File 13 Records streaming 50 albums

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2012 at 3:22 PM



Here's something interesting that your trusty Times scribes stumbled across the other day while researching for a story: File 13 Records — originally started in Little Rock back in 1989 — is streaming 50 albums from its catalog right over here. You can download them for $7 apiece if you are so inclined.

Of course, the label long ago left its hometown, going on to release albums from avant weirdos Need New Body and Suicide mastermind Martin Rev, among many others. The label's been based in Chicago for some time, after a lengthy stint in Philadelphia.

There are a couple of Arkansas bands on there right now. Chino Horde's self-titled long-player is available, as is Shake Ray Turbine's "The Sauce of Solution."

No word yet on the Numbskullz demo, Towncraft comp or the Benchmark or Class of 84 7"s, but the File 13 folks have been adding new stuff over the last few weeks, so maybe we can look forward to blasting the Full Service Quartet record soon.

  • The fall of Boehner

    Nothing so became U.S. Rep. John Boehner's tenure as speaker of the House as his manner of leaving it. Subjectively speaking, he has never appeared to believe very much of the nonsense his position required him to utter. An old school politician who literally grew up working in the family bar, his conservatism is of the traditional Midwestern kind — more Bob Dole, say, than Ted Cruz.
