One time Dionysus co-pilot and forever Dionysus friend Aime McCrory wrote a beautiful post today about a long out-of-print album from the label’s catalog. This inspired me to create a FREE download of the compilation, artist and track listing, plus download link below. Thanks Aime!
As holiday times approach, a fond memory comes to mind. In 1997, as part of Dionysus Records, I had the privilege of co-producing Rodney on the Roq’s Santa’s Got A GTO album for dear friend, Rodney Bingenheimer, with rock writer and publicist at the time Harvey Kubernik. Rodney’s mom had just passed away, and Harvey and I, who had worked together in the Kim Fowley days came up with an idea of doing a Christmas album to help raise funds for the property tax costs of his late mother’s estate. Some amazing bands wrote or contribute tracks including Nina Hagen, Jane Weidlan of the Go’sGo’s, The Ramonas and Evan Douglas Foster’s Boss Martians. Lee Joseph graciously green lighted the project and oversaw the production and the CD was released on Dionysus Records. We were blessed to have Mordam Records, the legendary indie distribution company and the support their senior staff, including the talented Michelle Gearhead Haunold and awesome Mike Jones behind the sales of the album. Jonathan L who was with Album Network and the Senior Editor of its sister publication, Virtually Alternative, gave us our first piece of mainstream press and we were all over the moon! While the CD didn’t raise the money any of us hoped for, the album was a project of love and brought together many wonderful and talents folks. Happy holidays and enjoy the music! – Aime McCrory
