Sean & Bryan (/Huge Pupils) met Conor (/Roy Orbitron) at the Basement Gallery in Ewing NJ probably sometime in 2009 -- long before the Pupils birthed their debut full-length (see: "Kings of Leonia") and before Conor became a dad (literally). Since the Gallery was shut down, Huge Pupils have continued to be stalwart purveyors of particularly New Jerseyan punk and noise music; they play anywhere that'll allow them, and they've recorded a number of wondrous things. Since leaving NJ punk band Alien Father and becoming a dad, Conor's written & recorded songs for Roy Orbitron... resulting in rock & roll magic that features 7 or so different musicians spread from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia to New Jersey to New York, their parts recorded on location later mixed by Conor to create a faux-supergroup of basement-dwelling freaks he admires (see: "Fluorescent Spells").
We'd like celebrate our friendship and continued musical proliferation by documenting a number of new songs on vinyl. One 18-minute side will be Huge Pupils and the other will be Roy Orbitron. But we need your help - financially, spiritually, and otherwise - to make this happen. Mostly financially... Pressing vinyl's a bit more expensive than a $100 DIY CD-R release via Staples and nimble fingers. We don't have metal parts, we don't have a record press, and we don't have any vinyl or any know-how... So we have to pay those that do. Won't you pitch in & make our dreams come true?
