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 have added Part 4 to the History. Takes you through till the Tyrades first single. Check it out. Sorry it took so long but we don't have an editor.
Hit the new releases section and buy! It's awesome. The guys who made Empty Records a kickass lable back in the day bring their brand of 90's/00's rock and roll to 2013.
3 tracks that have them sounding better than they ever have.
Quote from Terminal Boredom:
"Then the X-Rays show up on this thing for a total Nineties flashback (yes the UK band who did the ‘Double Godzilla With Cheese’ LP), and “Six Pack Style” sounds so much like a vintage New Bomb Turks tune it’s remarkable – I don’t ever remember them sounding this good? I guess they have a new LP coming out soon as well. The Nineties really are back. "
HOLLYWOOD - "Love Child" LP
From the home of the late great Edith Massey comes some brattey '70s inspired punk rock. At they're best moments they remind me of RED CROSS or GREEN RIVER. Almost a Seattle grunge throwback at times with shades of 60s punk and 70s glam with one of those singers that I picture with his shirt off, bleedng track marks and who ends every song line with a cat howling eeeeooowwwww! PRETTY GOOD. (RO)
V/A - "Big Neck Record Store Day Compilation" EP
One track each by LIVIDS, XRAYS, CHEAP FREAKS and STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB. LIVIDS come right out of the gate with a driving rager that's got great guitar and just doesn't stop. It just pulls you in. XRAYS continue with another one that has got a great guitar sound and is delivered with a great sense of urgency. I can't imagine the second side will match the intensity of these two. Turns out I may be wrong. CHEAP FREAKS slow things down a bit, but they don't slow down the intensity. SWALTB close things out with a female fronted number, which also includes what sounds like a tamborine...Jezus. And it's got some wicked guitar. Honestly, this is one of the best compilation EPs I've heard in ages. (KK)
