Next on our list of 2014 excitement is the band Fire Retarded. Bobby Hussy from The Hussy has always proclaimed that he is a punk rocker underneath all of the Hussy's psych filled garage rock. To the point that he claims to have been raised on the Punk Rock of Big Neck Records from a wee age. Well he saw Fire Retarded play very early in their career and decided on the spot that he needed to be in the band. That night they went from a 3 piece to a 4 piece with Bobby on guitar.
Bobby always wanted to release a record on Big Neck, but he didn't want it to be a psych rock record, he wanted to have a Big Neck release that was a real 'punk rock scorcher'. Well Fire Retarded was about to hit the studio when we called to find out if Bobby was ready to make his punk rock scorcher. Literally a couple days later Bobby was sending me mixes of Fire Retarded's new record "Scroggz Manor."
Bobby Hussy's punk rock band is on tour! Go seem them.

Well it's the New Year and Big Neck has some very exciting news. Much of our news has to do with our releases that are coming up this year. The biggest and best news....
Big Neck is releasing Sonny Vincent's new record! 14 exclusive tracks to Big Neck Records. The record will be released in April 2014 on LP and CD. It is entitled, "Cyanide Consomme."
This record is blazing hot. If you think Sonny has slowed down at any point you are mistaken this record has tougher guitar riffs and more hooks than I have heard since The Testors.
