I put up the Jack Jimmy Hoodlums demo on the IPhone App. Download it from the store for FREE. Search Big Neck.
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:
Haven’t received much swag from our sister labels or other labels out there recently, but I will tell you that the bands out there are sending us a bundle of cool stuff. I present to you the best Freeby this week was sent in by The Sworn Liars from Germany! They sent this cool long sleeve tee shirt to us (remember folks, I am a big guy so send XL or above).
Best Demo of the week comes from The Screaming Demons of Trashville. So when the Things from Dublin decided to part ways there were two different camps. Robbie went to the Cheap Freaks and started putting out the best Garage Rock n Roll we have ever heard. In fact I will attest that the Cheap Freaks will take over Europe and the U.S. within the next couple years. The rest of the Things decided to form a new band that would rediscover their love of punk rock by exploring their roots. They built their sound around late 70’s punk rock from the Ramones to the Stooges to the Stiff Little Fingers. Throwing this all together you get a mean fast punk garage rock sound that explodes out of your speakers. This is a band that commands the rock but also seems to just be having a great time playing these songs and this type of music.
Check out a few videos they have up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAx-uNBU2Xo
If you have not heard on the streets, The Livids - Eric Davidson's (New Bomb Turks) new band is releasing a bevy of 7"'s. One on Goodbye Boozy Records that is already out. Another that will be coming out on Oops Baby Records. And of course The Livids gave Big Neck a track to put on a kick ass compilation.
