Hollywood / Mean Jeans on Big Neck Records

 

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...

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.

Best Demo: Twin Guns

I love garage rock n roll and when I read a package that describes a sound that is a cross between Jesus and Mary Chain and the Gun Club...

Best Freebie: The Xrays – “Booze and Speed” CD

The Xrays have done it all; monster hit records in the 90’s....

Hollywood "Love Child" on Big Neck Records
 
Hollywood are from Baltimore. Hollywood likes those giant shiny letters that spell out ‘Birthday’ so everyone knows it’s your special day. They like heart shaped beds because normal beds are boring and if that bed is covered in shag fabric, it’s for your pleasure. Hollywood lists every track title IN ALL CAPS because they are important and yelling. Hollywood is four guys who play loud fast and hard with a sense of humor because anything else would be completely pretentious.

The opening track, “UP ALL NIGHT” jumps into that huge pop punk sound of thick treble range guitars with an opening anthem, they literally have no choice but to get this off their collective chests. The scratchiest static sound from their guitars with beefy thick fingered chords, palming the whole instrument taking over the track, crashing in waves with macho yelling of vocals back and forth between band members. Hollywood can get away with a completely ridiculous track because they’re playing at such speed, so thoroughly thick and massive it becomes an avalanche of spazzy highs and you’re at the bottom of the hill. Drums and bass take a backseat to this front and center distortion.
