It has been over a week since the Big Neck Fest 2014 in Buffalo, NY and I think it is time to review.  Before we dive into Day 1 I want to extend my thanks out to Malik Von Saint who set all of this up.  Without him, Buffalo would have been without this festival for another few years.  He organized the nights, took care of the door, governed the money, and got those bands rolling on time (no small feat). So again THANKS MALIK!

 

Let’s start with Day 1, Thursday June 12...

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
