FUCKED UP Reports:

The David Christmas 7" is now up for pre-order HERE. Please go and grab it. For now it is just at Insound because it's the easiest way to move these things out in time for xmas, but expect it at a few stores in New York and Toronto after the 15th, and possibly a few other distros. We are also sending 100 to the UK that will be available from Rough Trade soon. Remember, ALL proceeds from this record are going to George Herman House - the records are retailing from all stores and from us for $10 - and these distros are giving us at least $9.00-$9.50 as a wholesale rate for each record, which means almost all of the money spent on each record will actually get to the charity. We also got donated studio time from Chris Hegge at Audiolab, and donated labour from Simone at Punchclock.

Special guests on the record include: James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Cole (Black Lips), Davey Havok (AFI), Kevin Peterson (What's Your Rupture?), Faris Rotter (The Horrors), Mike Fellows (Rites Of Spring), Matt Sweeney (Chavez/ Zwan), Dave One (Chromeo), Jacob Thiele (The Faint), Morag and Ursula, Jay Reatard, Dan Romano (Attack In Black), Trevor Keith (Face To Face), Jason Green (Panthers/ Orchid), Jerry A. (Poison Idea), Shenae Grimes (Degrassi: The Next Generation), Scott Vogel (Terror) and Nelly Furtado.

We are doing all we can to make it possible for everyone who orders or buys one of these to have it before December 225th, because that's a big day apparently. Apart from Insound, the easiest way to make that happen for yourself is to get it from us on Dec 15th - here is some more info about that action packed weekend:
