I put up all the Roman Candles records on bandcamp that I have including test presses. Everything is name your own price starting at $1.00. Barbara and I were supposed to move to Budapest this summer before the shelter in place / stay at home orders were put into effect. It seems less and less likely that that will happen. While I was originally hoping to get rid of some of this stock before we left, it would still be nice to get people these records if they wanted them regardless of whether we end up going. So if you're interested you can check everything out HERE or at romancandles.bandcamp.com

MRR #422 and Razorcake #105 have reviewed issue # 17 of The Stowaways. I've still got a couple left. Send $2 to the address listed below. Please support both MRR and Razorcake and consider picking up the issues at the links above.
The Stowaways #17
$2-3 / 20 pages
Pretty tight little read after the author took a few years off to join the Peace Corps in Colombia. Interviews with the band Post Life, trippy psych-core guitar wizard Calvin Jalandoni, and a few pages of live show reviews. I think I expected a bit more after a four year absence; tell me some wild as hell story of your weird ass time in fucking Peace Corps. It was a good read, though (DZ).
960 E. Bonita Ave. Unit #120 / Pomona, CA, 91767
STOWAWAYS, THE #17, $2-$3, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", copied, 18 pgs.
The Stowaways is back after a four-year hiatus while Christopher finished college and did two years of service in the Peace Corps. This issue consists of show reviews and interviews, some of which he wrote before this stuff happened. Unfortunately, this comeback left something to be desired. The interviews were solid and in-depth, but the show reviews were a little bland in a "they were amazing" kind of way (and I'm not a big fan of show reviews as it is). I've enjoyed Christopher's writing in Razorcake and earlier issues of The Stowaways, but this one was a bit disappointing. -Craven Rock (The Stowaways, 960 E. Bonita Ave. Unit #120, Pomona, CA 91767)

The Stowaways Issue #17 is out now. Calvin Jalandoni did the cover art. This was supposed to come out before I left for Colombia in 2014, but it didn't work out. So here we are with an interview of Calvin Jalandoni and Brianna Meli from Post Life. It's got show reviews and some photos. If you'd like one send me a message, and we'll figure something out.
