Here we go again. A recent Matador label advertisement mentioned labels like Alias, Audible Hiss, etc. as part of some screwy piece of satire about how other labels want you to think they're small but-we're-bigger-than-the-Hindenburg etc.
Well, we fucked up. Problem is, we've got nothing against Audible Hiss, a very fine NYC label run by our good friend, R Riggler. We thought it was funny 'cause w/ quality records by the likes of Harry Pussy, Arthur Doyle, Donald Miller, To Live & Shave In LA, etc. what could Audible Hiss possibly have in common with a bunch of college-rock "indies" whose releases clog the used bins?
Just 'cause not everyone got the joke doesn't mean it wasn't funny. Regardless, we apologize to Rich Riggler because a) we truly respect what he's doing, and b) we really wish he'd sell us some records again.
