Howie woke up one day and thought we haven’t done a label comp in 30 years and I said, wot the hell - why not? Thus: Monkey Business Mach II Howie’s Picks - a compendium of recent mostly 2015 releases. The release is download only, pay what you want, including FREE!
Is this just a clever marketing ploy to expose humans to our recent music so they will go nuts and buy up catalog? Of course it is. Did we just steal the idea from Cuniform Records who has done this the last couple years? Uh, probably (that’s okay – we “borrowed” our Album of the Month (AotM) from Julian Cope’s Head Heritage site years ago). So what?
Here’s Howie’s favorites – collect them all!
