6-1-2020        Release Dates Change Again and a New Chase Stain Interview.
Well, once again we are changing release dates for upcoming albums.  The new ten inch vinyl record,
"Mill Avenue", from Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners will now hit stores on 6-5-2020, and
pre-order sales start today!  So you can pre-order your copy now!  Daisy Moonshine and The City
Boys will be releasing their ten inch record on July 10th, 2020, and pre-order starts on 7/4/2020.

Bad Stain President, Chase Stain, was interviewed a couple weeks ago and the interview is being
featured in the June issue of "Valley Frequencies".  The interview was so long that it has been
separated into three parts, and you can read part one by picking up a copy of the fanzine, or by
checking out Chase Stain's official website.  
CLICK HERE to read part 1 of the interview.

Last, Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners have made some unique changes to their line up.  
Drummer Steven Starch has had to leave the band for personal issues, and "The Fab" Rick
Softener has changed from bass and is now the bands drummer.  The new bassist for the band is
Justin Bleach, who has played with frontman Johnny Laundromat in several of his bands, including
Dirty Laundry.  Both members have stated that they are excited to be working together again.

5-23-2020        Release Dates Announced.....Delayed....All of that Shit.
We regret to inform everyone that the new limited edition ten inch record, "Mill Avenue", from
Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners has been delayed until July of 2020.  Due to the
Stay-At-Home Order that was put into place virtually across all fifty states, Bad Stain has delayed
releasing several albums on the label.  "Mill Avenue" will now be available on 7/17/2020, and
available to pre-order on July 10th.  Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys have also announced that the
release date of the bands debut record will be July 24th, with pre-order starting on July 17th.

Both bands have already started working on writing and recording material for the follow up to
their albums, and both bands have decided to record their albums at The Distortion Factory in
Glendale, AZ.  The City Boys guitarist, Charlie Riot, is engineering and producing both albums, and
has relocated to Phoenix for the next three or four months, in order to spend as much time as
possible working alongside the bands.  We will announce more information about the recording
process as it becomes available.

3-15-2020        Paranoid Morons Across the U.S. Force Tour Cancellations, Official
Release Date for "Mill Avenue" Announced, and More Worthless Information
Due to the mass paranoia surrounding the Corona Virus, we are saddened to announce that all tours
and future shows from all Bad Stain Recording Artists have been cancelled.  We will be working
with our artists to reschedule as many of the shows as possible, and we will keep everyone up to
date with all future details.

Bad Stain Recording Artists, Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners, have officially announced the
release date for the bands upcoming ten inch vinyl record, "Mill Avenue".  The new record will hit
stores on May 15th, 2020, although fans can choose to pre-order the record if they prefer,
starting on May 8th, 2020.  I just want to point out that it's a little funny that Johnny Laundromat
and The Drycleaners chose to name their new album, "Mill Avenue"..........Numbers On Napkins just
released their new album, "From Buckeye To Beardsley", and it feels like Johnny and The
Drycleaners may have got a bit of inspiration from NON when naming their new album...........  So in
other words, Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners are copycats!

We also wanted to let everyone know that Justin Bleach can be a bit stupid at times, and last
month he informed everyone that we only had 12 copies of the "Punk til ya Puke" compilation CD
remaining, and that it was the only volume in the "Punk til ya..." series still in print.  Justin was
correct when he announced that we only had 12 copies left, although he must have forgotten about
the "Punk til ya Pass-Out" compilation CD, because we currently have hundreds of copies of that
album still available!  In any case, I want to let everyone know that we only have 7 copies of "Punk
til ya Puke" remaining, and the CD will not be repressed.  In addition, last month we ended up selling
the last few copies of the 946 West / Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners split ten inch
record.  The record was a limited edition release, and is no longer available.

Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys recorded pre-production material for the bands debut album,
and are currently polishing up their songs and preparing to start recording material for the album.  
The band hopes to start recording their debut release within the next few weeks.

Last, I wanted to let everyone know that after suffering with stomach cramps, and what I had
thought was a stomach virus for several weeks, I finally decided to check my self into the ER
earlier last week.  I ended up having to have emergency surgery, and the doctor's removed my gall
bladder.  I'm feeling much better, although it will take me another week or two before I'm fully
healed.  Over the next two weeks, I ask that everyone please allow me some time to get back to
them if you send me an email, or text or call me.

