So tomorrow is Record Store Day and hopefully you are flocking to the store to pick up Big Neck Records RSD comp featuring The Livids (Eric Davidson from the New Bomb Turks), Xrays from the UK, Cheap Freaks from Dublin, and our very own Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The record is friggin great. The Livids start it off with a blistering punk rocker, “Stop Bleeding”. The Xrays take the A-side home with their charged up guitar riffs in “Six Pack Style”. We then start off the b-side with the Cheap Freaks new song acid tripping, garage scorcher,” Don’t Get Much Better Than This”, and finally Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb close out the record with another great punk rock with front woman Sal Go tearing up the vocals, “CraveCase”.
You may ask, how did this great record come to be?

Over the years, since I put the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums song Loose Power number one on the Pain in the Big Neck Compilation CD, everyone has been asking who are those guys? Where did they come from? Why has there been no more from them? Are there more recordings?
Here is the short version:
