The SFR Really Big / Really Small T-Shirt Sale!

The SFR Really Big / Really Small T-Shirt Sale!

This sale ended Monday January 16, 2012.

We’re cleaning out our office space and clearing away stock to make way for some great new items in 2012! Now is your chance to get some classic shirt styles at our absolute lowest prices ever.

Here’s the catch: this sale only applies to sizes Small and XXL.

Don’t feel left out though: if you’re a medium who doesn’t mind your shirts hipster-tight, or an XL who can appreciate a little extra breathing room, you’re in luck: just buy a size smaller or larger than your regular size. And if you’re among the really big and really small portions of the population that we named the sale after, you finally catch a break – the SFR crew empathizes with the hassle of shopping at these sizes.

Here’s how to order:

1) Check out the available styles in size Small here or size XXL here
2) Decide which shirt(s) you would like to order from the list on the product page
3) Adjust the number of shirts (if you want more than one design) and click ‘Add to my cart’
4) List which shirt styles you want in the ‘Notes’ section of your order form during checkout

Click here to see shirts available in size XXL

PLEASE READ ALL INFO ON THE PRODUCT PAGES BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER! We can’t stress this enough. Sale price only apply to items selected from the ‘Really Big / Really Small’ product pages and added to your shopping cart. Sizes selected from the actual (non-sale) shirt product page will be at the regular price.

New & Exclusive FROM THE VAULT!

New & Exclusive FROM THE VAULT!

A recent trip into the depths of the SFR vault produced a grip of long-lost, near-mythic Strange Famous releases that were thought to be out of print for years. Check out vintage Sage CDs, plus a chance to own a piece of SFR video history with the “Earthmovers” jumpsuit!

Sage Francis – Dead Poet Live Album SIGNED CD

This CD was released in 2004 and only 1000 of them were pressed, making it an incredibly rare and highly sought after album. SFR stopped selling this album in 2006 but while going through our warehouse space we stumbled on a stack that were signed by Sage that same year. For more details, check out the product page here.

Sage Francis – Sickly Business SIGNED CD

Fourth to be released in Sage’s highly popular “Sick of” mix CD series, “Sickly Business” was released in 2004 and only 1000 of these were ever made. Due to it not being mastered, and because more official albums were about to be released, we decided to pull it from the shelves and let it be a limited item. Eventually, a few of the tracks from this mix were included on the “Still Sickly Business” compilation which combined tracks from “Sickly Business and “Still Sick” (both of which were discontinued.) For more details, check out the product page here.

Sage Francis – Still Sickly Business SIGNED CD

VERY FEW COPIES LEFT! We thought they were sold out, but managed to dig up a few more copies from deep in the SFR catacombs. Now SIGNED by Sage Francis! A combination of two discontinued tour discs (Still Sick… Urine Trouble and Sickly Business) with some new tracks thrown in. Released in 2005. For more details, check out the product page here.

B. Dolan “Earthmovers” Video Jumpsuit/Coveralls

These jumpsuits were worn in B. Dolan’s “Earthmovers” video! Though these are actual jumpsuits these are obviously a novelty item (unless you work for a construction company called Earthmovers) and they’re in low supply. For more details, check out the product page here.

WINNER ANNOUNCED for the “Dead Deer Diary” Remix Contest!

WINNER ANNOUNCED for the “Dead Deer Diary” Remix Contest!

“Dead Deer Diary” is patchwork of road-warrior tour tales set to a backdrop created by producer (and 2Mex’s tour partner) Ceschi. The original song appears on 2Mex‘s long-awaited Strange Famous Records debut “My Fanbase Will Destroy You.”

The time has come for us to pick the winner of 2Mex’s “Dead Deer Diary” remix contest which began over a month ago. It was incredibly difficult picking a winner as there wasn’t one particular remix that totally blew all other remixes out of the water. That’s not a knock on the contestants at all; it’s a testament to the collective talent that is now involving themselves in these SFR remix contests.

Oh yeah, so you wanna know who the winner is…

The winner of the “Dead Deer Diary” remix contest is a production duo from Kansas City, Missouri named BARBARIC MERITS.

