Golden Boots Fan Art Contest!

Check out the new Golden Boots Fan Art Contest on Facebook!

Are you an artist? Do you like The Golden Boots? Do you collect rare and bizarre records? If you answered yes to all of those things, then this contest is for you! Create a piece of Golden Boots-themed art; could be a painting, drawing, collage, digital creation, music video, iphone app, video game, tableus, mechanical robots, song tributes, whatever. Anything inspired by the music, the men, or the myth of Golden Boots.

The top 5 submissions, as judged by The Golden Boots and PIAPTK, will receive their choice of custom made lathe cut LP: Either Burning Brain (never available on vinyl) or a Rarities LP of out of print or unreleased tunes that you've probably never heard. Each of these LPs will be lathe cut onto either a new, high quality lacquer or Laserdisc... your choice. There will only be 5 of these available and each one will come in custom, handmade artwork by the Golden Boots themselves. All entries will receive free digital downloads of Burning Brain and the Rarities albums.

To enter, simply create your work of art, post it on Facebook and tag The Golden Boots ( & and PIAPTK Recordings (

If you don't already know Golden Boots, check out the free Digital Sampler at for some inspiration!

All submissions are due by Feb. 20th.

Wooden Wand and the Briarwood Virgins - Briarwood LP Preorder

Last year, James Jackson "Wooden Wand" Toth went to Alabama to record a split 7" with The Gum Creek Killers (feat. members of Verbena) a while back and had such a good time, he decided to go back and record an entire Wooden Wand record with the Gum Creek Killers as his backing band. Briarwood is the result of that collaboration. Another Wand album full of great one liners ("We were all at the Wal-Mart for the irony...") and down south pomp and swagger. Limited to only 500 copies, most of which went to Kickstarter pledgers or distributors, PIAPTK only has 50 copies for sale. Only $12 each.

Even more rare, we have a handful of the Letterpressed covers (the records come in full color jackets) that were made as Kickstarter gifts. These came in two colors, each with their own charm, chipboard and white. The Letterpressed cover + The Printed Cover + The Record = $20.

Records should ship in mid-November or so.

Yes, I've finally gotten with the early 2000s and started my own music blog.  It will, of course, contain information about things I like, lo-fi recording, great songwriting, lathe cut records, handmade musical artifacts, free mp3s, found sounds, out of print records, etc.  It will include stuff from PIAPTK artists and other bands that I WISH were PIAPTK artists.  No flavor of the hour blog darlings or Lil Wayne. Only things that most blogs don't bother with for the most part.  But, I will poach the good stuff on occasion.
