What does Geykido Comet mean?
Geykido is the English spelling of the Japanese word meaning "ultimate anger." Therefore, the name roughly translates to Angry Comet Records.
When was GC born?
We first started working on the label in December 1998. Our first release (the now out-of-print Intro5pect s/t 7") came out in January 1999.
Will you sign my band?
Well, we don't "sign" any bands. We do put out records though!! We mostly release records by our friends or their friends (as do many indie labels) when and if we have the money to do so -- "when and if" being the key phrase. The chances of us putting out your record are less than your chances of becoming a millionaire rockstar. You'd be doing yourself a great service by putting out your own record anyway, at your own pace, with your own rules.
Will you listen to my band's MP3s/EPK?
No thanks, but thanks for the offer!
Have you ever released anything by a band who sent in a demo?
We'd be lying if we said no. Not only were these bands good at proving themselves self-sufficient, their demos blew us away: Peelander-Z, East Arcadia, Pornshot, Jack Killed Jill, Bobot Adrenaline and Four Deadly Questions.
Can you answer a question about one of the bands on your label for me?
Maybe... you can send us an e-mail or you can try e-mailing the band directly. They're not asshole rock stars (i.e. they are approachable) and will probably give a much more detailed answer to your question. But if you can't find the band's contact information, chances are they have broken up, so just e-mail us.
How can I get an interview with one of the bands on your label?
E-mail or write to the band directly. Everybody loves mail!
How can I book a show for/with one of the bands on your label?
Just get in touch with the band. We don't handle booking. The bands are much better at that than we are.
Do you sell t-shirts for the bands on your label?
Like booking shows, all merch is handled by the bands. Go see them on tour and buy the shirt there, along with some cool music. You'll have fun while helping them fill their gas tank!
I wanna use a song off one of your releases for my comp/documentary/art project, how does that work?
Please e-mail us with details and we'll get back to you.
Do you have a street team?
Nope. But if you really want to help us, please support our bands, buy our releases and tell all of your friends about us, what we do and why you think GC is the most wonderful thing in the world. Or email us and we’ll send you some free swag to leave around town!
Can I link www.gcrecords.com on my web site?
Sure! It would be much appreciated!
I can't find one of your releases at my favorite record store, what do I do?
We'd suggest you do an online order. It's cheap, easy and efficient.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Once shipped most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service. International shipping delivery times may vary between 2 and 12 weeks.
Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?
We sure do!
What is this store's return and exchange policy?
If you believe that you are entitled to a refund and wish to return your merchandise: shame on you. Just kidding, email firstname.lastname@example.org and explain your situation and we will accommodate you as best we can.
