Bands

  • Adolescents ThumbnailAdolescents
    What can I tell you about the Adolescents that you don't already know (or at least should know)? The band is a straight up staple of SoCal punk in all its varieties and, for many, the definitive band of its era.

  • Anti-Flag - ThumbnailAnti-Flag
    Anti-Flag is a political punk rock band. That's the easiest way to describe them. The politics take the focal point of the band's persona. And that's just the way they like it.

  • Art Brut - ThumbnailArt Brut
    Art Brut started out a part of the New Cross DIY scene and without much change in their sound (at least of the negative variety) the band has managed to become a household name.

  • Anti-Flag - ThumbnailBlack Lips
    If you haven't heard the Black Lips yet, you will. The band was just signed to the much-hyped Vice Records, and has effectively become the only band on Vice that doesn't suck. Well, the only band besides Fucked Up.

  • Bouncing Souls - ThumbnailBouncing Souls
    You should be familiar with the Bouncing Souls by now. On the (overcrowded) East Coast the band has become an institution.

  • Buzzcocks - ThumbnailBuzzcocks
    You should already be familiar with the Buzzcocks by now. Part of the Holy Trinity of UK Punk, the band has been putting out top-notch records for the past 30 years. That's a long time.

  • Curl Up and Die - ThumbnailCurl Up and Die
    Unfortunately, until recently the slogan "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" had long applied to the city's music scene. Sure, they had Slaughter. But is that really something to boast about? Enter Curl Up and Die.

  • Eagles of Death Metal - ThumbnailEagles of Death Metal
    Eagles of Death Metal are kind of an anomaly in mainstream music in that 99.9% of the music that makes it to larger audience is just awful.

  • Film School - ThumbnailFilm School
    Film School plays pop music. And they do it well. However, while thier tagline is "pop," the intent behind it comes from some place deeper.

  • Gorilla Angreb - ThumbnailGorilla Angreb
    The band hails from Denmark and is a mix-match of current and ex members of tons of rad Danish bands. They've been getting a lot of attention in the underground rags here in the US for quite some time, but the records were kind of hard to track down.

  • Guitar Wolf - ThumbnailGuitar Wolf
    Japanese rock 'n' roll maniacs Guitar Wolf came thru Philly recently. After destroying the Northstar Bar the night before with their own brand of the Kamakaze sneak attack, the boys hit up the Sailor Jerry store for some new gear and a hangout on our couch.

  • Hellshock - ThumbnailHellshock
    Hellshock is metal. A large part of their sound is steeped heavily in mid to late '80s UK crust but they add in some Scandinavian raw-punk flavor to brighten things up a bit.

  • Imperial Leather - ThumbnailImperial Leather
    Punk rock music is being used to market everything from Nikes to Nissans. It's a constant struggle to find anything new that hasn't been done to death or stripped of its integrity and spirit. Enter: Imperial Leather.

  • Jay Reatard - ThumbnailJay Reatard
    When I heard Jay was planning on releasing a solo LP I immediately jumped on the opportunity to have a song from said record for the then-upcoming SJ comp CD. This was without even hearing it! Larry at In The Red records sent me a CDR of the Blood Visions record and upon listening to it I knew we had struck gold.

  • Mikabomb - Thumbnail Mikabomb
    Mikabomb was put here to smash guitars, and stereotypes. They fit in well with the current wave of Japanese rock 'n' roll bands, but they're based in London.

  • Nashville Pussy - ThumbnailNashville Pussy
    It's been said that the devil has all the best tunes, but that's not the case anymore, since a lil' ol' band from Georgia-known to friends and followers as Nashville Pussy-found a way to pick the lock on that storehouse of demonic sonics and make off with some of its most incendiary contents.

  • Riverboat Gamblers - ThumbnailRiverboat Gamblers

  • Street Dogs - ThumbnailStreet Dogs
    They grab some gear, hook us up with copies of the new CD and head off to the venue. Excited, I put Back to World on and I'm immediately treated to some grade A rock 'n' roll.

  • The Briefs - ThumbnailThe Briefs
    The music combines high energy rock 'n' roll with tuneful, pop hooks that drill their way into your head and stay there.

  • The Dickies - ThumbnailThe Dickies
    What's really weird is that they're the first LA punk band to be picked up by a major label (back in the '70s!) and haven't ever really broken up.

  • The Donnas - ThumbnailThe Donnas
    The Donnas have been around the proverbial "punk rock block." They've traveled every corner of the globe bringing with them a fun live show and a testament that guys aren't the only ones allowed to brandish a Gibson.

  • The Posies - ThumbnailThe Posies
    Formed by Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer in 1987, the band gained a lot of recognition for their sugary, sweet power-pop tunes in the early '90s.

  • Theo and the Skyscrapers - ThumbnailTheo and the Skyscrapers
    The music has been described as "Blondie's tour bus smashing into Slayer on Gary Numan's driveway." That's pretty right on.

  • Vulcans - ThumbnailVulcans
    Vulcans are a very new band from Las Vegas with only a demo out at the moment. We don't normally feature bands without an official release, but we also don't usually listen to a band's demo over and over.

    World/Inferno are one of the few bands around today that have been able to carve out their own niche in a sea of endless clones.

  • ZEKE - ThumbnailZEKE
    Punishing. That's easily the best way to descirbe Zeke's sound. If you're a stickler for detail you could insert a standard rock cliche. Like…loud, fast rock 'n' roll.
