“Bare Tones” Shipping Updates
GREAT GREAT news!
After all the hubbub and seemingly irreperable disasters surrounding the creation of our BARE TONES DVDs and BLURAYS, the manufacturers (who blundered epicly at the outset) went the extra mile to fix everything for us…
Thus, if you were not aware of it – or have not checked your emails in recent days – all “BARE TONES” BLURAYS and DVDs were finally shipped this past week.
And as far as we know, the vinyl pressings (originally promised for November, but delayed because of Covid – whatever the hell that means), are still slated for mid-January delivery. We will keep you posted.
We SO appreciate your patience.
And we happy – and HONORED – to report that not one person asked for a refund due to these delays, even though we offered full paybacks.
You cannot know how grateful we are for your loyalty and support.
Your Input: Witnessing History
This one is fun.
Any album… at any time…. What would it be????

PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Here is the artwork for the STILL unreleased Elm Treason Christmas EP “Treason’s Greetings.” (Maybe next year). Still, the artwork – our faces emblazen on christmas ornaments – has a kind of “Christmas Card” feel to it. It was supposed to be released three years ago… but we just haven’t the heart… yet.
