School Jerks played a couple shows a few weeks ago; one in Hamilton, ON and one in Toronto as part of the Not Dead Yet Muscular HC Festival. The shows were a good time and it was nice to have the 'tude in town for a few days. No plans right now for any SJ shows/tours but we'll definitely get some things in the works in the new year.
The12 inch has sold out of the first press (1,000) but there should still be copies floating around stores/distros and we also have a few copies here and in Rochester. Grave Mistake has done a 2nd press of 300 and those are now available through GM and from the band. Check out a review of the record on the awesome art4punks blog
Last week we were honoured to record an interview with living legend and longtime underground punk champion/guru Stephe Perry of Equalizing Distort at 89.5 CIUT, expect the interview to air or EXD and/or appear in print in an industry rag in the future. Interviews can be really weird but this one was a blast. We were all a little groggy from ol' I-balls 13th birthday the night before, hopefully we made sense...
In the meantime Kremlin will head out on a mid-west/east coast tour next week starting with a "kick-off" show at Luke's house (the "grunge pit"...) 10 Fee Place Dec. 14

Before the Kremlin record though Bad Vibrations will be releasing BAD-03 which will be a Bad Skin 7 inch. This project has been a long time coming and we're excited to be so close to having it finally reach the light of day. We've got test presses for this one so expect it out very soon. Anyone interested in HC punk in Toronto should be familiar with Bad Skin and know what to expect... the rest of the world prepare to meet Bad Skin
