Lots of cutting and pasting and drawing and photoshopping and writing and so forth have cumulated in a new issue of Translate zine, the print organ of the Hex empire (which, basically, offers little to no propaganda about Hex Records at all). Personally, I think it came out pretty cool.
The fourth installment of zine nerdom packed into 32 pages and wrapped in a fancy-shmancy color cover. The upsides of cross-country travel in the name of punk rock and over-the-hill show going interspersed with the gut-churning lows of becoming a grumpy old bastard consumed with morality and death. Plane flights, stage dives, a last will and testament and, coincidentally enough, an interview with Brooklyn post-punkers Obits. Storytelling and cheap comics. Deal.

Get it in the webstore

I think I'll start re-creating some Hex Records covers here and there with funny stuff instead. Let's take, for instance, a recent excursion in my kitchen in which a pizza stone resembled a very well-known record cover that I released. Well, here you go...
ED GEIN, "It's a Shame That a Pizza Can Be Torn Apart By Something As Simple As a Bunch Of Toothpicks"

Check back soon for more fun shit.

So check it: OAK & BONE have a new split 7" (with the mighty LIKE WOLVES) dropping imminently on the extra-squishy Barbarossa Records. Get yourself an extra face because this will rock the first one off.
The Boners drop two new jams, as do the Wolfs (that's right). We at Hex wholeheartedly endorse this event or product and will more than likely be carrying a few of these in the webstore when the time arrives. Expected date for this to come out is around the end of May. But feel free to pre-order it now from Barbarossa here

So a couple weeks ago OAK AND BONE played a killer house show with the equally awesome Urchins Of the Night. Some live video was caught of "Momentum" (the closer on the 7"), along with the gargantuan outro that you'll probably catch them do if you ever see them live.
So check it out one time if you will. Follow the link:
