Back in 2005 Greenhouse Effect released a record called Columbus or Bust right around the same time that 1988 came out.  Because we wanted to try to get better distribution situation for the record we licensed it to a label called Raptivism records.  Boy was that a bad idea.  Basically, they didn’t do anything they were supposed to do and looking back we would’ve been better off releasing this album ourselves.

Columbus or Bust has been out of print for a very long time (mostly because we didnt want to risk them pursuing us legally) but as far as I know Raptivism isn’t even in business anymore, so we think its high time this record was released properly.  So, in January we will be rereleasing a delux version of the Columbus or Bust.  It will be available for the first time Tuesday January 26th on iTunes, and the delux 2CD version will ship from our site on the 26th.  We will also release the promo version on the 26th.

The delux version will include revised artwork, all instrumentals, as well as a 11×17 poster, sticker, and maybe even some other promo that’s not listed yet.  For now check out the below song to get a taste of what the album sounds like:

Had server problems last week that kind of took me out of the rhythm of blogging, but I’m back now. This week i will pick up where i left off. I figure i would start this week off with some music. Everybody has a youtube channel except me, so now I have one. I haven’t quite figured out what I’m gonna put on mine yet, but i figure posting one beat every week couldn’t hurt. So here is the beat of the week for this week:

Last Night = Bugged Out

(originally written dec 19th, 2008)

i had to tell this story…

so last night me and seance are at ladies 80s drinking beer, waiting to pass out some flyers for the new years show. we’re off in the cut standing right between the two bathrooms kickin it and this little ass dude walks up and just posts up next to us. dude was looking real serious. so we keep talking and clowning and dude is still there. dude is like “man, yall clowning over here!” but he still had that serious look in his face..real focused. at first i thought he might have thought we were in line for the bathroom, so i was like “we’re not in line for the bathroom” just so dude would know. and little dude is like “nah, i’m not going in the bathroom, i’m waiting on somebody to come out. i gotta handle some shit”. So i’m like “damn, you look real serious, is it about to go down?” and he’s like “yeah man, a muthafucka disrespected me and I’m about to handle that. hes in the bathroom, so i’m gonna wait for him to come out and see whats up.” so me and seance are like cool, we’re gonna post up here because this shit is about to get entertaining.
