NEW SHIRTS V RARE EXCLUSIVE TO THE PIFF NATION TOUR 2K13 BAND NAME NOT INCLUDED PICK ONE UP THANKS
This is a very cool day for us here at Tiny Engines. We are so excited to finally announce that we are now distributed exclusively via No Idea Records. If you didn’t know, in addition to being a legendary punk rock label, No Idea also distributes other labels. Yup, awesome labels like Asian Man, Don Giovanni and Poison City to name a few. What this means is Tiny Engines releases should be a lot easier to get your hands on worldwide. So, if your local record stores don’t carry our stuff you can now tell them to pick them up from No Idea!
For me personally, this a bit surreal. As a teen growing up in the 90’s and getting into indie/punk, I can honestly say No Idea was probably the single greatest factor in my exposure to the scene be it amazing records they were putting out or being able to order the latest and greatest from labels like Dischord, Doghouse, Jade Tree, Polyvinyl, etc from their catalog. I can’t count how many orders I placed via their mailorder over the years or how many hours as a kid I spent pouring over their big stapled together distro catalogs. Yes kids, this was before the rise of the internet. And I think that factor speaks volumes as to why we feel so comfortable joining the No Idea family. They are still doing what they’ve always done. There is a level of comfort and trust that I just don’t think we could find anywhere else. Quite simply, No Idea provides a blueprint for where we want to go and I’m happy to be taking this next step with them by our side. We’re truly humbled that No Idea has invited us and we can’t wait to work together to keep growing Tiny Engines. I honestly wake up every day so excited about the future of this label. So, thanks for caring!
Tiny Engines Now Exclusively Distributed By No Idea Records
Tiny Engines is excited to announce that it has joined No Idea Records as part of the long-running Gainesville, FL label’s exclusive distribution arm. Founded in 2008, Tiny Engines is a Carolina-based independent label that has released records from Tigers Jaw, Restorations, Dikembe, Look Mexico, Run Forever, Signals Midwest, State Lines and more. Striving for innovation, creativity and most importantly, inspiring music, Tiny Engines has always fostered a tight-knit community of friends and artists and continues to embody strong DIY ethics and an undying punk rock spirit.
No Idea Records is a legendary punk rock label and distributor which started as a fanzine in 1985, later releasing its first 7” in 1988. It has issued landmark albums from Hot Water Music, Against Me, Less Than Jake and many more. Additionally, No Idea is a highly regarded mail order company and exclusively distributes a wide range of labels, including the likes of Don Giovanni, Asian Man, Dirtnap, Salinas, Recess, It’s Alive, Poison City, and 1234Go! amongst others.
Tiny Engines had this to say of the union: “When it came down to looking for better distribution for our label and bands, there was only one place where we felt it would be an absolutely perfect fit for everyone, and that was No Idea. Their ideals and the way they do business and treat others is exactly in line with the standards to which we hold of ourselves at Tiny Engines. To not only join No Idea, but other exclusive labels such as Asian Man, Don Giovanni and Poison City … it has us extremely excited, to say the least. Our records will now be available worldwide at a low cost from some of the best DIY / punk distributors and independent stores out there. We are humbled that No Idea has invited us to join its tight-knit family and we can’t wait to start working together to keep Tiny Engines and its bands thriving for the foreseeable future.”
we have made ourselves a little tumblr page. we will to try to use it in varying amounts of frequency. we are working on a merchandise page, which we hope to have up and running soon. we will try to keep our show pages updated. we will avoid posting things that are of no concern to the general public. we will try to make everyone happy.
