It’s been over a decade since New York’s Morning Glory released their debut This Is No Time To Sleep and they have remained pretty quiet as far as new music goes, having only two other releases. Now Morning Glory returns with the August 28th, 2012 release of their full length Poets Were My Heroes and there are definitely some solid songs on here. Formed from the ashes of Choking Victim, there have always been traces of the crack rock steady sound that associated acts such […]
This past Friday, I headed out to see one of my all time favorite pop-punk bands around, Teenage Bottlerocket. It’s a rare occasion for me to be able to see them (in the years I’ve been listening to them this was only going to be my 4th time… due to the fact they are from Wyoming and rarely make it out to the east coast), and I’ve been stoked for months about this Barbary show. Add the fact that I love their latest release Freak […]
Quick, when you think of early punk rock, what are the first 3 bands that come to your mind? If you’re like most people, The Ramones, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols all came to mind immediately… and rightfully so as they all are great fucking bands. Unfortunately, sort of like the Buzzcocks, one of the greatest punk bands often gets left out. England’s Cock Sparrer is easily one of the most influential and underrated bands of their time, and I have been listening to […]
In the spirit of the EP itself, I’m going to make this quick and to the point. How do you feel about blast beat hardcore such as early Ceremony or Punch (who’s latest EP I’ve been spinning non-stop by the way… so fucking good). If you dig it, you’ll fucking love DC Coke Bust’s 6 song Fuck Bar Culture. Released in 2007 and clocking in around 4 minutes, the longest song on here is a quick 1 minute kick to the face just to give […]
It’s been a little while since my last post here, and that is because I was escaping the east coast for a bit and checking out that lovely little chain of islands known as Hawaii. Beautiful place, I tried scuba diving for the first time… aaaand got kicked out of class. Surfing was also a bit of a bust (I was fine at it, I just found it kind of boring… Think I’m just beach bum, I’ll stick with skating and snowboarding and my other […]
Friday after a day at the pool with some friends and celebrating the opening of new ice cream places (what’s up Little Baby Ice cream) I rushed over to the Barbary to catch brutal as fuck San Francisco hardcore act Punch. I didn’t think I was going to make it, but when I asked the doorman (Andy from PIB) he said “they literally just went on 5 minutes ago… so probably 3 songs in” perfect. The last time I saw these guys (and gal), my […]
