LMNO Free Podcast Download

In anticipation for his new album DEVILISH DANDRUFF WITH HOLY SHAMPOO in stores worldwide November 17th, 2009. LMNO has graciously let the cat out of the bag and released a 20-minute podcast/mixtape for FREE.

When LMNO came to us with this idea, I had no idea it would turn into this. Unreleased exclusives produced by Kev Brown (can you say JAMES BROWN?!?!), DJ Babu the Dilated Junkie, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Mr. Brady of Deep Rooted and so much more!

I almost forgot to mention that the lead off track on the Podcast is the exclusive non-album track Goodlums which can only be found on the LMNO & Yann Kesz THE BRUNT 12" which should be available by the time you read this.

LMNO/LRG 12" Pack

The LMNO/LRG collaboration t-shirt is now available in a special pack which comes with your choice of one or two copies of the new LMNO & Yann Kesz 12" vinyl single of "The Brunt"

The LRG t-shirt was only available for a limited time on LMNO's website and has since been only available at his shows. We only have a limited number of t-shirts left so don't sleep.

This "pack" is for pre-orders only, so once the 12" release date comes around on October 20th, the deal is no longer available and you'll have to cross your fingers and hope LMNO will have some left when he comes to your town.

Click the link below and pre-order now!
