For Famous Class’ 10th release in their Less Artists More Condos series, the Brooklyn labels has rolled something out special with the release of a 7″ from Ty Segall’s rippin’ new project FUZZ, completing the split 7″ they have chosen San Francisco sludge punkers CCR Headcleaner. The limited edition mustard/milky white splatter 7″ is already sold out but you can buy copies of the black vinyl directly from Famous Class HERE.
In loving memory of their dear friend and label partner, the late Ariel Panero, the Brooklyn-based label Famous Class started the Less Artist More Condos series of 7″s. The series gets its name from the epic Less Artists More Condos concerts that Ariel threw, showcasing amazing bands in some strange and unique venues. Ariel’s driving force was a desire to get the bands he believed in the recognition he felt they deserved. This series simply tries to honor that idea. For each LAMC split 7” Famous Class asked one of their favorite bands to provide them with an unreleased track for the A-side. They were then asked to pick their favorite emerging artist to provide a track for the B-side. So far we’ve seen releases from Cass McCombs, White Magic, A Place To Bury Strangers, Ceremony, Future Islands, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Thee Oh Sees, The Mallard, Deerhoof, Half Waif, Ty Segall, Lower Dens, Xiu Xiu, Hunx and many more. Today Famous Class welcomes three new exciting additions to their series. Like how Ariel’s LAMC shows introduced New Yorkers to bands they might not have otherwise discovered – Famous Class hope that this series will do the same.
The digital versions of LAMC 1-10 are currently available for purchase on the FAMOUS CLASS bandcamp page with 100% of the proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music.
