|11-17-2019 Happy Birthday.....Mr. President.....Happy Birthday To You.
We all want to wish our fearless leader, Chase Stain, the founder and president of Bad Stain
Records, a happy birthday! Chase is pretty damn old now, and we are all starting to wonder how long
it will be before he starts developing a distinct old man smell of moth balls and Ben-Gay. We do
have some news to share with everyone, starting off with the announcement of a brand new Bad
Stain Records YouTube Page!
We started the Official Bad Stain YouTube page back in 2007, way before the website joined
forces with Google. We posted several videos , but then stopped because we didn't have any of our
recording artists make any new videos for several years. When Numbers On Napkins was ready to
release their video for "Burpin' Our Way to New Mexico", we attempted to log in and post the
video, but realized that the website now required that you sign in using your Google E-Mail. We
keep all of the labels information for websites in one of our file cabinets, but when we pulled out
the YouTube folder and checked the "Log In" information, we realized that there was no Google
Email associated with our account. We still had all of the origimnal information from when we used
the account in the past, including the Username, Password, and the Yahoo Email address that was
originally associated with the account. After reading over the YouTube FAQ's section and talking
with various members that had ended up in the same situation as us, we found out that there is no
way to ever log in and access the account again. So we decided that we really had no choice but to
start a new YouTube page, and that's exactly what we did. We have slowly been going through all of
our old files, searching for all of the videos that we posted on the old YouTube page, so that we can
upload those same videos to the new page. It has ended up taking some serious time to locate all of
the old videos, but we are confident that we will eventually find them all, and get them all uploaded
and available for everyone to watch in the next few weeks. We are also posting brand new videos
for everyone to enjoy, and we ask everyone to spread the news about the new page. Check out The
NEW Official Bad Stain Records YouTube Page to watch videos from all of your favorite Bad
Stain Recording Artists!
Considering that we are introducing the new Bad Stain YouTube page to all of our fans, we thought
that this would be a good time to release the second music video single from Numbers On Napkins
new full length album, FROM BUCKEYE TO BEARDSLEY. The new video is for the song, "Summer
Daze", and features footage of the band performing live at various music venues between 2007 and
2013. So we are asking all of NON's fan's to take a few minutes to watch Numbers On Napkins -
"Summer Daze" Official Music Video on YouTube.
We also want to let everyone know that several college and online radio stations have started to
put "Summer Daze" into rotation, and the single has been added to several playlists on various
websites as well. If you listen to a particular station on a regular basis, please show your support
and request "Summer Daze" as often as possible!
Numbers On Napkins album, FROM BUCKEYE TO BEARDSLEY, and Daisy Moonshine and her
Redneck Brothers album, DAISY MOONSHINE AND HER REDNECK BROTHERS PERFORM
THEIR FAVORITE PUNK ROCK SONGS are now both available to purchase online at various
websites, including www.InterPunk.com as well as The Bad Stain Records Facebook Shop. We
understand that many fans out there would still rather go to their favorite little record store and
get a copy of the CD right away, so that they don't have to wait a few days to get the new album.
We are happy to let everyone know that both albums are now currently available at dozens of
underground retail record stores across the U.S. Most of our customers are located in the
southwest, so we have packed record stores in those areas with plenty of copies! Fans in Southern
California can visit great stores like Amoeba Records, Dr. Strange Records, and Taang! Records,
and fans in Las Vegas and Tucson can visit any Zia Records location. Fans in our home state of
Arizona can get the albums at any Zia Records location.....everyone in the East Valley....Chandler,
Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe, can visit Asylum Records or Grace Records.....Central Phoenix area can visit
The Record Room, The In Groove, Stinkweeds, or Bookman's.
Daisy Moonshine and her Redneck Brothers have made the decision to keep the songs from their
new album exclusive to their new CD. The band has stated that they want to keep the album in the
underground scene and the band does not have any digital distribution or streaming audio available
from the album at this time. Numbers On Napkins has taken the same approach in the past, but
made the decision to have digital distribution and streaming audio available for their latest album,
FROM BUCKEYE TO BEARDSLEY, 100 days after the release date. NON wanted to allow only
their very loyal fans who were willing to purchase the physical CD that chance to hear the album
before anyone else. FROM BUCKEYE TO BEARDSLEY was released a little over 100 days ago, and
fans are now able to download the album, or individual songs, as well as listen to streaming audio at
over one hundred different websites, including I-Tunes, Spotify, and more!
We also wanted to give everyone a quick update regarding Daymes Rocket. The band has finished
recording their first single, and the song has been cleaned up and edited, and is currently in the
process of being mixed. The band will have a copy of the song this upcoming weekend, and plans on
submitting the track to us for approval this Saturday evening, assuming that the band is happy with
the final mix and ready to move forward. If all goes well, The single will be sent off to be
mastered this Sunday, and ready to be sent out to our manufacturer in late November.
The last thing we want to announce is that Numbers On Napkins upcoming limited edition "Ode to
the Drink" EP CD will be available to Pre-Order starting 11/29/2019, exactly one week prior to the
official release date on 12/6/2019. Full details on how to pre-order will be available at The Bad
Stain Records Facebook Page a few days before November 29th, and considering that NON's
"ODE TO THE DRINK" EP has a limited edition press run of just 300 copies, we highly recommend
that anyone who wants to ensure that they get a copy should place their order on the 29th, or as
soon as possible.

