" is a direct violation of national law to grant privileges and civil rights to members or citizens of an entity within the national body, yet deny and even severely prosecute other members or citizens of the national entity for the same rights and privileges granted special to separate groups, members or citizens of the national entity as a whole."

Federal Intoxicants Act Preamble

The genie is out of the bottle and will not be put back in. Cannabis may be legal in some states, with different kinds of legality, various state laws allow medical, recreational, or a combination, use, yet cannabis is still 100% illegal in the United States outside of "states rights" issues and regional laws.

The recent decision by The Justice Department does not mean it is now legal for citizens of those states, yet "the states will not be prosecuted" nor will it citizens, supposedly, yet the draconian federal laws remain in effect for the rest of us, and actually, for all "United States Citizens". What is amazing, and illegal, is now certain "groups" or citizens, depending on where they live in the country, have special rights and privileges most do not. So instead of fixing their federal law, the government wants to allow "states rights" concerning cannabis. While everyone believes now each state will pass laws, most WILL NOT. Growers and users of cannabis remain criminals in those states, AND most will for years to come.

This causes serious problems, in many different ways. Free People, who cannot simply be "claimed" for whatever purposes, by other authoritative entities, have been able to peacefully, non-commercially, grow and use cannabis since way before any state "allowed" it, even if the law says otherwise. Nothing has changed for us, in fact, since we are speaking up and demanding the same civil rights and privileges as others, some in authority have a serious problem with that.

They like a crazy system which rules like theirs does. It is well past time for that to change.

The Federal Intoxicants Act allows anyone in the nation with a permit to grow hemp. It even has clauses for medical and commercial registrations, which allows everyone to take part in these growing businesses. It's time has come.

12": Fanzine Spain/FAN 002
Techno/House / �4.99
Jason Li always knows how to take acidic house and techno to next level of hyper-resolution, injecting more colour, sparkle and punch into his drums and synths than many other producers could even dream of. So it is on Distant Lines, his latest offering which surfaces on Spanish label Fanzine. The title track is prime BSU material, as cascading 303 lines meet with twinkling arrays of synth over yearning bass, while the drums splatter out a merry madness of vintage jack. "Thaw" is a more measured affair, reining the beats back and letting a more reflective melodic section take hold. "Low Simmer" meanwhile manages to strike a neat balance between the two, ramping up the rhythmic energy whilst keeping the nagging synth lines in check.

grey vinyl 12": Gynoid Audio/GYNOID 012
Techno / �4.99
The fearsomely prolific Gynoid Audio label from Australia makes one of its rare outings on wax with this sturdy business from Truncate. "31" is a particularly grooving number for one of the key champions of stripped down, raw techno, letting those devastatingly simple rhythms interlock and trail out into a hypnotic eternity. DJ Hyperactive brings a touch more tone and pulse to his remix, adding some choice electronic tomfoolery into the mix for a more quirky end result. Jonas Kopp is serious about bringing some punchy, un-budge-able beats into the fray for his version, but he knows just when to let an extra layer of hat rip out for those energy ramp ups, and likewise when to hold back. Advanced Human & Black Hats team up for the last remix, whipping up a more brooding dub tone that contrasts with the percussive focus of the other tracks.

hand-numbered limited 12": Project London/PLR 002
House/Minimal/Techno / �4.99
Project London scratch up their second release with fledging act Kashawar, who debuted earlier this year on Body Parts Records. It's an EP that would sound more at home in Estonia or Romania than the UK, with its extended minimalisms and dour atmosphere. The title track flirts with the idea of dub techno, but chooses techiness over subbier sonics; Pheek somehow managing introduce even more dour tones to his remix. A syncopated and underwater groove is brought to life by a party starting acid bass line in "Crossing The Line", while on the flip sub-aqueous textures in "Jetlag" amount to more lonesome and industrial minimalisms.

RAYDILLA: Mind Flight EP
12": Pulp Spain/PULP 01
House / �4.99
Sales Notes: The newly found PULP imprint is focussed on re-emerging the more classic vibes in deephouse. The first effort sets the example with a 4 track Voyage from RayDilla who has been around since back when the original cradles of house music (Chicago/Detroit) enjoyed their most mythical moments. Back in the 90's Raydilla joined Larry Heard for some production work and got published on one of house music's most respected outlets (Dance Mania).


