The Sleaze - Weird Truck

Take a deep breath, have a seat and try to contain yourself, because yes, it's true, The Sleaze have come out with a new record! I was floored when I stumbled upon this yesterday, and the news only got better when I did some research and found out that they plan to have another out by the end of summer. Yep, that's right for those keeping score: In 2(?)+ years as a functioning band = 1 record. In the year er so since they've called it a day = 3 records (2pac joke). Probably not their best, but it's hard to judge against such insta classix as Smokin' Fuckin' Cigs and PCP. Oh baby.

Ropes - Demo II

Third yield from the reincarnation of sumptuous REPOS, of course as the ROPES. 5 new blazers on this second demo distributed on their recent midwest excursion. and YAOWWWWWWWWW these are the most killer Ropes tracks yet. The vocal output on this one is more atrocious than ever! And holy shit the Dead Boys cover is insane!! The tape is housed by a rich zine with lyrics and artworks. !!!

A Shameless Plug

Hey, I'm announcing/plugging my new blog of only live recordings called, We Ain't Gonna Stop (Fuck You). So far I only got posts of Condominium, Manipulation, Culo, and Formaldehyde Junkies. I'm going to try to space out the posts to once a week, so hopefully it'll be a steady stream with no big gaps between posts. It's probably not terribly exciting to most, but hopefully a few people will get a kick out of it.

HPP - HPP 7"

Ow oWE. Hipster Piss Party is definitely my favorite band curated by the Perennial Famzz, and a definite 2k11 top-dog out on the playground as well. This 7" is all that I want in a punk record. I love HPP's re-occurring lyric of "RIP IT UP", yeah... 6 new track follow up to the LP released last summer. HPP's finest recordings yet. Hilarious Clorox Girls riff (intentional or not). HPP is spilling their slime all over yr town this June. Go see them. Look for the interview in FA fanzine #2 out SOON. BUY IT HERE (NOW).

Ralph - S/T 7"

Young illiterate Atlanta punks toss out a fucking HIT with their debut 7" on Scavenger of Death. Ripping and youthful cuts holding (sped up) Koro and groovy Adolescents stroking close to the giblets. "Infectious" is the killer on this record, the gang vox are WYLD. For fans of the first Gov Warning 7" and 80s hoohaw. Great turd of wax for 2011. "For A Good Time, Call Philip". Buy it here.

Career Suicide - Cherry Beach 7"

It's about time Career Suicide returned to the pit. It's been almost three years since 'Cherry Beach Mk. I' was released, honestly, I kind of forgot they were still together, though I did end up seeing them in St. Louis yesteryear which was BOMB. Obviously, this is their new record with the two original tracks from the Cherry Beach '2008 Tour' 7", plus two new cuts, which are TOTAL BANGERS. This time they've recorded in a studio adding maximum smack and zest. Some might say Career Suicide are 'past their prime', but these tracks might be the catchiest yet of the triumphant CS catalog. Out on Dirtnap Records, comes with a rad poster. I TOOK THE FERRY.
