Squad 5-0 Secret New Album Vinyl Project

In a somewhat cryptic post, The Blamed shared a picture of a Squad 5-0 test pressing (Vinyl) from United of a new album. Is it a new album or is it a re-release? I’m going with new album! Who here is excited about a brand new Squad 5-0 release that maybe ties together all their music from the 90’s ska-punk stuff all the way through “Late News Breaking”?… Continued →

Song of the Day: Fluffy - Amboy Bound

Fluffy’s debut, Fluffy Luvs You, was a fun punk rock record, even if it was a little predictable. Featuring 3 chord thrash goodness, and nonsensical lyrics, it stood out in the Christian punk scene for its lack of preaching. So fans and critics alike were a little puzzled when the band dropped their sophomore effort, Go, Fluffy, Go!Continued →

Song of the Day: Altar Boys - 1000 Miles

Altar Boys are a long running (formed in 1982) (punk) band whose very existence is a huge force in how our Christian punk subgenre has come to be. Mike Stand & company have done a wide variety of genres including modern rock (see my Clash of Symbols review) & rockabilly. There is a plethora of AB’s songs that I could have done for this SOTD, but 1000 Miles is about how Jesus loves us & is patiently waiting for us to turn to Him no matter how far we feel or seem to have gotten from Him.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Nobody Special - Finger Pointer

I first heard Nobody Special in 1989. My local contemporary Christian music radio station (KOKF 91.1 FM out of Oklahoma City) played their new album in its entirety over the airwaves. You see, KOKF was not your average CCM station. Sure, they played some adult contemporary and “inspirational” stuff during the daytime, but as the late afternoon and evening hit, they would feature more contemporary styles including pop, rap, rock, etc.… Continued →

The Blamed Re-Recording Landmark Debut Record, "21"

Legendary masters of punk-thrash-metal – The Blamed, are going to re-record their landmark, classic album from 1994 called “21”. This debut was really great back when I first heard it and reminded me why I love/loved punk rock. It was like a garage-y, underground sounding album that evoked immediate love for the live experience and sweat drenched, basement worthy punk shows.… Continued →

Too Bad Eugene to Release "Non Grata" This Friday

Too Bad Eugene are officially back. After successfully funding their new album campaign they’ve already finished their first new single and music since 2002. The track is titled “Non Grata” and it’s an upbeat, total raging, melodic punk rock powerhouse of a song much like their past material on “At Any Rate” and “Moonlighting” but kicked up a notch and with incredible sound production.… Continued →
