Artist: PINK REASON
Title: Desperate Living
Format: 7"
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Pink Reason is back with a raging slab of dark, desperate hardcore. The introduction of a full band lineup and studio recording makes this the first record of its kind by Pink Reason and the bands first new record in over a year. Expanding upon territory first covered on their "Borrowed Time" single (Fashionable Idiots), the band has unleashed their most aggressive release to date with a sound reminiscent of early Husker Du, The Wipers and perhaps a hint of Totalitar. The B-side features a cover of "Your Girlfriend" by Columbus legends V3." - Almost Ready.

Format: 7"
Label: Fashionable Idiots
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Two more cuts of self-described suicide/drug punk. If you are already a fan, ya wont be disappointed. If you arent...well, these are shorter songs and more straight forward than previous efforts so kick back and open a few veins even if you have the taste of a 17 year old" - Fashionable Idiots.

Title: Ache For You
Format: 7"
Label: Savage Quality
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Ten years in and PINK REASON is stronger than ever releasing what may be their best single yet. Morbid, glam-damaged street rock retoolings of classic, unknown rural Wisconsin outsider rock favorites. Two tracks, straight from the gutter." -Savage Quality.

Artist: PINK REASON
Title: Cleaning The Mirror
Format: CD
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"PINK REASON is always KEVIN DEBROUX and practically never anyone else. The self-released Pink Reason debut seven-inch from 2006 was an itch of such beguiling psychic ache that all the inhabitants of Siltbreeze Island scratched it until they bled. On this first full length, the resident of Green Bay, Wisconsin, continues to ooze muzzy melancholia by the bucket, ably and formidably clearing house in Sanguine Manor, whose previous tenants include Royal Trux, The Jacobites, Phantom Payne, Black Vial, and other marginal inhabitants whose sticky fingers glimmer in stoned adulation. Dominated by creeping synths, stark strums and rickety percussive splats that complement De Brouxs heartscraping vocal catharsis, Cleaning The Mirror journeys far beyond any known perspective, practically insinuating an alternate otherworld where Tim Buckleys Lorca and Jandeks Ready For The House have been hybridized into a ripe-for-plucking masterpiece. Or, shunning hyperbole in favor of acronym, Pink Reasons modern day DIY is very FYI that you should check out PDQ. Touring throughout 2007." - Siltbreeze.

Title: Shit In The Garden
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"In the four years since Siltbreeze released Pink Reasons Cleaning the Mirror, Kevin DeBrouxs subsequent singles and EPs have been concise, individual statements, together charting an atlas of depression and the struggles with a darkness that threaten to swallow him up every day. Compressed into Debrouxs five- and six-minute songs are weeks, months and years of labor and experience, not the least of which are his travels to places where he catalyzed and received underground energies—from Wisconsin and Ohio, through Melbourne and Santiago de Chile, to New York City. Try to map out how these songs are put together, and one finds that the apparent simplicity of DeBrouxs riffs and chord progressions gives way to an epic complexity. Now that the dust is settling and the commercial concerns of a thousand “lo-fi” projects have vacated the underground for a better life in the dorm rooms of America, the influence of Cleaning the Mirror on the past half-decade is clear. And DeBroux is still here, using cheap technology, creating rich, enveloping psychological environments, giving voice to a restless inner life—manifesting drum-and-bass beats, hardcore dissonance, Ian MacCullochs larynx—and blooming like sunflowers amid the debris." - Siltbreeze.

Title: Winona
Format: 7"
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"During a show with hardcore punks Hatefuck, DeBroux and company traveled to Winona, Minnesota. After a five-hour drive to the town, wasted locals, angry punks and gnarled three-legged dogs greeted them by leading them into a commandeered park. Inside the park, DeBroux found "the ultimate punk rock experience" with townies huffing rubber glue and mohawk-brandishing kids starting fights with crusties. The show ended and the locals gave the band three dollars for their troubles. A few kids asked DeBroux and company to chip in the three dollars on a keg. Soon, the crowd dispersed and left the band with no money or place to stay. The band wound up sleeping on an island between Minnesota and Wisconsin and breaking up soon thereafter. He wrote the first Pink Reason song, "Winona," about this experience." - Steve Kobak from Blastitude #25. Second press on red vinyl.
