Private Airplane (Anyway 070), the debut album from Columbus supergroup Connections, was released earlier this month. The band features singer Kevin Elliott and guitarist Andy Hampel, both formerly of 84 Nash, Times New Viking drummer Adam Elliott, El Jesus de Magico guitarist Dave Capaldi, and bassist Philip Kim, also of Andrew Graham & Swarming Branch. The album is available in Columbus at Used Kids, Lost Weekend, Magnolia Thunderpussy, and via mailorder and download at Midheaven.
Anyway RecordsStarting in the pre-text world of vinyl records and shiny over-priced compact discs, Anyway Records was founded on the assumption that music is to be found in our own backyards and meant to be cheap and affordable, like the founders themselves. Jerry Wick and Bela Koe-Krompecher started Anyway under the guise of a project for Jerry’s excellent Midwestern band, Gaunt. Jerry left the label to concentrate on Gaunt, and Bela continued to pour hours and beers into the label, working with a variety of bands (mostly Ohio, mostly Columbus) including Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Jenny Mae, V-3, and Guided By Voices. Please enjoy!
