I got a bit of a surprise this morning. I checked my e-mail, then checked various websites including the Lazy-i webboard, where I found a new thread titled “Doom Town Records.” The message announced the release of a 5-song EP by Baby Tears, the new band that features among its members Ethan Jones (ex-Ladyfinger). Clicking through to doomtownrecords.com I discovered that this new label also will be releasing that amazing new Perry H. Matthews LP that I mentioned a few weeks ago that was recorded by Joel Petersen at Enamel. That’s not all. DTR also is rereleasing a couple out-of-print singles by Church of Gravitron.
So who is Doom Town Records? A quick search on whois.net revealed that the site’s domain name (i.e., url) belongs to Ethan Jones, which doesn’t mean that DTR is his label, only that he purchased the label’s domain name. Maybe someone from DTR will let us know the skinny?
