We ain’t just fishin’ around…

The rumors were true: Stephen Judge, our esteemed owner and publisher, who also operates indie label Second Motion (Bettie Serveert, Church, Tommy Keene, Swervedriver, etc.) as well as the three-store North Carolina record store chain Schoolkids Records (yes, where yours truly worked from 2012-2015) is relaunching Second Motion under the Schoolkids imprint. The move coincides with Judge additionally opening an office in Dublin, Ireland, where he is currently living.
The newly-christened record label’s first signing is Chapel Hill’s Happy Abandon.
Full details tba – for the time being, you can read the official press release at the Schoolkids website. Gonna be a party, everyone!
