Hollywood / Mean Jeans on Big Neck Records

 

I am old. I'm not just getting old, I'm already there and as I start on the long, slow decline, the best years behind me, I rely more on bands like these guys, Hollywood and Mean Jeans to remind me of the good old days when your liver was brand new and you didn't wake up until noon. You didn't care about living with six other dudes and crates of records doubled as furniture. 

Hollywood says "(I Prefer) Drugs" these guys are ready to party, just like that Love Child of a full length...

D.C.’s punk rock vandals The NVs has charmed the District with its brazen offerings since 2011. The quartet-comprised of vocalist Sal Go, guitarist Scott Wilson, bassist Lucas Oswalt and drummer Nathan Armstrong-recently unveiled a debut EP last fall, and will celebrate its release at DC9 this Wednesday. Before the show, I had the chance to chat with Sal about the group’s start, the new EP and future plans.

Best Demo and Best Freebie of November

Best Demo: Twin Guns

                       

I love garage rock n roll and when I read a package that describes a sound that is a cross between Jesus and Mary Chain and the Gun Club, I am all a tingle!  Twin Guns are two New Yorkers doing music right.  They are Andrea Sicco from Oscura and Rockethouse with Jim Chandler from The Cramps and The Makers.  The description of their sound is very apt, leaning a bunch more towards the Gun Club sound.  They dive in with no restraints and pour out a doom ridden, distortion filled, reverb drenched, hook lined, crazy sounding demo.  The best part is that these are just two guys pulling this sound out of their equipment.

I have not stopped listening to this since I got it.  If we weren’t booked up till Spring 2014 I would beg these guys to do a record.  Big Neck needs more money to put out amazing bands like this one.

Best Freebie: The Xrays – “Booze and Speed” CD

 

The Xrays have done it all; monster hit records in the 90’s and turn of the century, toured with the New Bomb Turks, and released a veritable library of singles on tons of different labels.  Well they did a huge favor for all of us, they gathered all of their singles and put them into one massive CD collection that just plain F’N Rocks.  If you are looking for straight up, guitar driven, punk rock scorches that do not last longer than two minutes apiece, look no further.  This CD will fill that need.

It is a great retrospective, we now get to see the progression of the band from the very beginning in the 90’s to early in the 2000’s to present day where they have honed their sound to become even better with age.  They include a new track from their new sessions too.

26 tracks of pure rock n roll.
