The All Brights (Surf Punk) Premiere Featured Stream For “Stand Up Pat L. Board” From New EP

Sometimes, ya just gotta let the basser think he’s an important member of the band. It’s not often that The All Brights true front men, Big Wave Dave and Mattsimum Waves relinquish the microphone, but for one song on the new EP The White Album, they handed vocals duties over to basssist, Pat L. Board. When we asked Mr. Board about his shining moment on the track “Stand Up Pat L Board” he told us: “This is the tale of Pat L. Board and his misadventures toward manhood. Without the Mr. Miyagi-esque help of my bandmates, Mattsimum Waves and Big Wave David, the ‘frontman’ you all know and worship today may never have been born. In this most epic of epics (2 minutes and 47 seconds), you shall hear the story of initial defeat and eventual triumph of our glorious hero of the beach: Pat L. Board. Shaka.” Give it a listen below and then let the dudes know if you think Pat should get more mic time or if he should just stick to slappin’ those four strings!

Album Review: The All Brights – ‘…Are Wild For The Night!’

Gone are the days that a band’s debut release sounds like it was recorded inside a garbage can (see NOFX’s mid-80’s recording). …Are Wild For The Night!, the debut EP from The All Brights, is now available digitally and on CD from Red Scare Industries. The band is tight, the vocals are on pitch, and the sound quality is so good it’s as if the band members have been here before. And in fact they!; The All Brights consist in part of former members from Good Riddance and the Loved Ones.

As far as punk bands go, though, The All Brights and the hardcore Good Riddance couldn’t resemble each other less. The playful and straight-forward sound of The All Brights is reminiscent of classic recordings by the Descendents, All, and early Bouncing Souls, while they’re lyrics make fun of privileged white beach bums – and themselves – and have earned the band the label “yacht punk.” They don’t want to hear about the Middle-East, Catholic priests, or the CIA; they just want to surf. With songs titles like “Hell on a Surfboard” and “Sunscreen Blues,” The All Brights join in on the long tradition of Southern California musicians singing about themes touched on in Rock and Roll since the days of The Beach Boys.

Throw in some faux-Ravi Shankar sitar at the beginning of “Storm the Beach,” a Weird Al-esque satire of the Bouncing Souls’s “East Coast Fuck You” (The All Brights spell W-E-S-T, and shout the names of Pacific coast cities, just as the Souls did in their East Coast equivalent twenty years ago), and about five seconds worth of the Pennywise Bro Hymn (I swear it’s in there!) and we have six songs and sixteen minutes of good times had by all.

That said, …Are Wild For the Nights! feels like a side project, like something long-time punk rockers decided to put together because they were bored. I always wonder about the staying power of bands like this, whether punk fans (and themselves) will take the band seriously, or if it will be a couple of years of partying on beaches and yachts before moving on to something else.  Where The All Brights go from here will be interesting to see – apparently they’re already working on a second EP. Until then, though, this is a solid debut – rockin’, amusing, and enjoyable to listen to.

Punk Rock Bowling: Night One – Manic Hispanic, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes (Bunkhouse Saloon)

Friday night was the first night of official Punk Rock Bowling club shows, so after already being in Vegas for three days, I was itching to get this thing started! It all started with a night of cover songs, featuring Manic Hispanic & Me First and the Gimme Gimmes at Bunkhouse Saloon.

Before the show, we had a Dying Scene game-planning meetup at the Nugget, and you know how punks do with meetings. So, needless to say, I was a bit late to the show, and missed the first-ever show by The All Brights (Sean Sellers of Good Riddance, Dave Hause). Some of my friends who made it said it was a great set though, so I’ll take their word for it.

We got there shortly after Manic Hispanic started their set. I had never seen these guys live, and it was quite the… experience? They busted through some punk rock classics, of course, with the words changed. I’ll admit, I don’t listen to Manic Hispanic much, but it was comical to hear them changing the words to songs like Rancid‘s “Ruby Soho” (“Rudy Cholo”) and The Vandals‘ “Urban Struggle” (“I want to be a cholo”). Kind of like a punk rock/Chicano Weird Al vibe. Fun stuff.

The main attraction, though was Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Everyone’s favorite punk rock cover band switched up the lineup for this performance. Instead of Fat Mike (who was chasing waterfalls with his daughter) on bass, it was Jay Bentley from Bad Religion. Brian Baker (also from BR) filled in on guitar for Chris Shiflett. Baker was pretty quiet most of the set, but Jay Bentley seemed to relish the chance to break free from his more “serious” role in Bad Religion. He was cracking jokes seemingly non-stop, and even did some background dancing when Spike Slawson gave the band a break to do some Uke-Hunt songs solo on the ukulele. It was quite entertaining. Spike was in his normal frontman form, flying through “the hits”. For me though, I think he did a few too many cover songs…

Check out my photos from Manic Hispanic and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes below.



New Band: The All Brights premier two tracks from upcoming debut EP

So there’s a new band you may want to hear about. They’re called The All Brights and they’re from California. You can tell by the beach in the picture. Except one of the guys in the sorta-kinda-top-secret band is named Dave and he used to live in Philly and he’s a pretty loved one in his own right. Another All Bright is also in a band you might have heard of, at least until they bid him good riddance. Also in the band? Well…look up there.

Anyway, the first two songs from this supergroup (am I the first to call them that?) are called “Hell On A Surfboard” and “WCFU,” which is totally a Bouncing Souls ripoff. Check them out below.

The All Brights will be playing their first-ever show alongside Me First And The Gimme Gimmes later this month at Punk Rock Bowling. Sorry…it’s sold out.