MR G: Stripped Back EP
12": Phoenix G/PG 041

CUT HANDS: Madwoman
12": Downwards/DN 57
Techno / �5.49
INNERSPACE HALFLIFE: Village Hidden In The Sound
12": Finale Sessions/FS 016
House/Techno / �5.49
With releases so far this year on French labels Latency and Syncrophone, as well as a stellar entry into the Skudge White canon, the Innerspace Halflife duo of Hakim Murphy and Ike Release have already had the kind of year that puts most producers to shame, and now they return on Finale Sessions with Village Hidden In The Sound, featuring another trio of rough and ready analogue jack tracks rooted in Chicago house. The first two tracks see the duo at their most urgent, with the relentless stomp and thick, modulating bass of "Body Flicker" and flickering morse code-style pulse of "Fan Nation" amongst their most devastating for the dance floor, while "Outer Path" takes their trademark methodical approach, with a mid tempo groove that slowly finds itself unfurling into a treacle-thick combination of acid textures and dub chords.

clear vinyl 12": Grey Report Holland/GR 02
Techno / �4.99
Sales Notes: Functional Techno release featuring original tracks from Developer and Grey Report label head Adriana Lopez. Mastered by Chris McCormack at Blacklisted, London.

TRENCH, Jamie: Back Chat EP
12": Music Is Love/MIL 004

Creator Of Sensations


Underground Booking

We do it the old fashioned way, we send promo kits to the booking agents, meaning you will need, for each venue you want us to service, finished sound recordings on disc or vinyl, pictures & a printed bio; we don't do electronic press kits unless you put them on a disc, venue booking agents have better things to do than slog through thousands of emails, find your diamond in the rough, then go somewhere online to check out your band and think about booking you.

You need to have us seed potential venues no later than three months (six months is much better) prior to when you want to play a gig there. We get a 20% commission. If you expect a guarantee, you much meet the following requirements: Have music available in record stores (not just online, unless you are signed to a label and have sold a few hundred units in the region where the venue is located), have played in the region (200 mile radius from the venue) at least once in the two years prior to current date of solicitation, can meet the venue's further requirements to guarantee you a certain amount of money.

I do it two ways, Underground signed acts (I book you exclusively) and mass solicitations for unsigned acts.

For signing consideration, send promo kits to:

Underground Booking, 6412 Hwy 140, Adairsville, GA 30103 USA

Mass solicitations require that you send me a full promo kit for each venue you want to solicit; i.e. you want to solicit 100 clubs, you will need 100 full promo kits to send to me. For EACH solicitation you need to send me $10 (ten dollars) to cover my re-mailing and communications expenses for the United States; if I am soliciting venues outside of the United States, the fee is $20 per solicitation. Commissions are payable upon completion of the gig, with a maximum of 30 days accounts payable for touring bands. You don't pay me my commissions, not only will I never work with you again, I will hunt you down and take it out of your ass. If you think I am bullshitting, rip me off and you will find out. ALL mass solicitation bookings require you send me the kits to send out no later than 90 days (three months)PRIOR to the time you want to perform at the venue. Keep in mind many venues book AT LEAST 2-3 months in advance, so the more lead time you give me to solicit the venue, the better. Believe me, if you are booking a real tour, six months lead time is the minimum you want to solicit, and in those instances, even a year's advance time is common and a realistic time frame to develop an independent tour.

Non-exclusive mass solicitations do NOT guarantee you get gigs. All fees and press-kits are non-returnable.

Some of the venues I've worked with in the past.

To commemorate 10 years as one of Las Vegas� most influential punk bands, Peccadilloes, we are proud to release this 26 track double CD featuring a re-mastered version of their legendary album, Rumor Control, and the previously unreleased album, Chaos Show. Two full CDs for for the price of one!

Formed in 2003, Peccadilloes quickly became one of the most influential bands in the region and went on to gain thousands of fans around the world. They released 3 full length CDs, were featured on the A&E TV Show Inked, had features in local and national papers, and recorded the title track for the film One Long Day.

By the time they went their separate ways in 2008 Peccadilloes were considered by many to be the face of modern Vegas punk. If you�ve spent any time in the Las Vegas music scene you have certainly seen someone wearing a Peccadilloes t-shirt (if you don�t own one yourself) or you�ve heard them on the famous Double Down Saloon juke box. If you�re one of the lucky ones, you caught them live. Founding Peccadilloes members Jason, Sandy and James went on to form the punk trio The Gashers and released their debut CD, Law Is Not Order, on SquidHat Records in 2012. The most underrated punk band in the United States? You could certainly make that argument.

"The Elk" by metal act THR�NENKIND is released on Lifeforce

THR�NENKIND came to be in 2007 near Munich in the South of Germany. The band name could be translated as "child of tears" and was chosen as contrast to the "grim" and "clich�" names in black metal. The Germans are fascinated by the name's ambiguity, which can be discovered within their multilayered sound. Most of the members of THR�NENKIND are vegan and/or straight edge and share interests in the ideas of green anarchism, civilization critic and left-wing politics. The lyrics of their songs broach the issues of the relationship between humanity and nature, interpersonal relations, human society, green anarchism and the endless longing for freedom.

