On August 3rd, 2006 The Phoenix New Times published an article written by Benjamin Leatherman about Ryan Avery. On August 7th Ryan Avery is contacted (via Myspace) by two film makers from Utah that want to make a short documentary about him. On August 10th those film makers show up at Ryan's house in downtown Phoenix and spend the next 2 weeks filming a feature length documentary and conducting interviews with Ryan's friends, family, peers and critics

PRAY FOR RAIN REVIEWS!
"This is a group of Bay Area weirdo rockers that sound like a friendly version of the BUTTHOLE SERFERS or if MR. BUNGLE wanted to perform for children. The mood of this album drifts back and both between chill stoner vibes and the terrifying experience of realizing you drank too much MD 20/20 and are in for a rough night of flailing and throwing up. The most exciting thing about this album is that I don't believe I've heard much that sounds like it, so it's a nice treat to experience something completely unique." - Maximum Rock N' Roll
"There's been a wave of modern psychedelic music the past few years, and we've been all for it. If you love psychedelia but hate the hippie vibes it usually entails, the new album from Oakland's Turqouiz Noiz is worth your time." - If It's Too Loud
" If you dig Garage/Punk with more than just a tinge of warped psychedelia then you may want to give this a listen." - Thee Psychedelicatessen
An italian blog wrote a nice review about the new freaks of nature CD. here it is translated in english.
PRAY FOR RAIN IS HERE!
Turqouiz Noiz second full length album is finally here and it looks beautiful!

We've got two new items featured products in our online store. First is the "cartoon mouse" T-Shirt, it's an original illustration from artist John-Ross Boyce that comes with a download card for The Funny Uncles "Writin' Songs" album. Then we finally listed the limited edition Turqouiz Noiz Skateboard decks. These are limited edition skate decks made by Maize Skateboards.The three characters on the board represent the 3 different members of the band as men, women and trans. This artwork also includes other Navajo symbolism that can be seen on all sides of the board. This image is meant to be destroyed, this board is light and meant for shredding and grinding.

MR. JAMES KOCHALKA!
Hopefully a week or so before Chirstmas we will have TWO Kochalka Quality releases ready for the masses. And just in case we don't update the website with the news you should follow us on instagram where we post something at least every other day and on our facebook where things get posted regularly too.
Related Records is officially over two years old now! Our first digital compilation of the new year is called "Unlimited Semiosis"
"This compilation is inspired by many things primarily Jean Molino's theory that all music is the result of Semiosis and by Splinter Cakes 2008 Masterpiece "Snapped" which you can listen to here
The concept of this album is simple steal another artists instrumental track and add lyrics/words to it. It can be any genre or from any period of time. You can add to the instrumental if you want but stealing the audio from another instrumental recording is the key ingredient to this project.
The deadline to send in your finished track is November 17th. Please send all of your songs in a .wav format to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have fun and please share this with other artists/musicians who you think would enjoy it."
To stay updated with the progress of this project join to the Facebook event page.
The next digital compilation is called "Everybody's Looking At Their Phone"; we want this compilation to be more than just a digital comp, and we are trying to raise some money to release limited edition post cards and t-shirts with original artwork by David Bessent.
