I have been trying to figure out what to release for Big Neck’s 100th record.  This is a big milestone in the label’s career and I wanted something to reflect the moment.  I went through a lot of different ideas like maybe we will repress the Baseball Furies first 3 LPs in a box set with new covers and added material, or let’s do a compilation of all the Big Neck bands from back in the day with new songs recorded at Jim Diamond’s, or let’s find a new kick ass group to launch the label for the next 15 years.  A lot of ideas came and went and then the answer fell into my lap…

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.
