A band who seem intent on trying to be this year’s Old Firm Casuals when it comes to most mentions in The Uber Rock Singles Club are garage punk rock leg-ends The X- Rays. Seemingly not content with just releasing a mighty fine split 7" with The Hip Priests. Gary X-Ray and his bunch of reformed punk rock reprobates return via Big Neck Records with a 3 track pink vinyl 7 " all of their own. 'Jameson Shot' kicks things off in fine form too all squealing guitars and overdriven vocals, this is supershitty punk rock to the max make no mistake. 

'Drinking For My Baby' (I’m noticing a them here are you?) on the B side continues the frenzied attack bringing to mind Gary's days spent fronting those Hip Hop Priests. Whilst 'Retaliate Now' the final track here actually has guitarist G-Man conjuring up images of Wayne Kramer at times proving to be a welcome distraction to the usual nonstop chaos the guys conjure up. The X-Rays are back with a bang with this 7", but make sure you get your copy before it’s too late.

05.23.2014

WHAM! ZWAP! KAPOW! VRONK! !OX?-ETH!

Quel bel assourdissant, Batman!

Fire Retarded plays the kind of music that warrants onomatopoeia cards. It’s second nature to them. And on their debut, Scroggz Manor, you have to imagine a ticker of these wonderful wordnoises running behind of your eyes, twixt your auditory channels....

Best Freeby of the Week and Best Demo - Jan 7th


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.
