plus the brand new "Blue Jean Queen", which kicks off Side A. For now, here's "TV Bloopers", mastered by Josh Bonati.

Stream "TV Bloopers" by RIK AND THE PIGS from their upcoming 7" (FEEL IT 15).

I've also got a small repress of RIK AND THE PIGS "Life's A Bust" 7" due to land with the new 7". The first pressing of 700 is nearly sold out and with the new Pigs LP and 7" hitting soon, plus some touring action (check for dates below!), it only makes sense to keep "Life's A Bust" in print, right?!

THE LANDLORDS "Hey! It's A Teenage House Party" LP reissue hit some more production snags and has been delayed indefinitely.

Oh, and we just said goodbye to
CHRISTI, who played their last show in late August with Sheer Mag and Haram. Fortunately the band got around to putting their final recordings out on pro cassettes, and I just added those to the site.

First things first,
CROPPED OUT 2017 is happening this weekend in Louisville, KY and I'll have the Feel It distro set up at the American Turners Club on Friday 9/22 and Saturday 9/23. Fried Egg plays at 2:45pm on Saturday, but other than that I'll be hanging out at the Feel It table most of the time, with some cool NEW SHIRTS designed by Shiva aka Informationman from Kaleidoscope. I just picked these up and they look incredible! Note that the actual tees are a bit lighter, more of a "sapphire", if you will. I'll have the leftover tees in the webstore next week, but if you want to request a certain size (or even a different colorway for when I print more) simply respond to this email with any requests.

Come October,
FRIED EGG is hitting the road yet again for a short tour around Not Dead Yet in Toronto, where we'll be joining a ton of killer contemporary acts, including RIK AND THE PIGS and KALEIDOSCOPE. I will have the distro in tow - which also means that all webstore orders placed after Friday October 6 will not ship until Tuesday October 17. Ok, so here are those Fried Egg dates, a few of which are with Buffalo, NY's RADIATION RISKS.

10/7 Philly @ Timecube w/ Dark Thoughts, Dialer
10/8 Hadley, MA @ Tears for Sears w/ Meat Dreams, Gay Mayor
10/9 Sherbrooke, QC @ TBA w/ Radiation Risks
10/10 Montreal @ Braserie Beaubien w/ Radiation Risks, Total Bliss, Boar God
10/11 Ottawa @ Pressed w/ Radiation Risks, Doxx
10/13 Toronto - Not Dead Yet Gig #3 @ Sneaky Dees
10/15 Cleveland @ Now That's Class w/ Yambag, Weed Whacker

RIK AND THE PIGS Austin + Northeast tour (*many dates with PATSY)
10/6 Austin Weekend at Barry's w/ Giuda, the Leash, the Whiffs, Little Fish, the Rubs, Cheap Fur
10/7 Austin Weekend at Barry's w/ Secret Prostitutes, Nosferatu, the Cowboys, Breakout, Bondage, Trouble Boys, Loteria
10/9 Cleveland w/ Patsy, the Cowboy, Street Gurgler @ Now That's Class
10/10 Pittsburgh w/ Patsy, Peace Talks, Painted Eyes @ Camp Clarke
10/11 Rochester w/ Patsy
10/12 Montreal w/ Patsy, Narcoestado, HVAC, Faze, ODD @ l'Esco
10/14 Toronto Not Dead Yet Gig #9 @ Coalition
10/15 Buffalo
10/16 Boston w/ Video Filth, Bombers, Security @ Jeanie Johnstons
10/17 NYC w/ Kaleidoscope, C.H.E.W., Mati @ Brooklyn Bazaar
10/18 NYC
10/19 Philadelphia w/ Blank Spell, Mint @ 1810 Bouvier St

Ok I'll keep this short since this is a pretty massive email, but I'm keeping the distro well stocked as always with new arrivals posted to the site several times a week. I've had THE COWBOYS-Vol. 4 LP on constant rotation, but aside from that the new URCHIN 7", PUBLIC EYE LP, BOOJI BOYS 7", and CHOW LINE CS come highly recommended. I also stocked up on some zines (which there has been a serious lack of in 2017) including Negative Insight, Dynamite Hemmorhage, and the Scratch'N'Sniff collection.

