I have been trying to figure out what to release for Big Neck’s 100th record. This is a big milestone in the label’s career and I wanted something to reflect the moment. I went through a lot of different ideas like maybe we will repress the Baseball Furies first 3 LPs in a box set with new covers and added material, or let’s do a compilation of all the Big Neck bands from back in the day with new songs recorded at Jim Diamond’s, or let’s find a new kick ass group to launch the label for the next 15 years. A lot of ideas came and went and then the answer fell into my lap…

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!
If you bought issue #377 of MRR you know that they reviewed all of our last 4 releases at once. So, we will put them up here, one for each day.
First off is the NV's with Trust Fun Suicide EP
This EP gives us 3 songs of tried and true garage punk. Poppy, fast, melodic, and sharp. Just like your favorite MUFFS song. These guys don't give you anything new; you've probably heard bands play songs just like these ones many times before. But I don't think this is the kind of music meant for someone looking for something new. It's meant for people that already know what they want and they want more of it! And if you are looking for catchy pub-punk with attitude this will be something you like.
Sonny Vincent is releasing another full length in November 2014. Sonny Vincent and Spite, featuring Rat Scabies from the Damned, Steve MacKay from the Stooges, and Glenn Matlock from the Sex Pistols.
