Ever wanted a cool little action figure that's somehow related to Fantomas? Mike Patton's Ipecac label is making that a reality with new band-inspired PVC toys. Read on for more info:

We are all about fun and games here at Ipecac. In that tradition, it is with great pride that we announce the 2008 line of collectible Ipecac toys!

Starting in January of 2008, each month will release a limited edition (500 of each) figure inspired by one of our many inspirational artists! These will be available in cool toy stores and comic book stores and we will have a handful for sale on our website at some point as well. Some of the bands will be hawking these on the road, but they are sure to go fast.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
