OFF WITH THEIR HEADS “From The Bottom” LP Grey vinyl $8

In a world where everything is falling apart, it’s nice to know someone is worse off than yourself. Ha ha, okay, so I kid. But this guy Ryan must be driving himself crazy, what with all the dire hopelessness and impossibility wrapped up in his lyrics. One can only hope that this is his way of dealing with all the crap humanity sends his way. Or is he a magnet for misfortune? Combine this direct, desperate outlook with upbeat, forward- moving punk rock, and what do you have? A strangely uplifting, energetic rallying cry that – far from bogging down the listener- inspires one to get up off their ass and do something. When I need a pick me up, this is it. When I need to knuckle down & get ‘er done, this is it. For you, maybe you need to kick a bad habit: this may not be for you. Or maybe… it’s just what you need. (Oh yeah, and I’m pretty sure Ryan is actually crazy. At least, that’s what he told me.) –Var. From No Idea website

Excerpt from Rockstar Records:
Two wrongs make one right again! Splits are all the rage this summer! So, what happened? San Pedro, CA: In 2006 Mr. Todd Congelliere, founder and first chairman of Recess Records and mastermind of supercatchy teenage punk- rock machines FYP and TOYS THAT KILL found himself not working at full capacity. So he gathered round some friends and former band- mates for a new project. THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD TO CANDYLAND was born and Punk Rock pitchforked to the next level! Örebro, SWE: In 1995 the man with the most creative arm-tattoos, Sir Janne Elfsten, raises later globalplayer Hard-On Records, to have a fitting label for his retard rockband, for the one and only, for the horrible PRICKS!For over 10 years now the two singer‘s ways crossed on shows and compilations, in holidays and in mind until now the unescapable became terrific reality. on 10 inches of true entertainment!While THE PRICKS do the only thing they ever understood, namely playing superwicked 80‘s Westcoast trashpunk exceeding the limit at every point, THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD TO CANDYLAND created songs (by the way recorded by Brian „Hammy“ Hamilton of the unbelievable FLESHIES) that you can listen to on and on and you fall in love deeper with every sound! You have to dance, and dance hard. It is pure in the most basic definitions of that word – clear and true, absolute, utter, sheer, ceremonially, or ritually clean – They make you glad to be alive (as MaximumRock‘n‘Roll pictured it)… Pinhead Gunpowder 7″ The Bananas-New Animals LP Screeching Weasel-boogadaboogadaboogada LP will be available next week!
