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.

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 - February 8, 2013


Come on bands and labels, everyone is slacking on sending us cool rock n roll swag.  We need records to list and review.

Best Freeby: The Xrays Calendar - The Xrays took the time to create a cool calendar with Live Pics of the band and pics of their record covers. Pretty sweet.

Best Demo: Burnt Thrones Club

Burnt Thrones Club is a two piece rock n roll outfit from Berkeley and rock they do.  They play a loud noisy fast rock n roll with a lot of blues thrown in the mix.  This stuff is really good.  Sounds a lot like the early rock n roll releases that Big Neck Records put out early on in the labels lifestyle.  Stuff like Sagger, Bantam Rooster, and Blacks.  If we weren't so booked up with releases this year I would be all over this.
