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!

A lot of zines and blogs emailed me this year to hand over a list of top records, bands, shows, etc.. for 2014.  Sadley, I ignored most of them and I apologize my friends, next year I will create the lists for you and submit.  Because I ignored them, I thought long and hard about my top ten records of 2014 or at least top ten of 2014.  Here it is:

Musk – S/T Holy Mountain – Best Goddamned album of the year, hands down!

Golden Pelicans – S/T Total Punk – Best new punk in years

Off With Their Heads – Home Epitaph - I know it was released in 2013, but I didn’t listen till 2014

Fire Retarded – Scroggz Manor Big Neck Records – Love seeing Bobby Hussy getting into punk

Sonny Vincent & Spite – Super group of super Groups!

OBN III’s – Third Time to Harm Tic Tac Totally – if you love rock n roll, you must love this band

Pissed Jeans – Shallow (reissue SubPop) – Great reissue and very much needed

Bloodstains Across Buffalo V/A Extra Evidence – If you are from Buffalo you will love this record

Activations – Radio On/Attack Big Neck Records – Best new punk single in years!  Dan Radiobeat kills it.

Sammy Hagar Birthday Bash in Las Vegas – Are you kidding?  It’s Sammy Hagar and we were in a private tent drinking next to the stage! I know this is not a record it was just the best damn time that year.

Jack Jimmy Hoodlum demos on Iphone App


I put up the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums demo on the IPhone App.  Download it from the store for FREE. Search Big Neck. 

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys?  Where did they come from?  Why has there been no more from them?  Are there more recordings?

Here is the short version:

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys?  Where did they come from?  Why has there been no more from them?  Are there more recordings?

Here is the short version:

You may have a little history of the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums from the History of Big Neck.  Basically the band consisted of Sean Garrow, Rob (who was the original bassist for the band Lollipop on Amp Rep), and honestly I forgot who the drummer was.  Hopefully Sean will read this and update me on their history so we can put into the History portion of the website.

They were at one time the premier punk rock band in Buffalo, NY right behind the Baseball Furies.  I remember every band who was big in town or coming through town would ask to play with the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums.  Sean would always play in these tight pink pants and chew gum while he played.  Rob always wore these silver sequined pants that I thought were way too tight to ever fit on any man.  These guys would tear up a stage with the best hook filled punk rock in Buffalo.

They were originally slated to be the first release on Big Neck Records, a split with the Blowtops.  The Hoodlums went into the studio and cranked out 8 classic songs.  They immediately gave me a copy.  Continued to tear up the Buffalo scene, but then they decided to break up.  I remember Sean wanting to move out of Buffalo.  Rob at the time was working for the city in parking violations (he used to sneak up on my car at Sanctuary and leave fake tickets for $1,000,000) and I think he wanted to lead a lifestyle outside of rock n roll.

I was filled with great sadness at learning of their demise.  Big Neck moved the first single to an all Blowtops single.  I always loved the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums stuff so when I finally had a chance to release part of of it, I did on the compilation.  I will still attest to this day, Loose Power is one of the most kick ass songs to ever come out of Buffalo.
