From Bubblegum To Sky "My Thousand Years With Robots" Single (1999)
Details: Mario Hernandez (Ciao Bella, Kids On A Crime Spree) released his inaugural single for Eenie Meenie Records as From Bubblegum to Sky back in 1999. Both tracks on this single later appeared on the Eenie Meenie Records full-length album, "Me and Amy and the Two French Boys." The cover sleeve of this single is in generic/VG shape (see images), with ring wear and bending on corners, but the record media is NM/M (looks unplayed). RIYL: Apples In Stereo, Secret Square, Oranger, Kids On A Crime Spree, Dressy Bessy, etc. Crunchy, fun, and jangly guitar-driven indie-pop! The debut single on the independent, woman-owned, record label Eenie Meenie Records (based out of Los Angeles) started by Reiko Kondo.
Description: "From Bubblegum to Sky was the solo project of indie-pop mastermind Mario Hernandez, born in San Antonio, TX in 1967. While attending high school in Alameda, CA, he began learning guitar, and with classmate Jamie McCormick formed the duo Teeny Records (later Teeny Hi-Fi), issuing their debut single "Weekend Go" in 1992. Later rechristened Ciao Bella, the duo scored a major pop underground favorite in 1997 with the LP 1, only to dissolve soon after; seeking to further fuse his twin obsessions - American pop and Japanese kitsch - Hernandez mounted From Bubblegum to Sky, releasing the single, "My Thousand Years with Robots," in 1999. The full-length Me and Amy and the Two French Boys followed in early 2000."--eeniemeenie
