BlueZubiki | Живой Уголок | Москва [30 Jan 2008|01:11pm]

Очередное выступление дебоширов от авангарда и фриков от инди сцены - группы BlueZubiki Inc. - состоится в рамках PJ Harvey party, которая пройдет 31 января в молодом и перспективном клубе «Живой уголок». Группа выступит с концертом-спектаклем, центром которого станет творчество виновницы торжества, а также ее непростые взаимоотношения с двумя другими дивами «странного» рока - Tori Amos и Bjork.

Название спектакля многообещающее - Hips. Lips. Tits. Как всегда, всем зрителям, пришедшим в боа, по окончанию будет вручен специальный приз от группы. Так же в этом уникальном концерте-аттракционе примут активное участие такие группы, как легендарные «Mrs.TankGrrrl», специально собравшихся для этого концерта после длительного перерыва, многообещающая группа «Lipstick Radio», состоящая из четырех очаровательных девушек, играющих в жанре к-черту-жанры core, и любимцы любой рок-вечеринки - группа «Динозавр на завтрак». Название говорит само за себя.

CONTEST: Swellers + Punknews + Burritos = Free stuff [14 Jun 2007|01:56am]

This week at Punknews.org we've launched a contest for The Swellers. You can check it out here, or below:

The Swellers recently released their debut LP, My Everest. To celebrate, they want to give you some free stuff. But there's a catch. You see, the boys have a little vice. For some bands, it's designer drugs, while others like to booze it up. For the Swellers...burritos. The bigger and sloppier, the better.

Here's the deal. The band will give three lucky winners a copy of My Everest, a Swellers t-shirt and sticker pack, and a t-shirt from Offset Clothing. How do you win one of these prize packages? Well, we'll help the band pick a winner for each of three categories relating to, you guessed it, burritos.

  • One winner for Tastiest burrito concept

  • One winner for Best burrito name

  • One winner for Most original burrito idea

  • To enter, send an email to TheSwellers@punknews.org.

    Emails MUST be in the following format, or they will be fed to my dog.

    • The subject of the email MUST contain which burrito prize you are going after (i.e. - "subject: Tastiest burrito"

    • Entries must be no longer than 50 words

    • Enter as often as you like, however, you can only win 1 prize pack

    • Rules: Only open to North America, persons under 13 years old must have parent's permission, winners chosen at the discretion of Punknews.org and the Swellers, prizes could be subject to change

If you like FAT WRECK stuff, check us out! [01 May 2007|02:08pm]

Hey everybody, my band THE SWELLERS posted 3 new songs and details on our upcoming album, MY EVEREST.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

NEW SONGS AT http://www.myspace.com/theswellers

Check out the new songs: "Bottles" "The Flood" and "This Is My Everest"!!!!


PREORDER MY EVEREST AT www.snrrecords.com NOW!

Five years after their start and two years after their Search and Rescue Records debut, The Swellers unveil their first full length effort. As a more diverse and introspective collective of songs, My Everest represents a natural evolution in their own unique sound with influences ranging from A Wilhelm Scream to Weezer. Discovering that there is more to punk rock than high speed tempos, My Everest seeks to explore all musical boundaries. This record is equally hopeful as it is pessimistic.

Only Crime "Virulence" release tomorrow [22 Jan 2007|12:26pm]

Tomorrow, January 23, 2007, Only Crime releases their 2nd album Virulence on none other than Fat Wreckchords. If you haven't heard of OC yet, I put the biography from the Fat site below.

Only Crime is: Russ Rankin on vocals (Good Riddance), Bill Stevenson on drums (Descendents, All, Black Flag), Aaron Dalbec on Guitar (Bane, Converge, Velocity Engine), Zach Blair on the other guitar (Hagfish, Gwar), and Donivan Blair (Hagfish, Armstrong) on bass. The band is a combination of 5 veterans of the punk/hardcore scene who have pooled their collective experience to create a truly refreshing musical statement. Fusing elements of heavy rock and roll with the furious energy of punk rock from the 1970’s & 80’s, Only Crime has also adopted the creative abandon pioneered by jazz’s seminal protagonists. The band’s sound is heavy without being the least bit “metal”, melodic without sounding “pop”, and experimental without treading into the arcane realm of “art” rock. While the members of Only Crime aren’t new, their music is like nothing you’ve heard before.
