What a week!!! Wow. Too much to mention, all amazing!! Going to have to let the photos speak for themselves again this week! Solid releases all across the board… over 50 titles out the door… a day late (thanks to a delay from the airline) but everything’s all done up and ready for transit! Beauty!
This week’s top Record of the Week honors have to go to our friends Voetsek and Tank Crimes… This baby looks STELLAR!! With you guys out in Europe about to pick up your copies from the plant I’m jealous that I dont get to see your faces looking at these for the first time… If anyone else gets to do it, I’m glad it’s gonna be our Czech Pirates!! Thanks for the undying support on all fronts. Keep up all the great work. You guys work hard and deserve an amazing record like this peddle all over the world!!
