|1-16-18 Numbers On Napkins Returns to the Scene After Spending Nearly Five Years

announcement on their website stating that they are ending their hiatus that has lasted for nearly
half a decade.

We are very excited for their return and are happy to announce that Bad Stain will be
releasing a new full length album from the band in 2018. NON's new album will be titled, "From
Buckeye To Beardsley", and the band will be in the studio working on recording new material over
the next few months. Numbers On Napkins are including several live recordings, and a few songs
from their "QuickerDrunkenLouderHarder" EP on the new album, that promises to give listeners a
reflection of the band throughout its entire history. It manages to provide an accurate portrayal
of NON's comedic and energetic live performances, provides the listener with a small sample from
each of the bands releases over the years, and gives fans several new songs that are sure to
satisfy anyone who enjoys NON's diverse style of punk rock.
One of the most exciting things about the new album is the news that NON will be recording a
handful of the new songs with their former guitarist Matt Martini. Martini parted ways with the
band in late 2010, just a few weeks before they released their last album, "Borrachos, Chingasos, Y
Rucas". NON stated that Martini left the band on good terms for creative differences. Martini
wanted to play music that was more raw punk rock, and after announcing his departure, he chose to
put all of his time and energy into focusing on his other band Reason Unknown. NON has made it
clear to fans that although Matt Martini is joining them to play on a few select tracks from the new
album, he will not be joining the band on stage to perform any live shows in the near future.
We will keep everyone up to date with the progress being made with the new album as it
develops, and will hopefully set a release date sometime in early 2018 when the band has finished
things up in the studio.
Happy New Year - Nova Stain
12-6-17 Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners / 946 West - Split Ten Inch
Record and the FINAL PRESSING of Numbers On Napkins debut album, "Waiting for
Tomorrow" in stores now!
The latest Bad Stain release, the split ten inch record featuring Johnny Laundromat and The
Drycleaners and 946 West.......is officially in stores now, and you should hurry up and get your copy
now, cuz they are selling like grade A blue meth. Pre-order sales for the new split ten inch record
have been amazing, and the record has already sold nearly 300 copies. We don't have very many
copies of the first pressing on white vinyl left, but if you end up ordering your copy too late, the
second pressing is on clear vinyl, so you will still end up with a cool record, instead of the plain old
black vinyl. Both bands will be heading on tour to promote the new record just after Christmas, and
will meet up with each other in the middle of the tour to perform the last fifteen dates. We will
be posting tour dates within the next few weeks, so check back soon.
We also wanted to let everyone know that we will not be repressing any future copies of "Waiting
for Tomorrow" from Numbers On Napkins. The debut album from NON, "Waiting for Tomorrow",
was originally released in late 2004, and sales for the album were far better than we had ever
anticipated. We made 1,000 copies for the first pressing, and all of the copies were sold at the
bands CD release party, forcing us to quickly order the second pressing. We ordered another
2,000 copies, and just six months later we were nearly out again. In the summer of 2005, we
ordered 3,000 copies for the third pressing, and by March 0f 2006, ordered another 3,000
copies. Album sales slowed down after that, and we didn't need to repress again until the summer
of 2008, just before NON left on tour. We only made 1,000 copies for the fifth pressing, as we
didn't need such a high quantity due to the decline in album sales....plus, we still had over 300 copies
left, and were ordering the next pressing to ensure that NON wouldn't sell out of copies while on
the road. In early 2012, we made the decision to press another 1,000 copies with the sixth
pressing, and a year later, NON released their hiatus. The album has gradually sold copies during
NON's hiatus, and in February of 2017, we pressed another 1,000 copies. We currently have about
500-600 copies left, and this seventh pressing will also be the final pressing. After the remaining
copies of this final pressing are sold, the album will have sold a total of 12,000 copies. Rest
assured, the album will still be available to download. So if you ever lose your copy, you will have the
ability to download all of the songs.
Last, we want to let everyone know that we are running low on copies of NON's
"QuickerDrunkenLouderHarder" E.P. The CD was NON's second release and follow up to "Waiting
for Tomorrow". Both NON and Bad Stain decided to release the EP as a limited edition pressing,
hoping to boost album sales. The EP was released in the summer of 2006, and NON's debut album
had already sold over 6,000 copies in just 18 months, so we chose to make the EP have a limited
press run of 5,000 copies. We had projected that the EP would sell out within three years, but we
were way off. By the summer of 2009, the EP had only sold 2,000 copies, less than half of what we
had hoped. The EP has gradually sold copies over the years, and we currently only have 113 copies
left. The EP is available at InterPunk.Com and once these last copies are sold, it's gone for good!
9-9-17 A New Addition to the Family
I want to announce that the greatest addition to my family in history is now joining the Bad Stain
family. My daughter Nova is helping the label and becoming our new Social Media Manager. She is
finally ready to start learning the music business, and I imagine it won't be long before she is
running the whole label with a staff of her friends signing new talents....lol. Get ready for some
7-9-17 Another New Release from Bad Stain....Amazing!
How amazing is it that we are actually releasing two albums in the same year, after doing jack shit
for so long? The latest release from the label is a split ten inch record featuring my band, Johnny
Laundromat and The Drycleaners, and an amazing band from New York called 946 West. The ten
inch record has a limited edition pressing of just 2,000 copies with the first 500 copies on white
vinyl and the second 500 copies on clear vinyl. The record is available online from interpunk.com or
in stores on 11/24/2017.

