If You Seek Amy, you're probably a whore too


No news is good news so that's probably why we are always happy about our news in the first place. But there is some news from the front. As reported earlier, brick mower's EP "Floors" is out and about on the label and it's cheap and good and just what you need for the change o' seasons. So far, the response has been positive and we here at VOCR appreciate the good words for brick mower. Not one person has said they hated it so far. Most like it with extreme vigor. So if you are one of the closet haters, may you come out of your closets soon. Message us on our myspace page to order.

So, just to touch on some upcoming releases:
We're saving up right now for our split 7" release with the Indiana label Songs on Tape. It'll be a split between the mid-west's best kept secret, Granny Frost, and our own brick mower. Right now, I'm putting a stamp of January or February on it but it hopefully will be out sooner.

Also, the full-length Bucky Fucking Dent album will be out in December just cause it's cheaper than pressing the 7" (who woulda thunk it, in this day in age?). If you haven't heard Bucky Fucking Dent yet, please do. Have you ever heard an old nostalgic punk talk in an interview about hearing The Ramones and saying something like, "That's when I realized, anyone can play this." Well, Bucky Fucking Dent will make you realize that you can do just about anything, including running for senate or becoming a full time grave digger. The possibilities are endless. Anyway, full length soon. Many songs. Many sleepless night for you.

And also, there's been peace talks about a collaborative effort with Iowa's Make Believe Bombs and the Felt Cat Records. VOCR will be releasing something they send us (we'll package it and make the artwork in a limited run) and they'll do the same for a band we send them. Revivalists, listen here! This may very well mark the return of the defunct Network of Halos (but for how long?). Details are sketchy at best. So please hang in.

Working on a website. Stayin' up all night. Tryin' to avoid fights. The posse stays tight. What? Good night.

Git along little doggie


The brick mower ep is published and ready to be handed out to those in need of a copy for their listening pleasure as well as those who shall inevitably use it as a coaster for their sweaty glasses of iced tea. Either way, as long as it's being put to work, we're happy. We really are excited about the release of this ep, as well as the wonderful addition to the band-drummer Russ Carstens. Shows will be in the works in the near future. Got any tips, places to play? Please let us know by sending a message ( OR If not you're still cool with us. Anyway, we will have direct links up shortly for the purchasing of VOC releases. Actually we're hoping to have some sort of legit website up, but the more I talk about these things, the less likely they are to happen, so I shut my mouth and update you when/if it actually materializes.
For now, you can always e-mail us at for trades/purchase info or just general sage advice from yours truly. That's all for now, kids.

Thanks a bunch,

UPCOMING RELEASE RUMORS...rumors we make ourselves

Ok, so we few here at Viking on Campus have very little money, menial jobs, moments of extreme exhaustion, and moments of extreme boredom. So about now, this is what it's all culminated to. A small label with small pressings. We here are committed to releasing music by friends and bands we love who'd love to work with us. So far, these releases have been few and far between, but in the late half of 2009 we hope to add to our tiny cannon.

In the can the process of being recorded are releases from Mower, The Sling Frame, and Bucky Fuckin' Dent. Never heard of 'em? Can't find a myspace or twitter page for them? Haven't come across their dusty LPs in the backroom of a pawn shop? Well, be patient few followers.

In the meantime, we have copies of Network of Halos "May All the Paperboys Unite" cd and Atlas at Least "The Electric Foodgun" cd available. Thanks for listening.

Getting Started

Hi all,
Just to introduce ourselves, Viking on Campus records is a small (microscopic) record label run by people who don't know much about running a record label. Charming, no? We currently have been putting off production, but we're ready to get back to work with the bands we have on our side.
Things are very exciting here at Viking on Campus. We've finally set up a MySpace, and perfect timing too considering nobody seems to use the damn thing anymore. But you should all pick the trend back up and visit us at We have a few songs and pictures up at the moment, give us some time to evolve. Thanks for reading, more info and updates to come!
