Pre-order for CD version coming soon...
After several production and delivery delays, I'm happy to announce that we finally received the Vice Device / Void Vision splits! They look and sound (180gram) amazing, and I can't wait to get them into your hands. It's going to take a little bit longer for us to assemble them before mailing, so we're going to extend pre-orders through the 22nd of this month. If you order between now and the 22nd, you'll receive a limited edition copy of the record with hand-stamping that complements the artwork, a CD, and one-of-a-kind inserts (in addition to the standard insert). We're selling these pre-orders for the reduced price of $15 postage paid. After the 22nd, the remaining copies of the first pressing will sell for $20ppd. So, if you decide to pre-order, you get a limited edition version of the record, and you save money! Pre-order here:

Wanna hear it first? The entire split is now streaming on Bandcamp for free!

And if you live in the Portland area, please join us for Vice Device's release show at Rotture on Thursday, September 26th. They'll be joined by Arctic Flowers, Industrial Park, and DJ Musique Plastique. More info here:

I'm also happy to announce that AP is now the primary merch supplier for Vice Device! We have Vice Device records, t-shirts, patches, stickers, and 1" buttons available! Head on over to to see what we have to offer.

The records should be pressed, packed, and ready to ship by mid-September, so if you pre-order the LP+CD and other VDV merch in the same order, I'll ship you everything at once when the records are done. If you want your other VDV merch sooner, please place two separate orders.

Thanks! -gary

Happy 212! Today marks the release of the third installment in the Accident Prone Archive: the long out-of-print Second ClasS EP, "songs of the streets." Originally released in 1998, this EP hasn't been available in almost 15 years, and it's been a ton of fun listening to it and reminiscing while putting this all together!

Last year we released a comprehensive archive (42 songs spanning 6 releases) of material from The Diseased and Banker$. To compliment this release, we're also unearthing some live footage, and adding photos to Jeremy Danger's written history of the bands.

Remember, everything in the archive is available as FREE digital downloads. You can listen to or download one song at a time, but the best way to get the most out of the archive is to download albums in their entirety, as they come with bonus content such as high resolution cover art and photos.

Enjoy! And as always, please email me if you have anything you'd like to contribute to the archive. Thank you. 212. -gary

Tonight we celebrate the release of the second installment in the Accident Prone Archive: The Diseased and Banker$. Jeremy Danger has been working tirelessly to make this both a comprehensive archive (42 songs spanning 6 releases) and a solemn tribute that we hope you will enjoy. Jeremy has also written a history of the two bands that is more-than-deserving of your time, and can be found here.

Please email me if you have anything you'd like to contribute to the archive. Thanks. -gary
212 is about family and friends. Take a little time today to appreciate those you have, and remember those we've lost.

Appropriately, today is the launch of the Accident Prone Archive! From time to time we'll be releasing rare, unreleased, and out-of-print music from the AP extended family. These releases will be available as FREE digital downloads.

To commemorate 212, we're releasing music from Sunday Drive and Logan, Ellis, Tracey. Now available are the Sunday Drive EP (10 songs), the Logan Ellis Tracey EP (7 songs), and three recently unearthed, unreleased Logan, Ellis, Tracey demo tracks! These three songs were recorded by the band in 2003 and completely forgotten until Ryan found the CD-R a few weeks back. Download and enjoy!

I am currently lining up future AP Archive releases, and looking for photos and videos to begin an audio/visual archive. If you have anything you would like to contribute please email me.

Thanks. I appreciate your interest, and I know the bands do as well. Happy 212. -gary
