Senior Discount – And That’s Goodbye (Deluxe)


I’m rocking out to the brand new deluxe edition of the previously released, plain and boring old edition, of an EP from Providence-based punk band Senior Discount entitled, And That’s Goodbye. Did you hear me? I SAID DELUXE! It’s got guts, it’s got cuts. It’s got some sonofbitchin comedy, in the form of hillbilly renditions of some of the band’s previous material.

Well it’s been a year or two since I’ve heard from these Providence punkers, but they are back with some fine new block rockin’ beats. In addition to the aforementioned beats, there are a lot of covers, performed in a manner in which can only be described as cover tunes of Senior Discount songs, as performed by Senior Discount.

I know that maybe sounds kind of weird, but there is also a cover of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, which can best be described as a cover of a Cyndi Lauper song as performed by Senior Discount. So, ya know, take it for what it’s worth.

Seriously though, the band puts in the effort. The tracks are punchy and punky, but with a depth and sincerity that is often lacking in a lot of crap you are gonna hear on shitrock radio. There are also a lot of acoustic tracks and instrumental breaks, pointing to the fact that these folks really can play. That isn’t to say that the band takes themselves too seriously. They just sometimes sound serious.

Personal favorites: Ben Broke Edge, a simple solo acoustic ditty, and Don’t Hate Me (TBNSB), a melodic punk rock track reminding me a bit of LTJ and/or NOFX.

At any rate, there’s a DELUXE version of “And That’s Goodbye” available, and that’s as DELUXE is the whole goddamn world gets! Go find a copy, ideally at a live show in your neck of the woods. … if that doesn’t work for ya, check ‘em out here: www.seniordiscountmusic.com

Cheers!

Band Bio: (which includes things that I wrote)

Senior Discount has played over 200 shows in RI, MA, CT, NH, NJ, NY, PA, and VT, and won the Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll for Best Punk Band two years in a row.

We’ve shared the stage with such acts as Anti-Flag, Gym Class Heroes, Girl Talk, Boys Like Girls, The Bravery, Guttermouth, Less Than Jake, The Ataris, Leftover Crack, A Wilhelm Scream, the Street Dogs, Zox, Big D and the Kids Table, Darkbuster, The Swingin Utters, Rehab, Mickey Avalon, Streetlight Manifesto, the Bloodshot Hooligans,The Loved Ones, MC Lars, Suburban Legends, Patent Pending, The Toasters, The Pilfers, and many many more.

Our first album “There Were Four Who Tried…“, has gotten positive reviews from all over the US (and internationally), including very positive reviews from Maximum Rock N Roll(CA), which boasted, “These guys can rock and scream….a strong full-length,” and the revered AbsolutePunk.net, which stated “The band really acts out their emotions….Every track from the album is an anthem to punk rock’s principles.” Our second release received the comment “These guys slay on record and live!” from mash-up DJ sensation Girl Talk.

We also focus heavily on film production, as we’ve used short films to promote for our shows and releases. Our one full-length film (“VBW Attack: The Senior Discount Movie“) was reviewed by The Noise (Boston) which reported “…let’s just say that this DVD is gold and that the band, and those with them, have some mighty winds at their sails.” The national television network G4 has bought and aired footage from the film. The band has totalled around 40,000 views on their streaming video sites.

Upon the release of our newest package, the CD/DVD “This is Not the End,” Upstarter (CA) said “The band has developed an obvious maturity….serious and sincere” while The Noise (Boston) called the album “smart, loco, epic punk…a pleasant assemblage of earnest songrcraft.”  In the past year, the band played some dates of theSka Goes Solo tour with the singers of Less Than Jake and Catch 22, while Senior Discount lead singer Chuck Staton played solo shows with Chuck Ragan (The Revival Tour/Hot Water Music), Dave Hause (The Loved Ones), and Kris Roe (The Ataris). We were recently nominated for Best Pop Punk Band in Motif Magazine.

