RR022 The Funhouse Strippers – Kick out the lights CD
Oregon continues to pump out amazing band after amazing band. Coming out of the Portland/Salem area is the latest in a long line of great new bands – THE FUNHOUSE STRIPPERS….Imagine a cross between a Radios Appear-era RADIO BIRDMAN, THE SHIFTERS and CHUCK BERRY. For fans of THE SHIFTERS, this band contains the drummer and guitarist of the aforementioned powerhouse band coupled with members of previous bands such as the Trust Fund Babies, The Shrinks, the Widgets, Eddie Machete & The Hacks, the Mopps, the Puritans, the Undefeated and Surrender Dorothy. The songs on this CD are high-energy punk ROCK N ROLL blasts that feature great vocals that sound like Rob Younger (RADIO BIRDMAN) coupled with great female backing vocals. The music is up-tempo SHIFTERS-style punk rock n roll that features some well placed piano (NOT KEYBOARDS!) (ala RADIO BIRDMAN) that perfectly compliments the raw, rocking sound and brings a welcomed break from the new wave trend currently sweeping the punk scene. Get back to the roots with this CD now and see em live when they venture out of the great northwest!!!!

RR019 Tommy Gun + the Bullets – Something New 7”
Great debut single from SFs newest punkers…3 upbeat, catchy tunes here that will draw comparisons to THE BELTONES…yep, this is nearly that good ( I said nearly, cause no ones as good as the Beltones right?)..anways, this band is made up of a bunch of local guys that have played in too many bands to list….frontman Ross has been hailed as the punk rock brad pitt, so you might wanna get it just to stroke off to his picture on the back sleeve…they’ve been playing constantly in the sf area with bands such as the BODIES, SMUT PEDDLERS, etc….they got new tunes already recorded and this aint gonna be repressed so you better get yours now...….

RR018 RADIO REELERS – RUNNIN’ OUT 7”
After a great debut single and two full lengths under their belt, SFs RADIO REELERS are back with a brand new 3 song 7”. After failed attempts with the Spites, Trust Fund Babies and the Shrinks, They have finally got it right! Their previous single (Zaxxon Virile Action) and 2 x LPs (Radio Blast + Dead Beat Records) have accumulated a slew of great reviews and has gained enough momentum for the mugs to head over to Europe for a month. This record was actually pressed specifically for the tour so the songs are hot off the presses. The RADIO REELERS produce a super energetic sound by combining mid-tempo, super catchy chord progressions combined with great (well good) dualling vocals. Imagine the Devil Dogs mixed with “All Skrewed Up”-Era Skrewdriver. …Well not quite but still better than most of the garbage out there...….

RR017 THE WORKIN’ STIFFS – MY GHETTO 7”
Call it the swan song, call it the final chapter, call it what you will. But what it is, is the last recording from SF’s BEST band of the late 90’s early 2000’s (well along with the Swingin’ Utters. There must be something about bands that use an apostrophe to shorten a word in their name). Anyways this 7” has 4 songs that will burn the house down. 1 song (My Ghetto) was previously released on the Battle for the Airwaves Vol.2 (see RR013) and was pretty much a unanimous decision as being the best song on the comp. The other 3 songs were recorded in the same recording session and are unreleased and have gone unheard for nearly 3 years! These songs capture the Stiffs during their most aggresive period to date. The songs are loud, fast and of course, catchy as hell. Be sure to put your cup in before you listen to this as your sac will be split open and your spaghetti strands will be splattered all over the wall....

THE CADAVERS – 1993-1996 7"
This is a 3 song 7” from this pre-BODIES band...These songs have an interesting story behind them as I believe they are destined to be kept from the public...The songs themselves come from 1993 and were originally released on a 6 song demo tape that the band released themselves that was limited to a mere 100 copies. Legend has it, that while surfing, the tapes were left in the trunk of the bands car and most of them melted in the hot NOR CAL sun. The band broke up before more tapes were made, so a very limited number of those tapes exist on the planet...Fast forward to 2003 and I had just released this 7” and had a box of 100 in my car to send out to a distributor. I come out the next morning and my car window is smashed and along with some other stuff, the box is gone. Bad luck for the theives since they probably thought there was something good in the box. Imagine their surprise when they opened up the box and had a stack of CADAVERS 7”s!! Needless to say, I am sure they ened up in a dumpster somewhere, thus limiting this thing even more than before....as for the tunes themselves, THE CADAVERS are basically THE BODIES before we were called THE BODIES. 3 of the 4 members are the same including the singer. pretty much sounds like lost BODIES songs, although a little faster, rawer and with female back up vocals...and YES these songs are different than the 3 on the CADAVERS 7” released last year on NOMA BEACH RECORDS....Actually the 3 songs on the NOMA BEACH single are the other 3 on the original demo tape......if you like THE BODIES you'll love THE CADAVERS!!!....Released Aug. 2003...

This was a new band (now-defunct) from SF that will kick your nuts in. it is THE SHRINKS.
