Razorcake #77 reviewed Big Neck's Record Store Day compilation!
Big Neck Record Store Day 7" EP
As the titled suggests, this is Big Neck's compilation contribution to this year's Record Store Day Celebration. Populating the disc are one track each by the Livids, XRays, Cheap Freaks, and Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. All are fine bits of high-octane garage-influenced punk and I'll go out on a limb and guess the tracks are exclusive to this release--if not, what would be the point then right? If you dig any of the bands, or just like yer swaggering caboose handed to you by bands meting out raucous rock'n'roll, this is definitely worth the green and the scramble. - Jimmy Alvarado

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....

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.
