Small Stone Records, the home and distributor to quality stoner metal and stoner rock from artists such as Acid King, Dozer, and Sons of Otis, was recently flooded due to the storms Detroit endured early in August. Now owner Scott Hamilton needs help to get everything back in order. A YouCaring.com page has been set up to take donations with the following message:

Gear and product were both destroyed and insurance in Michigan is crap, so we're coming together to help Scott from Small Stone with some of the massive expense of cleaning up from this flood.

Scott's support for heavy music over the last 19 years that he's run Small Stone has never wavered and this is a chance to help somebody who's helped us by enriching our lives with great bands and great riffs.

Oof. You can see more pictures of the flood below.

In related news, Small Stone artist Lo-Pan are still kicking off their tour at the end of the month with Black Cobra, a run that includes an Invisible Oranges presented show on September 18 at NYC's Saint Vitus.

Pictures of the flood along with highlights from Small Stone's ample roster appears below.

^probably because they don't have insurance

Probably because insurance doesn't cover everything.

Let's hope, like most people, these guys didn't keep their good records close to the floor. Sucks.

When 2:31 grows up and owns property, he'll find out that Flood insurance isn't easy to come by. Enjoy the rest of high school.

Were they headquartered in a basement? I'm really sorry this happened, but c'mon man...

3:04-Exactly.

3:06-Literally 5 seconds of a Google search would have revealed that Detroit just had historic flooding.

3:54 - no shit. What 5 seconds of Google searching does not reveal is if all their shit was in a basement.

Obviously they're hippies and not skinheads.

5:33 you're posting on Brooklyn Vegan about Small Stone being hipsters…if you had any clue, you might hurt yourself, you bag of excrement.

^ lol, of course it has. Why doesn't he just flex some of that First World white male privilege and go to the bank and ask for a loan?

Could it have something to do with the fact that he's spent his entire adult life trying to avoid getting a real job or something?

4:25- I don't believe that I have to post this, but the flooding was bad enough that it didn't matter if their shit was in a basement. Understand?

The sectional and entertainment center are irreplaceable.

This dude just wants $ to fix the basement of his house.

Quit being a freeloader, and get your shit together.

Irony is that 3:14 is a First World White Male, regardless of how bad he wishes he wasn't.

lol, stupid sausages. It's fucking Detroit....you can't afford an above ground space for your office? What's rent on a office space, like $25 a month?

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2014 1:54 PM

Ok, so 1:43 has no idea what irony is.
