Bitter Melody Records is pleased to announce that we have just released the demo tape of Macaulay Culkin's new band The Pizza Underground on CASSETTE/DIGITAL.


The limited tapes will be available on their upcoming tour and through the label store:


https://bittermelodyrecords.limitedrun.com

The band features Matt Colbourn on guitar, Phoebe Kreutz on glockenspiel, Deenah Vollmer on pizza box and Austin Kilham on tambourine, plus Culkin doing some percussion and kazoo. They all do vocals.

The Pizza Underground is a parody rock band from NY. The band features members that have all been a staple in the NY anti-folk scene and Mack. The demo consists of a medley of parody versions of Velvet Underground songs making them about pizza.



The band has a tour color on CHEESY YELLOW cassette shells while we have our limited label color on PIZZA SAUCE RED cassette shells. Each tape will come with a download card for a high quality download of the DEMO.

The demo was recorded "live at Macaulay Culkin's house on November 11, 2013". According to The Guardian, the band formed in early 2012 and recently played a Lou Reed tribute at New York's Sidewalk Cafe. Other members include Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, and Austin Kilham.



Here is their official music video:

It's a little more than our usual releases, but this isn't exactly a normal release.

BUT for my punk family, I have added an option on page 5 of my store for a free tape with a purchase of 9.99 or more, so if you buy this tape add the free random tape to your order and you'll get two tapes. You'll get one of my other tapes that I have released.



You have to add the free tape to your cart in order to get it. I'm have a set amount to give away.


Here's the link to the free tape:
