Chocolate Covered Records
It's time for a new release!

You didn't think you'd ever see us again, did you? Well, thanks to a couple of new rock and roll bands in San Francisco, we can't help ourselves from releasing a new split 7". The Shrouds and The Hondettes do garage and they do surf, and they do it in a way that's real: left-over guitars, blown-out amps, drum kits from the thrift store, and vocals that may not know the tune, but definitely know the sound. Its straight from their garage to your ears.
Come Visit the Village!

The Rantouls LP has finally arrived!
Its 10 full songs from the best pop band of the last... well, ever. Get your copy of In the Village of Rantoul right now! Really.
Oh yeah, we are having a bit of a party at the Chocolate Covered Records Factory tonight in celebration. Get in your car as fast as you can, 'cause the bands are gonna start at 10. Or, if your journey would require a quick trip to the local airport, you can watch it live via the internet tubes.

Chocolate Covered Records is going to be at the Absolutely Kosher Label Faire on Sunday, June 27th selling what's left of our junk for cheap prices.
Come pick up duplicates of all of your favorite CCR 7"s for only 4 bucks each and grab a bad ass T-shirt for whatever change you have left in your pocket! I'm guessing there will be some other Bay Area labels there, but all their stuff is gonna be too expensive for you cheapskates!
For all of you who don't have a job and have lost track of what day today is, just use Facebook to remind you.
RANTOUL NEWS The LP is ready to go! We have the 10 best tracks the Rantouls could give us and are having them squeezed onto vinyl platters as we speak. More info to come shortly...
The Rantouls Fun Pack has arrived!

What is Chocolate Covered Records going to do with a bunch of Rantouls junk that no one wants?
Give it away?? you ask. No! That would be stupid!
Instead, we made the Rantouls Fun Pack by combining all that crap with the Frontier Villagers 45 (as played by the Rantouls) and are selling it for only 30 bucks including shipping. (And listen up all you cheapskates from Canada and Europe, you have to pay extra for shipping!)
We only have 25 of these, so get 'em quick! Our operators are standing by.
More new stuff for July!

Chocolate Covered Records is like an unstoppable record-releasing freight train! We're throwing another hit record by another great band onto the already impressive heap. The Saucy Jacks are about to blow everyone's minds with their debut single, Blown Like a Kiss, and poised to take over the country with their US tour starting at the end of the month.
Feel like you can't keep up with the choco-locomotive? Don't worry, it's easy! Pick up the third issue of Chocolate Covered Magazine, then sit back and relax as you catch up on all the latest choco-news.
Tired of all of those Bay Area garage bands from the 90's? Break those boring Supercharger and Mummies records in half 'cause its time for some new sounds!

CCR has sent 20 Rantouls LPs off to our biggest rival in Florida in exchange for 20 Floridas Dying Party Platters. Is this a trade destined to go down in history like the Boston Redsox ditching Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees? Give me 50 years and a Will Finn rookie card and I'll let you know.
The Jinxes and Teutonics may have lost the Battle of the Bands, but they easily get the #1 Trashiest Record award. Two hundred years from now, when deaf aliens take over planet Earth, this 45 will be used to subjugate the human race!
Don't go to those Rock and Roll shows looking like a loser - go to shows looking like a loser with questionable taste in music!
