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.
Livids - Stop Bleeding
Xrays - Six Pack Style
Cheap Freaks - Don't Get Much Better Than This
Stop Worry and Love the Bomb - Cravecase
White Whale "Widow's Peak" on Big Neck Records
Got this one in from White Whale, a three piece from Buffalo, NY. I remember friends with bands in Buffalo, that was the big time, to play a show out there, maybe cross the border for an underage beer. The coolest. Haven't heard much from this part of the country in a while...way off my radar, and that's probably just because they aren't pressing seven inches probably except these guys.
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!
Be sure to check out new info and updates in news section. You will also find tons of info on all of the Big Neck bands including reviews of their records, tour dates, interviews and more. We will be adding lots of streaming music and video to the MEDIA page so be sure to check it out.
