Post #156: Joe Pug - "Nation of Heat"



Post #156:  I love the story behind Joe Pug.

The day before his senior year at the University of North Carolina, he packed his bags and headed to Chicago to begin a career in music.

Working as a carpenter by day, most of the recording was done with the help of a friend who would sneak him in to a Chicago studio, using time slots that had opened due to cancelations by other musicians.


After recording the Nation of Heat EP, he began offering unlimited copies of a 2 song CD sampler to his fans, with the idea that they would pass it on to his friends.


To this day, he still offers the free 2 song CD and will send it to you upon request, and with each one he includes a personal note of gratitude.


To do this, email your name, address, email address and how many copies you want to nationofheat@gmail.com


To date, he has sent out over 15,000 copies to all 50 states and 14 different countries.


Unfortunately, I will be missing his show this Saturday at the Turf Club, a great, small venue, perfect for this show.


PLEASE!  PLEASE!  Buy the EP on itunes, request the 2 song sampler, and spread the word.
