Primitive Violence's Jean Saiz Packages Pocketknives in Cassette Releases

Jean Saiz is without a doubt, one of South Florida's leading ladies of rock. Her band Shroud Eater has steadily gained an envious momentum in the short time that they've been shredding faces and melting hearts. A talented and accomplished artist, Saiz has added yet another area of expertise into her CV with her fledgling Primitive Violence Records and Visual imprint; which like all her projects, she tenderly dotes over with a caring hand.

Borne out of necessity for Shroud Eater's early recorded products, Saiz has continued to forge on beyond her band with the label. Hers is a boutique approach that harkens back to the incredibly detailed and intimate (read: limited edition) releases of the '90s noise and power violence scenes. Its latest release is Forest of Tygers' album, Bruises. We had a chance to discuss the label with her as well as the legalities of including a knife in the release.

Limited Fanfare Records' Charity Auction Benefits Music Saves Lives

Limited Fanfare's upcoming releases will involve Paper with Dashboard Confessional's Mike Marsh.  
Brian Kurtz is a busy guy. He has a day job; he runs his own local record label, Limited Fanfare; he sends really awesome care packages; and he's setting up an online auction to provide funds for Music Saves Lives. The organization educates people on blood disorders and the importance of donating marrow and blood. It works with the entertainment community to raise awareness and lets fans give in a way that is easy and musically rewarding.

"I chose to work with Music Saves Lives because of their passion for using music as a catalyst to get people involved -- either donating blood to save lives or just to make people aware of the impact that they can have as an individual," Kurtz says. "Plus they give really great benefits to people for doing so." This includes stuff like Free Warped Tour tickets. 

The Limited Fanfare Music Saves Lives Charity Auction eBay site won't go live until June 19 -- it lasts through June 25 -- but you can start plotting your wins here. Get ready to dig your claws into rare and signed items from an impressive list of bands that include Mastodon, Sleigh Bells, Black Lips, Dinosaur Jr., Battles, MonstrO + William DuVall of Alice in Chains, Ladytron, Obituary, and Sebadoh.
