Double Crown is proud to announce our latest release - Scelerats Syndicate from the great Norwegian surf combo, The Mobsmen! These masked marauders are set to tear apart the surf music world with their powerful, 12-track debut. You can find out more information about the band, and hear previews of songs from their album, at their MySpace page. Most of the songs are instrumentals, but they sprinkle in a few vocals here and there, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. Who would of thought - Scandinavia is the place to be for surf music these days - The Surfites, The Barbwires and now The Mobsmen!

Friends and associates,
As you may have heard through the grapevine by now, Daptone was broken into last night. Unfortunately, there was a lot of equipment (mics, pre-amps, monitors, turntables, guitars, amps, computers, etc.) stolen and damaged. It is going to take us a while to go through everything and take full stock of what was stolen, and we are not supposed to touch anything until the cops come back to collect fingerprints so we can only guess what's missing from some mic drawers and cabinets.
And, no, we did not have insurance. We had been shopping around with different companies earlier this month but had not signed a check, so nothing was insured. We are working on replacing the gate in front, installing an alarm system, and getting insurance, but it is President's day so it's not going as quickly as we would have liked...
Thankfully, we all still have our health, ambition, tape machines, and sense of humor in tact. You can slow us down, but you can't stop us. Sleep well knowing we here at Daptone will continue to...
Keep putting Soul up,
I've really gotten into the Dap-Tone roster of stars, including Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, and would highly recommend anything released by the label if you are into the 60's/70's soul/funk/R&B sound. Here is a tour MTV did of their studio a couple of years ago:

Just wanted to announce to everyone that The Penetrators are donating all proceeds from the sale of DVD's, CD's and all other merchandise that we have to Spanky and his family. As some of you may know, Spanky is in a battle with cancer and some are asking about ways to help. Sticks and I thought this would be an easy way of helping the Twangler's.
If you are interested, our loot can be purchased here:
Double Crown Records - http://www.dblcrown.com/
The Penetrators Website - http://www.penetrators.com/loot.html
You can get our stuff from countless other ways also. They all buy more copies from us or Sean anyway. Downloads, such as iTunes, are also included in this.
If nothing else, please keep Spanky and his family in your thought and prayers.
When he gets a chance, Spanky updates everyone on this most important mission here:
Many Reverb T(h)anks,
Trace Luger 017
Note: I would personally recommend purchasing Penetrators items directly from the band - they get more money that way, plus they have a wider variety of Penetrators merch than I have available at Double Crown. Please check out the mySpace link above to stay up to date on Spanky's battle against Esophigal Cancer. Leave a comment, become a mySpace friend, and do whatever you can to support Brian/Spanky in his battle against this terrible disease - we're all pulling for him to lick this and get back on-stage delivering the twang and reverb once again!
