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.

Fire Retarded - Scroggz Manor LP/CD
 
Fire Retarded is a good garage rock / punk band from Madison, WI.  One of the things I like about them is they're able to inject a healthy dose of hyper punk energy into their songs and not get bogged down by garage rock cliches.  Also, every song is catchy as fuck.  The record has a perfectly fuzzy recording that suites the whole thing perfectly.  They remind me of the kind of band you wanted to see opening up for JAY REATARD, as opposed to the fucking posers who usually opened up for him.  Go ahead and get it.  I feel like this one will really grow on me over time.

But I must say, '70's NYC punk influence is alive and well, still pulsing through the veins of SONNY VINCENT's work.  Songs "Jealousy," "Supernova," and "Corner Stone" are as good as anything the TESTORS could dish out.  Vincent's voice still as snotty and raw as it was in his twenties. Solid hooks, fast and anxious delivery - it's good.

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.

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!
