News, Tour, ETC

Hey y'all, 

Reverend Loose Morals are heading out on a short tour in November, check the kick ass poster by Keith Rosson.  We get to play with some fine folks, including our friends Callow, Brian Stevens, Bryan McPherson, Sons of Jefferson and many others.  It's gonna be fun!

We are grateful to the folks hosting us at shows, particularly ROY DEAN at BOUND FOR GLORY in Modesto, CA and the Fisher clan in Grants Pass.  What sweethearts!

I am attending the Earth At Risk event in Berkeley, CA on Sunday November 13.  Among the speakers are Arundhati Roy, Aric McBay, Lierre Kieth, Stephanie McMillan and Derrick Jensen, all of whom I've distro'd books, DVD's, CD's and/or comics from.  They are also some of the greatest thinkers and people on the planet.  The event is only $10, so think about attending too!

We also have a slew of new releases to announce:

NXNW 09 - Reverend Loose Morals & the Confederacy of Dunces - CD, cassette & LP (coming soon!)

NXNW 10 - Zombie House Chronicles: Please Don't Make the Quiet Bands Play Last Compilation - cassette (coming soon!)

NXNW 11 - 4 way split cassette w/ Liz Snyder, Julie Karr, Callow, Gun Room Melodies (coming soon!)

NXNW 12 - Order Of The Gash - Full Length Cassette (coming soon!)

NXNW 13 - 4 way split cassette w/ The Pillowfights!, Tuck and Roll, Abolitionist, Danger Death Ray - Split Release w/ 1859 Records (coming soon!)

We are over the moon to be a part of each of these releases and will have more information on each, shortly.  We might even have a few surprises up our sleeves to help these projects into the wild.  Stay tuned!

We've updated the Allies page to include the folks involved in these releases with links to their music pages.  

We've also started a distro, so if you wanna have something distro'd by NXNW, get in touch.

Thanks y'all!

North by Northwest Records' online home...

Welcome. You are here.  

We've got this here fancy new site because of Walker Janelle who not only does fantastic things with html, but also plays the drums like a super-humyn-robot-rock-machine.

Coming soon is the new Tuck and Roll EP, sometime in May.  Otherwise, take a look, take a listen.  More to come...

Also, on a related note...please watch the film END:CIV and then go take a walk outside, listen to the birds, smell the spring blossoms and think about how we can take down the mess humyns have made for themselves and the entire planet.
