A-F Records has teamed up with Commonwealth Press, Pittsburgh’s own DIY fueled screen printing operation, to bring to life a free compilation CD that celebrates the collaborative spirit of the punk community. The CD comes free with anything ordered from the A-F Records online store, and will also be available while they last at the labels merch table this year at Fest 13 in Gaineville, FL.
Stream the entire comp now via A-F Records Bandcamp page: http://ow.ly/CH78X
Curated by A-F Records, the comp contains songs, many of which are previously unreleased, from bands on their roster (Worship This!, Anti-Flag, White Wives, World's Scariest Police Chases, The Homeless Gopsel Choir, + more), as well as from other amazing bands from the region (The Public, Latecomer, Barons, One If By Land, Edhochuli, Reservoir, + more).
“I wanted to do something in the spirit of the “punk-o-rama” and “fat music for…” comps that originally got me into some of my favorite bands. Like hearing Hi-Standard for the first time on that Cinema Beer Nuts comp, that was an awesome day. So I picked a bunch of awesome songs from awesome bands for this comp.” - Chris Stowe // A-F Records Label Manager
The artwork was designed and screen printed by Commonwealth Press, a pillar of the local Pittsburgh punk community in its own right.
“Commonwealth Press has a long relationship of working with A-F Records and, when the opportunity came along to get involved with the comp they were working on, we jumped at it. Getting to design and hand screen print the covers seemed like such an awesome way to add a cool touch to such a rad collection of songs!” - Dan Rock // CWP // WSPC
