It has been brought to our attention that there is a bootleg just been released and is allegedly being distributed by a well known company.
We can categorically confirm this bootleg release is nothing to do with either Leatherface or Big Ugly Fish Recordings. It is unlikely that any of the band will receive any payment from the sale of such releases.
We ask all true fans of the band's music to avoid such inferior products. The official releases can only be bought from reputable traders or direct from Big Ugly Fish Recordings' Official Bandcamp website.
At 12pm UK time, Chris Schaefer AKA - Big Rock, will be laid to rest in Prague, where he lived and died.
Then again most of his time was spent "On the Road". Big Rock was our (Leatherface) European Tour Manager and Toured with the band for many years! Frankie (Stubbs) and I spoke last week about the shocking news that Big Rock had passed away, at home through Carbon Monoxide poisoning from his heating system. This was nothing more than tragic, considering the happy life he enjoyed.
Leatherface have quit the Spring Into Summer Punk Hootenanny gig at Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. HDQ are set to replace the band as headliners.
In Jack Rabid's farewell ‘Rabid In The Kennel’ radio show in December 2011 was a collection of the top 10 best sessions of the show that run on Breakthru Radio from New York, USA for two and half years.
