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.

Plates Reviewed in MRR


This record alternates between lurching, tectonic AmRep power-slude, and kinetic, direct, hardcore punk – often within the same song.   Vocals are up-front and in your face, channeling Henry Rollins, mostly Damaged era, but with elements of the first ROLLINS BAND LP.  This is not a bad thing.  The guitarist is a little more experimental with effects than on your typical hardcore record, giving this a slight psychedelic flair.  Good stuff, hope to hear more.
