This next post comes courtesy from our friends FODDER from Sacramento. Coincidentally, this band contains members from VERRATERISCH, and as we all know, we're all big fans them too! This demo contains 10 tracks of raw D-Beat the likes of Early Discharge or later Varukers... Not too crusty, with a hardcore/UK82 twist. We actually got a chance to play with these guys the last time we were in Sacramento, and while there wasn't that many people at the show, they still managed to shine. Definitely fun stuff and something to keep your eye on. Hopefully, I can one day convince these guys to drive down and play in LA. In the meantime, you can listen to this demo and thank me later.
This demo is still in print, and if you enjoy my download, please support the band by buying their tape. I believe Mata La Musica carries some down here in LA.
I'm not going to be posting up anything new for the next week, as I'll be outta town. Tomorrow I'll try to post up the final dates for the Rayos X tour, so people can know whats up with that!

Sid sings, but he can't play bass? Who would have thought!?! Not me, that's for sure. Actually, I think he might be a better bass player than a vocalist. But that's just my opinion. Anyways, after the Sex Pistols disbanded in 1978, many of the other Pistols went on to release their own solo projects. This album released posthumously about 10 months after Sid's death. It mainly contains covers and live recordings of songs where, of course, Sid sings. This album was released in December 1979 and Sid Vicious died of intentional Heroin overdose on February 1979.
I'll be out of town next week, so no new suicide monday next week. See you all on tour!

Another blast from the past, courtesy of our West Side friends, Poliskitzo. This was a self released split with another band, called Ratas. Both of these bands hail from the west side of LA (Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lennox, etc...). We all know that La Banda Ya Basta become Poliskitzo, but I don't really know what ever became of Ratas (although, I do know the singer played rhythm guitar in Poliskitzo for a bit). I don't exactly remember when this CD was released, but I do believe it was about 5 years ago at the most. Ratas play punk more akin to fast hardcore and while it's not bad, the Ya Basta side really steals the show. As always, melodic/anthemic sing along punk you can dance too. Great stuff! Now download it!
I reuploaded this for everyone that is still interested. Download here: Ya Basta/Ratas

This has been in the works for a while... A long while! Originally suppose to have been released about a year ago, it was held back due to us not liking the recordings, being off key, etc... Here's a little preview for you guys. I'm going to have these with me on the Rayos X tour for sale. If you wanna buy one through mail order, email me to firstname.lastname@example.org
