But I must say, '70's NYC punk influence is alive and well, still pulsing through the veins of SONNY VINCENT's work. Songs "Jealousy," "Supernova," and "Corner Stone" are as good as anything the TESTORS could dish out. Vincent's voice still as snotty and raw as it was in his twenties. Solid hooks, fast and anxious delivery - it's good.
I like when punk still has that homemade feel, if things are too polished it can lose the raw sound that can only happen in one take under less than perfect conditions. Like those home recordings on a four track in the bedroom, if you try to artificially recreate that feel you’ll immediately know it. Something will be different. You can hear it right away with the X-Rays, these guys pulled themselves together just long enough to write a single with alcohol fueling the subject matter and recording session.
If you bought issue #377 of MRR you know that they reviewed all of our last 4 releases at once. So, we will put them up here, one for each day.
First off is the NV's with Trust Fun Suicide EP
This EP gives us 3 songs of tried and true garage punk. Poppy, fast, melodic, and sharp. Just like your favorite MUFFS song. These guys don't give you anything new; you've probably heard bands play songs just like these ones many times before. But I don't think this is the kind of music meant for someone looking for something new. It's meant for people that already know what they want and they want more of it! And if you are looking for catchy pub-punk with attitude this will be something you like.
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!
