moving and no more blog

Hi there...just a note to say that Happy Puppy has left geocities and now we're at:

I'm also discontinuing the blog for now, since all this is a repeat of the news on the website and I'm a little tired of posting stuff twice and reformatting, blah blah.

So there will be no more updates here, and for the moment I'm not planning to delete it, but we'll see. All the old geocities links don't work and I'm too lazy to fix them. Just go the new website and all will be good.

Thanks! See you at our new home,

April release - An introduction to Logan Whitehurst and the Jr. Science Club

I first became a fan of Logan's music back in 2000, during the 'golden age' of I contacted him and we exchanged a few brief emails and I bought a bunch of CDs from him. His "Goodbye My 4-track" album was a Top 10 albums of 2003 for me.

Fast forward to 2004, and Logan is diagnosed with a brain tumor. He fought it with all the strength he had, but sadly the tumor didn't go away and Logan passed away as a result of it in December 2006 at the unfair young age of 29.

Logan's music was fun, thought-provoking, catchy and he had a fantastic gift for melody. With the permission of his family, Happy Puppy Records is proud to release "An Introduction to..", a personal mix of some of our favorite tracks from his downloadable catalog.

If you like what you hear, I would strongly recommend buying any of his albums from his official store, or download all of the albums he made available on plus lots more here at the Jr. Science Club Archive.

Meanwhile, please enjoy this sampler and please share it with someone else. We miss you, Logan.

another March update

Italian artist Paolo Berti's Bessemerr project has just released their debut release on our label. It's a fantastic work of electronic and electro-acoustic music called Fields and it's one you should definitely download!

Lee was recently asked to do an interview and create a online mix for the audioblog Audiopleasures, run by Tiago Martins and his collegues. It's a regular feature on the blog called mY Indie Soul and you can read it and listen to the mix here. Thanks to Audiopleasures for the great opportunity.

March 2009 News

Well, it might appear that things are a little quiet right now, but that's because we've been working on some new projects, some that I can tell you about - others will have to wait.

One thing for sure is Fudge is appearing on the new surf compilation CD by Cordelia Records called Further Beyond The Sea, covering Donna Lewis's "I Love You (always forever)"! The CD is at the pressing plant now and we should have copies soon.

Also, a favorite pop singer/songwriter of ours from the ol' days Jason Kaneshiro is putting together a 10-track Greatest Hits/Retrospective of his music for us that will be available soon for free download.

Plus Lee Rosevere created an album for the Kazoomzoom label, but their site is being redesigned, so we can't tell you about it. Shhhhh....more news soon.
