Benny The Jet Rodriguez-Home.Run. LP!!

05 Aug

Posted by: Todd C

San Pedro locals Lauren Freeman & Joey Centofani started BTJR as a two piece. They caught my ear,using no professionalism whatsoever, at our local dive, Harold’s, one night with some crazy catchy songs. They asked me to record a song for the WUB tape comp and that snowballed into an album’s worth, recorded here at Clown Sound. Shit started rollin’ and yours truly tracked some keyboards and was asked to play live with em. The album turned out awesome. Here it is!

Stream the full album here!

Track Listing:
Home. Alley Cat. Cement Overcoat. Summer Hatin’ (Happened So fast). Stand Around.
Don’t Call A Girl Tony Robbins. Wine Stained Teeth. Heart Attack. Aloha Mr Hand. Run.

I hate to be “that guy” but this makes most current hipster hardcore sound like Kenny G after spilling his viagra. Gonna do a limited run of 300 copies one day but til then…download

Toys That Kill cancel/postpone(!) Europe tour

10 Apr

Posted by: Todd C

Some pretty lame news here. We had to cancel our upcoming Toys That Kill Europe tour due to a detached retina in my right eye. When the doctor diagnosed me last week she rushed me into the retina specialist for emergency surgery that same day. I told them I was going to Europe next wednesday and they both replied with “No your not! If you get on a plane you will lose your eye!”. It felt like a knife through my skull. I feel some horrible emptiness inside when canceling shows but this takes the cake. It’s gonna be tough to imagine where we should be every givin night for the next month. The great shows we are missing and the fun times that should be having. I’ll have my right eye to keep me company at least. It’s so hard to get all of us,due to work schedules, to go to Europe and we were seconds away. Bad timing to say the least. They said I was lucky to not be blind in that eye already so there is some positives here but still…shit! Very sincere apologies to every promoter who booked a show and especially Benny & Fanski/Klownhouse for booking the tour and the Rockstar Records/Aachen crew for their help overseas. We will try to make it up asap!” -Todd C.

Update:April 2014 will is the planned makeup time.
