JOHN "ELVIS" SCHRODER - I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS B/W GONNA BE YOUR SANTA - 7" Vinyl Single
Voodoo Doughnut Recordings is proud to present Christmas with John "Elvis" Schroder. You may know him as the big loveable Elvis impersonator that you can catch most weekends at the Saturday market or performing rousing renditions of covers down at Dantes with Karaoke From Hell. Recorded in the early 90's by Dean Fletcher, one of the great documenters of the Portland music scene, these tracks were originally featured on a small-run, full-length Elvis Christmas album.





SMEGMA- LIVE AT THE X-RAY CAFE - 12" VINYL LP
The fifth installment in the "Tales from the Grease Trap" series of live archival releases from Portland's early '90s features the legendary noise/experimental group Smegma. Smegma came into being in Pasadena, California in 1973, incorporating a "band without musicians" approach and exploring new musical ground via the convergence of amateurism, improvisation and a proto-punk aesthetic. In 1975 Smega relocated to Portland, and simultaneously became involved with the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). The two sides on this album, recorded on February 13, 1993 and February 17, 1994 at the all-ages X-Ray Cafe in Portland, showcase Smegma traversing uniquely fertile ground, journeying between abstract loop-based soundscapes, surf rock, Krautrock and brutal noise. Mixed + mastered by Frank Musarra (Girl Talk, Trey Told 'Em) from the original 8-track cassette recordings. Limited-edition pressing of 500 "cloudy-clear" transparent vinyl records.





PORTLAND CREAM VOLUME 1 - COMPILATION CD
Voodoo Doughnut Recordings presents the cream of Portland's current musical crop, produced by Old Town Music's Hank Failing. Failing, an affable tastemaker, released the prescient series of "Failing Records" comps between 2004 and 2010. Here he returns to the curatorial fray with 22 hand-plucked gems spanning garage rock, indie rock, Tex-Mex, metal, grunge, folk and synthpop. Rising stars such as Mo Troper, underground pop-punk acts such as Kingdom of Smoth and established indie all-stars such as Eyelids and Radiation City all stand shoulder to shoulder on Volume 1 of what promises to be a highly anticipated annual local music comp. Featuring original artwork by Vo Mihn McBurney and surprises galore, such as the return of Morgan Grace as a member of Bitch School!





HAZEL - LIVE IN PORTLAND - 12" VINYL LP
The fourth installment in the "Tales from the Grease Trap" series of live archival releases from Portland's early '90s features hometown heroes Hazel at their upset, energetic, melodic best. Recorded on 6/18/1993 at the X-Ray Cafe and on 9/11/1993 on the back of a flatbed truck as part of a benefit show for homeless youth shelter Outside In. Hazel was a relatively short-lived project but their influence on the Portland music scene was substantial. Guitarist and vocalist Pete Krebs evolved into a journeyman performer of not just underground rock but traditional jazz and country. Along with drummer and vocalist Jody Bleyle, bassist Brady Smith and dancer Fred Nemo, Hazel left a powerful mark on the droves of grunge and indie songsmiths who followed. Now, for the first time since the early '90s, you can hear Hazel live in their golden-era prime. Limited-edition pressing of 300.