2-24-2020        Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys Hit the Studio, and "Mill Avenue" gets
sent to be manufactured
Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys surprised everyone when they announced that they are entering
the studio to start recording material for the bands debut release.  Daisy Moonshine recently
parted ways from her previous project, Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers, and in just six
weeks, her new band has written enough material to start the recording process.  Daisy Moonshine
and The City Boys are hoping to release a ten inch record with thirteen tracks on Bad Stain by the
Fall of 2020.

Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners have completed recording and mixing their upcoming ten
inch record, and the master copy was sent out for mastering a few days ago.  The bands new record,
"Mill Avenue", should be mastered and fully ready to be sent to press within the next week!  The
band plans on announcing an official release date for their new record sometime in the next two or
three weeks, so check back for upcoming info, or visit us on social media.......with that being said,
please follow us on Instagram, subscribe to our new YouTube channel, and/or like us on FaceBook!

We also wanted to let everyone know that we have nearly sold out of the Johnny Laundromat and
The Drycleaners and 946 West split ten inch record, and we currently only have nine copies left!  
We also realized that we only have twelve remaining copies of the "Punk til ya Puke" compilation CD.  
"Punk til ya Puke" was the first installment in the "Punk til ya....." series of compilations, and was the
only remaining volume still available, as all of the other compilations are now out of print.  
Considering that none of the bands featured on "Punk til ya Puke" are currently active and
performing, we see no reason to repress the CD, and this will be the final pressing.  So we suggest
that anyone who wants a copy of either album make their purchase fast!

2-8-2020        Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners Announce Title of Upcoming Album
Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners spent the last four weekends at The Distortion Factory in
Glendale, AZ recording the music for their new upcoming album.  The band recorded eleven songs
for the new release, and decided to name the new album, "Mill Avenue".  They chose to release the
songs on ten inch vinyl, with a limited pressing of only 1,800 copies.  The band has completed laying
down all of the tracks, although still need to get guest vocal tracks from fellow Bad Stain
Recording Artists Chase Stain, and Daisy Moonshine, as well as Megan Tyce.  The band hopes to
release the album this spring.

2-1-2020        Bad Stain FINALLY starts an Instagram Page, Johnny Laundromat and the
Drycleaners / 946 West Split Record nearly gone, and birthday wishes to our Vice President
We are proud to announce that we just started up the Official Bad Stain Records Instagram Page,
located at
www.Instagram.com/OfficialBadStain.  We should have started an Instagram Account
years ago, but it was just one of those things that nobody got around to.........that is until our lovely
and talented Vice President and Head of Social Media insisted that it become a priority.  So please
take a minute to click the link and follow us on Instagram.

A few weeks ago, we announced that Bad Stain Recording Artists, 946 West, had decided to call it
quits, primarily due to creative differences between the band members.  After the announcement,
the bands only release on the label, the 946 West / Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners Split
ten inch record, started selling at a rapid pace.  The split ten inch record is a special collector's
edition record with a limited press run of only 2,000 copies.  As of the beginning of February, we
currently only have 32 copies of the record remaining!  In addition, all of the songs are exclusive to
the record and are not available to download legally anywhere online!  So once the record sells out
of copies, it's gone suckas!  So order a copy quick if you haven't got your copy yet.

Last, we all want to say Happy Birthday to our Vice President, Nova Kaine Stain.  Nova has been
working with her father to help the label in a variety of ways, and is also helping to design a special
custom made Gibson Les Paul guitar for Bad Stain Noise Weapons.  The new guitar is scheduled to
be released this summer, and is a limited build, with each guitar individually numbered.  Nova Kaine
Stain is designing the guitar with her father, Chase Stain, and the two have stated that their goal
is to produce an amazing, high quality guitar that is the perfect instrument for an individual that has
been learning, and is finally ready to move up to the next level.  The new guitar features special,
custom made pickups, made by Seymour Duncan, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.  We
will post additional info regarding the upcoming guitar in the next few weeks, so check back for
updates!

