The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.
Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.
All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc...
If you like it, please go buy it.
Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.
Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.
MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

On my continued quest, I ran across this compilation. There are many great tracks here and is definently worth the download. For a little history, read below...
"The year is 1998 and Lil RedWagon (run by Chris Abbott) is a new label just starting out, and a zine called Tape-Gun (written by Five Seventeen from My Mean Magpie Records) is approaching its third issue. Both are working on separate compilations. Lil Red Wagon focused its sights on the music of Japan and Tape-Gun was compiling artists for a cassette to accompany the next issue. They knew one another and, at the time, it seemed to make sense to pool their resources and funds and release a full blown CD. And the music began to pour in...
As is the story with many of these compilations, funds, time and delays keep putting off the release. Bands break up, lose contact and everything gets lost, only to be released elsewhere or never. However, though the delays happened, the funds disappeared, and bands disappeared Ten; Ten was released on CDR and now is archived here." - quote