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

August 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 8/18/2017 to News
Hey folks, back with some more news for ya. I returned from Fried Egg west coast tour last week, and let me tell you, that ruled! It was great to finally meet some of you in person, and seriously, every show ruled. Aside from driving like a madman (Portland to San Diego and back up to Vancouver!) the whole trip was wildly enjoyable, the sights were incredible, and we got to play with some amazing bands. Check Maximum Rocknroll Radio this Sunday to hear the episode Fried Egg recorded while in San Francisco and keep yer eyes peeled for a Fried Egg Beat Session cassette coming in October on Shout Recordings.

Unfortunately, we came home to a pretty awful situation in our hometown of Charlottesville, and I'm sure many of you saw the news over the weekend, so let me say this:
As you may know, I am a native of Charlottesville, VA. On August 12, a massive "Unite the Right" event was held in protest to a statue of Robert E. Lee being removed from Lee Park in downtown Charlottesville. Thousands gathered, including Nazis, Klansmen, and those from other right wing organizations. Many of my friends were out among the thousands in protest, and sadly enough, a legitimate act of domestic terrorism was committed as a 20-year old "alt-right" supporter drove his car into a group of protesters on Charlottesville's downtown mall, killing one and injuring 19. This is not something to ignore, or casually play off as a one-time occurrence.
In standing in solidarity with those in need of help in Charlottesville, I will be donating 20% of all sales until the end of August and also matching that amount personally. Stay tuned for updates on the fundraising efforts.


All orders that came in while I was out of town have been shipped and I've added quite a few
new arrivals to the site this week, as you can see. As I always strive to do, I've written reviews for every new arrival, so I'll spare you the fine print, though I'd highly recommend the COWBOYS-Vol 4 LP, RUT 7", THE COWBOY + CITRIC DUMMIES LPs, KATASTROF 7", BAD POSTURE LP reissue, and BANSHEE LP. Tons more on the way including the new ORION CS on Cool Death, ANTISEX LP, PUBLIC EYE LP, and more!

Lots of new releases in production here. DIRTY & HIS FISTS 7" test presses have been approved and vinyl should be here by early September! Finalizing some artwork and aiming to have this one ready for our September update. THE LANDLORDS LP is finally, finally about ready to go off to press, as is the debut 7" from HAIRCUT, which I just posted a preview track from! Five killer HC punk tracks on this 7".

Click here to listen to "Boys Club" by HAIRCUT from the "Shutting Down" 7" (FEEL IT 14).

More exciting releases to announce later...for now lets just say that I nailed down two new, very exciting projects while in Olympia earlier this month :)

Remember - FRIED EGG and the Feel It distro will be at CROPPED OUT in Louisville, Kentucky from Sept 22-23! Fried Egg is also touring around NOT DEAD YET in Toronto come early October and I'll be posting those dates in the next update.

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

July 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 7/18/2017 to News
Hey folks, another month has flown by and it's time for a newsletter update. I spent the past couple of weeks moving into a new place and after finally getting settled, it's about time to take off for tour. In case you missed any of my previous posts, FRIED EGG will be leaving for a West coast tour in just over a week! I will not have the distro on tour since we're flying, but will have a few copies of recent Feel It releases and the band will have a whole bunch of merch including a new shirt design from Lumpy and these crisp risograph posters.

7/27 Portland - Blackwater
7/28 Santa Rosa - The Church on 5th
7/29 SF - Hemlock Tavern
7/30 LA - Rec Center
8/1 Tijuana - Moustache Bar
8/2 Grover Beach - Skip Gibson's BBQ
8/3 Oakland - The Octopus
8/4 Eugene - TBA
8/6 Olympia Hardcore Fest matinee - Le Voyeur
8/7 Seattle - The In
8/8 Vancouver - 333

More info:


First off, the distro will remain open while I'm on tour, but any orders placed after Tuesday July 27 will not ship until Monday August 14.
Just added a serious heaping of new arrivals to the site today, including two monstrous new Texan HC/punk LPs from GLUE and IMPALERS, the new SHEER MAG full length, ruling new hardcore 7" EPs from THE BUG, CRIATURAS, and KOMBAT, and cassettes from INNOCENT, BRAINWASHED CALIFORNIA, EYE JAMMY, BLUE DOLPHIN, and more! I'll also have the SACRIFICIO LP on Cintas Pepe and new Total Punk 7"s in later this week. That'll be about it for new arrivals until I'm back from tour.

