If you bought issue #377 of MRR you know that they reviewed all of our last 4 releases at once.  So, we will put them up here, one for each day.

First off is the NV's with Trust Fun Suicide EP

This EP gives us 3 songs of tried and true garage punk.  Poppy, fast, melodic, and sharp.  Just like your favorite MUFFS song.  These guys don't give you anything new; you've probably heard bands play songs just like these ones many times before.  But I don't think this is the kind of music meant for someone looking for something new.  It's meant for people that already know what they want and they want more of it!  And if you are looking for catchy pub-punk with attitude this will be something you like.

Fatal Figures are the members of The Blowtops latest, a band I'm just getting to know also on Big Neck Records. These guys are making it happen in way way western New York where it's winter six months a year. Buffalo was the big city we would occasionally drive to to either go across the border to drink in Canada or go to Darien Lake and see a huge show. I played with someone from Buffalo who would tell me about all kinds of cool shit that was happening and I imagined living there one day. Their latest builds on that garage intensity with some hardcore influences while keeping that raw, live sound.

Best Freeby of the Week and Best Demo


Best Freeby:

Haven’t received much swag from our sister labels or other labels out there recently, but I will tell you that the bands out there are sending us a bundle of cool stuff.  I present to you the best Freeby this week was sent in by The Sworn Liars from Germany!  They sent this cool long sleeve tee shirt to us (remember folks, I am a big guy so send XL or above).

Best Demo:

Best Demo of the week comes from The Screaming Demons of Trashville.  So when the Things from Dublin decided to part ways there were two different camps.  Robbie went to the Cheap Freaks and started putting out the best Garage Rock n Roll we have ever heard.  In fact I will attest that the Cheap Freaks will take over Europe and the U.S. within the next couple years. The rest of the Things decided to form a new band that would rediscover their love of punk rock by exploring their roots.  They built their sound around late 70’s punk rock from the Ramones to the Stooges to the Stiff Little Fingers.  Throwing this all together you get a mean fast punk garage rock sound that explodes out of your speakers.  This is a band that commands the rock but also seems to just be having a great time playing these songs and this type of music.

Check out a few videos they have up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAx-uNBU2Xo
