Another year behind us... our 14th, in fact. We've got big plans for our 15th anniversary in 2013, but for now let us reminisce about our fantastic releases from 2012.

As promised, we featured nothing but original music by original artists. First up was Jack Brag and their second full-length CD, Unbroken White. Jack Brag has been a frequent contributor since the Winter Hours covers compilation of '08 and we're damn proud to have them as part of the Main Man family. Rocktober Magazine has declared Jack Brag the "best cello-core band on the scene today". Unbroken White is available on CD or digitally from iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Spotify and most other online-retail outlets. More information can be found on the album page here.

Out the same day came the self-titled debut album from Acid. These mysterious young men have concocted a formula for power-pop hooks that will make any fan of Fountains Of Wayne sit up and take notice (and second-guess their FoW collection). Acid is also available at all fine digital retail outlets and on CD. For more information click here.

Then there was the so-very-long-awaited CD from Digger Phelps, Falling Over Backwards. We've forgotten now how many times we've promised this one, but we can say with utmost confidence that catalog number MMR009 will finally be filled! Digger Phelps' take on indie rock isn't too far removed from bands like Wilco, Radiohead or R.E.M. Find more information about Falling Over backwards here.

Rounding out our first quarter release schedule was the 6th full length from Frankenstein 3000. Entitled Allerton Avenue, it's easily their most ambitious and consisent collection of songs yet. These guys never fail to surprise us and Allerton Avenue is no exception. Details can be found here.

The next release came from Platinum Load. Their debut, Life Is Pretty Heavy... Can You Handle The Load? is a collection of raw and loud tunes from the self-proclaimed "last rock 'n' roll band". Judge for yourself, but if the world had really ended on December 21 we'd have been OK with this being the only record of Main Man's time here on the planet. Get more information on this CD here.

Then there was the "correction" to an earlier CD from Frankenstein 3000. Back in 2007 we were proud to release their first (mostly) original album Welcome To Planet Omega. Turns out the band was not as proud of it. They'd been through 3 guitarists in a fairly short period of time and not as much care was taken during the recording process as they'd have liked. In 2012 they were finally able to compile the best of the best from the various sessions for the Omega project and presented us with Escape From Planet Omega!

Finally came Call Of the Scrapheap from The Ribeye Brothers. Technically released at the beginning of 2013, the 4th full length from these garage rockers was on our schedule for the end of 2012 but we held it back so it wouldn't get lost in the holiday shuffle. Call Of The Scrapheap is a solid collection of nuggets that will be blastin' on your stereo... as soon as you get your copy here!
