DS Staff Picks – Top 10 Albums of 2014 (vdubowner)

Posted by vdubowner on Friday, December 19, 2014 at 9:38 AM (PST)

Hey folks, I’m Bruno and I’ve been contributing stories on Dying Scene since last year. Before I joined DS my music repertoire consisted mostly of bands I first heard about 20 years ago. I wasn’t even trying to get to know new bands or stay up to date with the scene. So in my case 2014 was all about catching up and making great discoveries. In fact, I’ve been so impressed by some releases from new and less known bands that I had to give them a spot on my list, I even ended up kicking out some releases by well known veteran acts. Like it or not, here’s my top 10 below.

Random Cover Song: Simply Kung Fu – “Rock You Like A Hurricane” (Scorpions)

Posted by Johnny X on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 6:06 PM (PST)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from Southern California skate-punk act Simply Kung Fu (Feat. Smarpunk Co-Founder Graham Day) and their rendition of the famous Scorpions tune “Rock You Like A Hurricane” off their 1984 album “Love At First Sting”.  Simply Kung Fu’s version was recorded for Fearless Records’ “Punk Goes Metal” compilation but apparently missed the deadline and was never released.

You can listen to both versions of “Fortunate Son” below.

New Video: Lagwagon and Swingin’ Utters post tour documentary teaser

Posted by jaystone on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 3:58 PM (PST)

As faithful readers of Dying Scene are no doubt aware, Lagwagon and the Swingin’ Utters are just about to wrap up their recent US/Canadian tour. The kind folks at Raw Cut Media caught up with the legendary bands over the course of three days in the Great White North and filmed what’s sure to be a pretty compelling tour documentary. The official teaser video for that very documentary is now available: check it out below.

Lagwagon are touring in support of Hang, released October 28th on Fat Wreck Chords. The Utters, meanwhile, are touring in support of their latest, Fistful of Hollow, released November 11th on that same label. Dying Scene was at the Boston show: check out our photos here, and read our recent interview with Lagwagon’s Joey Cape here while you’re at it.

I’m not too proud to admit that when news broke a few months ago that Lagwagon and Swingin’ Utters were not only putting out new albums around the same time but teaming up for a tour surrounding those release, I had more than a momentary lapse into “16-year-old fanboy excitement mode.” You see, I’ve got a bit of a confession to make. It may result in the permanent revocation of my punk card, but whatever; I’m 35 years old, it’s been a good run. Though Lagwagon and the Utters have been firmly entrenched on my short list of favorite punk bands, it somehow happened that prior to December 2014, I had never seen either band in concert. (Actually, that’s not necessarily 100% true: I was at Warped Tour 1997, but I’m pretty sure Lagwagon were playing opposite Suicide Machines or something, since I have absolutely no recollection of their set.) 

Anyway, it should probably go without saying that I had December 3rd circled on my calendar from the moment the tour was announced, as that was the day the two bands, alongside opener This Legend, wound their way to Boston’s Brighton Music Hall. As the day approached, however, I became a little tentative about the show. Not about going to it, but about how well it would be received. See, Boston is a bit of a finicky place to play sometimes, particularly for some of the stalwarts of the 1990s punk explosion crowd. So an all ages show on a Wednesday night in December didn’t necessarily give yours truly a case of the warm fuzzies.

It is more than worth mentioning that any trepidation on my part was wildly inappropriate, as the venue was at or near capacity, resulting in a sweaty, raucous show, particularly during Lagwagon’s headlining set. (In the interest of full disclosure, yours truly arrived from suburbia just as This Legend were finishing their set. Early shows make for many a show-opener missed.) Though the show was admittedly not without its technical difficulties, the general consensus is that the issues plagued the bands more than they did the crowd. No names are necessary, but I think we all know that there are numerous bands well in to their second or third (or fourth…) decades that continue to phone in performances night after night, essentially serving as almost unrecognizable shells of their former selves. It should be stated for the record that both the Utters and Lagwagon remain at-or-near the top of their live performance game, and both have put out some of the more highly-touted releases of their respective careers in the very recent past. The current wave of popular punk bands…if there is such a wave…should take notes (and with two-thirds of up-and-coming Boston punk band The Barroom Heroes in attendance, it seems that’s exactly what was happening).
