DS Exclusive: 2014 – A Year in Concert Pictures (milhouse)

Posted by milhouse on Wednesday, December 31, 2014 at 12:43 PM (PST)

2015 is nearly upon us, and as visions of upcoming concerts dance through my mind, I reflect on the year that has passed. I think about the concerts I was able to attend, and those that slipped through the cracks. The new friends made, the old friends re-acquainted, the massive heaps of beer, bruises and cuts, hangovers, lost voices, and of course the photos – without which many memories may have gone by the gutter. My photos are like my children, and having to choose favorites just seems so unfair, but there are clearly some standouts.

The year’s first show featured a Dying Scene favorite, Chuck Ragan, with some other incredible moments over the year including joining Bum City Saints for a studio session in February, the annual trip to Las Vegas for Punk Rock Bowling in May, Pirates Press‘ 10th Anniversary shows in October, interviewing Blood or Whiskey in November, and more that I’m sure I’m leaving out. To my surprise and delight, I was able to see one of my all-time favorite bands, Cock Sparrer, four times this year, as well as having the opportunity to present Colin with a framed concert print of himself. Outstanding! Swingin’ Utters, La Plebe, Lagwagon, and others were among many bands whom I would get to see multiple times over the course of 2014.

I have narrowed down my collection to 30 of my favorite shots that I took during 2014, and some of the winners include Nihilist Cunt, Bishops Green, Anti-Nowhere League, Cock Sparrer (of course), Bum City Saints, Street Dogs, Laura Jane Grace, The Adicts, Angelic Upstarts, Total Chaos, and more. Have a look at a year in concert pictures below. Above shot not included in the 30 is PPR owner Skippy stage-diving at an after-party Cock Sparrer show – epic.

Big thanks to Skippy of PPR, Ian of Chapter Eleven, Jay from DS, Alberto from La Plebe, and everyone else who helped make this year amazing!!

The time had arrived and the rain had subsided just in time for Cock Sparrer to take the stage at Pirates Press‘ 10th Anniversary ‘Rock The Ship’ party. The English quintet is one of my all-time favorite bands and in addition to their longevity, influence, and musicality, the mates are a true stand-up bunch of guys. If memory serves correctly, the set began with the iconic sirens of ‘Riot Squad’. Classics like ‘Argy Bargy’, ‘Watch Your Back’, ‘I Got Your Number’, ‘England Belongs to Me’, and many more would be featured, and I knew it was going to be an amazing set. Cock Sparrer hasn’t released new material in quite some time, but that doesn’t stop anyone from getting giddy as a little schoolgirl in preparation to see them.

One thing that is clearly evident is that the guys are having the time of their lives on stage. Smiles abound as Darryl and Mick and Steve all dance and gallop around while pausing for cameras and even touching on some choreographed dance moves. It was really a treat to see, and Cock Sparrer shows no signs of slowing down. After my three songs in the photo pit, I chose to live out one of my dreams and go side stage with the streetpunk legends. Of course the set rounded out with the obligatory ‘We’re Comin’ Back’, which they always end their set with, and they always stay true to their promise.

The night wasn’t over though, as after a little chat and liquid rejuvenation we were off to Bottom of The Hill for the after-party show with Downtown Struts, Workin’ Stiffs, and a *Special Guest*.

Check out all the shots from Cock Sparrer’s set at ‘Rock The Ship’ below.

Thanks again to all the Pirates Press crew for everything you do!

Album Review: Noi!se – “The Scars We Hide”

Posted by griffintainment on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 1:53 PM (PST)

With a bevy of 7” singles, EP’s and a compilation album under their belts, not to mention their almost ceaseless touring schedule, it’s hard to believe that The Scars We Hide is Noi!se’s first proper full length. The Seattle (Tacoma) foursome have made a mighty imprint on the punk scene the past few years considering they’re more or less just getting started. With loyal fans among their peers as well as in the general public, Noi!se is fast becoming one of the more exciting bands in the scene to keep an eye on.

The Scars We Hide is twelve songs of blistering punk rock power with a sharp melodic sensibility and some of their tightest arrangements we’ve heard from the boys thus far.

This band has established a precedent of beginning their releases in a big way. One of Noi!se’s best songs, ‘Rising Tide’, kicks off the EP of the same name, while another one of their best songs, ‘Idle Action’, kicks off the compilation release Pushing On, from 2012. In the same way, The Scars We Hide’s first song, ‘Rank and File’ is another of the band’s best compositions, with a simple bass line feeding into a frenzy of crushing guitars (both rhythm and lead), before (vocalist/bassist) Matt’s easily identifiable vocals introduce us to the record. 
The song features the bands trademark gang vocal’d chorus’ and blistering guitar breaks.

This is a blueprint the band follow throughout the album, keeping things at an absolutely breakneck pace, with Matt and (guitarist/vocalist) Nate trading verses back and forth, with each succeeding delivery more aggressively impassioned than the last.

Drummer Kenny and lead guitarist Jesse round out the band nicely, not only with the addition of their voices to the fat, delicious chorus’, but with their raw talent. The drumming is particularly impressive on tracks like ‘Silenced Voices’, an anthemic rave up that makes one want to find the nearest mosh pit and start slamming bodies. As well as closing track ‘The Future’s Warning’. Take it from someone who hit skins in a punk band years ago, it isn’t always an easy genre to drum to. Jesse’s guitar is evident and front and centre in nearly every track on Scars, with particularly memorable appearances in the impossibly catchy ‘Pawn in the Game’ and the crusher ‘So I Drift Away’.

Elsewhere, ‘How We Made It Through’ is a great song about coming through the shit, living to tell the tale and rather than letting it get the best of you, choosing instead to craft a more meaningful existence from it. While ‘Statistics’ impressively charges from nail gun Agnostic Front-like hardcore in its verses to catchy The Business-like street punk in its chorus’.

Street Punk/Oi! music isn’t the most inventive subgenre in punk rock, but it is among the most exciting. A genre born in the streets of the U.K., it has had a steady and ever growing batch of impressive North American bands flying its flag since the 80’s. Noi!se impressively straddles the line between being a band that sound like the best of classic 80’s Oi! music, mixed with the sensibilities and gritty sheen of today’s street punk elite. They’re hands down one of the best bands in punk rock right now and The Scars We Hide is not only their finest moment, but may be the best punk rock record of 2014 so far. A record my needle will be licking the grooves of on an almost consistent basis for the foreseeable future.

Noi!se is a band that makes me want to drop everything and start a punk band of my own again. And what higher praise can you give a group than that?

5/5 Stars
