It’ll have Moviola’s “Yankee Road” b/w HGM’s “Shiloh Town” (by Tim Hardin); 200 copies available at Used Kids, Lost Weekend and the Wexner Center store. The first release of Lost Weekend Records’ new label of the same name is a 7-inch featuring The Guinea Worms’ Will Foster doing “G-A-u,n,t GAUNT” and indie filmmaker Nasli Hovsepian doing “Reba’s Face” (more background and info on this release, plus some RSD background, in The Other Paper); 150 black, 130 purple and 15 tie-dyed available only at Lost Weekend on Saturday.