1-13-2020        Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys Debut Show and Bad Stain Interview
With Our Fearless President, Chase Stain, and Dedicated Vice President, Nova Kaine Stain
We are thrilled to announce that Bad Stain's newest recording artist, Daisy Moonshine and The
City Boys, have announced the bands first show in Austin, Texas at Mohawk Bar on Saturday, March
28th.  The band has already written two original songs, and have a set with over twenty cover songs
from various punk bands.  Daisy Moonshine assured her fans that the band will have at least six
original songs to perform on the 28th, and they hope to have ten or twelve songs if possible.  
Moonshine also informed fans that the band is trying to enter the studio in early summer to start
recording pre-production songs for the album, and hope to start recording the bands debut full
length album by the winter of 2020.

Bad Stain's President and Vice President were asked by The Punk Rock Tribune to do an interview
with the independent fanzine late last month, and our President, Chase Stain, and Vice President, as
well as Chase Stain's daughter, Nova Kaine Stain, both agreed.  Just two weeks ago, Chase and Nova
Kaine met up with Stephanie Pratt at a West Phoenix Starbucks to perform the interview, and the
issue hits news stands on January 15th.  You can read the interview
HERE.  

Last week, we informed everyone that Redneck Ryan, Lucky McGraw, and Thump-Thump from Daisy
Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers, started a new project called "Travel By Starlight" with
former "Wylde Life" guitarist and frontman Marcus Wylde.  Just a few days after posting the
announcement, Redneck Ryan contacted Bad Stain and informed us that the band members had
changed their mind, and decided to name the new band, "The Redneck Brothers".  Members are
currently writing new music, and hope to be performing live shows by Spring.  The band has asked to
join the Bad Stain family, and we are currently negotiating on some things, although we hope that
"The Redneck Brothers" end up calling Bad Stain home in the near future.

Last week we announced that Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers and 946 West have both

with something new.  The West brothers, Caleb and Sean West, from 946 West posted that they
plan on starting a new project together and plan on keeping fans informed about future details.  
Redneck Ryan, Lucky McGraw, and Thump-Thump from Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers

frontman Marcus Wylde.  Daisy Moonshine and Aaron Fuzz announced that they teamed up with
Redneck Brothers former guitarist, Charlie Riot, as well as a few other friends, to start their new
project, Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys.  The new band has a style that is similar to Daisy
Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers, but promises to move beyond the previous band creatively.  
Daisy Moonshine and The City Boys just signed a two album, three year contract with Bad Stain, and
is currently writing material for the upcoming release.

Bad Stain's, Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners, entered the studio this weekend to start

12-28-2019        So Long and Thanks for all the Riffs......
We just got some unfortunate news the days after Christmas, and it was followed up with more bad
news that we just obtained earlier this morning.  Bad Stain Recording Artists 946 West and Daisy
Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers have both announced that they are breaking up.  Daisy
Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers stated the break up was....."The result of internal conflicts
between members within the band", as well as "expanding their horizons with music, but each
member expanding in a different direction".  Both Daisy Moonshine and Redneck Ryan contacted the
label and let us know about the decision.  Caleb West, frontman for 946 West, contacted us around
ten or eleven, earlier this morning.  Caleb explained that the band had been on shaky ground for
some time, and told us that guitarist Christian Bradshaw had in fact quit the band four times in the
past three months.  Caleb told us that he and his brother had to beg Christian to continue on with
the band.  Christian apparently had started a side project that he became more and more happy
with, and wanted to pursue his other band full time.  Caleb said that on Christmas Eve, the bands
bassist, Levi Weston, informed the band that he was moving to Pennsylvania after the first of the
year.  Sean and Caleb said that they felt as though it was the universe telling them to throw in the
towel, and try something new.  So they told Christian that he should go pursue his other band full
time and wished him luck.  Both Caleb and Sean are planning on starting a new project in the near
future, and we will keep everyone up to date with any info regarding 946 West or Daisy Moonshine
and Her Redneck Brothers.  Other than that......we hope that all of you out there had a wonderful
Christmas and/or Hanuka, and wish you all a KICK ASS New Year!