Coming in WAY ahead of schedule, we have test presses for DIRTY AND HIS FISTS "S/T" 7" in hand! Just waiting on the band to approve tests and finalize artwork, meaning this record should be out late August/early September. In case you missed our last update, you can stream a track from the record below.

Listen to "Whistleblower" from DIRTY & HIS FISTS "S/T" 7" (FEEL IT 13) out Fall 2017!

We've also made some progress on THE LANDLORDS "Hey! It's A Teenage House Party!" LP reissue. The lacquers are being cut in August and artwork is just about finalized. Should be sending that off with another new release we're proud to announce - the 7" vinyl debut for HAIRCUT. If you missed their excellent Criatura demo from 2016 (and there is precisely one copy left in our webstore) do yourself a favor and check out one of Virginia's best and most relevant hardcore punk groups in years. The band just packed up and moved from Charlottesville to Richmond and recorded a killer 5 track EP, which I instantly asked to release. Haircut are going back to put some finishing touches on the mix, then we should have a preview track to share with you in our August update. In the meantime, check out these three new Haircut tracks from a promo tape, which we'll have copies of later this summer.

                             HAIRCUT live at Magnolia House in Charlottesville, VA

Also look for FRIED EGG and the Feel It distro at CROPPED OUT in Louisville, Kentucky from Sept 22-23!

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

June 2017 Update

Posted by Sam Richardson on 6/9/2017 to News
Hey folks, back with a slew of label news and updates for you.
Thanks to everyone who has kept me busy with orders for the Kaleidoscope Volume 3 12".
The band just returned from a very successful tour and if you saw them live, like I was lucky enough to, weren't they incredible?! It's also worth mentioning that the Kaleidoscope record is now available digitally through Spotify, as are most of the recent Feel It releases.

I've been making some much-needed updates to the webstore over the past couple weeks.
First off, the store is now finally sending order confirmation emails for every new order. I've also enabled the option to pay securely with credit/debit cards at checkout. Another new feature available by request is an "add to hold pile" option for anyone looking to build up a large order but not miss out on new distro items that may sell out over time. Simply reply to this email if you're interested in using this feature. In case you haven't noticed, Feel It now offers free shipping for all domestic orders of $60 or more.

I just returned from NYC with copies of the brand new ROCK'N'ROLL FOREVER zine produced by Ben Trogdon of Nuts! fanzine. This 108 page full-color newsprint zine collects the best of Ben's photos over the past ten years from Olympia to NYC. It is chock full of the best live shots of bands like Milk Music, Sex Vid, Gun Outfit, Hysterics, Crazy Spirit, Warthog, Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, La Misma, Nandas, and Perdition, just to name a few! Highly recommended.

Also new are two standout 7" EPs on the Blow Blood label from BULSCH and MAGIC CITY.
The new wave of Cleveland punk genius! What else? We have the now sold-out May issue of Maximum Rock N Roll that features a Kaleidoscope interview conducted by yours truly, the insane new CLOSET CHRIST tape, latest LP from INSTITUTE, and a serious slew of other new arrivals.

Sometimes cool projects just land in front of your face - and that's exactly what has happened with DIRTY & HIS FISTS, who will be releasing a self-titled 7" on Feel It this Fall! For those unfamiliar, Da Fists are from LA - started by Mike Kriebel, whom you might recognize for having produced the amazing recent series of Beat Session cassettes from Uranium Club, Urochromes, and P22. Dirty & His Fists released a killer demo cassette on Mike's Shout Recordings imprint in 2016, a nearly perfect punk demo that's as catchy and memorable as bands like The Spits, The Weirdos, and other top shelf West coast punk. Fast forward to 2017, Dirty & His Fists are back with four new tracks on this 7", tighter and catchier than their demo, even adding a synth to the mix. If anyone else caught Da Fists on their recent East coast tour around Damaged City Fest, you'll know how great they are - and here's the proof on vinyl.

Listen to "Whistleblower" from DIRTY & HIS FISTS "S/T" 7" (FEEL IT 13) out Fall 2017!

THE LANDLORDS "Hey! It's A Teenage House Party!" LP reissue is still in production, look for that to be out in late 2017.

I am moving offices at the end of June, so expect a short delay in shipping orders towards the end of the month. It's going to be a busy summer for me because FRIED EGG are flying out to do a West coast tour in late July! Really can't wait to be out there and meet some of you.

27 PORTLAND @ Blackwater w/ U-Nix + more TBA

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

KALEIDOSCOPE "Volume 3" 12" out now!

