now offering printed matter...

17.5" x 22.5" screen printed poster by Erin Allen
Pictured above is the new poster we now offer. The first in what we hope will be an on going series. The idea being that we exploit the imagination and skilled labor of our own, Erin Allen, to assist with funding future releases. This first poster is a reproduction of a Daily Gil cartoon that appeared originally in the Chicago-based punk fanzine, No Friends. It is recommended that you hang the poster near other objects as it will never appear to be level (this drove our photographer crazy).
For 10 dollars (plus shipping and handling) we will mail you a poster in a tube either in the shape of a cylinder or a prism.  
$10.oo + $4.oo postage/packaging

Straight Crimes receives "Best Band" hashtag.... A Career First!

A post shared by tape eraser (@serioushype) on

And the band appears to be ELATED with such wonderful news! While hard at work mastering and sequencing their upcoming cassette tape "Excellent Selections Live", they are stocking local Oakland, CA record and cassette shops with their most recent effort, "Jams, With Microphone. 2017", which has garnished word-of-mouth unwritten compliments from many listeners. I'm in the garden right now thinking of it. Really. You can listen to and order the "Jams, With Microphone. 2017" tape here in our catalogue section or visit this link HERE to order... STAY TUNED & STAY HYPED

Hear I am with a film for one of some of the new posters I'll be selling through this fine blog called fine concepts. Be sure to visit the links section I just put up on the Right hand side--->

A new Straight Crimes song is out now on a 10 CD box set compilation put out by Rat Skin Records. We got Nerve Beats Tour dates coming soon.

I hate paper work! But somehow we are getting those records in well before the end of 2017.  The Trashies inserts are eventually getting photocopied and further down the release rumor mill we have some possible cassettes formulating by Straight Crimes, Wall and Others.  Stay tuned to this amazing blog. Please.
