Around 2 years ago the Aarght promotions department insisted that this website was to be up and running pronto, and in fact it was soon after. However, various unfortunate decisions during the development process resulted in a rather shoddy looking site that we continue to live with. A bad start only to be made worse by personnel changes, lost passwords and a complete lack of creative direction that starved this here "News" section of anything actually worth reading. Anything that was actually published was incorrect and/or out of date. A number of urgent staff meetings failed to resolve this matter. It took the appointment of Jonathan Wilmott to the role of Internal Motivator to stir the team into action with special thanks to JW's arsenal of team-building activites, vague (yet effective) Powerpoint slides and his candid (yet direct) manner.
In addition Aarght has had to weather the impact of the downfall of Shock Records and our consequent loss of distribution, as well as a few $. We're now happy to say that our stock is distributed in Australia by Fuse Music at www.fusemusic.com.au.
Undeterred by all this white collar commercial nonsense the workers in the Aarght record production department just rolled up their sleeves and released some of the most musical product ever seen or heard, expecting that promotion wouldn't be able to keep up with volumes. These releases have included:
Some of this stuff is still for sale via this website. Not sure which but pretty sure there are Sailors, Unfuckable, Knife Fight and Forerunners on the shelves. Some older stuff is still in stock too.
So considering that we've been lost in the web-wilderness for some time now there sure has been a lot going on at Aarght, but we don't want to create false expectations about the future currency of the news section by writing and promising too much so good-bye for now and look after yourselves and one another.
