Leftover Crack/Citizen Fish Deadline split CD pre-order! Free patch with order!

You can now pre-order the new fifteen song split cd, Deadline_, from NYC’s ska/punk/crust band, Leftover Crack, and the UK’s punk/ska veterans, Citizen Fish. Each band contributes a few originals along with Leftover Crack covering a Subhumans and Citizen Fish song and Citizen Fish covering a Choking Victim and Leftover Crack song. It features cameos from Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy’s) and M.D.C.’s Dave Dictor. This is the follow up release to 2006’s "_Baby Punchers / Meltdown": split 7”.

If you’ve ever wondered how this delightfully malodorous match-up came to be then check out this story that LOC’s singer, Sturgeon, wrote that involves their initial meeting, salmon, the Subhumans and B.B. King. If you order the CD from the Fat webstore you can get a free patch with purchase while supplies last. There are 6 different designs in varying quantities so get them while they are hot. (Note: you’ll get one patch, at random, with each CD ordered). The band also gave us some awesome full back patches that we are going to use for contest giveaways that we’ll let you know about soon. Sorry but we didn’t get any butt-flaps. The LP version of this release is available on Alternative Tentacles.


Smoke or Fire’s brand new release, This Sinking Ship, came out last week and their new video for the song “The Patty Hearst Syndrome” has already been added to Fuse TV. We are glad they re-filmed the video because the first version was PRETTY good but it needed a little something more. Also, I guess there has been a little bit of confusion with some of the retail stores about the release date (Feb. 20th) and people are having trouble finding the record but this seems to be cleared up now. Remember…you can always get the cds from your good old friends and you also get to read this diabolically witty/stupid shit.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Smoke or Fire pre-order!

Happy Valentine’s day, lovers! I assume you’ve already received your obligatory box of freezer-burnt, chalky-white chocolates and are ready for some sensual news from us. We love you so hard that we want to let you start pre-ordering the brand new Smoke or Fire release, This Sinking Ship_, that comes out next Tuesday, February 20th. Also, through our webstore, you can get an autographed copyautograph.jpg of the cd (while supplies last). Who needs slinky lingerie or a fuzzy red teddy bear when you can give the gift of melodic, gritty, hardcore influenced punk? Look, once you’ve touched the piece of candy and smashed it with your hand and found out the inside is orange cream or coconut, you CAN’T just put it back in the tray. That’s cheating.

Only Crime Virulence out today!!! Strung Out in the studio.

Our bowling soldiers limped back into the office after the big tournament this weekend and once again… we won the whole thing! By winning I mean we came in 31st. People don’t look so good when they get home from Vegas either. Just the most blasted bed-head you have ever seen looking like Skeletor with the flu. Nothing says vacation like $2 steaks and emphysema. At least the new Only Crime record, Virulence, comes out today! If you are too much of a bed-wetter to just trust us and buy the damn thing then you can stream the entire record here first.

Strung Out are hard at work on their new record Blackhawks Over Los Angeles which is slated for a June 12th release date. The band has posted a link to a studio video journal on their website so you can check out the progress of the record and hear a few small parts from some of the new songs!

Lastly, after you watch this guy continue to piss off the entire planet tonight with the State of the Union address, you should listen to Fat Mike guest DJing on Radio 1’s Punk Show on the BBC. He plays a ton of Fat bands and they talk about every subject from the music industry imploding to his primary songwriting influences to the song that made him sign the Swingin’ Utters, etc. Check it out!

Only Crime pre-order and new Smoke or Fire mp3

We’re FREEZING and I feel like an ice cube but we’re not too cold to start packing up your orders for the new Only Crime record Virulence that comes out next Tuesday, January 23rd. We’ve stepped away from the fire we started in a barrel, slid our fingerless gloves on and put the record up for pre-order in our webstore. It’s the second full length record from 5 veterans of the punk/hardcore scene featuring Russ from Good Riddance, Bill Stevenson from the Descendents/All/Black Flag, Aaron from Bane/Converge, Zach from Hagfish/Gwar and Doni from Hagfish. Heavy punk and hardcore that mixes melody and rhythmic experimentation with their signature dissonant sound. We have also posted a link to brand new ringtones, a second mp3 and a cool contest. Russ may think it’s nice to be frozen solid while playing hockey but the only thing we want to chase on ice is a drink.


Smoke or Fire’s brand new record, This Sinking Ship, comes out on February 20th and we have posted the first mp3 from the record called “The Patty Hearst Syndrome”. The band recently made a video for the song and you can get a sneak peak at some photos from the shoot. They are currently planning a US tour so we will keep you posted. Remember you can also hear another new song from Smoke or Fire (and a bunch of our other bands) on our X-Mas Bonus Player. The holidays may be over but the gifts keep-a-comin’!
