My favorite song is "Stoppless" by riot girl Sindee Kise, a jagged acoustic ballad with an uptempo feel. Other artists include Maybrick ("Hey You"), the Pushovers ("Dynamic"), and label founder Michael Gilligan, who reads some hilarious email "poetry" (this track alone is worth the price of admission).
And you have to admire the label's attitude. The cover has this email from another fan: "Why don't you change your label name? There is already a label named Chapter 11, that has a copyright and all that. It has been around longer than yours, and puts out better music. My band is on Chapter 11 and I don't want people thinking we are on your shitty label."
Get a piece of the "comp that had to change its name." The label boasts that for a $20 charge, you can become a lifetime member of Fake Chapter Eleven Records and will get newsletters and "free stuff from the label for the rest of your life." Support indie music everywhere.