10-29-16 Bad Stain Welcomes "Johnny Laundromat and The Drycleaners"

1-2-15 Bad Stain Records 20th Anniversary!
That's right! 20 years. 2 decades. I can't believe that it has been that long. Sure, the label
hasn't done shit in the past few years, but I'm still very happy and proud that I was able to help out
so many amazing bands. Well......not just me. I can't take all of the credit. I have had some amazing
people helping me in the past. Thanks to all of the bands that became a part of the Bad Stain
family. Thanks to Kris and Kelly Johnson who put their tax returns together with mine to start the
label 20 years ago, and thanks to them both for continuing to be a part of the label and helping out
over the years. Thanks to Moe Money, Tad Gurthman, Matt Martini, Sean "40 Man" Johnson,
Brandon "B-Hound" Jamison, "Tokyo" Billy Jacoby and Judith Jacoby, Jen "Cornpick" Gornick, Troy,
"Yort" Bueno, Mel Lemaster, Johnny Laundromat, Colleen Benedict, Cris "MoSkill", Justin Bleach,
"Mohawk" Bryan, Jon "Jones" Woodruff, and everyone who has helped with the label over the years.
I appreciate all of the support over the years.
5-19-14 Just Checking In.....
I wish I had some actual news, considering there hasn't been anything posted in over 15 months, but
the truth is that not much has been happening with the label. We are still selling albums, although
sales are very slow. We probably sell around five or six albums a month........if that. We currently
have no plans of signing any new artists, and we have all been focused on our families and our jobs.
It's funny, having to work for someone now. I mean, I have had plenty of jobs in the past, but I was
self employed for so many years, I miss being able to be the one in charge. Although, I will admit
that when I was self employed I worked way more than I do now, and I always had work on my mind
at all times. So mentally it is much better, and I work 8-16 hours per day now, compared to 12-24
hours per day before. I will admit that physically I work much harder now, crawling around in
fiberglass through 170 degree attics and installing new air conditioners and furnaces. I can really
tell that I'm getting older, as it never seemed that hard when I was younger, and now I feel
exhausted after a hard long day. I do get the chance to spend tons of time with my amazing and
beautiful daughter, as well as my lovely wife......and that makes it all worth it. Rest assured, the
label may not be doing much at the moment, but Bad Stain will make a return in the near
future.......well.........maybe 3 or 4 more years......we'll have to wait and see.

2-3-13 Numbers On Napkins Announces Hiatus
For nearly a decade, Numbers On Napkins has been a huge part of the label, as well as my life. The
thing is, that the band takes up a lot of time. We have performed over 200 shows, practiced six
hours per day, sometimes three or four times per week. Dozens of hours in the recording studio.
Hundreds of hours, locked up in the office working on flyers, web design, social media sites, booking
shows, and writing new material. It's time away from our families, and Tad, Moe and I just feel as
though we need to focus on our kids for the next few years. These are years that we can never get
back, and I personally have already missed out on so much of my own daughter's life, and Tad and
Moe don't want to have the regrets that I feel at times. It can be hard touring, and driving back
to Phoenix all night to see your daughter in a beauty pagent, just to drive all the way back to play
another show, staying up over 40 hours. Ahhhh....so many good memories. So Numbers On Napkins
will be playing their last show on Saint Patty's Day, and we'll see everyone again in about 5 or 10
years when our kids are a bit older and so focused with their own friends and bands that they don't
want to have anything to do with us. Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past
decade. We appreciate all of you!
1-8-12 Bad Stain downsizes and adjusts for change
Well, as many of you know, the music industry has changed a lot over the years. Most people rarely
buy CD's anymore, and everyone downloads music now. I myself still love having a CD. I enjoy having
something in my hand, and I love the packaging because it allows me to read lyrics and check out the
Thank You list for any bands I'm unaware of. The truth is that I don't even buy CD's very often
anymore. I may get 5 or 6 a year from bands that I really like, and of course I get CD's from local
bands, but that's it. The change in the music industry has meant that Bad Stain has had to change
as well. The label keeps getter smaller and smaller, and once again I was forced to say goodbye to
some good friends and great employees. We wish everyone well, and are ready to see what 2012
has in store for us.
4-17-11 Numbers On Napkins sells over 1,000 copies of their new CD!

download starting May 11th. If you haven't got your copy of the new CD yet, you can pick it up online
at www.interpunk.com for just $2.00! Get your copy now!
