April/May 2024

Well, here we are AGAIN and I spaced on the entire month of April. I have been so busy with my day job and the business end of running a fairly busy record label that I’ve really been slacking on the promo stuff. Thankfully I have Tricia to pick up some of the slack! With all of that out of the way, it has been a crazy month + for us over here at Mom’s Basement Records. We released that 5 disc Jasons cd boxset, it sold out in 3 minutes. A lot of people missed out on it and that sucks. So we’re going to try to do another version of it in the near future. We also released the debut from Texas punks Hoaxxers, we released a super limited Lathe Cut 7” ep. It’s available now on white or clear lathe cut 7” but if you didn’t get one yet, I’d do that sooner than later bc there’s single digits left on both of those colors.

At the end of April, Phase One of the 2024 Young Hasselhoffs onslaught began with the vinyl release of their legendary third album “The Obsolete Man”. The clear splatter vinyl sold out immediately but there is still copies available on White Splatter and White Marble and finally on May 3rd, the debut release from the Bacarrudas dropped and people are loving it. The Bacarrudas are the brain child of Adam Rabuck (Dirt Bike Annie) and that dude is still razor sharp all these years later. It’s not your typical punk rock release though, it’s in fact, a 60’s inspired frat rock project. Grab a copy of pool party today, it’s limited to only 100 hand numbered cds.

Thanks for the support everyone, the label is busy as hell and it’s a great problem to have! Stay tuned for more releases from the Putz, The Follow Ups, Proton Packs, Haermorrhoids, EGGHEAD., Goin’ Places, The Young Hasselhoffs And the Jasons! It’s gonna be another busy year for us at MBR. Stay tuned to our social media channels and subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t yet. There’s a gang of MBR Fest 2023 footage that’ll be uploaded soon!

February/March 2024

Wow! So February and March has been a blur! Here we are and we’re over half way through march already.. so let’s call this one a 2 piece extra value post. Let’s start from the beginning, back in February we released the debut full length from Columbus, Ohios own Lustkill, their self titled full length is available on 3 different colors of vinyl as well as Cd! We also debuted the first single/music video for a brand new band out of Texas called Hoaxxers. This band may sound familiar if you’re an older punk like us bc it’s Joe Jitsu incarnate! Same dudes, new band name and the song rules. The song “Thought That You Should Know” is streaming everywhere now and the music video is on YouTube! Check our Label band music video playlist to easily find the video.

In March we released the new Classic Pat full length “Won’t Back Down” it’s a certified banger and it’s selling quickly. We also just launched the preorder for the sophomore full length from Manarovs. “Callsign:Proton” is available on 3 colors of vinyl as well as CD. You can also get those bundled with an exclusive t-shirt that was designed by our main dude Marco About from Twister! At the end of this month comes MBR100 – it’s the Jasons – Slashology cd boxset. It’s 5 discs and comes with extra fixin’s. You’ll have to stay tuned to the labels social media page or the Jasons social media page for more info on that in the very near future.

January 2024

Happy New Year! We’re off to a late start with this write up.. shit happens right? We hope that you checked out and enjoyed the 2023 Mom’s Basement Records X-mas party. A bunch of MBR friends and family came through with some awesome video clips. One of the highlights was the submission from EGGHEAD!!! That was a star studded event (Will Wheaton!?!) and coincidentally, it’s the bands first new song in a decade, so we’re honored to have had that be a part of the Xmas party.

Now onto 2024 happenings! We’re starting this year off with a bang, as of right now Post Ramome – Sounds Like This is sold out at the label, Jolly Ronnie Records does has a few copies left if you didn’t get one, once those are gone, the only way to get a copy is through the band at one of their shows or through our distributor Traffic Entertainment, so ask your local record store to grab you a copy. We also just released a special little cd-ep from the Dee Thees which is a MBR family supergroup as it were. The band features members of the SUCK and Ratbones, they recorded 4 fun covers through the Covid Quarantine and they’re now finally seeing the light of day.

That’s all we will have for the month of January, February and march will be killer though, you can expect releases from Lustkill, Manarovs, the Jasons, Classic Pat and the Young Hasselhoffs! We have a TON of other killer stuff coming up this year, we’re talking about some heavy hitter projects too. We’re also working on the beginning stages of booking Mom’s Basement Fest. It’s going to be nuts, it’s going down at Westside Bowl in Youngstown, Ohio on October 4th and 5th so mark your calendars and grab those advance tickets when they’re available. Thanks for all of the support over the years and we’re really stoked on the future of the label.

Happy New Years B/W

Cheers and Beers!
