Revival of the Traditional Barber Shop Book Cover Release!

Folks,

In 2013 we started a book, the first of its kind, a modern traditional barber history that revival cover mockup 1 websitedocuments the revival as it happens. We figured why wait 15-20 years after the fact. Our goal is to document history as it is happening. Not only did we document the revival but also the founders and progenitors of the revival. The barber shops featured in the Southern California edition are influential in their communities and have a worldwide impact in the profession.

The delays have been numerous but we plan to have the book completed by the end of the year. A few delays; a photographer burned us for photos so we had to re-shoot, over 4,200 photos to sort through, selecting the right publisher, and life! Finding the right publisher proved to be a major obstacle. We sought out many publishers during the last few years but each had terms and conditions that we felt compromised the integrity of the book so we decided to do what we have done with all of our projects and that is to be independent and self publish. Another great benefit of self publishing is that we found one in the USA which is a major benefit. The drawback with these choices is a higher cost per unit. The big publishing corporations don’t make it easy for independents to publish their own books but nevertheless that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

We anticipate offering pre-orders and barbershops and companies may obtain the book at wholesale. The barbershops that participated in the book can purchase the book at cost. Our publisher offers volume discounts so that is what we’re aiming for. If we get enough pre-orders with considerable volume then we can place orders.

We thank everyone for your patience. Updates will be posted on social media and our website.

For all the barber shops that participated in the book you need to contact us ASAP to complete the interview if you haven’t already done so. Without your interview the book cannot be published and your history will not be told. I cannot stress this enough because the book is a modern traditional barber history we need you stories.

Wild Records Spotlight: Dusty Chance & The Allnighters

Gents,

The third Wild Wednesday has arrived and we continue to celebrate the successful premiere of Los Wild Ones at the SXSW Film Festival. The third Wild Records artist to be spotlighted is Dusty Chance & The Allnighters, From the Wild Records website and I could have not said it any better!

Torment the rockin world with the Wildest demented form of Rockabilly you are ever going to hear. This act features Omar Romero (Omar & the Stringpoppers) & his sadistic guitar pickin, Jamie Lee Bradley humpin the big bull fiddle like a perverted nutcase & Angel Hernandez smackin the hell out of them skins! When Dusty gets that wild glazed over look in his eyes it raises the question is he the bastard son of the Devil or is he just a raving madman? Does he have the nuts flush or is he a card short of a full deck? Forget everything you’ve heard about these animals, this is the kind of sinnin’ you gotta see for yourself!! Hell, buy em a drink and bear witness to The most perverted, primitive, savage rock n’ roll on the planet! 

This is WILD Rockabilly, check out the video below
