Local Stuff You Should Know #14 (New AZPunk 12" Vinyl Comp!!)

Music, free music, and a contest for more free music

Congrats to the two winners of Casket Life's Building a Better Disaster CD, Terry Albin from Mesa and Sean Stroud from Phoenix. Thanks for playing, guys! We'll be sending out your CDs real soon.

New AZPunk comp Personality Disorder front cover

First off, we want to send out a huge thanks to Dario and RadioPhoenix.org for having us by for a couple hours last night, and giving us an opportunity to play some tracks from our brand new AZPunk comp, Personality Disorder. This comp isn't like the usual comps we've done in the past. We figured that with a new rethinking of the website, the comps could use a good restructuring as well. So, if you haven't spent a measly $3 to buy one of our original AZPunk.comps vols. 1-6, then hop to it, because once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Personality Disorder is AZPunk's first vinyl 12" record featuring 14 tracks of some killer and (somewhat) diverse local punk rock. Instead of sending out the usual comp S.O.S., and calling out for people to submit songs, we joined forces with Nate from May Cause Dizziness Records, and D.J. Johnny Volume, and personally selected some of our favorite bands. The end result is a mixture of street, hardcore, pop, garage, lo-fi and post-punk rock music that portrays a great sample of the awesome diverse tastes of punk rock that Arizona has to offer in 2010. We're real proud of this new comp, and stoked that we got to work with our friends Nate & J.V.

We'll be releasing more details about the upcoming release show soon, but if you wanna get your ass on a roll early, you can head over to May Cause Dizziness' order page and sign up for pre-orders. This is on blue wax and limited to 250 copies. In the meantime, here's the album's track listing, and some other local music you can get your greedy paws on.

Lead singer, Ben "Fuckin" Barnes gave AZPunk a rundown on how the process of making this album went.

Since the last record, we have collectively had just about all the problems any band could incur: drug and alcohol addiction, rehab, jail, a near-fatal OD, many hospital visits, multiple lineup changes, 3 busted ass vans, evictions, homelessness, car wrecks, DUIs, STDs, nasty breakups, broken hearts, and mostly just being broke.

Casket Life: Building a Better Disaster

A quote from fellow fan, D.J. Johnny Volume, about the album:

Building A Better Disaster... is disaster in of itself that began more then three years ago. Picture it, a band that had tirelessly been putting in the work of touring, recording, rehearsing, writing, putting out records, printing merch, etc... All on their own, rarely with any outside help, implodes. Near fisticuffs on stage opening for their heroes Avail. Not one member of the band wanted to talk to another, and they all lived together! But there was a problem, this band couldn't be over, too many people wouldn't let them. A long time band friend and recent San Francisco resident Danielle Mora called at the critical time to offer an opportunity to record at Fat Wreck Chords' label studio, Motor Studios. So the band did what they always had done to get to SF, played a couple of shows and sold merch at discounted prices to raise the money to go record. Breakdowns, tensions, and fights arose, and ended with one member departed. The band returned home feeling good about the sounds, even if the van making some new noises. So being broke, with a rattling van and two balled tires, complete with expired tags and no insurance, they did what any sensible band would do and went on tour! The aptly nick named Rubber Bands and Duct Tape Tour, as that seemed to be what was holding everything together. Once one member had been bailed out of jail, and one got back from rehab they headed out for a stint across the mid-west, part of the south and through Texas. CL returned on a high note, with some new fans, zero merch, and during the highest gas prices of 2008 even, some money in pocket! They took the little bit they had, and headed to Vegas for the annual Punk Rock Bowling Tournament and bet it all on black! They invaded people's rooms and took their beds, drank everyone else's drinks, and won enough to pay for what you hold in your hands! This is just a snapshot of what it took to get this recording out, and the bottom line is that it was all done out of love. And on a personal note I would just like to thank them for doing so, thank you for picking this up, listening to and reading, and to anyone who gave this circus a show to play, a floor to sleep on, a drink to be stolen, a mixture of drugs they shouldn't have taken, for some of this we apologize, but you were Deuced!

Greenhaven video: Southbound

This video was made a while ago, but I noticed it circulating around facebook yesterday. Our friends, and local stoner-punk rockers, Greenhaven, made a video for their song Southbound filed at our old beer hole, Jugheads. But honestly, nothing gets me hotter than watching Jay's sexy ass shred in front of a well-placed AZPunk.com banner. Oh yea baby.

As an added bonus, here's a pretty awesome collection of local bands that are giving away their music for free. Have at it!
