FAREWELL ...MUSIC VIDEO? :(

I will never forget the day we decided to launch Fort Lowell Records in Tucson, Arizona.  There was never a question as to who we would release for our first few records.  I personally did not know the boys with ...music video?, so I had to schedule an official meeting with them to discuss releasing a record for them.  I had heard their music over the airwaves on KXCI, as well as streamed on the World Wide Web, and was a huge fan simply from that exposure, but I had never even seen them play live before!

Paul, Wes, and Justin met me at the local night club, Plush, in their front lounge.  I felt like I had known the three of them for years; they were all simply the nicest guys.  Fort Lowell Records had not yet released a record, so I remember having to explain my vision for what the label would become.  They were very open and trusting of what I wanted to do for their release, and I truly appreciated their partnership and support with their project.

I am very proud to have had the opportunity to work with ...music video?, and I am extremely happy to look back at FLR002 and listen to those sweet tunes Paul, Wes, and Justin created!  Thank you gentlemen for an amazing record!

Below is the post that Paul Jenkins left on the ...music video? Facebook page, bidding a fond farewell to their fans and supporters throughout their career.  Yes, ...music video? Has officially called it quits.  We still have a handful of ...music video? 7inches, so if you still don't have a copy, now is the time to pick one up, before they are gone!

Thanks ...MV?
