Fun times with Bird's Mile Home and label update



When Bird's Mile Home went out on tour years ago this was the aftermath of a night in Longview Washington. Friend JED almost blew himself and everyone else up while trying to light a fire with a can of gas and later got hit in the face with a hotdog going faster than the speed of light. Right in the eyeball for a matter of fact.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a long way from Montana but a good friend of our moved to Missoula from the town of steel. Edhochuli were his friends and are coming back for a second go around if you missed them the last time.Fans of WantageUSA here in Missoula should check out the video below. These dudes seriously kill it. Video posted by Razorcake Gorsky Press.  Local heavy hitters Shramana have been added to the bill to accompany Edhochuli and with Duane Raider now playing bass these guys are fully shredding it around Missoula.

Stonefly and Minor Bird got one

Missoula may be Montana's mecca for music currently. There are a bunch of good folks putting on shows around town and we are glad to have our first co promotion with Stonefly productions.

Saturday November 17th at the VFW 

YARDS 

Burn Burn Burn! 

Winter's Forest 

Buddy Jackson

Portland Oregon's Yards featuring Krist Krueger of the band Southerly brings to Missoula a composition in rock. Driving ambiance Yards will sooth the soul if I did not expect them to be so loud that words cannot be heard. Burke Jam, formerly of Church Mouse and A Process of a Still Life, is longtime friends of Krist and will deafen the carets of ears when he takes the stage under the new moniker Winters Forest. Winter's Forest is a dark and ambient assault on the senses with beauty blaring forth in waves of loud guitar layers. Key word here is LOUD!

Missoula melts after Tragedy

After getting back from Portland. A recent purchase of a used His Hero is Gone cd spurred a hunt for footage. This past May Missoula was visited by Portlands' Tragedy. Here is some footage. We were more than glad at MBR to help with passing out handbills and putting up fliers. ENJOY!

Mor recurdzzz

Hey everyone!
Joey's got the keys to this runaway tugboat now!

Minor Bird's got some real neat-o releases to be filling your earholes with glory and aural intoxication going to press this month, refined to such a point that if taken internally, may cause heart attacks, and/or priapism.

Anyway,

"What is this splendor?" you may be asking.
Well, that's for us to know and you to find out!

What does Missoula have in common with Garbage and Dinosaur Jr?

                                                                 Answer: Screaming Females

                                             Monday September 24th 
                                              @ The Palace Lounge
      with
     Warm Soda
     Needle Craft
     The Juveniles
      Oll Breds
      18+ show





On their way to Seattle to head out on a tour with Garbage ( yes indeed this is the band you are thinking of) and play a few dates with Dinosaur Jr. Screaming Females will be playing a date at The Palace Lounge. It's been a while since these folk played Missoula. The hype behind this band is for a reason. Crediting Husker Du as one of their major influences this band will not disappoint. Their list of bands opening for is quite impressive and may soon be the ones other bands are crediting having opened up for.

mike watt + the missingmen 2nd heapin’ helpin’ u.s. tour 2012

Wantage Usa and Minor Bird Records team up to bring you:

Mike Watt + the missing men

MONDAY OCTOBER 1ST @ ZOO CITY APPAREL
139 E MAIN ST MISSOULA, MT
ALL AGES
$10 in adv/ $13 at the door
tix available at Ear Candy Music and Zoo City Apparel

with locals: Bird's Mile Home

Mike Watt's a name up there with folks like D. Boon, Keith Morris, and Kira Roessler, Robo and... uh, you know, people one gets a ticket to see regardless when they're coming to town. Watt was an original member of the Minutemen, legendary 80s funk-punk group whose "econo"/DIY/friends-before-careerism approach to music and shows helped re-define and invigorate underground music for generations. He: used to dress like Fidel Castro at shows, and wrote music on a crop of records that sits high atop the Western punk canon with other stuff like Black Flag, the Meat Puppets, Dead Kennedys, Germs and Red Kross. And the stuff continues to stand the test of time, with songs like the Minutemen's Corona offering the soundtrack to Johnny Knoxville's Jackass show, and everybody and their brother having a well-worn copy of Double Nickels on the Dime.

A few years ago, well, maybe 7 or 8, We Jam Econo, the Story Of the Minutemen was released. It's on Youtube for free here: http://youtu.be/HmKGusadv08

Watt's touring these days with the Missing Men, who're San Pedro punks and who rage full on. We expect greatness.


We are teaming up with Wantage USA to bring you this one Econo.

Total Fest survivors...feed your hunger for more ROCK!

As though we could not get enough this August- Missoula keeps serving up more. Total Fest is over and not many people seem to be out and about. Some are broke, some are still hung over and some are just plum worn out. Well rest up because Missoula is not quitting yet.

TOTAL FEST alumni Muhamadali are coming back. Last time here they played The Missoula Art Museum with Japanther and blew many the minds. Give 'em a listen!


                                                                                                   
                                           
                                       
This will be going down at Zoo City Apparel at 139 E Main St
this Friday at 9pm. Locals Buddy Jackson, My Two Dads, and Abe Coley add a variety of punk and noise flavorings to this ravenous serving of rock and roll.

Thursday June 14th at ZooCity Apparel

So our friends in Tacocat got in touch with us and told us about a couple RAD! bands that were looking to come to Missoula. It is happening this Thursday (amended to TONIGHT!) at Zoo City Apparel ( 139 E Main St) with Seattles' Pony Time and Stickers. Olympia's SharkPact who played Total Fest X last year at Zoo City with Japanther, also were looking for a date and this worked. Along with newly formed purveyors of Missoula's independent rock scene, Skin Flowers, this is sure to be an event to remember.


Poster image by Anneke Ayers. Keep posted for an art opening with silk screens of prints for sale by this AMAZING artist this August including a special screen unveiling for a show this fall......

Bird's Mile GO Home!!!


     So, we're wrapping up our month long residency and the VFW has been the coolest! This thursday the 29th we're going to go out with some surprises and I thought I'd leave ya'll with some clues to get your interests wicked and piqued! This has been some of my favorites here and there and I think we're going to try and rep this shit this Thursday. Remember dandelions, keep your wookiees dry! Because we're plying with Total Combined Weight, Spirit Hole, Sauna, and The Plurals. It's going to be a blowout, much like a tire! - Timmy!

Whynot TotalFest or Totally Whynot

Total Fest 2011 was amazing Big Business, The Arrivals, Shannon and the Clams, Street Eaters, Kowloon Walled City, The Trashies, Dead and the I could go on and on and on.

One of my favs though was watching an Eagle catch a fish 15 feet away from us while floating the Blackfoot with Dead and the Street Eaters. It was even more amazing when an osprey attacked the eagle and tried to take the fish right above our heads. Johnny and Megan got pictures but lost their camera in a rapid. Damm!

For 2012 we are excited for another 3 days of awesomeness during TF and Whynot Minot is gearing up for the weekend before again. Submissions are open and you can get the info here:

MRR reviews MBR catalog...STOKED!


We were pretty stoked when we picked up issue 341 of MRR and read the review section. MBR 002 through 005 were reviewed in this issue. Various reviewers gave their takes on the records and here is what they thought:

Still Single on MBR

With attempting to get this endeavor off the ground it can be hard to get noticed. Reviewers and sites get overwhelmed with material being sent in and it seems that much can get overlooked as we are noticing. You can read a disclaimer on many sites stating this exact point. With that said I would like to thank Doug Mosurock and crew at Still Single as they have reviewed every record I have sent in to them. They may not have dug the records as much as others have but at least they took the time to listen. Here are a couple if you can say "highlights"
