Family Vineyard Music has an ‘under the radar’ collection of music from Dow Jones and The Industrials. This garage punk band from the late ’70s needed a better PR machine than they had but managed to craft a split LP and an EP before disappearing.

There will also be a 2LP set of the same that adds in a bonus DVD. For the one who wants them all, there will be a 2LP/CD/DVD set available.
