Well, I know that pretty much everyone in the area already knows all about this project because I’m such a big deal around here and everyone talks about everything I do and whatnot, but the Automaton Records Media Conglomerate is proud to be offering up for this year’s Homegrowners a very special compilation.
It’s a limited edition and handmade production — 39 songs on two CDs, all generously donated by the artists for use with this generously special compilation. The cost is $6! It includes a 4-color hand screen printed 100% recycled cardboard double sleeve! Holy cripes! This is a limited edition of only 200 copies.
The profits from this compilation go to the festival. So, you know, it’s good to support that too.
So don’t be one of those suckers who doesn’t buy merch at Homegrown this year. This once-in-a-lifetime piece of Homegrown history will first be offered for sale at New Band Night, May 2 at Pizza Luce, and then will be at the Electric Fetus as well as at Homegrown doors until they sell out on like the second day.
There is a little bit of misleading information regarding this project out there, as you would expect with an intense project of such an unbelievable magnitude. First, due to human error, our print campaign, consisting of that poster over yonder as well as an advertisement in the Homegrown Field Guide listed two bands – The Undesirables and The Tisdales – that got, seriously, accidentally left off the masters. (There was initial theories that it was sabotage by a rival underground media conglomerate, later disproven.) Apology contacts have already been made with members of these fine Twinports outfits. So far no contact has been received back; in the spirit of forging ahead, we at the ARMC will assume that our highly specialized skills of communication were enough to assure the lack of conglomerate hatred.
Finally I will present for your reading enjoyment the final track listing of this most excellent set of discs. Please NOTE! Many/some/a number of these songs are unreleased- Including Portrait of a Drowned Man’s “First Breath and the Break,” and Manheat’s “Hotel Suicide (Barstool Mix).” Truthfully, the exact number of rare/unreleased/bootleg/remix recordings on this set of recordings has been lost to time. Maybe some sort of Twinports know-it-all music doofus will figure it all out for us. If they do, man, that would be so unbelievably sweeeeeeeet. I could turn this image sideways, making it easier for you to read, but this is how it is inside the packaging, so we’ll just leave it as it is. Have fun turning your head to read exactly HOW MANY of your favorite local bands are on this freaking thing. It’s like a great big bundle of Homegrown goodness and joy.
