I have been trying to figure out what to release for Big Neck’s 100th record. This is a big milestone in the label’s career and I wanted something to reflect the moment. I went through a lot of different ideas like maybe we will repress the Baseball Furies first 3 LPs in a box set with new covers and added material, or let’s do a compilation of all the Big Neck bands from back in the day with new songs recorded at Jim Diamond’s, or let’s find a new kick ass group to launch the label for the next 15 years. A lot of ideas came and went and then the answer fell into my lap…

It is an amazing DC punk record. Filled with snotty punk, great guitar hooks and killer Female/Male vocals.

White Whale "Widow's Peak" on Big Neck Records
Got this one in from White Whale, a three piece from Buffalo, NY. I remember friends with bands in Buffalo, that was the big time, to play a show out there, maybe cross the border for an underage beer. The coolest. Haven't heard much from this part of the country in a while...way off my radar, and that's probably just because they aren't pressing seven inches probably except these guys.
