|9-9-17 A New Addition to the Family
I want to announce that the greatest addition to my family in history is now joining the Bad Stain
family. My daughter Nova is helping the label and becoming our new Social Media Manager. She is
finally ready to start learning the music business, and I imagine it won't be long before she is
running the whole label with a staff of her friends signing new talents....lol. Get ready for some

1-2-15 Bad Stain Records 20th Anniversary!
That's right! 20 years. 2 decades. I can't believe that it has been that long. Sure, the label
hasn't done shit in the past few years, but I'm still very happy and proud that I was able to help out
so many amazing bands. Well......not just me. I can't take all of the credit. I have had some amazing
people helping me in the past. Thanks to all of the bands that became a part of the Bad Stain
family. Thanks to Kris and Kelly Johnson who put their tax returns together with mine to start the
label 20 years ago, and thanks to them both for continuing to be a part of the label and helping out
over the years. Thanks to Moe Money, Tad Gurthman, Matt Martini, Sean "40 Man" Johnson,
Brandon "B-Hound" Jamison, "Tokyo" Billy Jacoby and Judith Jacoby, Jen "Cornpick" Gornick, Troy,
"Yort" Bueno, Mel Lemaster, Johnny Laundromat, Colleen Benedict, Cris "MoSkill", Justin Bleach,
"Mohawk" Bryan, Jon "Jones" Woodruff, and everyone who has helped with the label over the years.
I appreciate all of the support over the years.
5-19-14 Just Checking In.....
I wish I had some actual news, considering there hasn't been anything posted in over 15 months, but
the truth is that not much has been happening with the label. We are still selling albums, although
sales are very slow. We probably sell around five or six albums a month........if that. We currently
have no plans of signing any new artists, and we have all been focused on our families and our jobs.
It's funny, having to work for someone now. I mean, I have had plenty of jobs in the past, but I was
self employed for so many years, I miss being able to be the one in charge. Although, I will admit
that when I was self employed I worked way more than I do now, and I always had work on my mind
at all times. So mentally it is much better, and I work 8-16 hours per day now, compared to 12-24
hours per day before. I will admit that physically I work much harder now, crawling around in
fiberglass through 170 degree attics and installing new air conditioners and furnaces. I can really
tell that I'm getting older, as it never seemed that hard when I was younger, and now I feel
exhausted after a hard long day. I do get the chance to spend tons of time with my amazing and
beautiful daughter, as well as my lovely wife......and that makes it all worth it. Rest assured, the
label may not be doing much at the moment, but Bad Stain will make a return in the near
future.......well.........maybe 3 or 4 more years......we'll have to wait and see.

2-3-13 Numbers On Napkins Announces Hiatus
For nearly a decade, Numbers On Napkins has been a huge part of the label, as well as my life. The
thing is, that the band takes up a lot of time. We have performed over 200 shows, practiced six
hours per day, sometimes three or four times per week. Dozens of hours in the recording studio.
Hundreds of hours, locked up in the office working on flyers, web design, social media sites, booking
shows, and writing new material. It's time away from our families, and Tad, Moe and I just feel as
though we need to focus on our kids for the next few years. These are years that we can never get
back, and I personally have already missed out on so much of my own daughter's life, and Tad and
Moe don't want to have the regrets that I feel at times. It can be hard touring, and driving back
to Phoenix all night to see your daughter in a beauty pagent, just to drive all the way back to play
another show, staying up over 40 hours. Ahhhh....so many good memories. So Numbers On Napkins
will be playing their last show on Saint Patty's Day, and we'll see everyone again in about 5 or 10
years when our kids are a bit older and so focused with their own friends and bands that they don't
want to have anything to do with us. Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past
decade. We appreciate all of you!
1-8-12 Bad Stain downsizes and adjusts for change
Well, as many of you know, the music industry has changed a lot over the years. Most people rarely
buy CD's anymore, and everyone downloads music now. I myself still love having a CD. I enjoy having
something in my hand, and I love the packaging because it allows me to read lyrics and check out the
Thank You list for any bands I'm unaware of. The truth is that I don't even buy CD's very often
anymore. I may get 5 or 6 a year from bands that I really like, and of course I get CD's from local
bands, but that's it. The change in the music industry has meant that Bad Stain has had to change
as well. The label keeps getter smaller and smaller, and once again I was forced to say goodbye to
some good friends and great employees. We wish everyone well, and are ready to see what 2012
has in store for us.

Congrats to the winners of the 10-10-10 contest!
You should be receiving your prizes this week. After checking our inventory, we have discovered
that we are all out of the "Punk til ya Poop" compilation CD's. The album has sold over 15,000
copies, and is the best selling release on Bad Stain. We have decided not to repress the album, as
many of the bands on the CD are no longer together, and we feel the album has run its course. For
anyone looking for a copy, there may be some available at Interpunk.Com or at your favorite local
