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

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.
