We are still operating at a 10 person max capacity with properly worn mask required (over nose and mouth tight to face) for the duration of the visit and we appreciate the patience of those who have waited in line to get in (can’t mention that enough).  Weekends can get hectic and you should expect to see a line. Monday-Thursday generally are more relaxed.  Hand sanitizer at the door and gloves available for those who want them. This won’t change for the foreseeable future, but hopefully the weather will get better! 

RSR PC 041 Amnesiac, Mahoney & Danny

Amnesiac’s Mahoney and Danny are our guests this month on the podcast. We talk about how much Danny worships the ground Maynard walks on and that’s pretty much it (this is sarcastic and you’ll get it when you listen).  We talk about how Amnesiac came about as a band and what it’s like to be a band right now in the time of Covid 19. We, as usual, start it off by talking about the music we’re listening to!

We talk about Gene Simmons and Kiss and also Scorpions.  Honestly, way too much talk about Puscifer, but it’s an entertaining episode so stop reading this and just listen.

RSR PC 039 Favorites of 2020 Episode

Happy New Year!

On this episode we talk about our favorite releases of 2020. Josh and Rick talk amongst themselves including a list submitted by Caren.  This is our first episode back in action since beginning our move and we glory in the reverb of the new big space!

Below you’ll find our lists. The show follows the lists in the order presented (Caren has some extra content shown here not mentioned on the show). The opening song is Space Camp song that plays a little more later on.

Beyond what we loved from other labels this year we also released 3 records this year that we’re still stoked on; the Space Camp, Landing / Headroom and Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean records all came out great and if you haven’t yet please do check them out! Available in our Big Cartel and in our Discogs shops.
