V/A “Big Neck Record Store Day Compilation” 7”

bigneckrsd

 Bart Hart jumps into the RSD game for the first time with this four band compilation with some new acts and some Nineties players as well. The Livids song on this might be my favorite of theirs so far, as “Stop Bleeding” is just straightforward punk blaze with no frills and it goes down with some good burn. Then the X-Rays show up on this thing for a total Nineties flashback (yes the UK band who did the ‘Double Godzilla With Cheese’ LP), and “Six Pack Style” sounds so much like a vintage New Bomb Turks tune it’s remarkable – I don’t ever remember them sounding this good? I guess they have a new LP coming out soon as well. The Nineties really are back.

Rich got around to opening some of the Big Neck Swag we sent him and reviewed a couple items.  Here is the Fatal Figures Review:

Fatal Figures “Caterwaul” LP

fatalfigslp

 Late Nineties Buffalo was actually a pretty happening spot in the garage scene, believe it or not. We were home to one of the best labels (Big Neck Records), the preeminent music fest of the day (Rust Belt Revolt), great record stores (Home of Hits and New World Records), great venues (and bookers) that made it easy for touring bands to stop (Sanctuary, Mohawk and others) and some of the finest bands of the era, the Blowtops being one of them. A dozen or so years later, all of those venues and stores are closed, Bart and Big Neck (along with the fest) were run out of town and relocated to Virginia and all the bands from that era have either left the city or broken up. (I should note we had another great run a couple of years ago, but that’s another story…). The Blowtops persevered through it all, closing up shop some five years ago after European and US tours, four or five full lengths and at least a dozen singles.

Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb on Big Neck Records

 
 
It really warmed my heart to read that Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb came together when Sal and Mike met at a Jay Reatard show in 2008 and decided to start a band. I like to think in between shows in heaven Jay is looking down at Stop Worrying... and thinking, "Why would these assholes be inspired by my stupid shit?" Well, Jay you can definitely hear the loud and fast influence and pop punk timings while keeping things short and simple, jamming those chords into a tight structure with no room for psych jam time. So shut it. One more question, the Shattered Records club is totally over right?
