The Love of Rock, and all its Environs

My friend and bandmate Rob Jones, as many of you know, runs a Portland label called Jealous Butcher Records. http://jealousbutcher.com/
Rob is a one-man, record-making, project-creating, music-recording, poster-screening wonder. He will dream up a thoroughly ambitious idea (Crabs cover album? Oswald Five-O singles compilation? Led Zeppelin tribute record? ) and then forge full-steam ahead until it comes true. Writing music, recording it, mixing it, then bringing in all of his friends to play mandolins, trumpets, zithers and glockenspiels. And then there is the cover art. A computer whiz, Rob creates one-of-a-kind designs on his trusty laptop, then burns the necessary silkscreens, and gets to work in his basement, hand-screening all of the covers, and all of the posters. The results? Unbelievably beautiful, world-class pieces of art. Lush collections of music with covers you can feel the ink on. Go to his website to see the catalog of projects he has for sale, and treat yourself to something special.