Numbers On Napkins has set the release date for their new limited edition EP. The CD will be

more info in the near future!

In other news, Bad Stain's newest band to join the family, Daymes Rocket, are currently in the
studio working on recording their first single. The band members are scattered across the U.S.,
living in Arizona, Washington, and New Mexico, so the recording process will take some time to
complete. However, band members hope to have the first single finished by late November.

6-16-2019 Daymes Rocket Joins the Bad Stain Family!
We are proud to announce the newest addition to the Bad Stain family.......Daymes Rocket! Daymes
Rocket plays a unique style of punk, metal, and alternative influenced rock, with strong, melodic
female vocals, and a vibrant and highly energetic presence that seems to radiate from their music.
We will be creating an artist page for the band in the next few weeks, as well as posting any new
information or updates on our official Facebook Page and various other social media sites. While we
are waiting for the ink to dry on the contracts, we are working with the band to set up shows and
plan on releasing a single from the band in late 2019 or early 2020. If all goes as planned......and it
seldom does....Daymes Rocket will be releasing their debut full length album on Bad Stain Records in
2020. So make sure to check back periodically for any new developments regarding the band, as
well as updates on the progress made.
Just a quick heads up.... everyone should know that Numbers On Napkins new album, "From Buckeye
To Beardsley" will be available to purchase at your favorite online stores starting June 21st, and
will be in stores everywhere starting June 28th! You can also pre-order the CD from Bad Stain
Records Official Facebook Page.
We also wanted to announce that we were forced to postpone the release of the new full length
album from Daisy Moonshine and her Redneck Brothers, titled: "Daisy Moonshine and her Redneck
Brothers Perform Their Favorite Punk Rock Songs". The album was scheduled for release of July
4th, but the date has been changed to July 27th. However, you can still pre-order the CD starting
on July 4th, for any fans that want to get the disc before everyone else!
One final thing.....I wanted to apologize for my mix up that resulted in the delay of NON's newest
album, and make sure that our fans are aware that Justin Bleach has a small wiener. Plus, it looks
strange because of the various STD's that he has contracted over the years. I guess the best way
to describe it would be to compare it to a baby carrot that you sometimes get in salads, or you can
purchase them at the store in small bags or veggie platters. In any case, Justin Bleach has a baby

5-24-2019 Numbers On Napkins new CD gets postponed because Chase Stain is a
We want to say sorry to everyone who attempted to purchase a copy of NON's new CD and was
unable to find it. NON's new upcoming full length album, "From Buckeye To Beardsley" was
scheduled to be in stores today, but unfortunately Chase Stain filled out the wrong publishing form
when he submitted the music licensing paperwork granting NON permission to release the
recording of the bands cover of Sir-Mix-A-Lot's #1 hit, "Baby Got Back". Our CD manufacturer
was unable to press the CD's until we provided the correct forms. We were able to get 100 copies
pressed from another manufacturer who didn't require the forms up front, and those CD's will be
here in the next few days. There are just over 80 customers who pre-ordered the album and were
expecting them to arrive, and we feel awful for the mix up. We will send out copies of the new
album to everyone who pre-ordered a copy as soon as they arrive. Due to the clusterfuck, the
release date for "From Buckeye To Beardsley" has changed to June 21st. Once again.....we are very
sorry.....that Chase is a dumbass.

