Rumors

Alex Parker said that the “band” Marriage is Madness that did the song “Free” on the Christmas in Heaven compilation was Zach from Joe Christmas and a friend of his.

Six Feet Deep's The Road Less Traveled album was originally released by R.E.X. Music, while Flying Tart licensed it for general market release. Flying Tart changed the cover without the band's knowledge and they were horrified. Matt Traxler is rumored to have said “It looks like something I'd make fun of”.

There were many announced albums that never came to be: a One-21 live album, a The Huntingtons Rock 'n Roll Radio ep (that was eventually released in a few different ways down the road), and a Joe Christmas release.

Aleixa had a cassette demo - it was recorded for Flying Tart and sold to Liquid Disc Records.

12 Point Buck is Billy from Thee Pirates/Blackjacks/Raised by Wolves/Vicious Cycles.

There is also an unreleased industrial remix of a Fluffy song from their first record, remixed by Celldweller that contains a sample recording of A.A. Allen casting a demon out of a woman.

Dig Hay Zoose did a demo for Flying Tart as well. It is on their Facebook site.

Rumor is that a popular ska band did a demo with Flying Tart before they got signed.