Posted by Sam Richardson on 5/11/2017 to News

Hello! We are very pleased to announce the first Feel It release of 2017:

                           Kaleidoscope "Volume 3" 12"




Kaleidoscope are a rare group, having continually evolved and expanded in form since their inception. Volume 3 marks the first Kaleidoscope release of 2017, a masterfully crafted follow-up to several cassette releases on their own D4MT Labs imprint and a 7” EP on Katorga Works. Since then, the three members of Kaleidoscope have taken up residency in a shared Brooklyn apartment and basement studio. In doing so, their collective spirit of creativity and resourcefulness has risen to an all-time high.

The six tracks on Volume 3 serve as a testament to the group's unique and unwavering commitment to an original sound – one that is undoubtedly crafted with a well-refined taste for international punk and hardcore, but also embraces experimentation. Engineered entirely in the group's home studio and layered with original samples, overdubs, and guest instrumentation from an ensemble of friends. The end result is simple – a highly impressive production that commands repeat listening.

Volume 3 is presented with the recognizable aesthetic of previous Kaleidoscope releases, directed by guitarist/vocalist Information Man [SHDK], though truly a cohesive group effort. Packaged with a Risographed lyric booklet that serves as a proper companion piece to each transmission. FEEL IT 11.

Purchase at: http://www.feelitrecordshop.com
Stream/download at: https://feelitrecords.bandcamp.com/album/volume-3
Watch music video for "Simulator" at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmDPNZcTWcU

We've also just updated the webstore with a new Kaleidoscope collection CS, Uncle Tamm CS (highly recommended, new project from Eddie of Brown Sugar/Ivy produced in Kaleidoscope's home studio), U-Nix CS (killer new PDX HC, ex-NASA Space Universe) and new releases from LVEUM, Total Punk, Drunken Sailor, Beach Impediment, Iron Lung, and more!

Up next on Feel It is a reissue of The Landlords Hey! It's A Teenage House Party! LP from 1984. A fantastic 21 song Hardcore/punk album from my hometown of Charlottesville, VA. We just received the remastered audio from Dave Eck at Lucky, so here is a preview track. Look for the LP later this summer - and in the meantime check out The Landlords Fitzgerald's Paris LP that we issued on Feel It in 2016.

5/23 Montreal @ La Vitrola w/ Trepanated Heads, Ultra Razzia
5/24 Toronto @ Faith/Void w/ Anti-Vibes, Twin Mask
5/25 Rochester @ Photo City Improv w/ Stress, Cicada, Tech X
5/26 Cleveland - Horrible Fest @ Now That's Class w/ Warthog, La Misma, Lacerate, Prostitutes, Empty Beings
5/27 Hammond, IN @ Hubbard's Hangout w/ Liquids, Love Ain't No Feeling, The Place Holders
5/28 Chicago @ Anneli's w/ Skin Tags, Judge Judy and the Executioner, Nervous Wreck
5/30 Bloomington @ Jan's Rooms w/ The Cowboys, Dog, Skull Cult
5/31 Greensboro @ Ask a punk w/ Drugcharge
6/1 DC @ Chill Factory w/ Fried Egg, Rashomon, Diaspora
6/2 Philly @ Ask a punk w/ Rashomon, Blank Spell, Devil Master

I just returned from a short Fried Egg tour around It's Cold Outside Fest in Toronto. All of the shows were a blast and it was a real pleasure to meet some of you in person! Fried Egg has a brand new 7" EP out on Beach Impediment Records entitled "Back and Forth". You can jam it here. We will also be touring the West coast around Olympia Hardcore Fest from July 27-August 9...more info on that soon!

And one final note - CHRISTI just announced that their final show will be on 8/25 in Richmond @ Strange Matter w/ Sheer Mag, Haram, and Birth Defects. Christi will be missed, as they were a very important band in our eyes, especially in Richmond. They will have cassette copies of their final recordings at this show. We wish them the best in their future endeavors!

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.

News and 2016 wrap-up

Posted by Sam Richardson on 12/29/2016 to News

Hey people, hope everyone is having a nice holiday season so far. Just wanted to send out a quick update to close out 2016. It ended up being a rather productive year for Feel It, with four new releases that I am really proud of: 7"s for Bad Noids + Rik and the Pigs and LPs for The Landlords and NASA Space Universe. I also got away with touring for over two months of the year - driving the Spaniards in La URSS and my own band, Fried Egg. Needless to say this has all been a blast in spite of the godawful election results and what I'd call a pretty lame and drama-filled year for the Richmond scene. But yeah, onto the real news here, lets talk about records...