Having released a demo (2008) and a split-CD with Heretoir, "The Elk" is the first full-length for the quintet. The earlier recordings had more (post) black metal and shoegaze influences, while their LIFEFORCE RECORDS debut album contains touches of crust and hardcore punk. But "The Elk" is offering also five formidable instrumental post rock songs with a melancholic yet beautiful atmosphere, too. Some of the songs are slow and profound. Others are fast and unfold the ruthless power of (post) black metal.

Just like Profane Existence Magazine wrote: "THR�NENKIND is all about atmosphere, not blazing speed or brutality. They remind me a bit of WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM without the black metal, but have a lot in common with CELESTIIAL, a "woodland doom" band from the Mid-Western U.S." "The Elk" is a concept album telling the story of two siblings, who are on a roadtrip to their father�s funeral. They are faced with meeting old friends and memories, tragedy, hope, death and a mysterious "stranger". The focus of interest: pure emotion and intense impressions. The heart takes control...

Here's the sweat from the Rockstar Records HQ.

KOMPLIKATIONS � Step Forward 12� repressed & new record out in October!
QUADER � Analog means Prism Break LP out soon!
TRAINWRECK � new 12� out soon!


If you're not already in possession of that incredible debut STEP FORWARD 12�, here's your chance right now with the 2nd pressing. Still single sided vinyl with a beautiful silkscreen on the flipside but a differently colored silkscreen cover! KOMPLIKATIONS - POVERTY LP out in October!

But there's more! We're happy to announce a brand new LP titled POVERTY which will be out in october. If you liked that 12� you're gonna love this one. Dark synthesizers, pissed vocals (one track in german!) combined with the well-known straight drumming. Killer!


Did somebody say stoner rock? Well, here's a new band from our buddies in Cologne who managed to do some mischief with SE SICHELZECKEN. This new record however is an 8 song monster and has nothing in common with the aforementioned band. Think QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, think TOOL. It will grow on you! Limited to 100 copies and out soon.

TRAINWRECK � New Record coming soon!

Finally! In cooperation with THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS, we are going to release a new 12� by this hardcore outfit that doesn't need any further introduction. They will start recording in November so it shouldn't be too long until you'll get your hands on it!

Following the release of their most acclaimed album of their decade-long career, Deep Politics (2011), Grails revisited Black Tar Prophecies, their ever-expanding, enigmatic tapestry of eclectic experiments released in scarce limited editions that often disappear before most fans discover their existence. Black Tar Prophecies Vol's 4, 5 & 6 collects the last three volumes in the Black Tar series, originally released as a limited-edition 12", and a split LP with Finish psych-rock phenoms, Pharaoh Overlord. Exclusive to this collection is Volume 6, three previously unreleased tracks that run the gamut from found-sound collage to moody, piano-driven soundtracks to obscure erotic horror films that never existed (but should have). Available on triple-gatefold CD Digipak or Deluxe Gatefold 2xLP, the vinyl features four mind-blowing laser etchings � one on each side of the record, beginning where the grooves of the music end. It's pretty, and pretty unbelievable.

The time is coming very close now when the Underground Records brick & mortar record store in Adairsville will close. The State Of Georgia will be purchasing the land and at this time it is undecided if the store will move to another location. The online mailorder will eventually cease to operate after the walk-in closes though with much fewer items offered.

The majority of the stock in the brick & mortar will be sold. At this time all items in the store are at 20-50% off, so come in if you'd like some great deals on the remaining vinyl, cassettes and compact discs.

I'd like to thank everyone for their business, the brick and mortar never got off the ground really because just as soon as it opened I received notice the highway was coming through. So I never fully stocked the store or spent any money to build the business. Actually, for the 18 years I have been here this is the third time the "highway" has curtailed and ruined a business of mine at this location. The state is buying the properties now so I take it this time the road will actually be built.

For the remianing few months, I will have the store open mainly in the late afternoons when I have time away from tending the small farm I also have here, which will also be ended by the highway expansion; plus I have hundreds of hours of unfinished recordings to complete, hopefully, before I must tear my studio down, which is also at the location to be purchased. So if you're interested in buying some of the music from the store, I suggest visiting after 3pm Monday through Fridays. Have exact change also since I will not be able to make change on most purchases.

Due to time limitations concerning online services, I no longer will operate the Metal Mates online dating portal, located at It has already been closed.

Thanks for the memories! Underground Records is located at:

6410 Hwy 140
