Independent record label out of CT.

Harold’s Hooligans(of the week):

Band: Aviator

Song: Denial Is Despondency

From T.J. Copello(vocals):

"This song was written about a close friend who, at the time, was going through a pretty serious identity crisis and depression. Nearly everything described in the song was exactly as I and others observed through the course of a few months before he moved away. I envisioned his apartment, his clothes, his actions, his habits. I envisioned what others had said about him. I told the story in the first person, even though there was no way anyone could ever know what was going on inside his head but him. I did this for a reason. Because to me, it was almost like he was always judging himself as if he were someone else observing his behavior. I wrote what other people thought and felt as a result of his actions, through his eyes. What’s sort of funny about this song was that, at the time I didn’t realize it was sort of foreshadowing the events in my life to come over the next couple years, some I’m still dealing with currently. When I first wrote it, it screamed my friends name, likeness, situation. Now, whenever I play it back, I just see my own."

Harold’s Hooligans(of the week):

Band: The Dirty Looks

Song: Catholic Radio

From Chris LaRocque(guitars/vocals):

We wrote Catholic Radio right as we were starting to wrap up a full length we had been recording for 4 months. The song was pretty drastically different from what we had been recording and in all honesty felt like a way better fit to all of us than what we had been recording, making it the catalyst for our decision to scrap what we had been doing and start over with that song as our guide for how we wanted to shape up what became the EP we’re about to put out. I wrote three or four different versions of lyrics for the song before we went in to record the EP but ultimately wasn’t happy with any of them, however it worked out perfectly that my girlfriend at the time and I broke up right when we started recording so that made finishing up the lyrics pretty easy.

"Hey BillJim, I’d reallylike to get a copy of your chapbook, but I’d also like to help support an independently run record label, so that they can continue to release awesome records - y’know, from bands such as Aviator, Au Revoir, Deathdealer, Piss Poor, and Do No Harm? HOW MIGHT I DO SUCH A THING???”
Good news, everybody! The folks that run Heads UP Records will very soon be distributing my book through their online store! I just shipped a handful of copies to them, so if you’d like to snag one AND help support not just one grumpy-ass poet, but a whole slew of awesome artists, you totally can! 

These will be up in the store later this week! William James is a great dude and writes down some moving stuff. Pick one up if you enjoy reading, crying, or doing of those both at the same time.

I’d unmake every plan if I could leave with you. I won’t be worth a thing if I leave this place, but it’s not a home. The first thing you build is never right, and it’s rarely safe. 

While patiently questioning these decrepit surroundings, I have been disproven at every turn. 

Let us not be found until our sun-bleached bones say, “We are at peace.”
