Soft Abuse t-shirts by Shayde Sartin are here!

Our man Shayde Sartin sent a big batch of drawings a long while back, and it became clear that the time had finally come to print some Soft Abuse t-shirts. These are printed on Ultra Cotton Gildan shirts (100% cotton) by Tee Squared in Northeast Minneapolis, and are available in 'Light Blue' and 'Yellow Haze.' These are limited, and may be garnished with paint if you so desire.

Available in unisex S, M, L and XL. Please specify color & size when ordering (use the 'notes' field in Paypal). Click here to order.

Pumice puffs through Europe

Good ol' Stefan Neville (AKA Pumice) is out on the road in Europe after a string of dates in Japan. The road warrior has quite a bit planned for 2008, including another visit to the USA for gigs in late summer. First things first, though, and that's his current European jaunt, which finds him zig-zagging across the continent & sharing bills with everyone from Los Llamarada to Lydia Lunch. If you're able, go & see him and fall in love, and buy him a pint while you're at it.

More dates are coming together here & there, and will be posted as confirmed. His MySpace page is another good spot to look for tour dates (and other bits of info).
