ASIAN MAN is a VERY SMALL LABEL!!!! I think some of the general public have the wrong idea and believe we're this huge record company with tons of employees, but we’ve only got one phone line (with no call waiting), a fax machine, and just recently purchased a second computer. Depending on how you look at things, this is either a good thing or a bad thing. For me, it's the only thing (or in other words: 'I LIKE BEING A LITTLE LABEL') This is how the label will remain. I do this for the love of music, not for capitalist gain or status recognition. I only work with bands that are ANTI-RACIST, ANTI-SEXIST, ANTI-PREJUDICE, and who support the ideas of peace and unity. And yes, the label is still run out of my parents garage in San Jose, California.
Peace, Mike Park

Classics Of Love
Self Titled CD
Asian Man Records

Classics of Love began in February of 2008 when Jesse Michaels, former lead singer of East Bay mainstays Operation Ivy, joined forces with San Jose's Hard Girls. Initially formed as a project to demo a few songs Michaels was working on, the members discovered that they had good musical compatibility and decided to form an ongoing band. After some early touring Classics offered up their first EP, 2009's Walking in Shadows which served up 6 songs of mid-tempo punk in the traditional East Bay vein: catchy, energetic and gritty. The following 2 years saw the band playing selective shows and slowly developing their sound. During this period, Classics incorporated other musical influences including a few ska and rock songs and most notably a barrage of up-tempo numbers heavily influenced by early 1980's Hardcore. 2011 saw the recording of their self titled full-length to be released on Asian Man Records in February of 2012. The record features a slew of high energy tracks which favors the band's neo-hardcore approach but also includes ska and punk songs as well as a few surprises. Recorded in a raw and unaffected style by local favorite Jack Shirley, Classics of Love's eponymous first record is bound to become a classic in its own right for all those who enjoy punk music which knows its history and looks forward at the same time.
