The Setup is a distro out of Orlando, Fl. I try to stock all sorts of rad music and work real hard on finding and stocking things alot of other distros don't have, like cassettes and releases with handmade packaging. I also love to get ahold of pins, patches, stickers, stationary and nearly anything else a D.I.Y. kid could make and/or use.

I try to keep things cheap and D.I.Y...

The full catalog can be found at The Setup.

If you'd like to see the latest newsletter with all the graphics, check it out here: The Setup Distro Newsletter #3.

The Setup Distro has started two big new sales!

It's All About Florida


Plan It X & Friends

That means every single record and zine in our distro related to the state of Florida and Plan It X Records are now on sale!

We also still have the Carbon Records and Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records sales going on: The Setup's Sale Page!

Other than that, we have a few new arrivals:


Night Wounds - "Rat Magic" (Gilgongo)
You probably haven't heard of Night Wounds yet, but just be patient. Their discography, already containing this solo seven inch and a split one-sided seven inch with Black Castle, is about to mulitply with upcoming split records with the likes of Coughs, Die Fugue USA and Genders. Their sound is a sort of lo-fi, feedback driven dance-punk that will bring excitement to fans of An Albatross, Combatwoundedveteran, Coughs, Lightning Bolt, etc. The artwork for this record was created by Chris of Steak Mountain, the man responsible for all of the CWV artwork, as well as much of the Atom & His Package and Reversal of Man graphics. The vinyl is pink and side one and side two are differentiated by stickers. Listen: Rat Magic. $4.00


Think of this record as a postcard from the ’90's. Think of the bands of the second emo-wave. Think JULIA, CURRENT, etc; their blend of harsh explosions of anger and beautiful heartfelt melodies, the whispers, the screams, the tears. Total heart-breaking emo. These two dutch bands remember but succesfully stand on their own two feet. It's also been said that both bands "play a mixture between mid 90´s emocore (like You And I) and modern screamo (like City Of Caterpillar)". Definately reccomended for fans of the previous listed bands, as well as I Hate Myself, Moonraker, etc. Limited to 500 copies, all hand numbered, artwork printed offset press. Listen: The People Listening, Wonder / Dodewaard. $9.00 *ITALIAN IMPORT*


ASTHMA ATTAQ - "Breathe Heavy" CD (Forever Escaping Boredom)
Sarasota, Florida's Asthma Attaq return with their genre-bending two-man hectic emo assault. "Think a weird amalgamation of Jerome's Dream and Hella. AA take the listener through a winding corridor of hardcore, noise, post rock, and jazz and they do it absolutely flawlessly fromsong to song. This band has been Florida's best kept secret for far too long." - Fountain Webzine. "If Hella was good, they would sound like this." - Heartattack. $6.00

Blame Game "Honey And Salt" CD (Stickfigure)
Beautiful and nauseating, jazzy and fierce, tumultuous and contained, precise and loose...one of these adjectives could be applied at any given point during one of Blame Game's sets. Atlanta's Blame Game is a band of extremes that somehow always makes sense. For those in the audience, the meticulous attention to detail displayed by the band's compositions (while retaining a strong attachment to playing loose when needed) is apparent from the get go. Anchored by the rhythm section of Alex Lambert on drums/sax (also a member of free jazz trio Lie and Swell) and Chris Ware on bass, the band defies nausea-inducing easy labels by giving the listener a quick ride through their assorted influences. In just one song, faint glimpses of Captain Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, and Don Caballero will appear but that glimpse is quickly washed away as you realize that you are seeing something more substantial than a band with great influences. The mark of a great band is one that takes its influences and refuses regurgitation. Blame Game molds those influences to create something that is new and very refreshing. The churning and weaving of guitarists George Asimakos (ex-Camaro Crotch) and Andrew Wiggins (ex-Left to Rust) leaves very little to be desired. Odd time changes and dynamic shifts are just a few of the tricks that Blame Game has in its hat to leave the audience cheering for more at just about every stop they make. Listen: Truly Wash Yourself. $8.00