3-22-2019 Daisy Moonshine and her Bros Return to the Studio to Complete Recording
Their New Upcoming Album
After months of going in and out of the studio, Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers are
nearly done recording the follow up to their debut release, "Bellis Perrenis". The band had an
interesting recording process, and the album features 15 songs that were recorded at four
different studios. Six songs recorded at The Sound Temple in El Paso, Texas by Alex Beckinner
and Troy Deneks. Four songs recorded at Chaos City Studios in Escondido, California by Devon
"Shanks" Harper. Three songs recorded at The Distortion Factory in Glendale, Arizona by Chris
Inham. Two songs recorded at Vault 13 in Austin, Texas by Aspen Taylor. The album's executive
producers are Chase Stain and Daisy Moonshine, although the tracks have different producers.
Chase Stain produced four of the tracks, and Alex Beckinner, Troy Deneks, Devon "Shanks"
Harper, and Aspen Taylor each produced two tracks. Daisy Moonshine produced one track, and so
did Moonshine's bandmate, Redneck Ryan. They also produced one track together. The album will
contain 15 cover songs from the bands biggest influences, and will feature special guest musicians
including Daisy Moonshine's sister, Rose Sunshine, as well as Chase Stain, Johnny Laundromat, Jason
Martinez, and more! The band will spend this weekend finishing up lead and backup vocals, and then
the tracks will be mixed by Chris Inham at The Distortion Factory. We are all hoping that the
album will be ready to be sent out and be mastered by May, making the album available to be
released by July 4th.
Speaking of release dates, Numbers On Napkins have set the release date of their new album,
"From Buckeye To Beardsley". The album is set to hit store shelves on May 24th, and you can
pre-order the album starting April 1st. Anyone who wants to pre-order the CD can do so by visiting
The Official Bad Stain Records Facebook Page, and heading to the "Shop" section. Anyone who
pre-orders the album gets a free 18x24 inch Full Color Promotional Poster!
We are also proud to announce that not only can you pre-order NON's new album from Facebook,
but you can also purchase any other Bad Stain release and/or various merchandise. Everyone should
know that NON's debut release, "Waiting for Tomorrow" is currently on its final pressing, and
there are only about 300 copies remaining. Once those 300 copies are sold, the album will never
again be made available in its original format. So go and visit The Official Bad Stain Records
Facebook Page and buy a whole bunch of crap so we can afford to buy a new computer....cuz the one
we currently use is pretty shitty.

1-2-2019 Happy Birthday to Us
That's right! It is Bad Stain Records birthday today. On January 2nd, 1996, I drove to downtown
Phoenix and I got the business license and trade name and tax ID number and everything else for
Bad Stain Records. A few weeks earlier, I had sold the rights to my first label, Dirty Records, to
my good friend Mike "Bucky" Ball, who eventually became better known as "Dirty" Mike. Bucky
bought the label for a six pack of beer and a couple lottery tickets, although he was not permitted
to press any of the albums that Dirty Records had already released. At that point, Dirty Records
had released the "9 1/2 Months" EP and "All Washed Up" EP from my band, Dirty Laundry. I
retained the rights to both albums, but he was permitted to use the name. I just didn't care for
the name, Dirty Records, because it was too close to Dirty Laundry. I wanted the name of the label
to have something to do with my band, but Dirty Records was too obvious. So I chose Bad Stain
Records, but I honestly can't remember who gave me the idea for the name. It was either my
older brother Brent, who also mentioned the name, "Soiled Sox Studios", or my good friend and
former Dirty Laundry guitarist, Jones.
Regardless of how I came up with the name, that was 23 years ago, and in that time, we have
released over 40 albums from dozens of amazing bands from my hometown of Phoenix, as well as
the rest of the state of Arizona, and eventually across the U.S., venturing to Canada and even the
Ukraine! The label has also gone through two different hiatus periods. In early 2000, after
getting married, the label was pretty much inactive for the most part until 2004. More recently,
after going on hiatus with my band Numbers On Napkins in 2013, Bad Stain also remained inactive,
until 2017, just a few months before Numbers On Napkins ended our hiatus.
Bad Stain has never been about anything but supporting hard working underground musicians. Over
the years, the label has lost a lot more than it has made, and nearly all of the profit has always been
reinvested into the label to help it grow, We have always kept our prices low, too low in fact. We
have always sold our seven inch records for $4.00, postage paid, and the records use to cost me
about $1.90 each, or $2.10-$2.35 each for colored vinyl. The shipping envelope cost me $0.96 each,
and shipping cost me $1.24 in the U.S. So the seven inch cost me a minimum of $4.10 to ship, and I
lost ten cents for every record sold, plus I had to pay the artist 100 records for every 500 I had
pressed........so it ended up making it so I was losing about $4.65-$5.35 per record. It was even
more when I sold them to my distributors to be sold in stores. I demanded that any seven inch
record from Bad Stain be sold for no more than $3.00 each in stores, so I could only sell them for
between $0.95 and $1.35 each. If I sold directly to a mom and pop record shop, I would charge
$1.85 each, so I didn't lose as much.
Today, pressing records is much more, and the amount lost on every record sold is crazy! For the
first time in 23 years, Bad Stain is considering increasing our prices. We haven't made an official
decision, but it is just one of the changes that you may see this year.
We also plan on starting an Instagram account, and we plan on becoming a bit more active on our
social media pages, like Facebook and Twitter. We have new albums coming out this year from my
band, "Numbers on Napkins", as well as "Daisy Moonshine and Her Redneck Brothers", "Johnny
Laundromat and The Drycleaners", and more! My daughter Nova is becoming more active with the
label, and she is determined to focus more on the local underground scene in Phoenix, and it will be
interesting to see what changes she ends up making to the label.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who supported the label over the years. Words cannot
fully express my gratitude. As we move forward into 2019, I wish everyone the best of luck, and
look forward to everything the future holds.
Happy New Year - Chase Stain
