Screeching Weasel
Screeching Weasel
For those that aren’t familiar with them (frankly, you should be ashamed of your self), Screeching Weasel have been a stalwart of the pop-punk scene for 25 years. Back in ’86 they took up the Ramones’ torch and have since created a bonfire. With legions of dedicated fans and a whole slew of acclaimed releases under their belt Screeching Weasel have firmly entrenched themselves as living legends in the punk rock world. Not satisfied to rest on their laurels, the band recently reformed and completed their first new material in 11 years, First World Manifesto. Comprised of 14 tracks, First World Manifesto has all the hallmarks of an instant Weasel classic. From the short fast punk rock standards bearing Ben’s trademark ire (this time directed at message board tyrants, scenesters, and blind followers) to the traditional mid-tempo girl oriented songs, it’s all in there. Musically, First World Manifesto delivers on expectations with their emblematic guitar driven sound ringing throughout, due in no small part to the return of famed guitarist Dan Vapid. Additionally, they enlisted Mike Kennerty (All-American Rejects) to take the reins as producer, and threw in some backing vocals by Dr. Frank (Mr. T Experience) and Joe Queer (The Queers). First World Manifesto is the masterpiece that Weasel fans have been dreaming about for the past decade of silence.
Night Birds
Night Birds
Night Birds is comprised of four thoroughly modern morons from the New Jersey shore and Brooklyn, NY. After one listen it will only seem right that these guys spawn from the same state that brought you such class acts as the Misfits and Adrenalin OD. This high-octane surf-inspired punk rock band formed in the spring of 2009 following the demise of bassist Joe Keller's band, The Ergs! While they take cues from the greats of 1980's hardcore/punk bands like the Circle Jerks, Zero Boys, and Adolescents, they still manage to keep it new and fresh and consistently take it to that next level. To date, the band has released three 7" EPs as well as their 2011 debut album, The Other Side of Darkness on Grave Mistake Records (with a new 7" and LP just around the corner!), as well as playing nearly 200 shows all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. If you like Seinfeld, pizza, horror movies, or any combination of the three, Night Birds may be your new favorite band.