NEIL ON IMPRESSION - For A New Grammar Of Feelings (Life Of Hate)
Italian instrumentalists bringing forth sounds remniscent of a more mathmatically, less atmospheric version of Explosions In The Sky. For fans of Six Parts Seven, EITS and Sonna. The beautiful music is backed up by equally beautiful packaging, featuring a cardstock sleeve, wrapped in a vellum (you know, that see-through white paper?) band featuring starkly contrasted black and white photographs. Inside there are two small inserts, one made of textured cardstock printed with a simple quote and holding the second insert, a tri-fold vellum page with lyrics, photographs and information. $9.00 *ITALIAN IMPORT*

"SPIRIT MAZE" project (darkwave/gothic/industrial/newage) [13 Dec 2004|10:36pm]

I write music for various local projects, besides I have the basic project under the name " Spirit Maze ". I started to be engaged in it since 2001... have written down 2 albums but still them was not issued on one label. The first album is made in 2002г in style " industrial-noise dark electrionic ", the Second album (already on quality on the order is higher) has been made in style "gothic/darkwave". Now I work above a material to 3th to an album and I plan to be let be released on any label (can Irond?)... Also I try myself in such spheres as drum'n'bass, industrial, hip-hop
If the additional information that is necessary write on moselle@inbox.ru, or visit my page where you also can find the reference to my albums (in quality for acquaintance)

Hello. We have a volunteer-run community radio station here in Spokane, WA, and I was hoping that we could add more music by small labels to our library! The music will be added to our library so that DJs may listen to it, and play it as they so desire! We generally add a song or two to our automated system as well.

You can find out more about our station by visiting http://www.thinairradio.org or by writing musiclibrarian@riseup.net.

Please send music to:
Thin Air Radio
Attn: Nicki
35 W. Main, Suite 340
Spokane, WA 99201

Thank you!

Does anyone know of a CD pressing plant that does not require an IPR form?

Coloured vinyl. [25 Jan 2004|06:17pm]

I was wondering about the sound quality of coloured vinyl versus regular black. I believe Steve Albini wrote something on the subject but I cant find it. I know picture discs aren't the best but does anyone know what difference (if any) coloured vinyl makes in terms of sound quality? Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know of any other place to buy record mailers besides BagsUnlimited.com?
I like BagsUnlimited.com's prices.... all except for their prices on those damned mailers!

If anyone knows anything about BRK Mastering or what kind of job they do, it'd be much appreciated.

A couple of questions:

1.) How important is mastering?
2.) Have any of you ordered from Hi-Fi-Lo-Fi before?

UPC Codes and stickers [13 Feb 2003|11:27pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Hey, just joined.

I'm just about to put a release out on my new label and I'm trying to figure out the best route to go with the whole UPC code thing. I'm looking into getting a company code for the label ($300!) but I doubt it would be issued in time for this release. It's not like I expect to make a mark with SoundScan or anything, but my distributor is going to want one at the very least.

What do you guys do for these things? Is there a downside to getting one issued by someone like Independent Records as opposed to having your own company code and issuing your own? Where is the cheapest place to get UPC stickers made? (The first 500 of these are going to be handmade art, so I'll have to use stickers)

hello, i am purkey.
i own an independent record label in baltimore, MD called siyoku satsu usa. we work with experimental/industrial/goth artists mainly and are bulding quite a good reputation in the baltimore area. in the past we have mainly worked off our friends bands, and good local bands in the area, but last summer we aquired 2 international artists, merzbow and kapotte muziek, and are releasing records for them also. they are both a 2 cd drop so there was no need for paperwork, just our verbal contract. we are starting to get demos sent to us, and we like some of them, but some aren't the kind of bands we are looking for for our family. we have never really had to deal with contracts before, since financially we are not equipt yet to send groups on tour. does anyone have any good advise?
