Just a note to tell you about some things doing well at CD Smash and also just to say hi! I’ve not sent out a newsletter in a while cause we’ve just been too busy and my attention span without med’s is just crazy.

A few upcoming releases from CD Smash Records and our partnership with Fastlane Records includes: Sweet Pain-a re-issue of their debut in combat records. this was never released on CD so we thought we’d re-master it and add a few bonus tracks to make it interesting. Also, look for a re-issue of ‘Ultra Pop” Ultra Pop features members from L.A.Strip rockers “LONDON’ and “Spiders N Snakes”. Both very cool and must have Cd’s. CD Smash is about to sign and METAL Band! Can you believe that? You’ll be surprised to see who’s in this band. Detail’s coming on that! CD Smash and Fastlane Records are working on our last 2 Tribute records right now, The first will be a Cheap Trick Tribute and then around Christmas look for a Tribute To The Beatles. Both will be star studded. Just a note we are still needing a few stops filled on the Beatles Tribute so If you know of a band that maybe interested please contact me asap.
