The former owner of Seattle’s Re-bar, Steve Wells, recalls kicking Nirvana out of their own record release party in 1991:

“Suddenly, Kurt, Krist, and maybe Dave started a food fight. I guess I freaked about the whole situation, rounded them up, including Bruce [Pavitt], and with the help of the doormen, got them out of the door just in time for them all to barf on the curb. Soon after, the WSLCB [Washington State Liquor Control Board] guys approached with their flashlights, and I then declared the party was ‘OVER,’ turned up the lights, and told everyone to leave, making me out to be a total asshole with the crowd. Oh, well.”

Album Announcement.

New Pinkamena Party compilation in celebration of one year of Maud Pie, a few days early for Maud Pi(e) Day on Saturday, March 14th.

Get it here:

What music would Maud Pie enjoy? 

This is a question that is met with the usual rock puns without much further thought. However, we at Pinkamena Party know eclectic/esoteric taste when we see it, and Maud definitely has it. Thus, it is only reasonable to assume Maud would really enjoy listening to more avant-garde genres of music. At the same time, she would enjoy music made with actual rocks, and music that sounds like rocks and stones. Put them together, and you have this album. 

This album is nearly 2 full hours (1 hour, 56 minutes, and 51 seconds to be exact) of nothing but arrhythmic and atonal avant-garde, sound collages, field recordings, musique concrète, soft noise, etc. made exclusively with rocks, stones, and the like. Over 30 different artists made rock sounds for Maud, and we hope that we have made Maud Pie proud on the 1 year anniversary of her episode airing (March 14, or “Maud Pi Day”).

Please enjoy our rocks as much as Maud would.
