Doom Town featured in The Same New.

“Assim como tantas outras, Doom Town é mais uma excelente banda dos anos 00 que ninguém dá muita bola por aqui… por que? Boa pergunta! Eu sinceramente não saberia responder.

Por fim, o que interessa e que a banda é demais, está na ativa, tá aí pra quem não conhece e se interessou em conhecer, e pra quem já conhecia, poder escutar mais porque vale muito a pena.

A banda iniciou suas atividades em 2010 e em Março do mesmo ano, logo de cara em seu primeiro show, abriram pro Nuclear Family que é uma das bandas paralelas dos caras do Limp Wrist e do Acid Reflux.

Em menos de um ano o Doom Town ganhou grande destaque na cena do sul de St.Louis, contando com Ashley Hohman (baixo e vocal), Ben Smith (Guitarra, vocal e ex Corbeta Corbata), Bryan Clarkson (guitarra) e Shaun Morrisey (bateria) também integrante do Humanoids Fame. Com claras influências dos lendários (Los Angeles) X, e dos suécos do Masshysteri, o Doom Town acaba por fazer um som com uma cara bem garage, parecido com o que o Hex Dispensers faz, só que de uma forma mais “sombria” levando em consideração que suas letras falam sobre fúria, degradação, ansiedade, paranóia e coisas do tipo, tudo de forma bem peculiar, crua e suja.

Em outubro de 2010 eles lançam seu primeiro registro em K7, uma demo alto intitulada e com 6 sons, apesar de gravação meio suja, eu devo admitir que a coisa é indispensável pra quem coleciona ou curte não ficar só no Mp3 e ter o material físico. Não tenho certeza, mas é provável que se você der sorte ainda encontre alguma cópia no discogs.

Em novembro de 2011 o Doom Town lança o primeiro EP 7″ também auto intitulado, que foi produzido pelo Hajji Husayn que toca no Red Dons e obviamente, saiu pela New Dark Ages. Mesmo tendo só 4 musicas (menos musicas que a demo) já fica notória a gravação mais legal em termos de qualidade sonora, as musicas ainda na mesma pegada mas com mais maturidade, ainda que não haja um espaço de tempo grande entre esse registro e o anterior, no total também ficou ótimo. Destaque mais que merecido pra Ashley Hohman que aparece mais nesse EP e destrói tudo nos vocais excelentes. vide “Shrouded in mystery” que na minha opinião é de longe a melhor música do disco.

Ainda em 2011, um mês após o lançamento do EP a banda faz as malas e sai rumo a sua primeira tour européia com 18 shows que foram de Dezembro de 2011 à Janeiro de 2012, no blog dos caras tem um Tour Journal bem interessante sobre a passagem da banda pelo velho continente com fotos, videos e historinhas engraçadas.

Então é isso, deixo com vocês a Demo e o EP dessa banda classe A, que mostra que nem só dos anos 70 e 80 vive o punk. Divirtam-se!!!”

The Role Models are featured on the Heavy Hearts benefit Compilation.

“Earlier this year our friend (and Sorry & The Sinatras/ex-Trashlight Vision drummer) Lenny Thomas was hospitalised with a pretty severe injury to his foot. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse and became further complicated by his pre-existing diabetes and Lenny was hospitalised for quite some time. He’s slowly but surely on the mend now but medical bills are piling up and he’s likely to lose months of work if he’s even able to go back.

So we decided to do something to help out Len with his medical bills and lost wages. We contacted our friends in the music community – bands that we played with, people who we’d toured with, friends’ bands and bands that we were fans of – and the response was overwhelming. Today we’re very proud to announce the release of Heavy Hearts, a benefit compilation with all proceeds to be divided between Lenny’s bills and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.

Released on April 6th, the compilation will feature songs from the likes of The Wildhearts, Michael Monroe, Piggy D (Rob Zombie), Steve Conte & the Crazy Truth, Eureka Machines, Sorry & The Sinatras, The Loyalties, and many more. A lot of artists were kind enough to donate rare or previously unreleased tracks to make this compilation even more special!

A full track listing is available by clicking the artists link and the album will be available through the website from 10AM (UK time) on Friday April 6th.

– Rich Jones // Dave Kerr // Scott Sorry”

 

Mastering the new Loyalties LP.

The Loyalties from London include members of The Yo-Yos, The Black Halos, Deadline, and the Role Models have 2 EP releases and split 7″ singles with The Supersuckers, Duff McKagan’s Loaded and Radio Dead Ones. The band released their debut album So Much For Soho on Devil’s Jukebox (UK/EU/USA), Vinyl Junkie (Japan) and Yeah Right (Canada).

Ricky C Quartet‘s debut 7″ reviewed at the Faster and Louder Blog:

“Remember 10-15 years ago when there were hardly any good English punk bands? Now there are so many great ones that even the “side projects” are freaking phenomenal. Seriously, the current crop of U.K. punk groups has to be the best in at least 20 years. And when members of The Blowouts, Johnny Throttle, and the Ten-O-Sevens start a band based on a mutual love for Slaughter and the Dogs and Radio Birdman, you just know it’s gonna be the balls. The Ricky C Quartet, formed just last year, have dropped their debut single. “Small Species”, another No Front Teeth/Rapid Pulse Records co-release, brings to mind the harder edge of classic Brit-punk infused with a heaping dose of Aussie adrenaline. In short, this band is 100 percent as advertised. Both tracks here deliver some snarling rock n’ roll with pissed-off lyrics and red-hot guitar leads, backed by bass lines that’ll get your booty bouncing. And let’s face it: nobody spews profanity with the panache of the English. A sing-along refrain of “Don’t fuck around me!”, so delightfully acrimonious here, wouldn’t sound nearly as cool if these guys were from, say, New Jersey. Both “Small Species” and “Tonight” imbue a profuse fuck-off sentiment with serious catchiness – a formula that can’t lose when it’s done well. All in all, this is an absolutely ripping debut record. Nothing fancy or unexpected here – just great punk played furiously and brilliantly. Where haveall the boot boys gone?”
