DDC Merchmas, 12/2: "Harshmellow 7-Inch"
Posted at 12:00 PM


TURN IT UP: A record label? Here’s how thing starts. So my buddy O and I are on a call a year back, catching up about bands, jobs and whatever else. “I got a new band going called Harshmellow,” he says. Excited I reply, “Yeah, what’s it all about?” And O tells me about his friend Sarah who’s playing bass on the songs, and the recording process, and how he enlisted Dale and Buzz from the Melvins! As well as Arrow de Wilde from Starcrawler. My interest piqued, I interrupt and say, “Well, hell, who’s doing the design for the record.”

And O snaps back, “You are!” And then I say, “Hell yeah, man, you got it! And what record label is going to put it out?” Cuz here’s the deal, O knows everyone, and has put out so many records over the years, and I canā€™t wait for his answer. And O snaps back again, “You are!”

And that’s where DDC Records was born. On a spotty reception call with while O was whipping through some beach hamlet in South California. Welcome to DDC Records! -Aaron James Draplin, DDC Records
