The Aquabear (painted here by Athens artist Emily Beveridge) will release a double LP, 24 song vinyl comp in Spring 2015.

Since 2004, Aquabear has worked with over 200 bands and dozens of visual artists and filmmakers. And in that time produced 10 releases including compilations of Ohio music both physical and for free on aquabearlegion.com. But we REALLY want to put out some vinyl. And since we just celebrated our 10th birthday it seemed like a double LP is the way to go. 24 songs from 24 of Ohio’s best bands on 2 LPs. Printed, pressed, designed, and played in Ohio. You can support this project and pre-order your copy at our Indiegogo page here. Please help us spread the word folks!

To help raise money and make some more things in the process we are partnering we a couple local artists for some really cool special items. Charlie Touvell will be making some limited edition prints based on his artwork for the record’s liner notes and even some custom drawings too. We will be making some brand new hoodies and of course have t-shirts, colored vinyl, and countless random Aquabear items we might send along. We sincerely appreciate your support of this project.

Aquabear 2015 will include music from 24 Ohio bands on 2 LPs:
The 1984 Draft, Black Owls, Connections, Dead Hand of Man, Dead Winds of Summer, The D-Rays, The Guitars, Herzog, Hookers Made Out of Cocaine, Hyrrokkin, Joseph Airport, Kid Tested, The Kyle Sowashes, The Motel Beds, Murderedman, Nick Tolford & Company, She Bears, Speaking Suns, Sport Fishing USA, Supernobody, Unmonumental, Weedghost, Weird Science, and WV White.

We have always wanted to make a record, and these are some really amazing songs to do it with. The plan is that if this works we will keep doing it with more and more bands in the future. Here’s a video!

6 Bs and a P: Stats vs. Pills (Season 3, Episode 13)

Welp, that seems to be it for Brian Hoyer. The Browns lose a close one to the Colts at home despite an incredible effort from the defense and Hoyer played yet another terrible game. It’s time for Johnny Football. 3 games left for the 7-6 Browns, who now need to win out and receive a lot of help to make the playoffs after being so close a few weeks back. The 6b1p crew discusses a game only 1 out of the 3 of them watched and get joined by the WolfeMann. Go Browns!

Well, there goes the hope. …Or does it? The Cleveland Browns play a terrible game and lose to the Buffalo Bills to fall to 7-5 and a three-way tie for last with Pittsburgh and Baltimore in the AFC North, all one and a half games behind the Bengals. And to top it all off Johnny Football makes his first appearance after Hoyer throws two interceptions. Football dives in for a meaningless touchdown on an exciting play and also gets run over by a large man and almost gives up a TD. The 6b1p crew talks about it all: Hoyer, Manziel, what a Buffalo Bill really is, Pie Town, and a whole lot more. Special guest: Snider. Go Browns!

The Browns win a game at the last second that (let’s be honest) they probably should not have won and was a pretty ugly victory. But with the playoffs in view and a historically tough division you need every win you can get. So, we will take this one no one at 6b1p is very picky. The crew talks about the Falcons game, what went wrong and what went right and then again about what went wrong. Pie Corner makes a triumphant return and deep secrets are revealed and this seemed like a great time for another Darker Linings Playbook too. Happy Thanksgiving to all and go Browns! Handfuls of pudding for everyone.

Damn right, shirt.

Damn right, shirt.

6 Bs and a P: Peapody (Season 3, Episode 10)

The Browns… lose. Bad. So long first place, it was sweet while it lasted but even we have to admit it felt a little weird and ominous. Like when the cheerleader starts dating a nerd in a high school movie and you kind of know it’s because of a bet some popular kids made. And on top of that, one of the most important places in the world, The Union in Athens, Ohio was severely damaged in a terrible fire on West Union Street early Sunday morning. The 6b1pers do what they do best even in the face of a devastating day: they talk about, try to be funny, record it and hope you give it a listen. GO BROWNS. THE UNION FOREVER.
