There's very few bands that work as hard to bring the music to the masses as Supersuckers. They're like a sleeper cell. Without warning, they'll come out of hiding in Anytown, U.S.A. and blow shit up. They are a band that everyone needs to see live at least once - and when you do, you'll want to see them every single time they come. Every show is an event.

And when a new Supersuckers album comes out? Well shit, that's pretty much the only playlist you'll need for the next few weeks. With their latest Get The Hell, Eddie Spagetti and company continue their tradition of meat and potatoes rock 'n roll, but even more impressive - they continue to make rock 'n roll fun.

Let me tell you something folks. Rock came very close to never being fun again with the death of Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy Ramone. Thanks to bands like Supersuckers, the fire still burns bright through tracks like "Fuck Up", "Gluttonous" and "Disaster Bastard". They hold the standard high for those that can't hold it up anymore.


Special note:
Folks, as much as we love the music we do, sometimes you need to show it in more ways than buying an album. Supersuckers frontman and ultimate badass could use your help to curb-stomp cancer's sorry ass. Click here to read the story and to make a donation.

Travoltas

Back To The City
White Russian Records (2021)

Somehow it seems to me that Travoltas released Until We Hit The Shore only last year or perhaps the year before. But nooooo, it’s been four years already. That record is still on heavy rotation here, especially when the weather is sunny and the temperature is high (but not too hot). So I was so happy to hear a new EP by … Read more

Bootlicker

Self-Titled
Neon Waste, Static Shock Records (2021)

Rough and tough d-beat, oi-influenced punk with a boot on the cover. If you follow the scene you probably already have a sense of what Bootlicker sounds like based on that alone. Released on Neon Waste (USA/Canada) and Static Shock (UK), this is Discharge-influenced punk that pulls no punches. It’s angry, shouty, and aggressive as all get-out with memorable lyrics … Read more

Stella Research Committee

A Proposed Method for Determining Sanding Fitness
Independent (2021)

Labels like Amphetamine Reptile and Skin Graft Records and the “now wave” and noise rock avalanche they launched has served as an immense source of inspiration for a myriad of bands. Listening to Stella Research Committee’s fifth LP, they do not only seem to be overly familiar with the output of the aforementioned label rosters, but have channelled those influences … Read more
