Sarah Records and Shinkansen Recordings Hello and welcome to the official home page for Sarah Records and Shinkansen Recordings. At some point we will improve this site and put some more information on it, particularly relating to the history of both labels, including a full list of everybody whose life was changed by what we did (or possibly not), but... it's all taking longer to do than we thought. In the meantime, on the left there are links to some slightly random pages that already exist (i.e. they're not up to date!), and if you have any queries about either label, then please feel free to use the Shinkansen contact details.

Suicide Squeeze Records For every beer there is a time, for every season a Fort George collaboration. And this spring, Fort George Brewery and Suicide Squeeze Records have banded together to bring you Suicide Squeeze IPA - a 16-oz venture blending the Northwest’s long love affair with music, art, and craft beer. Out of the ‘90s Pacific Northwest music scene, Suicide Squeeze Records founder David Dickenson forged his own path with artists like Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith, and Pedro the Lion. Starting with a 7” vinyl from local indie duo 764-Hero, the label has grown to include a diverse range of regional rock bands and international artists. Still, their mission has remained true to those early Northwest musical pioneers – to make something for the pure joy of it. The can design for Suicide Squeeze IPA fell into the talented hands of Seattle artist Jesse LeDoux.

Great Anthology: The American Songbag Carl Sandburg often mixed poetry and folk music in his public performances, and his career as a collector and performer of American songs and ballads garnered him almost as much acclaim as his writings in his day. In The American Songbag, his collection of lyrics and tunes to 280 songs, he attempts to form "the song history of America." Included are the words and music to "Foggy, Foggy Dew," "John Henry," "Casey Jones," "Shenandoah (The Wide Mizzoura)," "Frankie and Johnny," "Ain't Goin' Study War No More," and Sandburg's personal favorite, "Hallelujah, I'm a Bum."