Just updated the distro with the latest Total Punk and Lumpy Rex releases, including TWO new Rik and the Pigs singles that absolutely rule. Plenty of other quality new arrivals up there too...I especially recommend the latest issue of Not For Everyone for those in search of a quality new music mag.

I also just launched the first episode of Feel It Radio over at: https://www.mixcloud.com/feelitrecords/
The radio show is something I've been toying with forever and finally have the time to commit to. The goal is to play a mix of material from my collection and new releases from the distro. In general, I'd just like to get away from copy/pasting descriptions of records on the site and, y'know, actually play and talk about new releases like a real radio DJ!  Anyhow, I welcome any feedback on the first show, as I'm still fine tuning the formula going forward.

What else? Feel It is finally on Facebook, where I'll post smaller bits of label news and distro updates in between newsletters. So if you wanna keep up with that, you can like the page HERE. We're also on Instagram @feelitrecordshop in case you didn't know.

OK and onto some upcoming release news! Mixes are finally in for the Kaleidoscope Vol. 3 12". Let me tell you, this record is truly incredible. Six new tracks that follow up quickly on the heels of Kaleidoscope's 7" on Katorga Works. I had kind of expected the new material to be a bit more experimental ala the Kaleidoscope tape releases, and while there is certainly an inventive and loose quality to the new tracks, they are also very concise and focused. We've got the project in line at Bonati Mastering right now which means I should have a preview track to share soon!  In the meantime, Kaleidoscope are heading out on a short tour in January, info as follows:

1/13- Washington DC
1/14- Raleigh, NC
1/15- Atlanta, GA @ Murmur
1/16- Hattiesburg, MS
1/17- New Orleans
1/18- OFF
1/19- Charlottesville, VA @ Magnolia House w/ Fried Egg, Slump, Haircut
1/20- Philadelphia

Kaleidoscope will also be appearing at Everything Is Not OK III in Oklahoma City, March 9-12, 2017.

I'm also pleased to announce that Feel It will be reissuing The Landlords Hey! It's A Teenage House Party! LP from 1984. Following our archival release of their long-lost second album, Fitzgerald's Paris, it only makes perfect sense to give the first Landlords LP a proper reissue. A phenomenally underrated 21 track album from the same Charlottesville, VA hardcore punk weirdos that spawned Happy Flowers. Restored from the original 1/4" masters recorded by Don Zientara at the legendary Inner Ear Studios (with a fun guest vocal spot from Dave Smalley!). This LP blew my 15-year-old mind when I first heard it and is a cult classic among US Hardcore aficionados...beyond stoked to reissue this thing with some cool unpublished photos and possible bonus download material.  See the video below for a taste of the LP.

That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool. Catch you in 2017.

New BAD NOIDS 7" + Fried Egg Mixtape out now!

Posted by Sam Richardson on 10/14/2016 to News
Hey folks, just got back from Fried Egg tour, which was a blast!  Great to see and meet some of you while I was on the road.  I've been assembling BAD NOIDS 7"s nonstop over the past few days and they are up now on the site, along with a sweet batch of new distro arrivals, many of which I picked up on tour.

BAD NOIDS new 7" features three tracks of their signature, obnoxious brand of Cleveland punk.  Easily their best recorded material in my opinion.  Tony from SQRM/Gluebag/Burnt Envelope contributed the artwork which turned out incredibly well.  The BAD NOIDS boys are currently touring Europe!  Go see 'em if you can - tour dates are available here.

The Fried Egg mixtape features 16 tracks total, almost completely unreleased and profesionally mastered/duplicated for best sound quality.  Some of my favorite tracks on this are from DEFORMITY, RIK AND THE PIGS, RUBBER MATE, TOMMY T, and QUITTER. 

You can listen to both the BAD NOIDS 7" and Fried Egg mixtape via the Feel It webstore.

Also wanted to note that CHRISTI are going on tour in November.  They've hardly played outside Virginia before, so now might be your only shot to see CHRISTI if they come through your city.  They will have the last copies of the "Cry" 7" on Feel It available and possibly a tape with brand new material that rules.  Here are the dates, and if you think you can help with any of the starred dates, please drop me an email!  More details on individual shows available via the band's Facebook page.

