Well let me start off by telling everyone that this is one of the most hectic summers I have ever experienced!  Summers are always a clusterfuck
for me, because I get so busy.  I own a wholesale distribution company that sells southwestern gifts, trinkets, and decor, as well as Native American
made jewelry, carvings, sculptures, and artwork.  The business primarily sells to gift shops throughout the southwest, and late spring through mid
summer, the gift shops are constantly placing orders.  I also work as a home comfort technician, testing, cleaning, sealing, and modifying ductwork,
as well as installing and repairing heating and cooling equipment.  As I'm sure most of you can imagine, summers in Phoenix are a very busy time for
anyone who works in my field.  

It has made it difficult to manage the label, and I want to say thank you to Johnny, Justin, Brian, Moe, and especially my daughter Nova for all of
their help.  Bad Stain Records signed a new recording artist two weeks ago, and we are proud to welcome "Daymes Rocket" to the Bad Stain family.  
The female fronted trio has an amazing style of rock, pop, and metal, and we are working on booking them various upcoming shows at the moment,
but we hope to release the band's first single in early 2020.  Bad Stain is also considering signing our very first rap artist, but I'll post information
regarding that in a few weeks.

I also wanted to address a few statements that I recently received regarding my Limited Edition, Custom Built, Signature Series Fender JagStang
Bass Guitar.  I have had a good portion of people upset about the high price tag of the instrument, and I want to apologize for that.  I understand
that it is a very expensive bass, and that many people can't afford to purchase it.  I tried to come up with a way to make it more affordable, but
unfortunately, I was unable to produce a high quality bass guitar at a low price.  The cost to manufacture my signature Fender JagStang Bass is
roughly $2,200, because it is built using Fender parts, and it has custom made pickups by Seymour Duncan.  While I was designing it, I tried using a
Squier Bronco Bass neck, because it only has 19 frets like the Fender Mustang Bass, and visually the only difference is that the Mustang has a black
dot on the 19th fret, and the Bronco does not.  A replacement neck for the Bronco is about $100-$130.  A replacement neck for the Mustang is about
$550-$650.  After testing both necks, I quickly refused to use the Bronco neck.  It does not have the same feel as the Mustang, and certain frets
buzzed slightly.  Every single time I tried to take a short cut, the result was the same.  So I decided that I would design it using all of the right
materials in order to ensure that the end product was something that I would be proud of, and stand behind.  I almost decided against having
Seymour Duncan design and manufacture my signature "White Gold" Bass Pickups, and just installed something that I would have thought sounded
good.  In retrospect, that would have been a huge mistake!  Seymour Duncan was able to design and manufacture the pickups to sound exactly like
what I wanted.  The pickups give the JagStang such a unique tone, producing the most extreme thick and heavy lows that snarl and boom like
thunder, and then they also produce the highest shimmering warm and bright high end tones that I've ever heard come from a bass guitar.  The
contrast is amazing, and it almost makes me feel like I have three bass guitars in one!  My signature JagStang Bass may be expensive, but i wanted
to make sure that it was a very high quality instrument.  I am very happy and proud to say that I feel as though my Signature JagStang Bass is one
of the top five best bass guitars that I have ever played.  I think the best bass guitar that I ever had a chance to play is the Fender Jaguar American
Standard, although I'm already designing my second signature bass, that I hope to release a few years down the road.  If I am able to pull off
everything I have planned with my next signature bass, and it ends up having all of the extra features I want, and it doesn't end up being too heavy,
and still plays as smooth as my current Signature Bass, I'm confident that I will be announcing my next signature bass as the greatest bass guitar
that I have ever played.  I guess that all I'm trying to say is that my Signature Fender JagStang Bass guitar is well built, diverse bass guitar, that
has a high price tag because it is a high quality instrument.  With that being said, I will be trying to come up with a payment plan option for
everyone out there that would like to own the bass, but can't afford to pay over $2,000 all at once.  I am going to try to put together a 24 month, 0%
interest payment plan in place that will have payments of about $100 per month.  I will post more info about that option after I have figured out the
details.

That's all for now kids!  Have a neat summer.....Chase

Here come the holidays........in just a month, Halloween will be launching off the holiday season, and that is my favorite time of year.  I'm really
excited about the last part of the year, and I'm happy with the way things have gone so far.  NON's new album, "From Buckeye To Beardsley" was
released a few weeks ago, and sales have actually been better than I had personally anticipated, and higher than what Bad Stain Records had
projected.  Two days ago, the first video from the album, "From Buckeye To Beardsley", was released, and is available to watch on YouTube at:
https://youtu.be/-78TrpaRR0I
You can also watch the video on the Official Bad Stain Records Facebook Page or the Official Numbers On Napkins Facebook Page.  The
video is for the song, "Burpin' Our Way to New Mexico", and is basically just a simple
slideshow of various images of the band performing live
shows, as well as photo shoots with the band, personal photos, promotional pictures, and old flyers.  We plan on releasing more videos
from the new album, and promise the next one will be a bit better.

