Scotty Sandwich of The Sandwiches and Death To False Hope Records


2009 definitely was a busy and successful year. I watched DTFH records help release music for a number of wonderful bands, along with two compilations that feature some of my favorite artists. In addition to that, myself and some fellow punknews users pulled money and Ideas together to start Loose Charm Records, a vinyl only label who just recently saw our first release with "Pilgrim" by Red Collar. And of course there was the release of "Hitting Refresh to Drop Witty Comments" which was a long undertaking,but i am really proud that I can create music with a good friend who lives thousands of miles away. I'd like to thank all the Punknews staff and all the readers who supported Death to False Hope and The Sandwiches, since none of this would have happened without their help and kind words.
