A SCAM FOR THE BIG IDEA is a Pittsburgh anarcho-punk compilation album benefiting our local infoshop, The Big Idea Cooperative Bookstore & Cafe.
Over the last 18 years, The Big Idea has become a second home for many Pittsburgh anarchists. The space’s rent got jacked up recently, and it’s likely to get raised again in the coming months. With that in mind, some Filler Distro kids figured it was time we pay The Big Idea back for all the coffee, books, zines, pins, patches and vegan goodies that we’ve nabbed over the years.
We found some cheap recording equipment and decided to hit up our friends to see if anyone wanted to record a track or two for a benefit compilation album. Now that the album’s done, we’re offering free recording to anarchist bands/musicians living near the three rivers, so hit us up!
There's a wide range of sounds on this comp - neo-crust, d-beat, rawgoth, hardcore, skacore, pop-punk, emotrap, noise, etc etc, so you'll probably find a few tracks you like!
You can buy or stream the album on bandcamp. It’s also available for streaming on spotify, youtube, and a bunch of other sites. All proceeds go directly to The Big Idea.
If you're interested in reading more about the project, you can check out Filler's website here - https://fillerpgh.wordpress.com
Also - the Filler Distro is always down to add to our inventory! If you're part of an anarchist band / project and want us to distribute your demo/merch in Pittsburgh, please hit us up! Our email address is on our website. And if you're able to help promote this benefit album in anyway, please do! Everything helps.
Filler is an informal DIY collective that runs a distro, recording studio, record label, zine & anarchist news website in so-called Pittsburgh, PA.
