I am old. I'm not just getting old, I'm already there and as I start on the long, slow decline, the best years behind me, I rely more on bands like these guys, Hollywood and Mean Jeans to remind me of the good old days when your liver was brand new and you didn't wake up until noon. You didn't care about living with six other dudes and crates of records doubled as furniture.
Hollywood says "(I Prefer) Drugs" these guys are ready to party, just like that Love Child of a full length...
Don't forget about the Record Release show Wednesday night
D.C.’s punk rock vandals The NVs has charmed the District with its brazen offerings since 2011. The quartet-comprised of vocalist Sal Go, guitarist Scott Wilson, bassist Lucas Oswalt and drummer Nathan Armstrong-recently unveiled a debut EP last fall, and will celebrate its release at DC9 this Wednesday. Before the show, I had the chance to chat with Sal about the group’s start, the new EP and future plans.
The NVs are playing their record release party this Wednesday at DC9 with Cheap Time.
Record store day has come and gone and we have hundreds of people who keep asking us how to get a hold of the compilation because their local record store was not smart enought to carry it. We saved a couple hundred for this purpose.
HOLLYWOOD - Love Child it out too! This record kicks so much ass its unbelievable. If you do not believe me, go to Big Neck's Sound Cloud page and listen to "Up All Night" or "Fingers."
Both of these records are for sale in the Specials link on under the store. Click on it and buy both of them!
So tomorrow is Record Store Day and hopefully you are flocking to the store to pick up Big Neck Records RSD comp featuring The Livids (Eric Davidson from the New Bomb Turks), Xrays from the UK, Cheap Freaks from Dublin, and our very own Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The record is friggin great. The Livids start it off with a blistering punk rocker, “Stop Bleeding”. The Xrays take the A-side home with their charged up guitar riffs in “Six Pack Style”. We then start off the b-side with the Cheap Freaks new song acid tripping, garage scorcher,” Don’t Get Much Better Than This”, and finally Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb close out the record with another great punk rock with front woman Sal Go tearing up the vocals, “CraveCase”.
You may ask, how did this great record come to be?
