Hey everybody! It’s been a minute since i’ve posted up, but it’s because we’ve been very busy working on projects and getting things in motion for the future. Who ever thought a record label could be so much work?!

First the good news… ALL of our records should be here within the next few weeks. The delays were due to 1) a flaw in the stampers for the Pilfers vinyl and 2) RSD 2012, but the error has was corrected and the pressing plants are all back to normal admid the chaos of vinyl junkies and strict deadlines. How much money did YOU spend this year??? I look forward to the opportunity to participate in a release in the future.

To refresh your head, our first releases are THE PIETASTERS, THE PILFERS, SUBURBAN LEGENDS, and EDNA’S GOLDFISH!!! We are incredibly proud to bring you these four records, on vinyl for the first time, and look forward to putting many more awesome releases into your hands.

Regarding submissions, there are several artists who have expressed an interest in releasing music with ICR, and we are honored and delighted at the responses we’ve received. If you have any artists or bands you’d like to submit, feel free to send stuff over and i’ll check it out. Please… NO MP3’s in the email 🙂

Lastly, ICM is no longer handling managerial duties for Charley Orlando, but we will be helping him with publicity needs as they occur.  Make sure to catch him on his next run of dates and add him up on Facebook.

Won’t be long, folks… our first releases are so close, I can almost smell the wax.

Listen to more music. Go to more shows. Support your scene(s).

Ever feel like a piece of your childhood was taken away from you?

Instant Classic Records would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of legendary bassist Lloyd Brevett of The Skatalites and Adam “MCA” Yauch from The Beastie Boys.

I would like to thank them for their outstanding contributions to music and their incredible influence on culture. At the end of the day, we are all human… No one gets out of this life alive. The most important thing to do now is make sure their music lives on.

So crack a beer, crank your stereo, and celebrate their creations!

Rest in Peace, guys.
