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…
Tuesday 2/3 - Madison, WI @ The Frequency w/ Yonatan Gat, Lover's Spit https://www.facebook.com/events/589619901169620
Wednesday 2/4 - Chicago, IL @ The Empty Bottle w/ MAMA, Le Tour, The Sueves https://www.facebook.com/events/330278077161117/?ref=70 Thursday 2/5 - Indianapolis, IN @ Debbie's Palace of Noise and Laundry w/ Shame Thugs, Dirtbike https://www.facebook.com/events/1580769038832752/ Friday 2/6 - Detroit, MI @ UFO Factory w/ Growwing Pains
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!
Record store day has come and gone and we have hundreds of people who keep asking us how to get a hold of the compilation because their local record store was not smart enought to carry it. We saved a couple hundred for this purpose.
HOLLYWOOD - Love Child it out too! This record kicks so much ass its unbelievable. If you do not believe me, go to Big Neck's Sound Cloud page and listen to "Up All Night" or "Fingers."
Both of these records are for sale in the Specials link on under the store. Click on it and buy both of them!
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?
