Next up on our list of exciting releases is the Activations. This is the new power punk band put together by Dan from the Radiobeats. They have four members, Dan on guitar and vocals, Read on Guitar, TFP on Bass, and Max on drums.
What I love about this band is that they play punk rock with a heavy 70's influence in their songs. The song, " Why Why Why" has an incredible guitar that brings to mind punk mixed with those early 70's rock bands. It delivers tough hard chords that drive you into a brick wall over and over. Its f'n great.
They are having their record release show February 22, 2014 but there debut release from Big Neck will be out in April.
Next on our list of 2014 excitement is the band Fire Retarded. Bobby 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."
Bobby Hussy's punk rock band is on tour! Go seem them.

Big Neck Records
A record label with its birthplace in the seamy underbelly of Buffalo, New York. Spawned from the ashes of the infamous Sanctuary nightclub that was home to many crazy nights and many crazy, messed up bands. Big Neck Records was then suddenly uprooted and moved to Northern Virginia, where it now resides.
The only creed that Big Neck Records lives by is to keep crazy, messed up rock-n-roll going strong!
