Tim Timebomb streams “Drink Up And Go Home” featuring Street Dogs

Posted by Johnny X on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 10:55 PM (PST)

Holy crap.  I really thought I was done writing stories about Tim Timebomb and Friends (the solo project from Rancid’s Tim Armstrong) but I guess not.  At least I’m happy to report that this new song “Drink Up And Go Home” features one of my current favorite acts in the punk scene – Street Dogs.  You can stream the rather mellow collaboration below.

Tim Timebomb will be releasing a self-titled compilation album on April 15th, featuring 36 songs that were released during the song-a-day project.  Check out the track list here.

This compilation was originally released in a limited CD run, but this will be the first time it will be available digitally.

Sundowner (Lawrence Arms guitarist Chris McCaughan) recently stopped by Little Elephant Studios to record a short live set, which he plans on releasing as a 7-inch on June 10th through Fat Wreck Chords. Here’s what McCaughan had to say about all of this:

“They (Little Elephant) record high quality video sessions in the living room of their house. I performed four songs and in the end we thought the audio recordings turned out awesome too. So they’ll be rolling out the video footage and thanks to the lovely people at Fat Wreck, the audio tracks will come out as a 7-inch.”

You can watch a video of Chris playing his song “Cemetery West” live at Little Elephant and check out the tracklisting for the Little Elephant Sessions 7-inch below.

Sundowner’s latest album Neon Fiction was released on September 3rd, 2013 through Fat Wreck. Head over here to read our review of the record.

Social Distortion guitarist Jonny “Two Bags” Wickersham was recently interviewed by San Francisco Bay Guardian, where he talked about his debut solo album Salvation Town, which was released last week on Isotone Records. Asked how long it took to make the album, Jonny replied:

“I worked on it really sporadically over the past couple of years — Social D was very busy after we put out Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, and we were constantly on the road for two and a half years. On breaks in between tour runs I’d go in the studio and work on it a little bit. It’s actually been finished for over a year, aside from the artwork, and this is a pretty good time to put it out because Social D has been on a break for while.”

Social Distortion are currently on hiatus from touring. For a while, the band has been working on a new album, which will be their first since 2011′s Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes.

When last we caught up with Chuck Ragan, he was in the midst of a grueling run of thirty-seven shows in thirty-seven days on last year’s Revival Tour. While things on the tour seemed to be firing on all cylinders, there was at least some amount of trepidation about the amount of constant balancing that needed to be done in order to keep such a hectic schedule going: “I’ve got a ton of plates spinning, and I either need to start carefully taking them off those points, or they’re all gonna start crashing.”

Fast-forward a year, and though still busy, a more-relaxed Ragan was able to carve out some downtime and recharge the batteries. “ I feel it revived me in a lot of ways. I’ve had a lot of time at home the past six, seven months.” As we’ve discussed here previously, that more relaxed, hopeful attitude of gratitude translates loud and clear on Till Midnight (SideOneDummy Records), Ragan’s fourth solo studio album.

Forgoing his typical Revival Tour plans, 2014 finds Ragan and his Camaraderie lineup (longtime collaborators Joe Ginsburg and Jon Gaunt, plus David Hidalgo Jr. on drums and Todd Beene on pedal steel) co-headlining a tour with The White Buffalo (Jake Smith). Touring ” a little smarter rather than harder” is the name of the game this time out. Despite the amount of work that needs to be done before tour kicks off later this week, Ragan was able to carve some time out of his schedule for a chat about his partners (the White Buffalo and Social Distortion‘s Jonny Two Bags) for the upcoming tour, the differences in the writing and recording processes between Covering Ground (Ragan’s last album) and Till Midgnight, and maybe a hint at an acknowledgement of Hot Water Music‘s twenty-year anniversary. Check out our full interview below.
