FIRE RETARDED:
Scroggz Manor: CD
Scuffed-up garage rock fronted by a vocalist who switches easily between cocky crooning and blown-out shrieking (with a noted preference for the latter). “Garage” is about as worn-out and oversaturated as a genre prefix can get these days, but Fire Retarded do spice things up with some unorthodox deviations into weirdo psych rock riffage. Comparisons to The Reatards are inevitable—do you think the name’s a coincidence? This stuff is fast, frenzied, and dirty. –Indiana Laub (Big Neck)

Razorcake/Gorsky Press, Inc. just reviewed 3 of our records in issue #82. Go buy and check them out. I will post them up here, 1 a day for the next 3 days. Oddly, they have not reviewed Sonny Vincent's new album.

Trust Fun Suicide: 7”EP
Female fronted, this four piece outta DC slaps together members of Lady Cop, Electrocutions, and SWALTB. Three new garage punk songs which cast shadows of The Runaways tear off into the title track, a jangly fuck you to all the trust fund babies and their inherited swag. Sal Go, the female vocalist, spits the title like a punch to their pretty, cocaine-eaten noses. “Ice Cream vs. Gasoline” is carried by a tight guitar hook like early Bass Drum Of Death. On the flip side, “Cut by a Hog” continues the catchy guitar leading into a clear, chirping solo and Sal’s sloppy Courtney Love voice. While all of this is well and good, they sound like an opening act—there to warm up the crowd, as the material isn’t especially engaging or memorable. But the fundamentals are there and with a little time and experimentation, they’ll be headlining a dive near you.  –Kristen K. (Big Neck)

Revved up punk'n'roll with wailing guitars that don't suck and snarly buncha vocals.  These are just basic drinking punk songs - so obviously don't expect a treatise on the state of humanity here - still, they play with a good level of intesity.  "Drinking for my Baby" is pretty generic tune but the bass and guitar tone is pretty rad. The last tune "Retaliate Now!" has more of a strum intro big late 80's/ early 90's grungy punk a la New Bomb Turks (who seem to be the primary influence of this band) and a bit of Mudhoney's "You Got It".  Nothing too special but not bad at the same time.

Sonny Vincent's on Big Neck!


Well it's the New Year and Big Neck has some very exciting news. Much of our news has to do with our releases that are coming up this year.  The biggest and best news....

Big Neck is releasing Sonny Vincent's new record!  14 exclusive tracks to Big Neck Records.  The record will be released in April 2014 on LP and CD.  It is entitled, "Cyanide Consomme."

This record is blazing hot.  If you think Sonny has slowed down at any point you are mistaken this record has tougher guitar riffs and more hooks than I have heard since The Testors.

This record is blazing hot.  If you think Sonny has slowed down at any point you are mistaken this record has tougher guitar riffs and more hooks than I have heard since The Testors.

If you do not know who Sonny Vincent is, then you have been in a punk rock coma.  Sonny started the Testors back in 1975 and played with the likes of the Dead Boys, The Cramps and Suicide.  In the early 80's the Testors disbanded and Sonny ended up playing over the next couple decades  with members of the Replacements, Velvet Underground, Dead Boys, Husker Du, and Devil Dogs.

In his career, Sonny has released over 20 records of rock n roll.  I can't be more excited or proud that Sonny has chosen Big Neck Records for this release. 

Get ready kids...real rock n roll is coming!
