Tummy Rock Records is a Missoula Punk rock label we are putting out a 7inch for King Elephant and Andrew Link & Metallica 3000
Tummy Rock Records is a small CD, CDR, and Tape label from Missoula, MT. We have been fiercely promoting bands and music since 2002. The label is operated by me, Tyson Ballew.
I want to release a 7 inch for King Elephant because they are awesome and their music is amazing. They work really hard and have a full length coming out on Minor Bird Records. They sing love songs about their small college town life. They are loud and fast and members of Goddammitboyhowdy!!!!, who you may have heard of.
Andrew Link and Metallica 3000 are some seriously rad Goof Punx from Portland Oregon. They are very community minded and politically sensitive without loosing their sense of fun and humor. Andrew is one of the tallest people I know, if I put togther a DIY basketball team I would want him on my team.
Why Kickstarter? Times are tough and I have a family. I work full time to support them and my record label is struggling. We scrape together everything we have to release music in a physical form with no guarantee of selling it.
This would be my first vinyl release because vinyl is expensive.
$249 for 200 7 inches from United Pressing
$301 for mastering and plating from Aardvark Mastering
$42 for 200 sleeves from Bags Unlimited
and there is a 10% free from Kickstarter and Amazon
With a whole lot of luck and your help, maybe this project will lead to more ambitious Tummy Rock projects in the future.
