THE BULB 45
This large hole 45rpm record released on Bulb records in 1992 is one of the most compelling items in "does STEEV MIKE exist". This blog was created because recently a box 25 of these appeared on ebay, supposedly found at a garage sale in Ann Arbor Michigan. While I never knew what to think about the Steev Mike issue once I saw this I knew something was going on. Andrews father still lives in Ann Arbor and that is where we are told "Andrew WK" is from. Pete Larsen (who ran Bulb records) also is from Ann Arbor but now resigns in Livonia, Michigan. It is common knowledge that Bulb records was a front (or heavly financed) by Mr. Krier to give that artist known as Andrew WK certain underground credibility by having his first records released on a independant. Anyone who actually listens to a Bulb record will come to the conclusion that James Krier and Pete Larson would hang out make up fake band names and pound out sloppy music to fill up the catalog, this was the early 90's and they figured they could ride the "noise" wave like the Zip Code Rapists or Icky Boyfriends. Pete Larson was very good at keeping the James Krier connection quite- not to many people knew about this and while Petes intentions to run a legitimate record label may have been honest (Bulb did release many records by real bands) after the support of Mr. Krier everything fell apart. Rumor has it the Wolf Eyes bootleg record "Fuck Pete Larsen" was Wolf Eyes responce once they found out that Bulb was a front and most of the Wolf Eyes records that were pressed would sit in his closet.
