Damnably April News-Slaughter

Hi all,

Here’s April’s Damnably News!

We just  had a couple special releases in Record Shop Day that seem to have sold-out fast, namely Shonen Knife ‘s  ‘Overdrive’ (Bottle Green 12′) & American Werewolf Academy’s ‘Edge Of The Bed’ (Marlbled Olive 7′).
We don’t have any more of those but we have a few test pressings that we will give away as prizes soon too.