11/12 Greensboro, NC
11/13 Atlanta, GA
11/14 Hattiesburg, MS
11/15 New Orleans, LA *HELP NEEDED*
11/16 Memphis, TN *HELP NEEDED*
11/17 St. Louis, MO
11/18 Murray, KY
11/19 Evansville, IN *HELP NEEDED*
11/20 Bloomington, IN
11/21 Lexington, KY

Alright, I've got to run to play a show tonight.  The only other news I've got is that KALEIDOSCOPE are set to record their "Vol. 3" LP for Feel It in December.  Fingers crossed that we can at least have test presses for the band's appearance at Everything Is Not OK 3 in March.

New 7"s from Brando's Island, Cold Meat, and Void (UK) out now!

Posted by Sam Richardson on 9/11/2016 to News
Feel It is back with three new exclusively distributed releases.  We've got the latest 7" from Australian new wave/synth punks BRANDO'S ISLAND, the debut 7" from fellow Australian snotters COLD MEAT, and an excellent archival release of '79 UK punk from London's VOID, which comes with the latest issue of Defiant Pose zine.  Please head on over to the Feel It site to read more and listen to each of these releases.  There are plenty of new distro arrivals as well, including new issues of Cretins of Distortion + The Mental Whiff, new Ausmuteants LP, new Warthog 7", the list goes on...

The BAD NOIDS "It's A Doggie Bag World" 7" will officially be out in two weeks on Feel It.  Just awaiting sleeves and these things will be ready to go!  In the meantime I've posted the A-side track and cover artwork over at our Soundcloud page. 
BAD NOIDS will be touring Europe (for the second time!) from October 12-29, tour dates are available here.

Another exciting thing on the horizon is CROPPED OUT FESTIVAL.  Feel It will have a distro table set up on Saturday September 24.  If you're out in Louisville, KY for the fest please come check out the table, as I will have plenty of new and exciting items, certainly more than what you see on the webstore!  Can't wait to hit the road, catch some great bands, and camp out.

Now is also a good time to let ya know that FRIED EGG have a short southern/midwest tour happening in early October.  I will have the Feel It distro at these shows as well.  Really excited to hit the road on the new Fried Egg 7" on Negative Jazz.  If all goes according to plan we will also have a brand new Fried Egg Mixtape (more on that later) and a new shirt designed by Abraham Diaz.

RIK AND THE PIGS "Life's A Bust" 7" out now

Posted by Sam Richardson on 8/19/2016
Hey everyone!  The long awaited Rik and the Pigs "Life's A Bust" 7" is now available on Feel It.  I'll keep this short since I've got to run to work, but plain and simple, this 7" rules.  It is one of my favorite releases on the label thus far and I'm excited to finally have this thing out.

The second 7” from RIK AND THE PIGS is finally here, a smoking follow-up to 2015's "Pig Sweat" single on Total Punk. “Life's A Bust” features three new tracks recorded between Rik's time in Portland and his new home base of Olympia, WA. Side A boasts two cuts of completely savage and hook-filled punk – exactly the kind of snot and filth that you'd expect from Rik & Co. On the flip, “Life's A Bust” is a completely different animal, a loose and driving five minute tune featuring incredible guitar work and drumming from Michael Liebman and Corey Rose of Olympia's VEXX. Cut loud at 45RPM by Josh Bonati and housed in a full color glue pocket sleeve, this just might be the ultimate Pigs release to date. FEEL IT 09.

Up next on Feel It is a new 7" from Cleveland's BAD NOIDS.  I caught them open up the matinee gig at Horriblefest this past May and was blown away by the new songs in the set.  We got to talking and I figured out that they had recorded three new songs, and boy, these are easily my favorite BAD NOIDS recordings yet.  Test pressings arrive today and we plan to have this one out by the time that BAD NOIDS leave for their second European tour in early October!  Have a listen to "Into The Future" from the new 7".
KALEIDOSCOPE recently returned from a successful US tour.  They will be recording "Vol. 3" in it's entirety for a 12" on Feel It, lets plan on seeing that in early 2017.
I'll have some cool new exclusive distro items soon, expect an update in early September with the new issue of DEFIANT POSE mag from London, which will feature a 7" of unreleased material from VOID (not the DC group! This UK VOID were first wave late-70's punks).  That's about it for now, stay tuned and stay cool.
