And possible additional Peelers releases in the works...who can say really?

3/3/07 - Yeah, we're lazy.  Fuck you.  Here's another surprise, Guitar Wolf wasn't that great of a band.  Anyway, THE MUSHUGANAS discography is still happening.  Get off our backs.  We may even have plans for another release in the works.  This magic costs money you know.

In cheerier news, there's a bunch of new reviews on the submissions page and there's a bunch more to come.

In the cheeriest of news, the Peelers are gearing up to hit the road again in April (short jaunt) and July (long jaunt) and if you missed them a few months back, don't make the same mistake again.

Finally, all Beercan tunes will be available on iTunes by the end of March.  Get off our backs.

Secondly, we'll be posting a slew of new CD submission reviews very shortly so keep sending that stuff in.  Quite frankly, we like free CD's very much.

Also, the Mushuganas discography is being feverishly worked on as we speak.  It is still happening.

11/17/05 - The latest skinny is that with releases #1 and #2 now under our belts, we are hard at work on a career retrospective of Chicago greats, The Mushuganas. You know who we're talking about and if you don't...you should.
These guys put in 10 years of fun, mayhem and unbelievable tunes and we're going to bundle it all up and bring it to YOU. Pop-punk? Punk rock? Rock and roll? Who gives a shit. It's the Mushuganas baby. Also, check the "Submissions" section for some exciting and mildly earth-shattering news!
