If you bought issue #377 of MRR you know that they reviewed all of our last 4 releases at once.  So, we will put them up here, one for each day.

First off is the NV's with Trust Fun Suicide EP

This EP gives us 3 songs of tried and true garage punk.  Poppy, fast, melodic, and sharp.  Just like your favorite MUFFS song.  These guys don't give you anything new; you've probably heard bands play songs just like these ones many times before.  But I don't think this is the kind of music meant for someone looking for something new.  It's meant for people that already know what they want and they want more of it!  And if you are looking for catchy pub-punk with attitude this will be something you like.

Fatal Figures are the members of The Blowtops latest, a band I'm just getting to know also on Big Neck Records. These guys are making it happen in way way western New York where it's winter six months a year. Buffalo was the big city we would occasionally drive to to either go across the border to drink in Canada or go to Darien Lake and see a huge show. I played with someone from Buffalo who would tell me about all kinds of cool shit that was happening and I imagined living there one day. Their latest builds on that garage intensity with some hardcore influences while keeping that raw, live sound.

We have great news, we are building a brand new E-Store for the website.  This way you will get you records much faster.  Normally I end up packing records a couple times a week, now with the new E-Store connected to the warehouse your records will be shipped immediately!

Best freeby of the week:

Butcher Cover S/T LP - Rob from Tractor Sex Fatality and Butcher Cover and now Musk sent me a copy of the Butcher Cover LP.  It is something that scares the primal part of my being. If you like your punk rock/garage rock sounding like a crazely blown out freight train, going downhill as fast as possible, and slightly out of control, you must have this right now.  I do love Rob's vocals and the guitar just grinds out heavy riff after heavy riff, luckily the bass and drums keep carrrying the music forward at a nonstop pace.

 

Best Demo of the Week:

Undergirl from Philly - Girl fronted rock n roll/punk rock and do these girls know how to write great rock tunes?  Yes.  Real good straight up rock with an edge that leans towards the garage rock/punk rock.

Alright it’s been a while since I posted and I’ll be having a big batch of reviews coming soon as well as my best of 2012 list! So stick tight for that!

But! Before we get into the review for the highly anticipated debut LP by Fatal Figures we should give ya a little info about where this band came from…Fatal Figures is made up of three members of the now defunct Blowtops:  a high octane, extremely prolific beast that was a completely revered Buffalo, NY institution. Out of their ashes comes an uncompromising breath of fresh punk air.  Caterwaul is Fatal Figures debut LP (out on our good buds’ label Big Neck Records) and I know this has been in the works for close to two years. There are moments on Caterwaul that make me think of an amped up and bass-laden Bantam Rooster (“Television” and “Party Girl” most notably). The over the top drawly delivery mixed with the staggering guitar riffage harkens back to the Crypt Records catalogue in all the right ways. On the A-Side closer, “Wayne Bent”, you find the band grappling with lumbering, drugged out lows. The nonchalant vocal delivery is a perfect complement alongside the meandering bass and riveting drums that hold this dirge together.  But I think they really hit their stride on the B-Side. Most notably with the EXCELLENT cut, “New God”, where female and male vocals collide to great effect. Overall, this record will pummel you, albeit quickly….very quickly. The whole thing is a flash of wild punk aggression that’s over after nine short bursts…basically you’ll want to catch this while you can…before it flies by and yr stuck on yr couch drunk and listening to the blank hum of a stereo cranked too loud with no tunes flowin’ outta it.
