When we asked labels for donations for the March 4th 2016 benefit show, Revelation Records stepped up right away with shirts and music for our raffle that night. Vique Martin of Revelation answered a few questions for us this week in support of their donations. Be sure to head over to their website and check out the billion things they distribute.
1. Thank you for your donation! Why is it important for Revelation to support causes like One Hundred For Haiti?
Revelation likes to support all things amazing. One Hundred For Haiti is an incredible cause, and we trust Greg Bennick and all the people he works with, to make sure every single cent raised at fundraisers like this goes towards changing the lives for people in Haiti for the better.
2. What events or releases do you have coming up that you’d like people to know about?
We are currently working on helping raise money for the Jon Bunch memorial fund, and promoting the benefit show happening March 20th here in Orange County.
Of course we are so sad to lose Jon from our Revelation family, but it’s amazing to see our community come together to make something like this happen. It’s going to be an incredible celebration of Jon’s music.
Other releases in the works include the reissue of the Beyond “No longer at ease” LP, and some cool reissues that people here are really excited about. But I’m mostly excited about the Beyond!
3. What is YOUR favorite Revelation release?
That’s a hard question! I would have had many different answers for you over the years. But I would have to say that the release closest to my heart is the Kill Holiday “Somewhere Between The Wrong is Right” LP. I toured Europe with this guys for a month in ’97. I put out a 7″ for them on my label, simba. And it was the first record I was involved with releasing on Rev when I started working here in 1998. It just holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited the vinyl will be available again in stores on April 16th 2016 for the first time in years! It’s an incredible record. (Sense Field photo credit: Chris Higdon)
