Announcing Our First Release: Patrick Goddard - Apparition
Available February 5th, 2019, Patrick Goddard - Apparition is a limited edition 7 inch single pressed on white vinyl at Erika Records in Buena Park, CA. It’s a post-punk-with-horns-and-vintage-keyboards smash hit! Also dub. Weird.
The story of this single is really the story about making this label. I’ve known Patrick since the 3rd grade. We grew up in Aptos and Santa Cruz together. This is California on the Monterey Bay, south of San Francisco and Silicon Valley. The eighties. Kids surfed and skated and ate candy and read comic books. That’s about it. Pat and I did these things but we also listened to a lot of music. I think our love of music began with being corrupted by hearing Dr. Demento. We would sleep over at each others houses on Sunday nights during the summer and tune into KFAT on a transistor radio. We discovered the classics like Weird Al and Barnes and Barnes, but also Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and The Residents.
