Ottawa-based Oi!/street-punk band The Scally Cap Brats announced today that “Our Storied Past” will be the title to their second full-length album and that they have launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund its release. On their facebook page the band said that:

“For the last couple of months we’ve been working on a new album. Today we can tell you that it is called “Our Storied Past” and will hopefully be released in October through our own label Take A Shot Records. We’ve put our blood, sweat, and tears into this one and we truly believe it is the best work we’ve done to date. It’s a more mature, heartfealt effort than our previous album and is something we allI desperately want to share with the world.

Now, the band is going to need your help to make that happen. We\’ve set up an Indiegogo campaign to fund the release of the album in both CD and vinyl format. We have all the typical perks you would find in such a campaign plus some cool unique ones. Any little bit helps and it would mean the world to the band if you could contribute.

Over the next 30 days of the campaign, we’ll be releasing more details like the song titles, and artwork so stay tuned for that as well.”

The Indiegogo campaign can be found here.

Tough break (sorry for that) for The Old Firm Casuals. The band recently embarked on a full European tour, but suffered a setback when drummer Paul Rivas broke his arm (that’s the X-Ray above). The Bay Area oi punk band (which also includes Lars from Rancid) were forced to cancel their gig at the Punk Rock Holiday Festival in Slovenia. However, they’re hoping to continue the remainder of their tour dates with a few fill-in drummers. Check out the full European rundown here. Get well soon, Paul!

The Old Firm Casuals’ debut album, “This Is War,” is available here.

The Business

I’ve long considered The Business to be one of those bands that I should have seen when I had the chance. I recall being probably 17 when I heard “Smash The Discos” for the first time and feeling like I had already missed the boat. Along with bands like Cock Sparrer and Cockney Rejects and Sham 69, The Business represented such a specific moment in time that, as the years went on, seemed appealing and yet more and more distant.

However, 35 years after their debut (and mine, coincidentally), Micky Fitz and the boys are still at it. However, “the boys” have changed several times over the decades, creating, on paper at least, the impression that The Business circa 2014 were little more than a nostalgia act; Willy Mays playing for the Mets in 1973. Brett Favre playing for the Vikings in 2010. You get the idea. And yet, the band’s 2010 Sailor’s Grave Records release Doing The Business had more than a few bright spots, and their 2014 7-inch “Back In The Day” is one of the highlights of this year in street punk.

I can assure you that the 2014 edition of The Business is anything but a nostalgia act. Alongside high-octane Orlando punks The Attack, the UK four-piece rolled into Church of Boston on an early summer Wednesday evening. Local support came from the Beantown Boozehounds (whom, you might imagine, are a Boston band who fancy themselves a stiff beverage or twelve) and Salita, the new project featuring Kicked In The Head’s Gary Hedrick on vocals. The latter put on one of the more stellar “local opener” gigs that I’ve witnessed in quite some time. If only the sparse Wednesday night crowd had made its way to the front of the venue for any of the first three bands, we could have had ourselves a small but rowdy show for the ages.

Head below to see our photo gallery, featuring each of the night’s four bands.

Photo Gallery: Cock Sparrer at Backstage Bar (PRB club show 5/25/14)

Posted by milhouse on Monday, June 16, 2014 at 1:31 PM (PST)

One of the most memorable moments of the Punk Rock Bowling weekend was being able to see Cock Sparrer in a much more intimate environment than normal – the energy of a small show versus a festival setting is truly night and day.

Our good friends at Pirates Press Records set us up with entry to the ‘surprise’ show, and the performance was incredible. Being surrounded by good friends and familiar faces as one of the most talented and enduring punk acts took the stage was probably the best ‘midway point’ to the weekend that anyone could ask for.

Cock Sparrer had just headlined the PRB main stage the night before, but if you talk to any fan they’ll tell you they could see ‘em seven nights in a row and never tire. I have never left a Sparrer show disappointed; bruised, bloodied, shirtless, and limping – but never disappointed.

The set began (in frequent typical fashion) with “Riot Squad” – the sirens indicate shit is about to kick off. Staying hard the band followed with “Watch Your Back” before “Working”, “Sussed”, “Teenage Heart”, and “What’s It Like To Be Old”. The band really hit the mark with the songs they played – covering most of my favorites including “AU” and “Argy Bargy”. Many songs were repeated, and the band finished the night with the almost obligatory encore of “England Belongs to Me” and “We’re Coming Back”.

Have a look at some of Cock Sparrer’s ‘surprise guest’ set below, as well as the opening bands NASA Space Universe and The Forgotten.

Thanks again to Eric (PPR) and Brian (BCS) for thinking of me!
