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

Go to the store and buy!

A lot of zines and blogs emailed me this year to hand over a list of top records, bands, shows, etc.. for 2014.  Sadley, I ignored most of them and I apologize my friends, next year I will create the lists for you and submit.  Because I ignored them, I thought long and hard about my top ten records of 2014 or at least top ten of 2014.  Here it is:

Musk – S/T Holy Mountain – Best Goddamned album of the year, hands down!

Golden Pelicans – S/T Total Punk – Best new punk in years

Off With Their Heads – Home Epitaph - I know it was released in 2013, but I didn’t listen till 2014

Fire Retarded – Scroggz Manor Big Neck Records – Love seeing Bobby Hussy getting into punk

Sonny Vincent & Spite – Super group of super Groups!

OBN III’s – Third Time to Harm Tic Tac Totally – if you love rock n roll, you must love this band

Pissed Jeans – Shallow (reissue SubPop) – Great reissue and very much needed

Bloodstains Across Buffalo V/A Extra Evidence – If you are from Buffalo you will love this record

Activations – Radio On/Attack Big Neck Records – Best new punk single in years!  Dan Radiobeat kills it.

Sammy Hagar Birthday Bash in Las Vegas – Are you kidding?  It’s Sammy Hagar and we were in a private tent drinking next to the stage! I know this is not a record it was just the best damn time that year.

I remember an earlier single featuring Sal Go, Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb which came about at a Jay Reatard show. That project may or may not still be active but like Jay immediately another project, The NV's was already in the works featuring members of Electricutions & Lady Cop. Washington DC is the beginning of some of the greatest hardcore and it's almost impossible that this wasn't going to turn out well if you haven't guessed already.

I  like when punk still has that homemade feel, if things are too polished it can lose the raw sound that can only happen in one take under less than perfect conditions. Like those home recordings on a four track in the bedroom, if you try to artificially recreate that feel you’ll immediately know it. Something will be different. You can hear it right away with the X-Rays, these guys pulled themselves together just long enough to write a single with alcohol fueling the subject matter and recording session.

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.
