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.
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?

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys? Where did they come from? Why has there been no more from them? Are there more recordings?
Here is the short version:
