"Be Part of Something" 2013
Last Year for 2012 we did “Be Part of Something” a FREE COMP with help from PropertyOfZack and Still Alive Clothing that included all the bands that slept over TeamPagano while touring during the year.
2012 totaled 20 Bands in 12 Months. That comp had over 1,000 downloads and a little over 15,000 streams. With help from Dan "Soupy" Campbell it was a lot of fun so we decided to try and make one every year. Hopefully we can push some of the unsigned bands to new listeners. SERIOUSLY... A LOT of your favorite bands on this but please take the time and give the whole thing a proper listen because maybe you will find that new favorite band!!
THIS YEAR IT DOUBLED AND WE HAD OVER 40 DIFFERENT BANDS sleepover with a bunch of repeat visitors as well.
What’s the point of all this ?? Grouping everyone we call family together. Big, Small, Signed, Unsigned, Sponsored or Not.... we don’t care. All these bands have stayed with us as a family. Some have stayed for holidays and some just for a quick nap and shower. From the youngest band “Sudden Suspension” to genre powerhouse “The Wonder Years” we don’t treat anyone differently. Everyone got the same shitty floor to sleep on with the same GK Piggy Pillows to drool on. Nothing more and nothing less, yet some of these weirdoes continue to return year after year. I guess we must be doing something right.
This year along with PropertyOfZack and Still Alive Clothing we are stoked to announce Glamour Kills getting behind the comp as well to help spread the music. It's a perfect example of what this thing is all about, such a huge staple in our music and fashion community... Glamour Kills standing side by side with a small start-up company like Still Alive Clothing all working together to "Be Part of Something." It's very humbling the #goodpeople at GK put forth the effort to help us out this year especially during their busy holiday season!!

So another year is in the books. Our family hopes this comp finds you happy and doing what you love. We’re so proud of what these bands have accomplished this year. We'll always be your biggest fans and twitter.com/mompagano
will always be here preparing metric tons of Mac&Chs and gallons of coffee.
Unfortunately TeamPagano is hurting bad for the holidays...
It's not without extremely heavy hearts we mention the passing of Sudden Suspension Dad, Brian Stasi who passed away last week. We can't imagine the pain the family is going through with the loss of their Dad but as a community we’re there with thoughts, prayers and wishes to help you guys through.
We decided long before this tragic news that "Fields and Fences" was going to be the first track simply because we felt strongly months ago this band deserves to heard in every way possible. Music fans can only hope they find the strength and the courage at such a young age and during these troubling times to "keep moving forward."
So to those boys and the Stasi Family, you have already said it best in the first track of this comp ..
"I'm gonna, keep my head up and keep moving forward... I'm screaming my heart out."
Dedicated to Brian Stasi RIP Homie / Dad
