Getting ready for the onslaught February 3

Hawthorne Curve Records headquarters is a-quiver in anticipation of the gargantuan demand for the new single by Peter Holsapple, to be released on selfsame label February 3.  Here we see the HCR Shipping Department, working their fingers to the bone (in lieu of getting homework done, but whatever), creatively packaging containers full of "Don't Mention The War" vinyl products.  We at HCR strive to keep up with demand, and we promise we'll get the records out in...record time.  Sales go LIVE February 3 at my Big Cartel store and at Schoolkids Records locations in the Triangle area.

(Right now, if you follow the link, you won't see a way to order the single, but you can mark your calendar for 2/4 and will be able to place the order then).