High honorable mentions go to Dynamo414, Flawed Logic, LEIF(kolt) and Time Crisis who unfortunately have to share the runner-up position equally. Lastly, the “Unique Twist” Award has to go to Ocward Storms.

Obviously the opinions and preferences of 2Mex, Ceschi and Sage weighed heavily into the final decision, but the public votes, the number of song plays accumulated, and the amount of discussion generated by each remix via our Facebook page & messageboard were also put into consideration. As we mentioned previously, everyone who made it into the final round deserves recognition for the great work that they did and we are appreciative of the talent, time, and energy you all put into these remixes.

Massive congrats to Barbaric Merits. They came out of nowhere and surprised us with a well-crafted remix that breathed new life into 2Mex’s “Dead Deer Diary” song which is what earned them the crown this time around. Since Barbaric Merits didn’t receive many votes in our public polling we expect some complaints. Please, feel free to state your case but keep the whining to a minimum and give props where they’re due. Also, next time, make sure your remix or your friend’s remix is undeniably the best. That’ll make it a lot easier for us to judge.

The next SFR remix will be held very soon.  Please add us on Facebook and/or Twitter if you haven’t already so you don’t miss any announcements!

2MEX’s My Fanbase Will Destroy You CD is Available Now! FREE MP3!

2MEX’s My Fanbase Will Destroy You CD is Available Now! FREE MP3!

Legendary Los Angeles underground hip hop veteran 2MEX has broken his silence, returning from hiatus with the ultimate 2Mex album: My Fanbase Will Destroy You.

Click here for the SFRstore EXCLUSIVE  My Fanbase Will Destroy You
!
Orders placed at SFRstore are shipping now. The album will be in stores and at digital sites everywhere on October 26.

The record features 2Mex in the finest hour of his storied 15-year career. Over fifteen tracks, the gifted emcee showcases his charismatic, versatile flow, delivering razor-sharp observations and a signature lyrical wit over a varied selection ground-shaking and groundbreaking sounds from underground hip hop’s finest beatmakers. Appearances and production are contributed by Murs (Felt, Living Legends), Prince Po (Organized Konfusion), Busdriver, Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta), Ceschi, and many more. The album includes the lead single “Dead Hand Control”, produced by Owens and Deeskee (Shapeshifters).

2Mex is infamous for keeping his fanbase satiated with an almost constant flood of releases, both as a solo artist and with his acclaimed group projects (including the seminal indie rap collective Visonaries and Look Daggers, his collaboration with Ikey Owens of The Mars Volta). My Fanbase Will Destroy You, however, took two years to create, and that extended period yielded a record that represents his multi-faceted skills in the most comprehensive and precise manner yet.

A break of this length was an astounding accomplishment for a man who is possibly the most prolific underground rapper ever, with over 35 CD releases in his catalog and too many guest appearances to count. The newly-discovered sense of focus for one project came about in part due to a discussion with Strange Famous Records label boss Sage Francis (a prolific underground legend in his own right), who signed 2Mex in 2008:
“One caveat of the deal was established from the start: this has to be the quintessential 2Mex album,” says Francis. “The best of the best. It will be the next level record. The ceiling breaker. It will be the only 2Mex album that is released in the year that it comes out.”

And so began the journey that led to classic-quality tracks such as the first single “Dead Hand Control,” the anthemic return-to-form pledge of allegiance “Back”, and the introspective “I Just Didn’t Know” (featuring Returners bandmate Stacey Dee). Organized Konfusion’s Prince Po shows up on “What You Know About,” a dedication to the under-the-radar greats that influenced a generation of hip hop. The strain of maintaining fulfilling, lasting relationships in the 21st century comes under scrutiny as 2Mex trades verses with Living Legends homie Murs on “Rollercoaster.” The subsonic bass crunch of “Press Your Luck” brings the new sound of underground Los Angeles to the indie rap masses.

As for the title of the record, 2Mex explains that it is exactly what it seems, a direct dedication to his supporters for the strength and love they have shown him throughout his career: “There’s a small contingency of hardcore fans that have kept me alive, kept my rent paid,” he says. “This record was made for them, for those who have believed, the people that have rolled with me forever, the ones with ’2Mex’ tattooed on their body. I truly believe in them as much as they believe in me, and this album is for them.”