Pink Muscles – The Signal


Angular is the new curve, at least a curve on the regular old garage punk you’ve been jamming up your ear-orifices lately. To alter that in a direction that maybe you’ll enjoy, I offer, Pink Muscles new LP “The Signal.” 14 tracks of absolutely mental psych-garage-punk-noise. It is angular as fuck!

The band hails from Seattle, and that is about all I know of them, aside from the album that I’m listening to right now. Best I can tell you is that I’m getting a vibe. I don’t know what the vibe means or represents. I mean it might be a drug flashback, or maybe it’s a flash forward to drugs I may be required to do in the future. It really is hard to tell.

The music is swirling and shouty, punctuated with computer-like, precision supersonics. It’s as though a less distorted, or perhaps differently distorted Al Jourgensen was fronting for an alternate history of Voivoid ala Dimension Hatröss, throw in some Prong outtakes of Steady Decline for good measure. Does that give you a feel for what’s going on here? Yeah, probably not. I think you’re just gonna have to give ‘em a listen.

The tunes are brief, but in the time allotted, they go in a myriad of directions, sometimes simultaneously. Frenetic like Mr. Bungle, but not so circusy, more robotic. However, the scattered, yet robotic nature of the music belies its underlying humanity, humanity that is in end stage. It feels like a world in breakdown mode and from these crumbling ruins a new world will rise, Phoenix-like, with more printed circuits and transistors the next time around.

At the end of the day, if you like your music odd, and noisy, and something that will still probably scare the crap out of your parents, teachers, friends, and neighbors, then by all means, give The Signal, by Pink Muscles a whirl.

Getting To Know Spylights


Where are you from and when did you get started?

I am from a city called Metairie, Louisiana. It’s a small city outside of New Orleans. The idea of doing a solo project really came to fruition when my full time touring band parted ways back in late 2014. I started writing and recording music full time in 2015 and haven’t looked back since.

Who are you and who does what in the band?

I am the songwriter and vocalist for Spylights, and I performed and recorded all the instruments for the record. As of now I have a few talented players on board for live shows. One of them is actually the bass player in my other band called Like Water.

How would you best describe the sound?

I would say there are plenty of different feels involved in the sound,and plenty that have not even surfaced yet. Since 2015, I have written and recorded over 30 songs with many different kinds of feels and mixtures of genres within them. I try to touch on different styles cohesively of singer songwriter, jazz, alternative rock, prog, metal, electronica, and some fusion. I guess it’s mainly going to be considered a rock band when it all boils down.

Dream rock moment (real or not)?

I feel like I have been lucky enough to have some real dream rock moments in my career asa musician so far. Through the bands I have been a part of I’ve toured with Fishbone, shared stages with Haken, Thank You Scientist, The Expendables, Slightly Stoopid, The Damned Things, Dick Dale, H.R. Of Bad Brains, Alkaline Trio, and many more. I am just mega grateful that I had the opportunity to meet, get to know, and become friends with some of those guys through my craft!

Still got day jobs?

Of course that’s pretty much a given nowadays unless you are a massive entity of a band or somehow you don’t have rent or bills to pay. I am a producer, studio engineer, and from time to time I work as an audio video technician for extra money!

Any regrets?

No major regrets really, we all just play the hand we are dealt in life and learn from those mistakes we make along the way. The only regret I may have at all as a musician is wasting too much time on different bands over the years that only had a small percentage of dedicated passionate members in it for the long haul. Everybody wants to be in a band, brag about it to girls or their friends, until they learn what they truly signed up for and the sacrifice it entails. It is a long hard road that many aren’t either cut out for or willing to put the work into to get down.

Verthebral – Regeneration


When I think of blistering Death Metal, naturally my thoughts turn, geographically, to the sleepy plains of South America. Of course I’m talking about Paraguay. It’s what is basically the Kansas of South America. Were else do you expect to find brutal, crushing, tormenting metal? As I’m sure you already know, I’m referring to Verthebral and their forthcoming release “Regeneration” on Satananth Records. 10 tracks of musical onslaught so intense that it’ll make your forgot about every other death metal band from Paraguay you’ve ever heard.

