Bama's most primitive garage rock, wildest reverb drenched surf riffs, and the fastest frantic punk songs on ONE RECORD!

We're raising funds to put out a Compilation Record featuring some of the most primitive Garage Rock & Roll, the wildest reverb drenched Surf riffs, and the fastest frantic Punk songs coming out of Alabama right now!

No more flipping through stacks of records to find your favorite Alabama bands. Now you can just throw one record on the platter, crank it to 11, and let the house party begin! We got a roster of bands that'll make you stomp, shimmy, and shake, including the likes of:

Pine Hill Haints, Daikaiju, The Nightmare Boyzzz, Rise Up Howling Werewolf, Hibachi Stranglers, Bazooka, Really Loud Hamburgers, Kill Baby...Kill!, Nowhere Squares,The Original Shake Charmers, Mouse Teeth, Thee Crown Imperials, and Piss Shivers

13 Ear Pounding Tracks!! Could it get any better? It can! Because if you donate a minimum of $5 you can have a say in the last remaining spots on the record. We will put as many bands as we can cram onto this 12” piece of plastic, so donate and nominate any Alabama-based band you think worthy of this compilation.

The best part? We are not taking a dime! We're going to press as many records as you make possible, and give those not pre-sold to the bands. Free. So they can sell them. For 100% profit. That's right. Your money is going directly to provide killer bands with killer merch. Merch they can sell to put gas in their tank. Merch they can use to book shows. Merch that will raise awareness as far as these comps travel!

There's not much apart from that. We wanna press as many albums as possible. If we hit our minimum, we will proudly distribute a fine record in a sleeve so crappy it'd make The Mummies proud. If we do a bit better than that, though, we'll be upping the ante: Full-on gatefold cover with colored vinyl. Better than that? Massive, Double disc compilation of every damn thing we can cram on it. Hell, if things go well enough we might just do a picture disc.

So help bring this record to life by donating to the music scene that helps to make our state the beautiful monster that it is.

The Records will be pressed with:

  • 100 on Colored Vinyl ( 50 Handmade Covers, and 50 Regular Covers) Kickstarter donors get dibs on all of the colored vinyl until it sells out!
  • The Rest of the Pressing will be Black Vinyl. Vinyl so black you will ask yourself, 'How much more black could this be?' And the answer is None. None more black.
  • Donations of 50 bucks or more reserves you a test pressing with a handmade cover! You will get to hear the record weeks before it hits stores!
  • 5 Test Pressings will be made with One-of-a-kind Original Artwork by 5 different Alabama Artists.
