Steven Bradley Debut L.P. is a Critical Smash! New Video "Summer Bliss and Autumn Tears" Just Debuted via New Noise Magazine.

Critics have responded to the debut LP "Summer Bliss and Autumn Tears" from Steven Bradley with open arms and music scribes have consistantly cited Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe when measuring Bradley's strength as a songwriter.

Tom Sevrin of Ripple Effect says "Timeless in their execution, sublime in their production. These songs are so full of melodic hooks, that you can't help but get them stuck in your mid-brain."

Baby Sue made the record their Top Pick and said that "Bradley immediately lays the groundwork for what is bound to be a solid and captivating career in the world of cool and truly inspired guitar pop."

The album has receieved a 9/10 nod from Music Connection, Hits Daily Double called it "a blast of power-pop reminiscent of Big Star" and Ox Magazine called it "a nearly perfect album."

If all that good news wasn't exciting enough, a third video from the album just arrived for its title track. Premiere music publication New Noise Magazine is curating its Worldwide debut and you can see it now on the Porterhouse Video page here!.

Germs Pre-Order Update, Oct 9. Delivery Now Expected.

Hello Germs fans far and wide! We wanted to bring you up to date on the pressing and delivery of “(MIA) The Complete Anthology.”

First off we want to thank each and everyone who has Pre-Ordered a copy of Germs the “(MIA) The Compete Anthology” vinyl debut. We are committed to delivering you the very finest product possible.

This year has been one of the most challenging ever. We began the year faced with the closing of our long time pressing plant and as if that wasn’t enough when we moved to place the Germs into production we were confronted with the Apollo Masters fire in Barstow Ca. This fire destroyed the very lacquers that this project was destined to be cut on.

Once lacquers were manufactured and shipped from Japan we expected to begin production immediately. However, stay-at-home orders forced the closure of our current plating and pressing partners. Because freshly cut lacquers begin to deteriorate as soon as they are carved, they must be plated immediately. But as we had no open plant to plate them at, the Re-Mastering and lacquer cutting process had to be shelved.

With plating and pressing facilities now open and Re-Mastering completed by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, we have finally received Test Pressings for “(MIA) The Complete Anthology.” The tests sound fantastic! Clear, powerful and open… exactly what we would expect using R.T.I. who are widely acknowledged as one of the best plating facilities in the country.

Porterhouse Records approved these test pressings today and we are in the queue to be pressed. But the complications everyone in the chain has faced have rendered what should have been a late July release simply impossible to pull off.

Now the bad news. Because plants have been closed for months we are faced with a backlog on the presses. We have been informed today that the current wait time is 10 weeks. With that in mind we are revising our delivery date for Pre-Orders. The delivery date is now set for on or about Oct. 9.

In fact we believe that we will be able to deliver records slightly before that date but we want to be cautious. We are sorry that this process has become so drawn out and we apologize to our customers who we understand… “WANT THIS RECORD NOW!” We hear you and we are grateful for your patience.

Please hang in there with us as we see this one through and know that we will deliver the best looking and sounding product in the Porterhouse Records tradition. Thank you for your your support and understanding, it’s greatly appreciated!