I’ve mentioned it in the past, but I think it bears repeating. Modern technology and the rapid sharing of information, when put to good use can be a powerful force for change. It can bring the underground to the surface and bring an audience to artists that may have previously gone unheard. Twenty years ago, I can nearly guarantee I never would have heard of music coming out of Paraguay. I’m very thankful that I have.

Seriously though, Regeneration is a powerful, driving album with all the metal bits in all the right places. It soars, it seethes, it chugs, and it growls just when you need it too. The riffs are breakneck, and the solos cut through your bones with the metal sound of the late 80s.

This is where the death/doom/dark metal world needs to be. Modern tunes that pay respect to the roots.

Fantastic stuff. Check it out.

RANCID’S NEW ALBUM ‘TROUBLE MAKER’ OUT NOW

Rancid’s ninth studio album Trouble Maker is now in stores. Trouble Maker was produced by Rancid’s longtime producer and founder of Epitaph Records, Brett Gurewitz. Watch previously released videos of the band performing singles “Telegraph Avenue” and “Ghost of a Chance” or head over to Rancid’s YouTube channel for more performance videos from every song on the album!

Listen to Trouble Maker now:

http://open.spotify.com/album/0IJ8KmhJausnsCjUvgM5vY

Emerging from the blue-collar swamps of Berkeley, California, Rancid has now been a living, breathing punk rock band for over a quarter century. Back in 1991, after the demise of their much beloved first band, Operation Ivy, founding members Tim Armstrong (vocals, guitar) and Matt Freeman (bass, vocals) decided to do the impossible — start an even better band. Thus, Rancid. Signing with Epitaph Records, the band released their first album Rancid in 1993. Shortly thereafter, Lars Frederiksen (vocals, guitar) joined the band, because… well, are you going to tell him he can’t? The result, in 1994, was Let’s Go.

In 1995, Rancid released the classic platinum selling …And Out Come The Wolves. You still remember when you first heard it. They followed with the even more ambitious Life Won’t Wait in 1998, and in 2000, Rancid released another album entitled Rancid, just to see if anyone was paying attention. After Indestructible in 2003, Branden Steineckert (drums) joined to solidify Rancid’s current line-up. They subsequently released the albums Let The Dominos Fall (2009) and Honor Is All We Know (2014).

Through it all, Rancid has remained fiercely independent, never losing their loyalty to community or each other. Their music confronts political and social issues, while balancing personal tales of love, loss, and heartbreak with attitude. Rancid gives their listeners a community where everyone can belong. By carrying on the traditions and spirit of the original punk rock bands that came before, Rancid has become a legend an inspiration to punk bands that have come after.

Rancid and Dropkick Murphys will be co-headlining From Boston To Berkeley Tour, kicking off July 27 in Bangor, ME and wrapping August 26 in Southern California. Each night will culminate with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys on stage together for a joint encore.

Getting To Know Demi The Daredevil!


Where are you from and when did you get started?

We are from El Paso, Texas and we started jamming ten years ago in high school. But, after some tragic events, we didn’t start taking this seriously until 2015.

Who are you and who does what in the band?

Im Jeff Azar, I sing and play the keys. Marc plays the guitar. Matt and Gabriel play the drums. We play with backtracks, with a few programmed instruments in them.

How would you best describe the sound?

Queen meets Chicago meets Genesis if you’re an oldie. A newie, you could say twenty one pilots meets Panic! at the Disco meets My Chemical Romance. We have punk roots but this music has a slightly more relaxed feel, and is a bit more composed. Art Pop Dark theater music with emo punk roots.

Dream rock moment (real or not)?

Dream rock moment…. a fantasy would be to open for Puddle of Mud or Mudvayne or Muddy Waters if he were still around. Marc’s in a band called Slop Musket which is would be cool. Cradle of Filth maybe. I’m on a dirty word tangent. Maybe I should rethink my dreams and go to the light. Yani, or Switchfoot or Enya maybe.

