It is with great pride that S.J. Downes and I announce the release of S.J. Downes-II.II.II.

Since we first met one rainy September night at midnight and I convinced him to come record music in the rubble of an abandoned disco in Liverpool, S.J. Downes has recorded at all three Never Records installations in Liverpool, Derry, and London.

Our friendship and his songs have become an integral part of Never Records, anthems for my mission to affect change through music and art.

We are now taking orders for this limited release with records being shipped in January 2012.

This release will contain seven songs recorded by S.J. Downes at all of the Never Records that took place in 2011. This will be a limited edition of ten hand cut and hand printed 12″ records with two artist proofs, with artwork by S.J. himself and me. Each record will cost $50, and proceeds will go to ordering blanks and silkscreens.

This is the first of what I hope is a long series of limited releases of special Never Records projects. For those of you without record players, S.J. plans a digital release as well.
