Peek-A-Boo Records Celebrates 10 Years

Peek-A-Boo Records Celebrates 10 YearsIn 1995, I took some money saved up from working at a coffee shop and issued the first release on Peek-A-Boo Records, The 1-4-5s "Unsafe at 45 rpm" 7". That vinyl EP was essentially a vanity record for my college garage band at the time, a naive and spirited bow to Supercharger, whose Estrus album "Supercharger Goes Way Out" was one of the two records that made me want to play music (the other was The Velvet Underground "White Light/White Heat"). I pressed up 300 copies of the 1-4-5s EP, never expecting them to sell, and never intending to put out another release on Peek-A-Boo Records.

Ten Years later, Peek-A-Boo Records has just issued its 48 release and shows no signs of stopping. To commemorate the label's aluminum anniversary and celebrate the rich catalog of Texas releases, I have launched a new website and placed nearly every catalog item on sale. In addition, some of the early archival, out-of-print vinyl releases (including that first 1-4-5s EP) are available once again, via digital download from iTunes and eMusic.