Still got day jobs?

Yes, yes still got a day job. I guess that’s the defining factor between hobby musician and a professional musician isn’t it. And right now we’re in the trenches. And until I quit my day job, no one around me will be 100% convinced of this project being a career for me.

Any regrets?

Yes. Do I ever. I know they say regrets are useless. And they are if you already understand the mistake. But it’s still hard not to think about them. For me it’s being caught up in negative relationships for so long. Wrong crowds. Wasted a lot of time trying to get on the same page as people who aren’t on the same path as me.

Getting To Know Tarah Who?


Where are you from and when did you get started?

Tarah G. Carpenter (Vocals, Guitar)
Matthew Peltcher (Bass)

MP: I was born in Los Angeles California. I’ve been playing music since I was very young. We had a music teacher bring different instruments every week to class and eventually I got to play trumpet in the school band. In high school, I was hanging out with a big group of friends at lunch and they were like “Hey! We should all form a band! That would be so cool!” We got so excited, we started shouting out which instruments we were going to play. In the end, the only two that actually formed a band from that group was my best friend and myself.

TGC: I am from Paris, France. I started playing music when i was 14. I wanted to learn the drums but no one really supported for this instrument so I started teaching myself. I moved to Kentucky when i was 15 and i couldn’t play the drums ( I played percussion in Murray High School Band though..) so i taught myself the guitar. When I returned to France, to finish my baccalauréat I joined two bands. One, in which i played the drums and another one in which I was playing the bass. Secretly, I wrote songs on the guitar. I moved to LA when I turned 21, I didn’t have a band but I wanted to play. I found an ad on craigslist: ” looking for talented singer songwriters to play in a warehouse”. I can still picture it. I actually wish I could find such an event for us today! Anyway, I went? It was my first performance as a singer-guitar player. I had a lot of positive feedback so I kept on doing it. 11 years later.. I am still doing it!

Who are you and who does what in the band?

MP: I’m the bass player and backing vocals. Tarah writes the music and the rest of us contribute.

TGC: I am Tarah, founder of Tarah Who?. I write the songs (music and lyrics).

How would you best describe the sound?

MP: Our sound can have some grunge, punk, rock or even metal sounds depending on the song. We aren’t looking for any particular sound. We just write what sounds good to us. You can definitely expect a very loud performance at a Tarah Who? Show.

TGC: This is very well described! Not much to add here.. We’re very simple in sound. Plug in and play. we’re loud, energetic, we like to scream and make you scream! We love to entertain!
I grew up listening to 90 ‘s rock music, and i was a big Alanis fan. So I am pretty sure there is some Alanis in my writing (singer-songwriter) then I discovered the Foo fighters and I was a huge fan! And then, I discovered the Distillers. And outside of having a big crush on Brody, I thought they sounded amazing;) wait, does that make sense?

So Tarah Who? sounds like Alanis, kept Taylor on the drums but switched her guitar player with Brody and Tony, meets Courtney Love just because she’s hanging out! (I may have had a Moscow Mule or two…)

Dream rock moment (real or not)?

MP: Touring Europe. Let’s make that dream a reality. 😉

TGC: Easy peasy Matt! We’ll make it happen, don’t you worry:) I am not sure that I understand the question… Have I had a dream Rock moment? what is a dream rock moment?!!Wait I am confused..

Well.. let me tell you a little story instead.. once upon a time, I go to my rehearsal space in North Hollywood with my dog, Boogie who takes a dump. I pick it up, because i am a good citizen.. (Or I think I am..) I look up and someone says Hi! and it is Jack Black. The End.

Still got day jobs?

MP: Yes. Next question?

TGC: Got to do what you gotta do!

Any regrets?

MP: No. What purpose do regrets have besides making you feel like shit? Regrets are a big waste of time and the sooner you realize it the better. I’m done with my PSA now.

TGC: Sometimes… missed opportunities. When i don’t dare to ACT when i get THE chance. I hesitate for too long and then the moment is gone. Then i am pretty upset at myself for not daring.. I am getting better…I think… but yeah.. That’s the kind of regret I have.

