Recess Records Details Upcoming Releases, Has Harsh Words for Record Store Day

Recess Records

Recess Records has a hot take on Record Store Day, lashing out against the increasingly commercial and bloated “holiday” happening tomorrow, April 18th. The home of all things Todd Congelliere released a hilariously damning photo (see thumbnail below for enlarged version) and made a statement via their Facebook regarding the current difficulties independent labels are having making records when the presses are clogged with unnecessary represses and hipster collectables: Apparently small labels aren’t allowed to press vinyl anymore. The clueless pawns who aimlessly …

Review + Gallery: Screeching Weasel, The Dwarves, The Queers and Potato Pirates in Denver

Gothic Theatre

Pirates and Dwarves and Queers and Weasels oh my! It was quite the lineup of bands, helmed by the likes of notorious punk front men Joe Queer, Blag Dahlia and Ben Weasel. Over the years each has defiantly proclaimed their bands as the “best in the world” and each has offended the masses on more than one occasion. Simply having them in one building together was potentially catastrophic. It was the kind of sold out show that guaranteed bruises, beer …

Gallery + Review: Screeching Weasel, Dwarves, The Queers, Flatfoot 56

Screeching Weasel

11/22 @ Concord Music Hall, Chicago, IL I didn’t know before I saw them, but Flatfoot 56 is exactly the sound I expect to come out of the South side of Chicago. My very Irish, Catholic sponsor grew up on the South side and as a Celt-punk band that has a lot of symbolic lyrical lines, he would be all about them. They played a lot of songs off of their 2012 release Toil,  including “Winter in Chicago” and “I Believe …
