The New Red Archives web site is soon to be overhauled. The new format will include both this site and the New Red Archives Media site. NRAM is our new audio book division and will in the coming year feature free 1st chapter down loads from our full cast dramatic audio books and other material for down load. New Red Archives will remain dedicated to classic Punk while NRAM is not punk related and will be portioned on the new front page.

Sept 8th, 2003

Just a quick word about this dreadful bootleg. It's so easy to make a CD - that's why there's so much crap out there. Well let me tell you Anti-Flag care about what they release. More than anything they care about the music they make. On the other hand is this "label" Liberation Records (Or whatever) just want to make cash from other peoples work/idea's/standing etc. The sound is beyond crap. It's not punk, it's not interesting, it's just a good old fashioned mugging and if you buy it, you're the victim. If you haven't heard the mighty Anti-Flag we invite you to buy Die For The Government, (On this Label), New Kind Of Army, (On Go Kart), Underground Network, (On FAT), Or Mobilize (On AF records) - Nicky

Sept 24th, 2002

Just a quick word about the Justin Sane solo album "Life, Love, and the pursuit of Justice". It may not have drums or Bass on it, and it is not an Anti-Flag album, but it is definitely not a cash-in-on-Anti-Flag album. Rather it is a collection of 1st rate songs, well arranged, well performed and raw. It Rocks. -Nicky

Sept 22nd, 2002

I got a CD in the mail this week from Mr Michael Anthony Nigro - (Mikey from Corrupted Ideals to you). Mikey left for Indiana University to study classical guitar and got his Bachelor of Music in 2000, he now is attending the Master of Music program at Fullerton CA. Unfortunately the CD, a program of Classical guitar music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century, is not commercially available - but I have a feeling we'll be hearing more from Mikey. -Nicky

Gibbs will be trekking from his home in the South of France, Garratt similarly from Hanover Germany for this historic Gig. Anti-Product to open. -JohnN

Rumor has it that former Corrupted Ideals members Paul and Mikey are thinking about starting a new band. Mikey has completed his degree in music but it seems he still has a taste for the raw stuff. So a big finger goes out to all the Genesis/Yes wanna be's who said 'punk would never last' and 'they can't even play'. - Nicky

April 1st 2001 What's going on with New Red Archives?
Some people were asking if the site was down because there hadn't been an update in months. Well it was..... almost. The truth is a combination of several things led to the inactivity.
1). I was on tour for 3 months in Europe with the UK Subs and my Labtop was not able, for some reason, to connect with the Internet.
2). We had a virus on the main system, so when I returned we had to re-install everything - still in progress.
3). We are in the midst of a few deals which will radically alter the way we do things. Stay tuned on that one.

For the time being I am pleased to announce that our new distributor is Mordam Records If you are unfamiliar with them (where have you been the last decade and a half), they have a wonderful reputation for all things punk, and sell to stores, chains and distributors both in the USA and all over the world. More on Mordam later.

As anyone knows we have the best mail order service out of any of the punk labels. We send out your stuff, priority mail the same day as we get the order (free of shipping charges) and our prices are great ($12 for a CD). As many of you can attest we often slip in free stuff like buttons or magazines for the hell of it. However with my touring schedule and the fact that I don't want to accept credit cards. - I don't know why? We are looking at restructuring that side of NRA and will make a choice soon to provide an alternative but comparable service. It will most likely be a new address. Again stay tuned. - Nicky

The tour went well - special hello to Runnin' Riot from Belfast, Beerzone from Scotland and the Oozies from San Francisco all who played a bunch of shows with us. Also Madcap who opened for us in Los Angeles and were voted (by the members of the Subs) as the best band to play with us.

Sundays gig at Zeros in Corpus Christi Texas ended with gunfire at the DLP show when a youth who was ejected from the show for fighting returned with gun blazing. In addition to shooting up many of the cars outside the club, he randomly shot into the club. No one suffered serious wounds, but Gizz did get hit in the left upper arm.

Oct 27th 1999 I've got a couple of letters from someone from CWP (Chicano With Pride). In these letters this guy (Manuel) accuses NRA of putting out a KKK CD. After the first letter, I carefully explained that this is not true but still he writes again with childish threats. He doesn't actually say which CD it is - and I don't really care because we are record label not a racist group. As most people know we have a black punk band (Dehumanized), Chicano band members (Dead Lazlo's Place & BadTown Boys) and a bigger % of female bands than any other punk label I can think of. The only thing we have with any KKK reference is the Reagan Youth stuff. I can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to mistake that as pro KKK, but if they did let me tell you - the late Dave I (Reagan Youth's singer) was Jewish (David Rubinstien). If you want to write to Manuel his address is PO Box 582 Santa Paula CA 93061-0582 - Nicky

Oct 27th 1999 The new Squat 7" (on their own label), should be coming in soon - have you checked their new site in Bands section. - Nicky

Oct 18th 1999 There's a lot going down here at New Red Archives. Over the last two years I've been asked what's going on with NRA because we have cut way back on our releases. The two main reasons are: 1). There are two many punk records being released and I didn't want NRA to be part of the problem. 2). The business of music is changing enormously, with this in mind, I have been working with John (Joh) to strengthen our hand on the internet. This site has steadily grown over the past five years. We are now getting around 5,000 hits a week! One reason people keep coming back is because we update very regularly, sometime several times a day - and it's all free. This is all great, but we need to stay ahead to make sure New Red Archives stays one of the biggest hub sites for underground punk. Some of the major areas we will be working on is credit card payments (OK we're late with that one), A movie theater, expanded magazine (NRAPropoganda), and a closer relationship with SubStandard Records which is now distributed by NRA. (Go to the Catalog section to see two new SubStandard releases and two new NRA releases). Of course, as most of you know I still tour and record with UK Subs and Something Big and will be in Europe for 3 months with the Subs starting on 11/15/99. While I'm away Arabella will run mail order, John will run the web site, and Chick will run promotions. - Nicky

Oh yeah and singer/drummer Gizz Navarro is the same Gizz who stood in on drums for the UK Subs on the Social Chaos. - Nicky