Brash Bullets – Radio Therapy

If you like your punk served up old school British style, but want something new to be mad chuffed about, then here’s your ticket, kiddies.

“Radio Therapy” is the debut EP by South UK, “‘77 style” punkers, Brash Bullets. While you only get six tracks, what you get is chock full of punk tunes tempered by the influence of bands like, Crass, Business, Sham 69, Stiff Little Fingers, etc. I ain’t gonna lie to ya, if you’re not into the “77” sound you’re probably going to pan it as derivative. However, if you ARE into that, I think this will be right up your alley.

The tracks are mostly mid to up tempo and clock in around the two minute mark on average. This is great for short attention span folks like myself. Oddly the epic length track, Girl Next Door, registering in at a mind bending 2:34 is my personal fav on the EP.

As far as the “sound” coming from my speakers, the recording seems efficient, and there’s a rather garage/basement vibe. Not that the tracks aren’t clean, so much as they are minimalist. It seems that overdubs are used sparingly if at all and I’d suspect that it was recorded in as few tracks, with as few takes as possible. I like the result, it’s sharp, yet raw. I think overproduction would diminish that feel.

At any rate, a solid dose of new punk from some old soul upstarts in the South of the UK, check ‘em out.

Bio:
Brash Bullets started gigging in mid 2015 flying the punk flag in the south of the UK. Taking inspiration from many of the ’77 punk bands and adding a pinch of modern life, Brash Bullets’ aim is to leave you questioning the existence of glossy la-dee-dah talent shows & mainstream pop. Ripping through their set lists at rapid pace, they have found themselves sharing the stage of punk royalty such as Richie Ramone, Anti-Nowhere League, GBH, Angelic Upstarts and Peter & The Test Tube Babies to name a few. Their debut ep ‘Radio Therapy’ is available now!

Spring Heeled Jack – New Release

I’m pleased to report that one of my long time favorite ska bands is back at it with new music. Sound Salvation, the first new material in nearly 20 years will be premiered at the “CINCO DE JACKO RECORD RELEASE FIESTA LOCO !!” … I seriously wish I could attend.

At Both Ends – Wheel’s Out The Window

At Both Ends is a pop-punk ska band reminiscent of the big 90’s 3rd wave era. They come from Sacramento and “Wheel’s Out the Window”, released under Morning Wood Records! Is their second album.

Alright, let’s get into it. One word I would use to describe this album is dynamic, and my opinion changed several times as the album progressed. As a predominately hardcore and ska-core fan, I was pleasantly surprised by some elements in this work. From the great rumbling bass riff to a thrash-like breakdown, I found many things to enjoy. Don’t let me paint this as a heavy ska-punk album though. The majority of the riffs are built around a poppy electric (emphasis on electric) guitar that most of the time got on my nerves, as did the singing which I will get into soon.

I do have to say I am a big fan of the horns on this album. Although they aren’t in every song I found them fantastic and well linked with the guitar, but were also original and crisp similar to that of Streetlight Manifesto’s many hits. Overall I am a fan of the music except for the voice. The lyrics and singer definitely put a damper on my appreciation of the piece. Though the songs have themes of unconformity (“Your Way”) and freedom (“Freedom”), the lead singer Gene sounds similar to the tone you think of when someone says pop-punk and not in a good way. Not to mention cheesy lyrics and rhymes, I found the album at its best when there wasn’t any singing at all. However, if Reel Big Fish, Green Day, and Less Than Jake are your jams, I think you will enjoy this album. Personally if Gene could pull off a kind of Jason Navarro of The Suicide Machines this album would be twice as good.

Overall I would recommend the album due to an overall appreciation for creating something fresh in the ska scene that announces similar values to that of the masters. Although I critiqued the guitar heavily, it did have its moments as well as the rest of the instruments. About 2/3 of the songs I can see myself listening to again, leaving about 5 or so songs that were in my opinion mediocre due to a pop sound and vocals.
