Believe it or not, 2003 was the year of our very first release on Joyful Noise. Now, the 500 CD copies that we manufactured of Melk the G6-49′s s/t album would hardly constitute a release by our current standards. Mainly because back in 2003 we didn’t have any clue how to distribute or promote albums… I’m not even really sure what our concept of a “release” was back then, but regardless we did bring 500 CD copies into existence with “JNR01″ printed on the spine.
Therefore, 2003 is the year we pinpoint as “the beginning” of our humble label, which means that 2013 is our 10-year anniversary. Holy shit.
So, how should we celebrate? We have a few ideas listed below. Vote for your favorite option, or write something in if you have any better ideas:
1. Press the very first JNR release on vinyl because it’s only on stupid ol’ CD
(That release is from noise rock duo: Melk the G6-49. Still holds up a decade later, in our opinion.)
2. Release a compilation retrospective
(maybe featuring some of our favorite songs we’ve released in the past 10 years)
3. Go out drinking
(probably going to happen anyway)
