Local Stuff You Should Know #13

Too much radical to write about on a Friday afternoon

We wanted to send out a HUGE thanks to Sarah Ventre and the whole Blaze 1330AM team for inviting us over the guest DJ the radio show this last Tuesday. Unfortunately, if you missed it, you're pretty much in the same boat as us being s.o.l., because their computer fried destroying all of the recordings of that day, so no MP3 copy for us. Wah wah :/. That does, however, mean you're off the hook for not listening. But if you did happen to tune in, you would have heard us play some killer local punk rock, and talk a little bit about some of the pretty cool things AZPunk has in store for 2010.

One of them, is that we have teamed up with local vinyl freak, Nate from May Cause Dizziness Records, and everyone's favorite country punk, D.J. Johnny Volume to create a local compilation album titled Personality Disorder, our very first 12" vinyl record that will feature 14 tracks of what? You guessed it. Local punk rock! The album's been mastered and is in the prep stages of getting pressed. It's a departure from our usual AZPunk.comp volumes we've released in the past. We're real excited about this album, and to have worked with two of our good buddies on organizing everything.

The other super awesome bit of news that you missed, is that late 2010 will see the return of AZPunk's coveted Thrash of the Titans 2 Battle. If you missed out on either seeing or participating in our first Thrash of the Titans show in December of '07, you're gonna get a second chance. TOTT1 was a huge success, and we got such a great response from everyone, we just had to throw another Thrash blowout this year.

There's a whole shit load of details that need to be squared away before we start throwing out the gritty info for both Thrash of the Titans 2 and Personality Disorder 12", so keep checking back with AZPunk.com to find out the steez on these and everything else that's going on in AZ.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, here's the track listing of songs we played on the radio. It's all local punk, because we forgot our Gorge Strait albums at home. Just kidding. We don't actually own any George Strait. Cizmar bought them all up.

  1. Cagematch - Down The Sky
  2. Parkway Wretch - Andrew Lawson
  3. Big Vinny And The Cattle Thieves - Sunday Morning
  4. Where Eagles Dare - Despite The Casualties
  5. The Wongs - Nothing To Me
  6. Swing Ding Amigos - Pinokaik
  7. The Impossible Ones - Unlucky Me
  8. Mob 40s - Never Gonna Run
  9. JFA - Preppy
  10. Labor Party - Beat, Bored, Broken and Burnt
  11. Casket Life - I'm not an Addict
  12. Zany Guys - Hardcore

Speaking of everything else going on in AZ, here's a brief recap of shit going down.

May Cause Dizziballs competing in Punk Rock Bowling

May Cause Dizziballs competing in Punk Rock Bowling

Nate, Johnny Volume, and all of the kids with May Cause Dizziness Records got a team together to compete at this year's 12th Annual Punk Rock Bowling competition in Las Vegas May 6-9. Our resident AZPunker (and Chris' lovely wifey) Kelly Lawson (aka udontknowme) threw together this logo for the league's jerseys. Nice work Kel! Word has it that the May Cause Dizziballs team mitght even be writing a recap for us when they get back (*nudge*nudge). Hopefully after all the drinking, gambling, not to mention bowling and all the freakin bands, they'll be coherent enough to take pictures and remember everything. We're rooting for you guys! Just remember, if Fat Mike offers you a shot, don't take it. Trust me.

Landmine Marathon video shoot & contest

Our local metal brethren, Landmine Marathon, just got back from tour, and have all kinds of shit lined up including a video shoot happening this Monday. Taken from blatantlocalism.net:

CASTING CALL: no joke, we are filming a music video on Monday 3/29 and would love to get some help from our friends as extras... It's gonna be a house show vibe... Come party with us! Food and drink provided. It will be Monday March 29th in central Phoenix from 6-8pm... It will end in time for the doomriders show at rhythm... For ALL the details and to be on the list you MUST email landmine_marathon@yahoo.com and Matt will send you all the details and release form etc. We'd love to have you there and to have people going apeshit.

Also, they're having a pretty rad contest. Enter for your chance to win a sweet ass guitar case with the cover art from their debut album, Sovereign Decent on Prosthetic Records. This isn't an AZPunk contest, so check out the details on the flyer for info on how to enter.

Flogging Molly pics by Matt Chandler

Matt Chandler hit us up a couple weeks before St. Patty's day asking if he could be AZPunk's photo journalism representative to the Flogging Molly show. We weren't going to be caught dead at that brofest, so we said "sure". Worked out pretty well for both parties, because he got a free press pass, and we get to show off some of his cool photography he took at the show. Nice work Matt! If you wanna see more of his work, skip on over to his corner of the innerwebs.

No clue on what date's they're playing, but if you go, you'll be able to catch Lenguas Largas, Shark Pants, Rumspringer and our boys BroLoaf! Wow, BroLoaf? Our little Titan title holders are all growd up! Thanks Rial for planting my eyes on this info!

A little late addition to the article, but relevent none-the-less. Everyone's favorite local hardcore little engine that could, Out For Revenge is finally pushing forward with their awaited album Black Market Status, and has released the awesome cover art drawn by Craig Holloway. There's also a pretty decent review of the album on StereoKiller.com.
