Here’s the song “b-sides” from the upcoming Levitations 7” called “partners in crime”. Will be out soon. More news to come asap. Some more new releases are coming out the next days.
because my life is busy as usual.
There are some new releases out now. You can find a few words about these in the older news:
Valley Boys - dto. 12”
Wetbrain - deeemo Tape
The Light - demo Tape
aaaand the new Low Culture 7”. This is a co-release with my buddy Julian Drunken Sailor Records:
Low Culture - Evil / Slave To You 7”
Scrappy, melodic garagepunk from Las Cruces, NM. Members of The Marked Men and Shang-A-Lang. In late 2011, when it was clear that Shang-A-Lang was coming to an end, Chris asked Sam and Cade (of Total Jock) if they wanted to start a new band. Low Culture practiced a few times as a three-piece, but a few weeks later Joe (Marked Men/Shang-A-Lang) moved back to Las Cruces and joined the band. Low Culture’s first show was in early November 2011 was at Shang-A-Lang’s last show and the band’s been moving full steam ahead ever since. With a few short regional trips and a tour of the Northeast and Canada with Iron Chic in support of their debut 7” under their belt, they’re showing no signs of slowing down. A European tour is in the works for March of 2013 as well as many US dates as their work schedules will allow. Low Culture plays catchy garage punk that while not far removed from some of the member’s previous project, Shang-A-Lang, has a lot less emphasis on riffs and blown out recordings, and more emphasis on melody and crisp (while not necessarily “over-produced”) recordings. Produced by Mark Ryan (Marked Men/Mind Spiders) in Fort Worth, mastered by Dave Williams (Crusades, Steve Adamyk Band) in Ottawa. This is their 2nd 7” after their debut lp for Dirtnap Records just came out a few weeks ago.

The New Flesh is the other band of my body Bryan from Neon Piss and other people who play in very good and hip bands. Brilliant dark punk. I also will put out their lp next year: www.thenewfleshoakland.blogspot.com
Wetbrain are from Cleveland and for sure these guys were in bands like H100s, Gordon Solie Motherfuckers, Inmates, Darvocets, Nine Shocks Terror, Annihilation Time, Midnight bla bla bla and play amazing hc/ punk. You can find all songs here:
The Light are the new band of Ruby from No Statik and they rule. They just did a quick demo recording for the subversion fest they will play this weekend in Oakland and I’ll do some tapes for Europe then. Wanna listen to all songs ?
Valley Boys are the new band of my good friend Jon Sharron who used to be in bands like Brutal Knights, Uranus, Chokehold and some more and also play in Hassler and Career Suicide. This band also has folks from School Jerks and Vapids and it’s nothing but great punk rock: boys666.bandcamp.com/

First Song of the new Street Eaters 12”. Will be out right in time for their first European tour. Please write firstname.lastname@example.org if you wanna do a show. There are still some gaps to fill. The band kills it with that record.

am on the road with Neon Piss right now. First press of their record is sold out. Will get the repress in 3-4 weeks. Watch out.
Foreign Objects and Tiny Ghost 7”s will be out the 20th june.
Don’t miss Neon Piss live. Best band i have seen in years.
Neon Piss LP came out last week and i just have 100 copies left I’ll take with me on their tour starting this friday. Be sure you’ll buy a copy when you see them live as i am not sure when i can afford a repress. Hopefully soon. It costs 10,-€ and 6,50€ wholesale. Here is what our friend Robert Collins (Mrr, Terminal Escape Blog, No Statik etc. ) wrote about the LP:
“Playing music is a challenge…if you want it to be good. If you want your music to mean something, then it needs to speak to people the minute it hits their ears, and that is the challenge. NEON PISS have been crafting their debut vinyl release for nearly two years, but you get the impression that this was an inevitable result - a vision realized when these four dudes started playing punk together. Everything about NEON PISS sounds familiar, you know how you are going to feel as soon as you hear the opening swagger of “Tabula Rasa,” and they are every bit as good as you hope they are going to be. An LP full of songs that will make you feel instantly comfortable - you might have seen this movie, you’ve just never seen it acted quite this well, and the production this time around is sheer perfection. You are welcome to dismiss this as some more of that melodic punk that you are too cool to admit that you like, but you would be a fool. Yes, the songs are catchy, and yes NEON PISS will get stuck in your head and even sometimes put a spring in your step, but this shit is deep and these songs are as close to utter brilliance as I can ever remember hearing.”
Check them out live. You can find the dates here: www.trapdoor-tourz.de
Also the Stoic Violence Tape is out too.
Stoic Violence - demo Tape (100 copies available, Price: 4,-€, Wholesale: 2,90€)
Debut demo from the newest southern Californian HC band. Mixing elements of classic USHC along the lines NYHC and the Boston crew but mixing in the manic and unhinged vocals of Die Kreuzen and Rorschach. The band pounds out three sounds in under four minutes while the vocalist yells his head off about waiting for death and hating people who change what they are to what people want them to be. Real hardcore for real punks.
You can listen to it here:
Foreign Objects 7” and Tiny Ghosts 7” will be out this week too.
Second song of the new Neon Piss LP.
First song of the new Neon Piss LP. Second one will follow tomorrow.
