Stupid Punk Boy is a benefit compilation for the Translife Center in Chicago. Released just yesterday.The Translife Center provides comprehensive programming and support to transgender individuals including health, housing, and legal support.
The title is a nod to 90’s Newcastle UK label Slampt and a song written by a band on the label called Golden Starlet, it’s also a nod to compilations like Elastic Jet Mission and diy benefit compilations like Fortune Cookie Prize. Great music for a Great cause.

The artwork was done by Sean Äaberg, the artist behind Pork Magazine, and it was mastered by Patrick Haight at Spot-On Sound.
