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