This record label’s run by Nick Cooper (formerly of Sprawl, now of the Free Radicals), and most of the stuff they seem to have available — on CD-R if it’s out-of-print, which is nice — is from the old Sprawl days: The King of Parking, The Deflorist, The Man With The Yellow Hat, Heat Miser/Seaweed/Ska Mitzvah, all that, along with The Texas Funk Compilation, an AXIOM comp, and an old Presidents’ 12″. He’s also put out some newer stuff, like a Necessary Tension CD and the Free Radicals’ The Rising Tide Sinks All (which is really, really cool), so hopefully there’ll be more on the way.

    To contact Lazy Squid, you may have to send an email to lazysquid (at) sbcglobal dot net for their current releases. The juno dot com email listed here is no good. Don’t know about the PO Box. No web site right now, either.

    They put out at least one Rotten Piece CD in 2010, and there are probably more.

    My label is offering up some of their back catalog from the 1990s, mostly the Sad Pygmy releases. And if you don’t mind me plugging that, it’s http://maydayrecords.com/lazysquid_catalog.html.
