The big sale we talked about is finally here. We are clearing out PG releases, new and used vinyl, CD's, magazines, DVD's, t-shirts, etc. Everything is super cheap, well below wholesale rates. Check out the list here.
With this large sale comes the announcement of PG closing it's doors. We have been on hiatus for two years but have decided the time has come to officially lay PG to rest. We had a great run, putting out 35 releases in our 7 active years (2004 - 2011.) It was a pleasure to work with all of the artists, printers, labels, distributors, PR folks, magazines, webzines, etc. and of course, the fans and record collectors. We met some amazing people through PG and we had a blast doing it!
This website will become inactive, but if you care to follow the goings on of PG alumnae, please like our PG facebook page. We try to post tour dates, new album releases, etc.
Also, PG founder, J.R,. is starting a new label, Araçá Recs, that will focus on underground/outsider hip-hop and club music released in limited runs of 45's (with free MP3's online.) This will launch this Autumn with releases planned from Antzkilla (Indonesia), MRC Riddims (NYC), and Little Flowers (Baltimore). As of now, we have no web presence, but you can like the Araçá Recs facebook page and we'll let you know when things kick off and we have an offical website. (Note: the facebook page has nothing on it, not even our logo. Give it a few months and it will all fill in.)

A quick note about the PG store. Prices are no longer
postpaid. Shipping will be calculated at the end of
the paypal cart process. So, the visible prices have
been reduced accordingly. Unfortunately, as of July
27th, Media Mail shipping is no longer available for
items that are not "educational" in nature.
So, shipping an LP within the US now costs $7.50 instead
of $2.77. On the bright side, it gets to you faster
(Priority Mail). Also, we have also reduced the prices
on all Public Guilt CD's considerably and added three
new releases to the Distributed
Titles page. We now have copies of Korperschwache's
"Black Dust" disc, Aun's
very rare "Utica" 7 inch, and "Pro Hour,"
the debut LP from Baltimore no-jazz enthusiasts, Microkingdom.

The final Destructo
Swarmbots set was incredible. In true DS fashion,
the crowd had thinned out. Nine folks (including members
took the stage for a set that lasted just under 16 minutes.
A guitar was destroyed about 9 minutes in and the PA
was pushed to it's limits for the full set. It was one
of the most incredible things we have ever experienced.
