In turn, Evol Egg Nart releases records not only by the Curious Hair but by many other local artists. "I used to pay for everything," winces Rollason. "Nowadays money's supertight, so the artists usually rise to the occasion and pitch in."
Rollason has released 36 recordings via EEN since its birth in the summer of 1996, explaining that the only reason EEN exists is "to spread music." It's a destination that seems very comfortable for a musician who would rather flip a finger at the music industry than join it. "Evol Egg Nart isn't a business," Rollason explains. "It's an antibusiness. We give almost everything away, so it's not like there's a real flow coming in that helps pay for future releases. The profits are nonexistent, but we've distributed probably somewhere around 15,000 copies of our releases to cool music lovers all around the world. Not all the releases are Miami folk, so I guess EEN is the public display of the many recording projects I've stumbled into. It's like I'm documenting the music I think is good and doing what I can in a grassroots kind of way so that as many people hear it as possible."