Numbers On Napkins is also releasing a special limited edition EP CD later in the year, titled: "Ode to the Drink".  The "Ode to the
Drink" EP CD will feature four different versions of our popular Irish Folk inspired tune.  The CD will feature the original acoustic
version that was originally released on the full length album, "Borrachos, Chingasos, Y Rucas", and the Irish Punk version of the song
that was just recently released on "From Buckeye To Beardsley", and features guest vocalist Cris MoSkill (Frontman of Bad Stain
Recording Artists, ATM, or Ask The Man) singing a verse of the tune, and also features Ryan Butler (Guitarist for Landmine Marathon)
playing the viola.  The other two versions of the song are live recordings.  NON included the live version of the track that was
originally released on the limited edition and out of print, "Forget This, I'm Going to Tokyo" EP, and a previously unreleased acoustic
version of the track that NON performed live during an interview on ASU's "The Blaze" radio station.  The EP CD will have a limited
press run of just 300 copies, and will not be available through digital distribution.

I have a lot of goals for 2020, and I hope to release a new installment in my "Month" series, titled, "April".  I also plan on releasing a
box set of the entire catalog of music from my first band, "Dirty Laundry".  The project that I am possibly most excited about is a new
business I plan on starting called, BAD STAIN NOISE WEAPONS.  In 2018, I started a similar business called BAD STAIN
CUSTOM CREATIONS with a business partner and we manufactured a limited edition custom made guitar and bass.  Unfortunately, our
partnership dissolved......although it actually turned out to be a good thing in many ways.  Next year, I will attempt to design and
release a few products, and hopefully the business will gradually grow.  I have a lot of ideas, and I really think that many musicians will
quickly fall in love with the guitars and basses I plan on making, if I can find a way to keep the price reasonable.  My biggest problem
with starting the new business is a lack of funds, and that was one thing that my former business partner brought to the table that
would really benefit the business.  Still, I feel confident that I can make things work.  

I'll make sure to keep everyone updated with any new upcoming developments.

Hello everyone.  I just celebrated my 42nd birthday and I'm starting to wonder where the time has gone.  It seems like I'm actually moving at an
increased speed through time the older I get.  The new album, "From Buckeye To Beardsley" from my band, NUMBERS ON NAPKINS has been
gradually selling copies, which is a good thing, and the band released the second video from the album titled, "Summer Daze".  
CLICK HERE to check
out the video at the brand new Bad Stain Records YouTube page.  The new album is available locally at Stinkweeds or any Zia Records location, or
you can buy the CD online at
InterPunk.com, or at the Bad Stain Records Facebook Shop, or you can get it from Amazon, and many, many, more
record stores and online stores!  Fans can also download the album from over one hundred different websites, including Apple itunes, Amazon Music,
Deezer, Google Music Store, iHeartRadio, Napster, Pandora, Shazam, Spotify, Sound Exchange, YouTube, and many more!  NON will also be
releasing our limited edition "Ode to the Drink" EP, along with a music video in just a couple weeks.  Fans can pre-order the new EP starting on
November 29th at The Bad Stain Records Facebook Shop, and the video will be available on YouTube soon!  I want to thank everyone who has
supported the new album.

Bad Stain Records is currently working on releasing NON's new EP, as well as the upcoming single, "Do You Remember?", by Daymes Rocket.  This
will be the first release from Daymes Rocket, so I'm hoping that everyone out there shows the band some love and picks up the CD.  Daymes Rocket
plays a blend of Rock, Metal, Pop Punk, Glam Rock, and Alternative Rock with strong female fronted vocals, and I'm hoping that the label can release
the CD before 2020.

I wish everyone a happy Turkey Day, and a happy Black Friday to all those crazy nutjobs out there that actually go and participate in Black Friday.  
As for me.....FUCK THAT!  After I finish stuffing my face with turkey, I'll be in a coma and there is no way in hell that I'll be stepping foot into a
store on Black Friday.

Later Daze......
January 8th, 2020
We made it!  It's a new year, and I hope that everyone out there had a great New Year's Eve, and I wish that you all have a fulfilling year ahead!  
This year is starting off great for my band, Numbers On Napkins, who have been given an assortment of awards in several different magazines,
including Best Cover Song, Best Comeback Album, Best Punk Rock Album, and Best Pop Punk Song.  You can read all of the different articles in the
PRESS section.

I have so many goals to achieve this year, and I'm excited to see where 2020 takes us all.  There are some killer bands I want to show people, and I
have my own music I'm eager to get out into the world.  I'm also very excited about my new venture, Bad Stain Noise Weapons.  If all goes well, I
will have a new guitar to show all of you before the end of the year.  It will be the first time I introduce a Gibson into the collection, and for the
most part, it will be designed by my daughter Nova, who is a novice at guitar, but is wanting to take it more seriously and needs a good guitar for her
to continue learning with.  Nova has chosen a Gibson Les Paul model, and I will assist her with any questions.  I plan on making this guitar the
perfect guitar for those just starting to go to the next level, as well as experienced guitarists looking for a straight forward, solid instrument that is
high in quality and very collectible.  Expect more information as the year progresses, but that's all anyone gets for now.  Also, I ask that everyone
please subscribe to the new
Bad Stain Records YouTube Page  if you happen to have the time.  

Thank you all..............
