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 remember an earlier single featuring Sal Go, Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb which came about at a Jay Reatard show. That project may or may not still be active but like Jay immediately another project, The NV's was already in the works featuring members of Electricutions & Lady Cop. Washington DC is the beginning of some of the greatest hardcore and it's almost impossible that this wasn't going to turn out well if you haven't guessed already.

Best Freeby!

Ramma Lamma 7" from Dusty Medical

This is a great pop rock single put out by Dusty Medical.  2 songs of great pop punk rock created and fronted by a husband and wife team from Milawaukee.  The songs have a mild hint of glam rock crossed with a lot of pop rock.  A bit too much pop in there for me.  I still like tough rock n roll.  For what it is, it is really well done and of course its put out by our good friend Kevin Mistreater on Dusty Medical.

Best demo of the week!

Musk - from Rob of Tractor Sex Fatality.  This is Rob's new band after the Butcher Cover.  Musk sounds like a very stripped down Tractor Sex Fatality.  The music moves along like the band is bludgeoning their instruments on the stage and Rob's vocals give it a nice sick twist.  Rob's vocals are very distinct here as in they were in TSF, but in TSF he was covered up a lot by the music, but with this stripped down sound his vocals are right in front, disturbing you with every note.  It sounds great.  I enjoyed all 5 songs and did not want it to end.

We have great news, we are building a brand new E-Store for the website.  This way you will get you records much faster.  Normally I end up packing records a couple times a week, now with the new E-Store connected to the warehouse your records will be shipped immediately!

Best freeby of the week:

Butcher Cover S/T LP - Rob from Tractor Sex Fatality and Butcher Cover and now Musk sent me a copy of the Butcher Cover LP.  It is something that scares the primal part of my being. If you like your punk rock/garage rock sounding like a crazely blown out freight train, going downhill as fast as possible, and slightly out of control, you must have this right now.  I do love Rob's vocals and the guitar just grinds out heavy riff after heavy riff, luckily the bass and drums keep carrrying the music forward at a nonstop pace.

 

Best Demo of the Week:

Undergirl from Philly - Girl fronted rock n roll/punk rock and do these girls know how to write great rock tunes?  Yes.  Real good straight up rock with an edge that leans towards the garage rock/punk rock.
