Kevin K “and The CBGB Years”

The CBGB was KEVIN K's own rock'n'roll highschool, a classroom in which students would carefully study the RAMONES, the DEAD BOYS and the NEW YORK DOLLS.

Godfathers “A Big Bad Beautiful Noise”

(-maximum bottle review by General Labor) ...Aw, man, it's apparently, all been forgotten and photo-shopped, whitewashed and revised, now, to fit-in to various updated narratives of convenience, but in the actual push and struggle eighties of my wild, wild youth, our gang was an unlikely alliance of thrash metal dudes in army camo and Slayer...

The Bloodtypes “Johnny” 7″

Red and white cold war/communist designs, vintage keyboards, tight playing and poppy female vocals. Everything here could make you think that this band appeared in this world between 1976 and 1982, but they actually got together in 2010 and already have an album ("Just Your Type") out. On this new 4 song 7", their love... Continue Reading →
