"It's hard for me to come up with anything clever to say about 404_Error, but I do have some anecdotes. The first time I met this toothsome twosome in the flesh was at my very first art opening (yeah, I'm fancy, bite my ass). I didn't know who they were for a while and they were playing pool and one of them asked me to explain my paintings and I got really nervous and confused and probably hid in the bathroom and cried. Anyway, I think somehow I realized who they were. Later, Jeff and I were sitting at the DJing table trying to annoy people by aurally spewing our usual diet of Ethiopian funk and Men's Recovery Project about the place. Orange and Ducky sat at a table in front of us and played with some neon pink Play-Doh for probably about half an hour. Both of them were laughing hysterically at each other. It was disorienting, yet charming."

"The first time I saw 404_Error play was on the 4th of July. Or maybe it was the 3rd of July. It was around that one holiday where we blow shit up because we're Americans. Anyway, they were playing some "fest" that had gotten moved to Edison's in Tremont at the last minute. We thought they were supposed to play at 3. The place didn't open until 5. So we sat around outside Edison's on a hot day in the sun waiting. There is an ice cream place across the street called "Scoops." Orange kept going "Scoooooooooops!" in a really funny voice. I guess you had to be there."

The Coffee-Hut Records crew discovered this compatriot in Cleveland-style noise psychosis, Ema, while out for a li'l walk on the world wide web. If you're one of those people who invents new genres by adding "-core" to another word, you would probably call this "chaoscore."

No Cleveland T-Shirts

Some of the bands on this label used to do this monthly noise/no-wave/whatchamacalit night we called "NO CLEVELAND."

The Information I Said Would Be At the Bottom of the Page

Coffee-Hut Records was started in 2003 by Jeff and Kat from Iron Oxide so they could fling the loud fancy music of themselves (as well as that of purveyors of loud fanciness) all over the goddamn Internet.
