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.

2014 Releases - Fire Retarded


Next on our list of 2014 excitement is the band Fire RetardedBobby Hussy from The Hussy has always proclaimed that he is a punk rocker underneath all of the Hussy's psych filled garage rock.  To the point that he claims to have been raised on the Punk Rock of Big Neck Records from a wee age.  Well he saw Fire Retarded play very early in their career and decided on the spot that he needed to be in the band.  That night they went from a 3 piece to a 4 piece with Bobby on guitar.

Bobby always wanted to release a record on Big Neck, but he didn't want it to be a psych rock record, he wanted to have a Big Neck release that was a real 'punk rock scorcher'. Well Fire Retarded was about to hit the studio when we called to find out if Bobby was ready to make his punk rock scorcher.  Literally a couple days later Bobby was sending me mixes of Fire Retarded's new record "Scroggz Manor."

It was amazing, 11 tracks of punk rock greatness that I have not heard in some time.  When Bobby said scorcher he was not kidding.  These songs blasted by in minutes with tough guitars, killer vocals, and hooks a plenty.  I have not stopped listening to this record since he sent it over.  It will be on the shelves for Record Store Day.  Line up to grab your copy.

Impose Magazine did a great article on the record and the first single from the record here: http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/fire-retarded-meat-stairs

Fire Retarded's Facebook bio: Started in the summer of 2012, featuring members of Giant People, The New Years Gang and The Hussy. Fire Retarded plays loud garage-punk.
